Well done Daniel. It is a brilliant lens and I am sure you will continue to enjoy using it. Yours looks very different to mine with the sight, camo cover and tripod mount. The first thing I did was remove the mount as I only use it handheld and wanted to save every ounce of weight I could. I also keep mine in a holster and the mount made it too tight to fit properly.

You have got some great wildlife on your Flickr pages: Nuthatch, Redstart, Crested Tit and Red Squirrel. I am very envious. :)

Thanks, Ron.
All in the feeder and in a tree right out side our window! ;-) Not allowed to drive until I get official permission from our eye doctor, so I have just been sticking around close to home learning how to use it. Brilliant piece of kit, to say the least!

Great bit of kit.
Curious to know more about the "gun-sight" arrangement.

+ the next two shots. I have since modified it a little for the 300/4. It is a great help for BiF as it makes it very easy to frame and follow the bird. The AF will either work or it won't, but I find it far better than using the view finder unless the bird is really slow.
