It was delivered about 7 p.m. By the time I got in unpacked and on my camera, the birds that hang out in our yard had gone to roost. Next best thing was to aim the lens at one of our African Grey parrots, Bogie. This was shot at 135 focal length, f5, 1/60 with flash. ISO 640. Hand held.

No sharpening was applied. Shot in RAW and converted to jpeg. Thoughts about the lens so far. It is heavier than my old 80-400, and being female with weak hands and wrists, I wouldn't want to hand hold it very long. I will try it on my monopod tomorrow if the rain holds off.

Oh, yeah, I am very pleased with it so far. Love, love the quick focus.
