O hai hai
Hi Leong, thats a beautiful image. Was that a 300/2.8 that you used or a 400? hope you dont mind me ask.
I dunno what he was shooting, but I thought he was really serious into photography.
If one can go to F1, I think the 300 F4 would be good enough from the grandstand.
Having a long lens means need more skill to target the subject and handle/moving around.
But the hunger for longer lens is so attractive: reach, isolation of background, more eye-level shots and sharpness.
But, i will stick with my 300mmf/4 for a couple more years for casual shooting and focus on my macro-photography.
Yes, long lenses is not easy to handle. i shot with 85 1.2 for weddings. it was really difficult to handle given the tight framing and stability. I scaled down to 50 1.2 as a result.
Above all, i still love my contax. I have a spare zeiss 60 2.8 (Japan made). you want to try?
very long never sleep till 10 then wake up liao...
