shot on a monopod with a 200-400. Pretty much uncropped.

IMonopod is ok for short periods, but this beast screams for a tripod. My aching shoulder. :cry:
Harris :

Handheld, guy, handheld...

I've been shooting this one handheld, and let me tell you, the spontaneity of the lens is incredible. Have a look at :

and tell me you "need" a monopod for this stuff. :lol: :twisted: :twisted: :lol:

Seriously, if you shoot with a monopod, use the full Wimberley head, and that lens sings ! I use a monopod for it sometimes, and with that head, it's just so smooth to use...

When are you ordering one ? :roll: :roll:

Very nice Harris, but other than the stop that you lose with the 300 f4 + 1.4, I don't see it as that much of an improvement. No doubt that this is a wonderful lens (I'd sure like to have one), but you could add this lens to your collection and not get that many shots that are better than what you are already getting.

BTW, Mary paid me to say that.... :twisted:

It is one sweet lens. Those shots of yours were great, awesome lighting.

Harris :

Have your wife call mine. After all, my spouse was supportive of my getting the 200-400mm, so maybe they can find common ground.

Or not. :twisted:

As for my shots, thanks. I just point the camera and let all the automation take over, after all. :wink: Sometime, we'll be in the same place at the same time, and we'll do some of this stuff together. But for me, it's back to west Texas for work tomorrow...
