Here's a BIF shot to demonstrate that the lens tracking AF works just fine.

Great shots, Steve. Lucky you, finding an affordable copy. Even luckier - you can lug the thing around!   :)
You have a good eye for the birds.

Very cool.  Thanks of rthe review. 

This lens intrigues me because I shoot surfing and the range is about perfect.  At the last surf contest there was a guy with one and I asked to try it for a minute or two, offering to let him try my 400f2.8 IS and both VIII converters, but he acted like we would catch kooties from trying lenses like that... 

I see these on eBay from time to time, but way too much money and of course you can't try it out first...

How about a Sigmonster on birds rolling for takeoff?   ;D ;D ;D

Yes, the processing could be much better, but I was in a hurry.   :(
- It's the brain behind the eye behind the eyepiece that counts.
- The sharpest lens I own is a tripod.
- Equipment sitting there on the table, while amazing by any and all human measures, can't produce a brilliant piece of work without serious human intervention.

You have the potential to be a superb bird/wildlife photographer.
