A good image. The head just seems slightly less sharp than the body but the focal plane is similar. May be my tablet though. Should be sharp at 1/2000 although you are at maximum aperture and 500mm, thus 1000mm with your camera. I have this lens and try and use f8 as maximum aperture.

paulbroad: Thanks for the tip. For this (and most bird photos when the lighting is good) I prefer to shoot in the Shutter Priority and set it quite high as I was shooting handheld and did not want to get any camera shake. For such a high shutter speed the camera has taken the widest aperture available.

However, as you have mentioned it is always good to shoot with f/8.0 for this lens to get some good results. Will keep that in mind the next time when I am photographing birds in good light.
