    Don't be silly. I think the only reason is that. I need to pick up my camera and shoot everyday. That means I have more time to practice.
    Anyway, we are all even here! Coz we are willing to shoot and willing to share.
    Just couldn't be happier!

    common kingfisher

    i am not a birder drifit. but i've read some posts from other discussion groups since last year. and discovered a kind of bird which i think is the most beautiful so far. that's the common kingfisher!
    i've been searching for it for quite some time! but never get a chance to see it in the urban area! luckly, i saw it during my trip in japan few weeks ago! not just that! i saw it flying and diving for fish! unfortunately, that's no way i could do to capture that action. coz i was using my 500mm f/8 mirror lens and shooting at 1/60 sec..............

    how about D3s + 300mm f/2.8 + TC2x?
    two focal range in one shot. 300 or 600. or even + TC1.4x, can get 420mm.
    500mm f/4 + TC1.7x & TC1.4. for birder, manual focus is okay.

    500mm f4 + 1.4X teleconverter are the standard weapon for birding.
    you know, i wouldn't mind using mf lenses again. i had used them for years. nikon ais 300 f2.8, 400mm f3.5 and 500mm f4 p.
