Was at the zoo late this afternoon to talk to the art director about using some of my images for an upcoming ad campaign, so afterwords I strolled around the zoo for a bout a hour and tried so shots with the 200-400 on a mono pod, the sun was low and it was partly cloudy so the shutter speeds were real low for 400mm. I though overall the lens and VR did very well .
So here are some cheetahs.

Excellent shots Mike, but I really think that you should go back to the 300 f4. I'd be glad to take old, used up 200-400 off of your hands. :biggrin:

Beautiful shots, Mike. Looks like you're putting the 200-400 to lots of good use.

I read the other day where some scientist has proposed introducing these into the wild in North America. Apparently thousands of years ago there used to be a species of cheetah in North America. The prong-horns were their natural prey.

Thanks for the kind words , not sure how that would go over I think a lot of farmers would have sever reservations about the cheetah

Very nice Mike. I am looking forward to going to the zoo when it cools down a bit. I am anxious to try out the 80-400 VR that I got recently.

Sounds good let me know if/when you plan to go maybe we can hook up, the 80-400 will be perfect for the zoo
