Pretty good shot given that you are getting to grips with the new lens, Alun: nicely composed within the frame.

240 -600 seems to work very well. must be a heavy beat, but in good hands like yours the rewards are guaranteed!

Thanks all. Annette, it's the 120-300F2.8 but with a 2x teleconverter. The lens is heavy at nearly 7lbs so no need to go to the gym for a workout. I'll be interested to see it's performance with a 1.4TC at F4 and 420mm. Things should be a lot easier. DOF at 600mm was wafer thin. The shots sharpened up nicely buth there's only so much you can ask of a 2xTC on a zoom!

Great birds....we use the 300 ex dg hsm prime 2.8, which works very well with 2x tc - works much better with 1.4.... As you say heavy Smile
