|7 Horse Wins and Costs Me Money|
|Last Stretch Near Finish Line!|
This lens replaced my Tamron 200-500mm. I tried the new lens with and without a monopod. The lens is heavy, but not so heavy you can’t use it handheld. I tried to take most shots at at least 1/600th of a second if not somewhat faster. Overall, I was pleased with the results. I could have also tried using the Tamron 2x extender with this lens, but of course I’d lose two or more stops of light. The good news is I shoot with the Canon 5D Mark III and I shot at 400-800 ISO with pretty good results. Just a few years ago, there was no way a person could shoot with this lens without a tripod, but lenses and camera’s ISO sensitivity is vastly improved.
|Real or Plastic?|
One fellow at the race track told me about two owls… “do you like to photograph birds?” He asked.. so I looked through the lens and… they were fake plastic owls. But this guy kept at me that they were real and had moved. I think plastic owls move the more drinks a person has. Just a guess.
This will show the reach of the lens at 600mm. I never noticed the slight haze. This was hand held, too!
