    For the money this lens can't be beat,sure wish I would have picked it up sooner than later.I think it is a pretty good copy even coming from someone who hasn't been at this for a long time:biggrin:

    After busting my equipment at MI4 I shot with Andreas's 300 f4 for several days. I was so impressed that I bought one when I got back. As I recall, you were shooting with the 70-200VR. Nice going from 280mm to 420, huh? :smile:
  6. You are right Tim, That is a GREAT set up.

    Nice work Tim. How about trying that lens out on your heron rookery? Better yet, how about an invite to come up and shoot that rookery with you?

    Yes thats is correct Frank,I was shooting the 70-200 with the 1.7 now I got the 300 and the 1.4.Haven't tried the 300 with 1.7 yet,and you are so right about 300 f/4 for the money very nice.

    Thanks again Dave,it is a nice piece equipment for not a ton of $$$ :biggrin::biggrin:
