I occasionaly get exicted about a topside image and post it on Wetpixel. That how I felt about the images from yesterday's shoot when I viewed them on the computer. So far, I'm very pleased with the 70-300VR.

Beautifull colours and composition; I think I see one of those in my future.

Very nice! I bought one of these too and received it a couple of days ago. But it has been nothing but rain here (yes, it rains in Hawaii too). I will try to do some surf photography over the weekend and post here.

Nice shot by the way, great colors, some more details? Tripod or hand held? I found the VR to be very good in this lens.

This was shot pre-dawn: f11 @ 1/2 sec. The VR is good but not that good. Tripod mounted.

Thom Hogan just reviewed this lens and gave it 4 out of 5 stars. Pretty good for its price!
