    Swans with new lens :)

    I have just acquired a new lens and of course wanted to try it out. So, sulky iggie by my side (it was cold), I went to a local lake that has plenty of birds. I found a family of swans standing on the lawns - Mum, Dad and their cygnets. My, these birds are large and tall! Unfortunately they were in shadow, not ideal, and I wasn't about to ask them to move

    For a first go with this lens and considering the lighting I'm not displeased with these. The bokeh on the second is a bit yucky, probably my fault, I didn't think too hard on my settings. However, they required minimal sharpening, which is good for the V1. The lens is the new 1 Nikkor 70-300mm CX mount. This means I get 300mm with full auto focus and tracking capability in a light weight piece of kit. So I'm hopeful that this poor photographer will get some good BIF images - well, anything in flight actually lol, cheers Deb

    Pity to waste them in NFC, Mathy. At least shift them to gear talk?? No?

    More relevant if you don't want critique on the pics.

    Will shift...

    Moved to Product Review - Lenses, as this is a report on its performance.
