After buying my new Nikon 70-300mm f4-5.6G lens tomorrow, I decided to go bird park to give it a try :) .

As I am relatively new to this, can anyone share any tips?

And would the Sunny 16 rule (f16, 200ISO, 1/200) work well? :embrass: Provided its sunny lah... I am aimin to shoot like at f10-f11 like this because this lens got softness issue :confused: .. (I hate it)

Issit possible? Or issit better to shoot at f5.6? :dunno:

IMHO, 300mm is still too short for Birding. At bird park would still be ok but not in the wild. Serious Birder uses 500mm and above.

Bird park wise, f8 to f11 would suffice... and you probably will do well with extra support like a tripod or a monopod...
