I had my eye on either the Tamron or the Sigma 150-600, but then Nikon came out with the 200-500. So somewhat less distance but apparently it was supposed to be dead sharp even wide open. Well, check for yourselves, but I am happy with the new glass. Actually affordable ...

By the way, the watermark on the images is a scan of my dad's logo, when he had the photo-studio/shop in Germany.... I am proud to continue in his footsteps.

500mm @ ISO640, f5.6, 1/1000 tripod

Forgot to put this one with the images ...

ISO 200, 500mm, f5.6, 1/200 handheld ... that VR is superb!

Fun new toy. Congratulations. It certainly appears to be sharp

Congrats! All of the shots are nice, but that last one is super. Almost looks 3D with the creamy bokeh.

Love that raven!

Yeah, I think your dad would be proud. :)

VERY nice, and VERY sharp also. Def a keeper. Love the detail in the rope and the windings on it.

That is some sharp lens. Congrats on the new addition.
