p.1 #1 · Prime Hook Ospreys.


Took the new 600 MKII to Prime Hook on Saturday. I was staying in Rehoboth Beach which was a short drive. Saw ospreys, Eagles, Harriers, etc etc. The Ospreys presented the best opportunity to test the lens.
All shots were hand-held with a 1.4 MKIII. I left my tripod in the car because I wanted to see if I could hand-hold it as well as I did with my 500.
It actually felt a little lighter because of the weight distribution. It is a little bulkier than the 500.
I got used to the 3rd mode IS pretty quickly, especially since I use back button focus. Keeping my finger on the shutter to activate the IS was no problem.
All in all I am very happy with the new lens.

Prime lens at the Prime Hook. A couple of nice images. I like the wind-induced doo.

Thanks Ken.
Kinda looks like some rare exotic species.
Something about Ospreys that makes them so photogenic.

Thanks Ron.
Handling was very similar to the 500. I think that's the point with the 600. Everything I've read about increased iq with the 1.4 III ext and improved performance seems to be true.

Those are great, Al! I was waiting for when I'd see a "new 600" post from you!

Wonderful shots. Handheld! If I wouldn't have seen you doing that, I would think it's nearly impossible with such lens.

Those are quite nice! Oh how I envy Canon superteles. Wish I had the talent to justify such a luxury, but alas I'm but a mere mortal. Well done sir!

Ralf;
Good to see you show up here at FM !
Yes, you were there for the actual first trial with the 600 II. It really isn't that hard to handhold. The trick is: First: have Popeye forearms. Second: you have to do it in spurts.

Now start posting some of your pictures.

Sebastian.
It doesn't take that much talent, but it does take a little money.
Thanks for the compliment.
