"Happy with the 70-300" Tue 16-Oct-12 05:15 AM by KnightPhoto
I bought a 70-300 this spring for use as a travel lens on my big honking FX cameras but due to a series of circumstances didn't use it.
Then I did some bear photography and my results were poor (on a D7000) but light was low and shutter speeds insufficient.
Yesterday I glommed the lens onto V1/FT-1, stopped it down to f8, shot in manual exposure at ISO 800 and I was actually pretty pleased given what a light overall package it provided for an 810mm FOV. AF hunted a little too often but was accurate once it did focus:
