  2. I can't get over how crisp that lens is. It must be a bazooka to tote around! Nice shots!!

    Phillip you have to stop posting these shots. I've been very happy with my 500mm but now you have me thinking about that 800. Excellent shots.
     
  4. WOw just stunning shots that lens in your hand is magic for sure. Keep them coming Philip

    WOW

    Super nice.
     
  6. WOW is right. Man you can make that camera and lens sing. Great job.
     
  7. Props to you on the shots, I dig the Greenies - I have yet to capture one that is worth discussing.

    Regardless, that 800 is a great lens and I'm glad you are showing everyone that Sigma quality is right up there with the big boys.

    Thanks for sharing, what support are you using?
     

  8. Hi I use a gitzo 1327mk2 carbon fibre with a full wimberley head.
