what does a PL mount do?
Thanks! And I think many here in this thread may have foregone computer gear That lens is popular and I suspect many are holding onto theirs. You might have better luck just selling your case.

Some nests have moms incubating. A few yearling males still trying to figure it all out (i.e. #1).
Nice shots, I see these things all the time on KY River and other water bodies. I need to get the boat out myself. How skittish are they? I've never tried to get close to one, and 200mm is the farthest I can reach, on FF no less.

But GT, it's a 21mp FF. You can crop 'till the cows come home!!

Seriously, if you can catch them in their nest, they're usually not real timid and they fly pretty slow so good practice for BIF's. It's also a blessing for my setup since the angle of view is so small, it's hard to frame them sometimes.

Ha ha, yeah, then why do have a 400mm lens?

It kind of sucks not having the crop factor anymore, but it's worth the trade because 21MP is awesome for cropping. 100% crops even look really good, but not as good as bird that fills the frame to begin with!

This shot is nearly a 100% crop, it looks ok I suppose, about 15 feet away:

Downy Woodpecker



This one is about a 30% crop, five feet away or so (bird blind):

Nuthatch



Red Crowned Field Sparrow



As you can see, it wasn't an all-star cast at the bird blind today, mostly grackles, sparrows, doves, the odd blue jay. I need to get out to the Cincy Zoo, they have the most amazing walk-in parrot cage.

Easy. The GBH's I'm shooting are on an island away from humans, hence the reach. But the birds that do nest along shore allow you to approach directly under their nest which is usually ~ 30 feet in the air.

SELLING MY FILM GEAR Y'ALL!

I don't remember who was in the market for an F5... but I've got one, and I want it to go.

The Super Program and my 35SPn (which is in repair right now) will be enough for film. I really want to go back to digital.

Do you guys reckon a 55mm 1.2 or a 300mm 4.5 + 2x TC would be beneficial to me more? Both are AI spec lenses (manual everything, including manual aperture ring). The 55mm 1.2 is a bit less then half the price of the tele ($250) but I reckon I can bring him down at least a good $50 because the lens is in a pretty poor state. The 55mm would be amazing for low light but the 600mm would be useful, although such a telephoto would be a very specialist lens. I do like birding whenever I get the chance on whatever flying winged creature I find although currently the limiting factor for me would the D60.

I think the 2x TC may work on my 55mm 3.5 Macro which would give me 1:1 macro capabilities as well.

I currently have a 55mm 3.5 Macro, 18-55mm, 35mm 1.8, 70-300mm VR. I don't know where the thing in my sig went D:

An interesting find here :

http://www.zacuto.com/shootout


Make sure you click on episode 1 first and then on episode 2. On the main page, episode 2 comes by default so you will have to look lower for episode 1.

I think you've answered your own questions here. Birding would be difficult with out manual focus. You would essentially need to pre-focus for a certain spot, because birds NEVER sit still for than a second it seems. And with your 2xTC, I'm not sure if the lens will even meter on your D60.

And if the 55/1.2 is in such a poor state, why buy it? If it's a local buy, then I would see it in person at least before considering it.
