House Sparrow using 300 f2.8

Discussion in 'Birds' started by EdMac, Jun 24, 2007.

  1. This afternoon, I mounted the 300 f2.8 on the D200 and went looking for small birds. I captured this House Sparrow in the tree near my feeder. It had just gotten a seed from the feeder. This is the first that I have used the 300 f2.8 in a while, and it felt good using the big gun again. Comments welcome as always.:smile:


  2. Well Done Ed,

    A 300/2.8 is a fine lens in anybody's lineup and you did well with yours. Nice job Ed!

    Very nicely done Ed. You shouldn't ignore the 300 2.8. It's just too sweet. :smile:

    Nice Ed. The 300 2.8 should be part of everyone's workout routine.

    nicely done Ed, positioned on a nice branch too.

  8. Hi Andy,
    It is a great lens, but sometimes I am just too lazy to mount it. I use the 80-400 a lot handheld. Thanks for your comments.:smile:
  9. Hi Frank,
    There is no question about that. I have gotten some really good stuff with the 300/2.8. Thanks.:smile:
  10. Hi Chris,
    It is a little heavy, but the SideKick makes it handle like a feather LOL.:smile:

    A little heavy is putting it mildly....

    Super images with it.
  12. Hi Wade,
    Thanks for your nice words. I do need to use it more LOL.:smile:
