Car race shots from an old AF 300mm/f4

  1. I picked up this lens new way back in 1994 for use in air shows. I've neglected it over the years by only occasionally using it.

    I pulled it out this weekend, blew the dust off, and I'm still very happy with the results.

    It may not focus as fast as the latest AF-S, but I think there is still some life in her.

    The light was flat and overcast and it was hard to make the cars "pop". Any suggestions?
