Indigo-banded Kingfisher (Alcedo cyanopectus) by alabang, on Flickr

The Indigo-banded Kingfisher (Alcedo cyanopectus) is a species of bird in the Alcedinidae family. It is endemic to the Philippines, where it is a generally uncommon but locally common resident of the northern and central islands. There are two subspecies, the nominate race, which occurs on Luzon, Polillo, Mindoro, Sibuyan and Ticao, and A. c. nigriostris, which is found in Panay, Negros and Cebu. It forms a superspecies with the Silvery Kingfisher of the southern Philippines.[1]
The Indigo-banded Kingfisher feeds on fish and aquatic insects. It perches on rocks and overhanging branches and foliage and dives steeply into the water to catch its prey. Once caught, it returns the prey to the perch where it is beaten and swallowed. Little is known about its breeding behaviour, although it is known to nest in tunnels dug into the banks of streams and rivers.[1]
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests.

With the new firmware I do not expect it to be replaced until 1-2 years from today.

The car was parked perfectly and the parking lot was so out of place in terms of quality of workmanship.

You have also posted it in the 800mm f/5.6 thread. I'll ask the same question here: Is that a 100% crop or is it a larger size that has been reduced? If reduced, what is the size of the original crop?

I'd like to get a feel for the quality of the 800mm and you need the file size info for that. Thanks.

I will provide excuses. ;)

Above settings: 1/30 ƒ/6.3 ISO1600 800mm


The 9.5MP crop is from the original 16MP that was shrunk to 1024px on the longest side.

I have been shooting infrequently once every other month. For many of the shots I was shooting in a prone positing in the dirt inside a very unkempt horses' stable. I was shooting without turning off the mirror lock and without a remote trigger.

Below is a slightly better image once I got my "birding legs" back. 5.0MP crop is from the original 16MP that was also shrunk to 1024px. These were taken 14 mins apart.

As to 800 vs 600 II, my opinion based on experience is if it is a 800 at a generous secondary market price then go for it but for brand new go with a 600 II with a 1.4x III extender.
