    Wife gave me an early 50th anniversary gift the other day. Early mainly because we hope to take off in a few weeks to let me photograph the Natchez Trace Parkway during the Fall colors, and she wanted me to have this lens in case I saw some good wildlife opportunities.

    Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6

    Some "testing" results.

    Normal human vision, roughly 50mm.

    Only the shot of the Mallard was a planned shot. All the others were "quick snaps" to get the image without a lot of time spent composing and focusing. I think I'm going to like this lens, even if it is heavy as all get out.

    Thanks. The anniversary is actually in December. December 25 to be exact. (I tell people that I chose that day so that I could buy one gift and two cards, but in reality, I was returning from service overseas in 1968 and Christmas was the best day for all the family to be able to attend.)
