Burleigh Heads Surf

Postby 4xxxx » Fri Jan 30, 2015 3:18 am

From yesterday, I didn't expect any surf when I went to Burleigh Heads, good to have the camera in the car just in case although only the 200 mm lens. Looks like a girl day from where I was, The guys were to far away for the 200 mm.

Nice shots. And doubly welcome for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere who are in the depth of winter!

We've been spoilt by the results from your 400mm but these show that your older lens still hacks it. Have you been tempted by the new 300mm prime, a fraction of the 80-400 weight?

Primes are nice to have but for me I not only want IQ but length. At times the 400 is not long enough and I can shoot f8 @ 1/1000 most days, I've been thinking of getting an extender. The weight of the 300 prime looks good but I’m over the 80-400 weight and use a Tripod. With the 400 I can go to surf beaches where the 200 was far to short. I’ve never considered the 18-200 to be old and love the IQ of it as a walk about lens. The shots above are around a 50-60 % crop.
