Curlew with Sigma 400 manual focus

By brian1208
I'm in the throes of giving up with my sigma 400 f5.6 on the EM-5 (via eos : m4/3rds adapter) as its getting too heavy for me at 4lb+ but thought I would take it for a walk this morning, mainly shooting off the monopod.

We startled this Curlew up so I had a quick go a grabbing a shot looking through the EVF and twirling the nice big focus ring on the siggie.

It ain't that great but I was suprised to even get it in frame (what with the pod dangling off its nether regions and swinging in the breeze Grin )

Didn't see the Kingfishers though, which was the main reason for going (that + a lovely bacon & egg buttie at the Hiker on Hengistbury Head - Yum! )

My friend uses a sholder pod with his sigma, helps with the weight but still mesns its a walkabout lens, still a good capture in-flight. However sarnie sounds good to me. Grin

Very skillfully done and I will join you for a bacon buttie anytime.
I get to Coningsby airfield regularly and never mind the Lancaster and Spitfires, I secretly go for the bacon butties sold by the guy in the observation area.
