p.1 #1 · Goodbye to my 500 L, Last Eagle Shot


Today I took my 500 out for a last shoot to give example for the Buy and Sell. Well it sold. I've got mixed feelings but am moving to the next generation.

Second picture is next generation. Big learning curve:

Rule number one: Remember birds lose altitude when they begin flight. Clipped again!

Always hard to say goodbye, but sure is fun to say hello!

Robert;
You're going to love the new MK II lens. I went from the 500 to the 600 II. I have been nothing but thrilled with the results.
Good luck with the new lens. BTW. great shots.

Great shots Bob! I'm jealous, but glad you were able to get over there! Wish I could've had time to meet you. Again... Great shots!

Ooooops new one needs to have 'wing clip' disabled

If Conrad can shoot that 600 Bob, you will be fine

Enjoy the new '6' shooter, one heck of a super tele to have!
