Squirrel and  I will throw in your common crow( or raven??)  200-500  for half the cost of the new 300 and 1.4TC, maybe not as sharp but hey it will do. No denying the 300 is a darned sharp lens but so was the "older" 300.  Just cant justify the cost of this lens.

Nice stuff. I like #3.

Very nice, Paul. You need a baffle on the peanut stand. Stops the rodents from getting to your seed and peanuts.

Thanks guys, after seeing Art's images with the new 300mm I had a bit of lens envy. I used to have the previous version. Heavy yes, but soooo sharp.  They still sell them for about $1348 CDN. I love my 200-500 but sometimes my images are not crisp, plus I am getting older and the 200-500 is not exactly light ( arthritis in my fingers does not help)  . Even considering selling it and get the 300mm  Will I miss the extra zoom?? Probably

You will definitely miss the extra zoom.  You might want to re-think this.

 

I took the 300mm fresnel out today for a test run with birds.  I found a Heron to shot and the missing 100mm was huge!  Lite lens, no doubt about it, easy to walk, carry etc, but no reach!

 

Forget my backyard bird shots, they are staged nicely, due to how I have it set up.  In the field, this isn't enough.

 

Just me 2 cents.

Thanks Art for setting me  straight  :)  I have a bit of OCD when it comes to sharpness. I always compare my images with others and  have to convince myself the 200-500 is good enough. Depending on the distance even my old 70-300 was able get sharp images, distance not soo much.
