.....From my photo experience-I'd say that is no more than a 500mm telephoto-because of the depth of field on the subject.....I took a 1000mm photo at SFO in the 1970's of a British Airways 747 and a PSA 727 landing wingtip to wingtip-take from the side and slightly ahead-and it looks like they're touching each other-it's B&W photo though is why I've never posted it on this db.

Thanks a lot. But talking about problems: this spot is only good until about 9.00 or 10.00 AM. The big birds arrive between 6.00 and 7.00. That't pretty early, don't you think?
BTW, your shot looks cool. What an angle!!
As said, I know that spot, and I would say, 200mm to 250mm would be the absolute maximum to be used there. I have uploaded a few pics, which were taken there. All of them were taken with my Sony F707 without TC, what means, with a maximum of 190mm.

Gerardo - 6-7am is fine!!! I got up at 5am when I went to MAN for the weekend a couple of months ago, only to find it was cloudy . But unless you have a huge journey, its worth waking up that early!! Those pictures are stunning.
I want to go to ZRH so bad . Gerardo if I ever get round to coming i'll give you a shout, ok!!!
