I think it does,with the longer lens you can get nearer,but you would be on a tripod,which is not much good for action shots,400mm is to big for me to hand hold,so it would be the shorter focal lens,by the way cracking shot Charles ,the auto fx mystical is the one i use. Angela

Angela my new lens finally got a chance to try it out ??? I have to say it is a little heavy . But I didn't have much trouble holding it ?? like you do a lot of action shots and I don't like tripod's that much .

Great work Charles. I also looking a telezoom lens that didn't need a tripot which is very compact, light with a good quality and easy bring anyway. I just found 70-300 with a good image stabilizer, compact, light and had a best result without tripod. But you'd better use a tripod for the best landscape result. If you had got the first best shot, you just need a little time for make it more beautiful with software. I never use a software, I'm trying about enjoying adjust photo with software and make me headache. I thought that I'm a purist.

Angela as you must know I don't shoot Raw. I don't want to take the time you need for a raw photo ?? Angela there is a camera you should look at ? ITs Nikon Coolpix P500 & it has a all in one lens from a 36x f3.4-5.7 21.5 800mm lens. A friend of mine has one & her photos are as good as I get with my 400 - 500mm lens .

(Note these photos havent had any re-work on them wanted you to see them befor rework ??)

This was a very interesting conversation. I am a dedicated p&s shooter who does not use raw. Honestly, I sure would like to use a big camera, big lens, & raw set up one day. But, I know that the $$$ just won't let that happen. An excellent comparative photo. Thank you for the post. But, I have just one question. Do you use auto focus or manual focus?

thank you all for the comments Great talking to you about it .

BOB like Angela may say I shot most all of my photos at auto or landscape or close-up or sports ( for action shots). I don't have the time to make the settings needed for the quick shot's I take ?
I have software that makes one photo look almost like HDR , so I don't use raw that much at all.
