I received my 2nd AF-S 300 f4 today (this time new with Warranty). And this one seems to live up to the its reputation :biggrin:

(The first one was second hand from eBay and had severe focus and softness problems :frown: Fortunately the seller took it back)

These are the first test-shots from today:

Very nice shots....I think I need a D200...these shots are just so much better than my D50 ones...of course I would keep the D50 for my wife. :biggrin:

Flowers where handheld, for the birds I used a monopod, 1.4xTC + SB800 for fill (strength was fading :Crunk:)
Nice pic of Sterling. We don't see it here. (Others correct me if I am wrong).

May be next year, I will get a 300 prime and Better Beamer :biggrin:

It's a starling. We have them in Illinois - many of them. They turn the iridescent color you see in the excellent shot above at this time of year.

Excellent work. I'm considering a beamer myself - would love to hear others' opinions of this device.
