Still Evaluating the DO Zoom

This morning, I had it over on Peebles Island with my crop sensor EOS 7D body. I already know the lens does not perform as well image quality wise on this body compared to the full frame 5D Mark III. But the crop factor makes the lens act as if it were a 480mm lens rather than 300mm and for wildlife, birds in particular, that reach is necessary.

I pretty much covered the island this morning as I drove over and parked rather than walking over. The bridge construction is annoying and driving leaves two miles worth of time and energy for the island that would otherwise be used getting there and back.

I've been using a running and biking app to document my last couple of walks. Here is a map of my walk which added up to 3.5 miles.



And here are some shots. The deer shots are single image and the trail scenic is a three file HDR composite. Nothing is cropped.
