if you want to give serious close up a try on the cheap get a set of small camera bellows on a rack and a 6 element cheap enlarging lens bobs your uncle super sharp shots


it takes a bit of time to get the focus spot on but with digital you can tether to a laptop to help or use live view to help a bit

the vivitar lens is a a sweet one have alook at the 55mm vivitar fd thats cool too


GREAT SITE

Seriously - you'd be surprised.
I think you have just about summed up the difference between serious armature gear and pro equipment. If you have to get the shot you canít depend on everything working in your favour.

I use a bird forum as well and some of the shots posted there take your breath away - especially in-flight shots and low-light ones.

Mine is fine with plenty of light, but on a dull day.... not so much.
High ISO's are needed to keep up the shutter speed, which introduces more noise.
The lower f-stop lenses (wider diameter glass) let in more light which allows a lower ISO and so less noise.

"That is a chunk of money but bargain basement when you compare it with the 2.8 & f4 IS models. Are they that much better to warrant a £6479.00 & £5298.00 price tag?"

Yes in terms of image quality - they are streets ahead of mine but the problem is physical size.
I did quite a bit of research before buying and the one I have is pretty much the only one to use for carrying around and for in-flight shots. (That or the 100-400 zoom - both have their advantages and disadvantages)
Once you get to f4 and particularly f2.8 you're looking at tripod shots, you've no chance of swinging one of those around!
I like to walk around and take whatever opportunities present themselves rather than sitting in a hide for hours on end.

Bit like my fishing really

Keebs what lens did you use for the pictures of them birds. I love them and looking for a decent zoom lens to go with my first dlsr. I guess yours would be a bit out of my price range though
