    I was sure suprised. did not think it would turn out at all.

    Guess carring the heavy stuff for 4 months,hepled alot, this felt like throw away camera.

    The 50 mm really suprised me alot.

    What promped me, is we have Mallard duck family at work and the 80-400 VR VR VR did not cut it. I had to get to close.

    My 24-120 VR VR VR won't be here for a bit. So had to go with what I have. Took the light weight tripod to work but did not use it. I was just practicing with the lens to see what I need to do.

    The pelican "Flew" by and I said what the heck, panned it and shot.
    Ducks to come shortly. She has 11 eggs in the nest. :))

    Thank you for your kind words.
  4. WOW, nice going Gale!! :) :)
  5. Ok Gale, your not supposed to shoot flying birds with a 50mm. Why else would we spend all that money on long lenses? :) :) :)
