Re: Mixed bag of birdies

Excellent! The Bigma can't be so bad after all. I need one!
I like the detail of the Robin, but the Coal Tit is something I can't get a good picture of myself. She's a little scarce over here (as is the Bigma). Well done!

Re: Mixed bag of birdies

These are simply stunning, Danny. And shot with a x10 zoom ... I would not have expected results like these from a lens with such a wide range.

Re: Mixed bag of birdies

Thanks everyone for the very kind comments, always appreciated. To echo some comments about the Bigma : I too found this lens real hard work when I bought it. It hunted for focus, shots were soft wide open, needed lots of light etc etc.

But if you perservere with it, it can give pretty decent results, and can stay sharp if you play with the settings. A tripod is a must though, for me anyway - i tried a monopod on this beast and it works, but my results were better with the tripod.

Re: Mixed bag of birdies

A very nice series, well captured. I like the Coal Tit most.
My Bigma is the lens that is most often on my E-600, followed by the 70-300 and I wouldn't be without either. I almost allways shoot handheld, but it does make you arms ache.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Mixed bag of birdies

A lovely set of pictures.

I like the second Blue Tit and the Great Tit best, because they show some of the inquisitive nature of these birds.
