Hullo all, just an update on my telephoto lens investigation.
Some keen readers may recall I was asking for views on this lens compared to my Sigma 150-500 OS.
Well, not knocking the Sigma......it's great for the price......the Nikkor is just amazing.
Never have I shot such clear pics...of birds, trees, or whatever!

I always try to get down to Bells Beach...about 20 minutes from Ocean Grove...and catch the action in the Rip Curl Pro over Easter.

Last year and the one before, I took the Sigma.......the shots were good, but not great.
I have tested the new lens here on the surf beach and am thrilled with the results....reach may be a touch less, but the clarity and sharpness of the prime lens has amazed me!

I will be down to see Kelly Slater and our Aussie lads over Easter...wish me luck...not with the lens...but the weather!

Oh, by the way I am waiting for the Nikkor 1.4 TC, should arrive prior to Good Friday!
