Five beautifully sharp images... I am so glad that I didn't upload my Goldie offering as it would not stand up to any of these.

Great set of images Brian.
All well exposed showing the lovely colours with sharp detail.
Difficult to chose but #2 and 4 just have the edge, with better poses.

1 and 5 for me- love the blanced pose in v5 and the classic portrait in v1.
fantastic they are, all of them.
you mentioned a 300 2.8 Smile well I bought a Tamron 2 years ago for about 450 quid.. it is really good. So if you see one that is the solution without divorce.
