Pre-Screening Wing-view Photos

Hi everyone, Are these photos worthy of A.net? If not, what adjustments do I need to make? <a href="http://www.facebook.com/image120/photos/a.471497872973049.1073741827.471493892973447/613126668810168/?type=1&relevant_count=1" target="_blank">www.facebook.com/image120/photos/a.4...10168/?type=1&...

RE: New Lens For Aviation Photography

Hi Vik,

Good point. I'm leaning towards the 80-400mm, as that really suits my focal range.

Any thoughts? Maybe some third party lenses to consider?

Thanks,

New Lens For Aviation Photography

Hi All!

I'm currently using a Nikon 70-300mm VR (the new version). It's a decent lens, but anything past 200mm is soft. I'm considering upgrading to an 80-400mm or 70-200f4. Which one should I go for?

Thanks,

Calvin
