Many thanks for the c and c on my last upload.
I got a spare 5 minutes today to try out the new lens again, again hand held.
He/she was enjoying the sun on a TV aerial.
Had a bit of a fiddle with the original which is shown in version 2.

Definitely more charming in full colour. V2 does suit our current dark weather though. TG

I prefer mono version.
Think there's evidence of some noise but not so noticeable in mono.
The image is very sharp - must be a great lens and photographer!
Amazing for hand held.

An excellent capture, David, starlings have such wonderful irridescence in their plumage, which shows so much better in V.2. Carol
