      Thanks as always for your comment, feedback and sharing Mark, it's really appreciated.

      I had the Nikon 200-500 lens and was so disappointed with the images from it and what made it worse was the excellent images coming from other photogs on here, Dylan, Gadgetgaz getting unbelievable results from their copies of this lens.

      I traded it in for the Tamron 150-600 G2 as there were great deals on it at present, so far so good and happy at present.

      These images were hand held i.e.resting on the grass as best as possible to get to eye level, 600mm and f8 to give a little extra depth of field. The bird was approx 12metres and the image cropped from a 3x2 to 8x10 to reduce a little of the empty space.

      Thanks Mark, always a pleasure to reply :-)))

        Thanks so much Les for all the detail. It really is surprising the Nikor lens was a disappointment. That doesn't seem consistent with their reputation. I never had a telephoto lens until today. I just purchased Canon's latest 70-200mm f4 - I didn't want to deal with the extra weight and cost $$$ of the f2.8 - and I think f4 will suit me fine. Not sure yet what 200mm will get me yet but anxious to find out. Actually my Canon is not full frame so it is an effective 112 - 320mm. Again - I appreciate the information. It is helpful to me and your photo is awesome at 600mm.

          No problem at all Mark, more than happy to reply.

          Felt the same about the Nikkor 200-500 lens, especially as I traded in a Tamron 150-600 to get it, can only put it down to batch variation and my bad luck :-(

          I used Canon up until going back to Nikon and had the 70-200 F4L, absolutely superb lens and tbh the one I miss the most.

          Lightweight, super sharp, compact, wildlife, birds, landscapes, it did it all for me, no bad words against it at all, great purchase, you'll l love it....... and can't wait for the uploads :-)

            Thanks Les. Appreciate the info. I've often wondered about lens manufacturing and how consistent the quality may or may not be. The Canon 70-200 is a series II L lens they just released recently. It has better IS up to 5 stops and the lens is supposed to be improved as far as high contrast ghosting which is the complaint I had seen on the previous version. Thanks again - I appreciate the info so much
