    Well I picked up my Tamron 200-400 mm lens, I think its something like 630mm for the digi, not to sure on that though...
    First off.....

    YAMA MAMA! this thing is huge. :shock:

    I just did some test shots from standing out on my porch, and Im pretty happy with the results. It was raining a little, and horrible overcast so the lighting was the craps, but here's what came of it.

    About a 100 feet away.

    Little more then a 100 feet away, kept the original width just cropped down the top and bottom.

    about 300 feet away.
    Look at her eyes!! I think I made them like that in ps by accident, I was in a hurry, heh.

    Oh and incase anyone is wondering I bought the lens primarily for Wildlife, with the ocasional horse event / hockey / soccer / baseball game / etc.

    My daughter's immediate question is: "How is he ever going to HOLD it?"

    The results are awesome!
    I envy you that telephoto lense!!! I wish I could ever get as close to whatever wildlife I get to see as you can.

    hehe thanks la foto. All these shots were taken handheld, but I couldn't take too many without taking a break, my arm would cramp :? . So from now on its the tripod.



    Should I invest into a monopod..? atleast I think they are called that.... :?

    My dad borrowed a monopod from a friend.
    And i dont know much, but my advice is no dont, not for that lens, it wont keep straight,
    I suggest you go full blown tripod, here ill give you a link to some good ones.

    Click here for a good priced tripod.

    Here for a list of jessops brand tripods.

    And here if you want to submit the search yourself if i didnt find something you like :)

    Edit: I have a alfa 3 by Jessops and i swear by it, brilliant lille thing with all those added functions like quick snap off, and alter it for portraits.

    heh, I just realized I never even said what lens it was... :oops:

    Tamron 200-400mm, F/5.6 and that's it, so it's a solid aperature, don't know if thats the right way of wording it or not...

    Thanks for the info Artemis! I think I'll look into both, I already have a tripod but its such a small weak plastic one I don't know if I would trust it. :wink:

    here's another one I just took like 30 mins ago..

    I am not too current on my deer anatomy but is there something wrong with that deer's right hind leg? Looks like something usually inside is outside....
