Just recieved my new lens today and just had to try it out, this juv goldfinch was more than pleased to pose this is at 11m hand held from the conservatory door, cant see me hand holding it for long as it is quite heavy perhaps i should join the gym but to be honest i dont like it !!!!!! i love it its fantastic and a dream come true for me. Very pleased with the c/c on my last upload it really is appreciated.

All you have to do now then is get the plastic in the lens replaced with some glass and you'll have the real thing Smile Smile
