    Hi,

    So I picked up a 100-300 last week and just had to go and take the obligatory duck shots:

    I'm fairly happy with how this lens performs. The details in the feathers in these shots is great.

    I see that Great Minds Think Alike! :biggrin: I just got my 100-300 lens last week as well, and also headed out to the local duck pond.

    Nice shots! I wish I had the reach, light and clean water you had when I ran into a friendly duck this afternoon!

    We should start a duck thread - targeted at people taking test shots with their new tele lenses!

    Great shots! I didn't know the 100-300 was a dedicated duck lens - silly me, I took shots of dirt bikes and four-wheelers. Who knew?! :biggrin:

    Well, not a duck but somewhat related. Taken with the 100-300 and OM-D. I was pretty close so this was nearly at the 100mm end of the range.

    When 100-300 are gathered together, they shall take duck shots!
