Went to the zoo today to find out that I need a stronger monopod for the 250-600!

A couple of favourites, both at 600mm:-

I don't think those pink mono-pods will hold it still!

Hate to say it but they look a little soft to me.

Think you need a K-5 so you can bump the ISO and stop the lens down a bit more.

Well, it was windy, and the 2nd one is at only 1/400, so I think the K-5 will come in handy! This was experimental though and an excuse to just get out and use the lens.

Goes to show how important good support is, which is why I'm going Gitzo shopping in the morning!

Heres a 1:1 crop of the 2nd one:

I'm not sure if they are too soft, I think it's just the DOF is too small. In the 2nd one the beak and body seem to be OOF, but the 'chin' and the eye look pretty sharp. I like the composition in the first one.

Definately soft, looks like a dodgy lens, I'll take it off your hands cheap, it should come in handy for a doorstop
