Canon 75-300 IS - Photography

Take what the naysayers post about this lens with a grain of salt. Most of them have never owned it, which is obvious from their comments. This shot was taken in the Florida Everglades under cloudy conditions and from a crowded tram ride that was bumping and ing and stopping and starting. In other words, a poor environment for photographs. Nevertheless, the lens performed very well: http://home.comcast.net/~charlesschuler/wsb/media/291308/site1056.jpg...

    Not bad at all. Detail in whites is a bit gone.

    What focal length were you at?

    Can you post a full size?

    Cheers,

    Thanks. Those birds are snow white and there isn't much detail. Looks the
    same to the eye.

    When I edit my website (Comcast is stingy with their memory allocations; so
    I'll have dump some shots).

    Given the exposure range of the photograph, I think he did a pretty good
    job balancing it.

    I was ed the other day for not having my camera with me. Snow, high
    winds and who's fishing in the pond? A Great Blue Heron. Would have
    made an interesting, if not spectacular, shot.

    Same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I was walking along
    the Bronx River, just outside the Bronx Zoo, on my lunch break, and
    there was a Great Blue fishing from the ice in a marshy area just below
    a lookout, for mummichogs or banded killies. Came back with my camera a
    couple of days later, and no herons to be found.

    Last summer I saw a Great Egret "spear" a rat with his bill; again, no
    camera. A brilliant male Ringnecked Pheasant on top of someone's
    mailbox; no camera.

    That's why I have the A95 now - so I'll at least have SOMETHING with me.

    But little point and shoots aren't too good at capturing birds unless
    they're very, very tame or very, very dead.

    I got burned again yesterday, for not having a camera. I went to the
    Zoo again, and went to The World of Birds. The display of local birds
    had a nuthatch on a tree right next to the edge of the opening to the
    display. It hopped around the back, so I snuck up and stuck my head in,
    thinking that whenever it came around the tree and saw me, it would
    become startled and fly into the display. When it re-appeared, it did
    not fly, and I made a clucking noise with my tongue and the back of my
    teeth, and it came right up in my face, about 5 inches away, pointing
    its little beak up at me and looking straight into my eyes. I could
    only think of the close-ups I could have had. Most of my nuthatch
    pictures are from a telephoto persective; none close-up with a wider
    lens. I could have held a P&S at arm's length and got us both in the
    picture, face-to-face.
