    Very nice. I am looking at this for birding with my L10. Pity there will be no IS but I have to use a tripod for birding anyway. Nice color and sharp as well. Love the bokeh as well. How far away were this taken?

    Thank you Nic. These were taken between 55-60 feet away, from my bedroom window

    Thanks Helen, appreciate th compliments
    I could not fit the lens on the laptop at full zoom!
    Using the lens on my e410, one holds the lens mainly, however it looks its an excellent lens and viewpoint

    Not a lens, but a weapon

    Well one does have to hold the combo kind of like a rifle
    That being said, I bought the lens for its reach and Image quality, not its style

    Hello Lili, nice photographs although I prefer the backround in the second one to the last one. Do you have any pictures with this lens with a lot of DOF? I was thinking about this lens for viewshots in Normandy. The lens has a price to buy sort of in between while the 50-200, I am also thinking about, costs more serious money. Takes a longer consideration to justify
    If you have an example, I am very interested.

    Thanks Michael. As to your inquiry, do you mean you'd like to see a shot at small aperture? To sharpen up the background? I do not, yet have one though the lens is going with me today and I will try to take one and have it up tonight
    As to the 50-200, would be very nice but the cash outlay is considerable
