The "New" 300 2.8 VR Does Brevard County, FL

  1. One reason I got this lens is to shoot Florida Scrub Jays. They photograph well on overcast days with a smart lens. Ended up shooting some other birds too.

    1. Scrubby on the trail. Testing the lens at 2.8 for sharpness.

    2. Everyone else shoots this nest, 'thought I'd get a shot. 1.7tc attached. Viera.

  2. Bobby, the clarity and overall IQ in these shots are amazing. You're smoking with that 300/2.8, super job.
     
  3. I bet Randy misses his best glass! Awesome shooting Bobby, every one a winner.

    You’re a mean old man:)
    The D850 + 300pf at f/4 is pretty close to the 300vr at 2.8 on DX and I can hold it

    It’s taken 6 months but I’m finally retooled for the 2018 season. D5 + 500e and the D850 + 300pf
