  1. This lens is really nice. I went out this week-end to try it out and here are some.
    As usual, constructive comments are welcome.

    The fun begins, Benoit! Great shots! Really liked #2. How close to the animals were you when you took these shots?

    These are as good as they get, Benoit. The color, sharpness and subject isolation are top notch! Is that a little catfish I see in the gull's mouth? :cool:

    They all excellent capture.
    It's a bit odd seeing the gull with fish. I guess I'm more used to seeing them with bread in their beak :D epressed

    Can anyone please tell a very frustrated prospective owner of a 70-200 when Nikon will be able to supply the waiting list here in the UK? :confused:
