    Taken this AM with the FZ150 at Peebles Island, NY.

    I love my superzoom!

    That's a great shot - and a very precarious spot to stand! The heron must've been quite sure of its own capabilities to land there...

    And that's more of a "zoom with your fins" scenario, lol.

    The detail on our fine feathered friend isn't bad at all for 799mm! Nice work.

    BTW, that was shot at 1/200s, f5.2, ISO 100, handheld. Apparently the image stabilization works!

  6. LOL, great shots, and no, no foot zooming possible there :)

    If you aren't getting your feet wet, then you're not close enough!

    Never really put too much stock into zooming with your feet argument - wonder how far you have to back up to get a fish-eye view?:rolleyes:

    Nice picture and a good example of what superzooms are all about!
  8. That zoomed in image is really very good!!
  9. I think I want another superzoom. Dammit Jock!!
