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

Discussion in 'Birds' started by bobbyv, Jan 13, 2018.

  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.
    NIKON D7200    ---    300mm    f/2.8    1/2000s    ISO 400

    2. Everyone else shoots this nest, 'thought I'd get a shot. 1.7tc attached. Viera.
    NIKON D7200    ---    500mm    f/8.0    1/3200s    ISO 640

    3. Nesting Flyer shot at f/8.
    NIKON D7200    ---    500mm    f/8.0    1/2500s    ISO 640

    4. Black Vulture Profile.
    NIKON D7200    ---    500mm    f/8.0    1/640s    ISO 640

    5. Warbler at 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.
  4. Great! Like the jay and vulture closeups.

    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
