Well I have taken the plunge and bought myself a rather nice new lens. It has taken a bit of getting used to and after quite a few blurred shots I was quite happy with this. The dog is Max; he is getting on a bit and can only just amble around so he was ideal for me to practice on.
The harsh sun has resulted in a lack of detail in the fur but my brothr-in-law is delighted with the shot so that is the important thing.
Could perhaps clone out his tag?
Looking forward to your comments, and perhaps mods.

Its lovely, great dof and movement. I would personally leave the dog tag, It is his after all, gives extra personality............ not that he is lacking any you understandSmile

Many thanks guys, I am glad you like the shot.
Frank, you are correct in your assumptions: hand held on my knees. I wouldn't exactly say that I had mastered this lens as I had to endure far too many poor shots to get this. Can't wait to use it again though.

Lovely dog, looks a lot like my Ashley.

You could clone out the tag, it's not difficult, but it's also not necessary in my opinion.

Nice sharp lens, lovely bokeh, and leave it as is.

Dont quite understand why you would have problems using the lens, - it it bigger, heavier, - is that it? Otherwise theres nothing else to know!

Various reasons Willie:
Size and weight as you say
Trying to capture fast moving dogs (not Max)
Using the lens wide open on the wrong subjects
I just need a bit more practice with it to know what works.
