    Nice weather finally to play with the new long lens. These gulls were circling the house this afternoon and I shot them @ 200mm, handheld.

    These are approximately 50% of the original frame.

    Wow thoes are some great photos! They just have a certain feeling to them. I like how part of a cloud is in the second one.

    Talk about clear photos and at 200mm! What shutter speed and aperture did you use?

    Does that mean that with the digital multiplication factor it's really a 300mm (or thereabouts)?
    Either way they're very crisp shots and handheld to boot!
    The only way I'd get a handheld shot like that is when rigor mortis sets in.

    First a collective thank you to all.

    Harpper- f/8.0 on both, 1/1000 on the first, 1/1500 on the second.

    Sid- yep, that'd be a 300 equiv., but it seems to be really easy to hold. Time will tell.
