I think I'm going to love this lens as much as I loved it's little brother, the SP90 ! ...it allws me to stay further away from the critters, BUT, the downside is that, due to it's longer focal length, I will have to use it a lot more on tripod, which I don't find very practical...

Cheers,

Thanks guys :smile: !

...the only "negative" thing I noticed its the VERY SLOW auto-focus... it takes a unusual long time to slide until it locks, and if by chance (!?!) it doesn't lock at first, it goes allll the way back and comes back to try to focus again :frown:... I guess I'm definitely going to use it strictly MANUAL !

...strange, as the SP90 is at least twice as fast -although being slow, as compared to an AF-S lens-, and I use it regularly in auto-focus ! I just hope it's not a malfunction on THIS lens !?!

:confused:

Thanks Mike, Glen, Rich and Maji :smile: !

I posted another thread with critters that I shot yesterday at https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=237885 ! I think the latest pics are nicer and sharper than the one above :biggrin:...

I ended shooting only with tripod, or BI-pod (!?!) sometimes, to make it easier to follow the critters moving in the light wind...

...just trying to get better.....

Cheers,
J-P.
