How'd you get such close pictures csmonte? I noticed that you only have 135mm of zoom (according to your sig).


Well that made me grin a bit, I like that people noticed. I had the pleasure to shoot with the 300 2.8 IS that weekend. I rented it for the weekend mainly for an airshow, but I tried as hard as I could to fill my hole weekend with photo related things. At the show I used a 1.4 teleconverter, but it was to long at the zoo so these were all at 300.

serenity ~ That is a great capture you got there, its eyes are so large it almost looks fake. Yes I also have the 1600 ISO problem, its grainy and get an OK shot or lower it and risk getting no shot. Indoor is soo hard.

thanks again for the comments, I was really excited about the lens, didn't really get to learn it completely but it was an incredible piece of equipment.
I will be posting in the lens section and action (airshow) when I organize some more pictures.

Yeah - I'm used to seeing them with tiny pupils too (outdoors)

Seems like you really enjoyed that 300mm lens. Next purchase perhaps?

oh would I love to own it, it was hard giving it back. I would consider it, but it just seems irresponsible unless I were to make more money in photography. I was actually looking to rent the 100-400 IS, but this was the longest lens they had. I used the 1.4 tele in different shotsnot at the zoo, and it was still amazing sharp. I could see going for a 100-400 in the nearish future.

Wow...nice thread! Hadn't seen this one before - glad you brought it back around Popo. I unfortunately don't get too many places or opportunities to see big cats, though I do love them.

Here's my mixed bag, some from P&S, and some from DSLR, mostly tigers as those are the ones I have the best access to.

Some Sony DSC-H5 ultrazoom attempts, at Disney's Animal Kingdom:

And some DSLR shots with an 18-250mm lens - some are Sony A300 and some are Sony A550:

Again from moving trucks!

I purposely used slower shutter speeds to see if I could get a little motion blur as this guy looked about to run:

Oh, boy...
The one with a :shock: face is precious.
Really, if I were you, I wouldn't even share that photograph.
I'm kind of selfish, you see.

We took a trip to a park that well wasn't quite open yet as it was advertised.
We didn't know :roll:
Dropped our money in a box and headed in then wondered why no-one else was around...had the place to ourselves :D
