We still have a few migrants hanging around here in Georgia. I found this Maggie today at the park. This is my first shot of this species in breeding plumage. Amazing how different they look in the fall when their mostly just gray. Had to use some fill flash under the canopy of Maple Leaves.

Very nice. Can you give us some feedback about your lens/d800 combo since you switched bodies?

Thanks

ED

Hey Ed.
I love this lens on the D800. First thing I noticed is that is that it works much better in low light than it did on my D300. Very little searching, even in the shadows.
The AF is also MUCH faster IMO. Check out some of the Tree Swallows in flight photos on my flickr page. I was a little worried about the camera out-resolving my lens myth but what I've found is that my camera and my lenses always out-resolve me. lol
