Lovely shot, I like the reflection, it amazes me they dont loose there legs landing on weak ice.
How long have you had the lens, how do you like it?
I have just about mastered mine enough to get photos worthy of this site.

Hi David

Thanks for the kind words. I purchased the 150-500 last August, when SRS had them on offer for 599. I haven't really experimented with any of the buttons, other than the occasional need to flick between AF and manual focus. For the money, I think it provides a decent cocktail of versatility and image quality - and others have obtained far better results than mine from the same lens.

The main downside? It isn't always easy to sneak it onto EasyJet flights as hand luggage, but I usually manage to conceal it beneath a jacket...
