    Much looking forward to yours Paul...300mm for a month...now that's a real challenge :biggrin:

  5. i'm not scoffing, just saying mucho respect

  7. I'm impressed - and I'll be watching. I thought about doing this, but I need to use my 300/2.8 at a long race weekend in the middle of the month and didn't think I could use just a 300 for a month. Very interested in following your progress - good luck.

    I tell ya, I'm impressed! Shooting with a specialty lens like a 300 ONLY, for a month! That takes some intense creativity, stamina, and ... muscles!
     
  9. eh it's only the F4 - that's easily portable :) 

    and what fun is a challenge if it's not challenging!

    should be interesting to see how far I can stretch my creativeness with this lens
     
  10. What a first pic!

    That's a nice lens and a real challenge, can't wait to see your next posts.....
     
  11. Fantastic first shot- good luck with the heavy hauling for the rest of the month!
     
  12. what better workout than to walk around the woods hauling camera gear? keeps me in shape!

    (Ugh I'm dying here at my desk without my camera - I need to go SHOOT! I keep seeing everyone elses's 2nd shots - I'm bringing my camera with me tomorrow)
     
  13. well storms here have negated me from shooting outside now :(  so the next closest subject gets to suffer! I present to you one of my cats - Addie

  14. oh, what a second shot! This almost makes me regret selling this lens....:Crunk:

    This will be a nice thread to follow....
     
  15. Great first shot! Keep 'em coming!
     
  16. Great cat picture; I've used my 300 for cats, flowers, and a bunch of stuff - terrific lens.

    Two great shots to start with Paul, I have the 300 too but never for one second thought of using it. Not because of the weight, I just couldn't see myself being creative enough to use it every day. I'm looking forward to your photos.
     
  18. :870:great first shot,

    and great eyes on #2
     
  19. Wow, you did PP those eyes didn't you. They are awesome!!!
