Went out to test out the new Sigma 150-600 C today. It was pouring all day, so there wasn't much going on and I was forced to shoot at ISO 5000.

This was the only "useable" shot from the day. Impressed with the lens sharpness.

Cool image. The 150-600C was a very sharp lens IMO when I owned it.

Thanks, I kind of liked how it looked like a motley crew lineup against the white.

The tricky part so far has been getting enough light to stop down and shoot at a faster shutter while dropping the ISO a bit (and finding/getting close enough to the wildlife)

Nice composition, starlings are such characters and you've captured that well.

Thanks for the comments.

I used to really enjoy taking wildlife photos. I discovered an old hard drive filled with images taken with my 20D and the Sigma 170-500 5.6-6.3. At the time I thought the setup was decent, but looking back the images are all so grainy and soft. Anything iso 800 or above on the 20D was basically useless. Now, I'm shooting at ISO 5000 with an image I could probably print (plus, a lens hardly more expensive than the 170-500, but seems 5x as sharp)... Amazing how technology improves!
