Thanks Iain,

I have never tried the 300mm by itself, I will certainly give it a go. The lens is heavy, and may be why the focus point is slightly unpredictable. I am nearly 71 years young, and my arms and hands are not so steady as they used to be alas....

The cropped photo stands out......

I am one year behind you and know only too well about unsteady hands

I purposely use higher ISO to get the fastest possible shutter speed to give the image stabilisation a chance
