    My lens just got here. I ran right out and took a few shots. The sun was high and bright. These are hand held.

    Ahhhhhh, another satisfied 300mm owner.....powered by Nikon.
  13. Hey, these are great, Rex! Congratulations on your new lens! You will LOVE it! :smile:

    WOW, you've got baby ducklings ALREADY?! Gosh.... we usually don't see them around here until (ironically) around Mother's Day in May! Right now we've got a mother goose sitting on her nest under the boardwalk right beneath my condo unit. I will start taking photos pretty soon to document her progress and if I'm lucky I'll be able to witness and shoot the babies being hatched. Missed out on that last year, darnit!

    You will absolutely love that lens. Do you have the 1.4 and 1.7 TC's yet? They work great. :smile:

    You bet Frank. You are one of those to blame. Does Nikon send you a commission.

    Thanks Connie, I was surprised to see all those ducklings. I hope things work out for you with the goose.

    Thanks Chris, You know you helped me get it don't you?

    You really helped me with my decision, Frank. I appreciate your help. I bought the 1.4 and I already had the 1.7 to use with the 70-200. I tried both of them out today. They work great.
