  1. Hi Bob, my name is Sheila and I met you at South Llano State Park a couple or so weeks ago. I asked you what lens you were using (you were getting out of your car). You and your friend told me about the Tamron 600mm lens and gave me your card.

    Do you have any photos on your site taken with this Tamron lens?

    Thanks so much for a reply. Happy Birding

  2. Hi Bob . . . I would like to discuss equipment with you a little more in depth and get your opinions if you wouldn’t mind giving me a moment of your precious time, Thanks

    • Hi Carla. My favorite book is the Stokes Field Guide to the Birds of North America. Written by Donald and Lilian Stokes I think it is one of most thorough there is. It also includes a CD with more than 600 bird sounds.

  3. Mr. Bob, I was wondering how the Canon SX 40 works-out in the field? Have you had it very long, are there any issues you’re dealing with after trying it out?
    I have been wanting something smaller, I have the 5D & 5DIII, but with the 400mm f2.8 and the tripod I’m lugging almost 20 extra pounds around.

    I have been looking at alot of different smaller cameras, but nothing has really jumped out at me.

    I see where B&HPhoto has the SX40 for $379.00, is that a good price or do you know of someplace better.

    • I really haven’t used it that much. But as you can see from my photo of the hawk, it is pretty darned sharp. The viewfinder is a bit tiny in my point of view and takes getting used to. That B&H price is about right. You might save a couple of bucks at Amazon, though.

    • Yeah, I love the 7D. I thought the 40D was the cat’s meow until I got the 7D. What a surprise! Great color rendition, 18MP for great enlargements, etc. The 7D has it all. 🙂
