    Looks great to me Gary.
  3. Thanks Jimmy

    This is about as much as I would crop a photo and as close as my lens will Auto focus, or kind of the two extremes.
  4. Beautiful as always! I"m just aching to see a pic of that greenie falling in or as you say "jumping in!" Nice going Gary!:wink::biggrin:

    More importantly that lens has great resolving power. I had a Sigma 50-500 that was completely useless at the long end.
  6. Thanks Andy

    It is a little soft out there but the duck was on the other side of the swamp (~50yards) in shadows. It was just a excersise to get a feel for the lens probably not very scientific but I kind of know where not to take a picture.
  7. I think you will find Gary that the first photo being further away will have a greater DOF than on being close enough to be a FF photo. Also were they both taken at the same F stop?
  8. Yes f8
