Was this hand held or on tripod without VR?

Tripod with full gimbal not strapped down VR on. Hand holding that beast is a fools errand.

Edited to add: I think the biggest advantage with the V1 and 600 is no mirror slap. At 1620mm I triggered this with my finger. Roughly the equivalent of the D7k with TC1.7, which I wouldn't even consider shooting without mirror up. So it returns a bit of spontenaity to the long shots.

I wasn't considering how big that 600mm lens is and I've never seen one except in photo's. Your right about the electronic shutter, I do pretty well with my 70-200 vr2 and the TC20e111 . I really like my V-1, its great fun. Thanks for your post.

While it bothers me to say so David, this looks a little soft compared to other examples I have seen at higher mm #s, not sure about the distance in those cases however, and perhaps the stability was a factor.

Since I commented on this image, I had my own experience with long lenses. I took my 200-400 zoom with a TC 20 on it and I was not pleased with the outcome. I found out later that I had not set the image quality and I was using medium-size JPG as a recording format. I have readjusted the stored image format, but have yet to test the system again. Hopefully I will be able to do so over the weekend (tomorrow).

Here's another one with the V1 and 600 f/4 VR. This was mounted on a tripod using teh RRS Gimbal head. The head was loose as the subject was moving.

Camera settings were
ISO 800
1/800 sec
f/4

This image was processed in Capture NX2. It was cropped to a width of about 1500 pixels and then resized to about 900 pixels for posting.

At ISO 800 colors are alittle muted and dynamic range is not very good, but for a full frame equivalent of 1600mm and a significant crop it is pretty good.
