Super shot if I get anywhere near as good as this when I go next month I will be well pleased, did you find that the 70-200 was long enough or did you wish you had taken a longer lens with you?

Congrats on the EC well doneSmile

Hi Charlotte,
The 70-200 was good for pair of puffins like this (thats on a D300 so equivalent to 300mm), but for individual birds it was a bit short. I took my 1.7x tc, but its no always the best combination sharpness wise, although I did use it a few times. On Inner Farne you can get really close to shags & gullimots and the 70-200 was ideal for those. There will be more birds about when you go - we were there early May, so not so many around.

Thanks Martin I might put the 80-400 in the bag along with the D300 + the 70-200 and leave the D700 at homeSmile

Thanks again for your reply Smile
