    Two bird shots taken hand held with 500mm Tokina that I found at our local Goodwill.

    Pretty darn good for a hand held 500! Looks like a pretty good find too. ;)

    Nice shots. Is that a 500mm mirror lens? I got one from Jim and I'm terrible at hand holding it. Think I'm going to look into finding a cheap(ish) EVF, that would probably help. My hiking trip this past weekend in the sun proved it would work as a brace and help with the sun.

    Ya mirror lens. Tricky to get shots hand held, gonna take some practice to get good shots.

    My practice is going to come in the form of a $10 monopod that I picked up on friday. At least for now. :D

    Nah, hand holding that 500 is easy. Getting anything resembling a photograph while doing it is the hard part. :biggrin:

    I have a tripod that I never use. Might get it out with this lens.

    Very true.
