So what does 500mm look like?

Two poor images with the Bigma.

First at 50mm (Handheld so not that sharp)

Is #2 the competition across the street, Craig?

LOL, Yep. We've been there 14 years, they opened 2 years ago. We outsell them 2:1 most months. That sign is about 300 yards away.

As you can see, we can see the competition even on a rainy day Big Grin

You'll have a lot of fun with the Bigma. Big Grin

I have the 170-500, which is as large and heavy as I can manage. Here's a couple of recent shots from it. the Black headed Gull was shot at 170mm and the Redpoll was at 500mm. I was using a Manfrotto 222 grip action ball head for the Gull shot. I'm not steady enough on my feet to handhold the lens for birds in flight.

and the Redpoll at 500mm (also with tripod-mounted lens)
