    A very nice selection here.

    No 16 is brilliantly timed - superb!:thumbsup:

    I think I prefer the ones with some grenery in the background, it adds a nice touch of colour contrast.

    hey Holo:hiya: thanks for the comment.Didnt realise Exif had been striped:(.

    Most werew taken at 170mm but some are at 398mm(might as well call it 400mm:D)

    Some are copped(but not heavily).

    the more i use this lense the more i like it:thumbsup:.I did take my monopod with me,but forgot the quick release shoe:thumbsdow.I think i would of got Much sharper shots with some support.

    Im of to my sons football match tommorow so am going to have a go at that(monopod included+Quick release shoe) just dont know what settings to use,was going to use sports mode,but i fancy having a go at Full manual:suicide:.Will post results anyway.
