Is that for a digital or film SLR?  400mm on a digital (equiv to close to 600 on film) is one hell of lens!  Is it light enough to hold steady? Getting very jealous... 

Its on a DSLR (Nikon D300). I looked at a Tamron a while ago, but found it too light. The barrels are plastic. This one is a Tokina AT-X 840 AF, an older model I found on eBay. The metal barrels make it much heavier and keeps the balance feeling nice. Tokina are made by the same company as Hoya & Kood filters.

Hand held? Not a chance, must be on a tripod.

I did give it a quick whirl yesterday, but the light was very poor, so the results aren't really anything to go by. But it is in cracking condition, if a little noisy when focusing.

Of course I don't expect to get results up to the standard of my Nikon 18 - 200mm lens, or even the rather old Sigma 70 - 300mm, but at £175.00 + P&P its a fraction of the cost of a Sigma 120 - 400mm (£715.00), Tamron 200 - 500mm (£870) or Nikon 80 - 400mm (£1072.00) or the Nikon 200 - 400mm (£5120.00)

I have never been brave enough to buy a lens on ebay - I am convinced I will receive a tube full of broken glass and an assertion "that it was all-right when I put it in the post".  I know what you mean about the heft of the old lenses being reassuring - my nikkor 55-200 weighs in a less than a quarter of my old sigma 75-200 (but then the sigma stopped down to 2.8 as opposed to 4.5 and  has much large objective - must be almost twice the area to gather light). 

the ebay lens possibility has suddenly reminded me of a project that I fancied doing - building a cut price macro tube.  You need a cheap lens to act as your objective, a tube, and basically some hacked body/lens covers - I could pick up a super cheap cargo that has nothing to do with my camera (but has an external aperture ring).

Imatfaal,
As I said this lens is in cracking condition, certainly nothing wrong that a new filter wont sort out.

Have sent you a PM.

Dear Diary tomorrow I have loads of tests at the lab.. Checking all my blood work and cardiac enzymes.
The doctor says I am experiencing Diastolic Heart failure and has restricted my activity even more now.. He says heart rate no more then 60.. apparently the heart rate rises and my heart starts failing.. I am not sure what to expect.. he has upped my blood pressure meds to double the dose upped my lassix to double the dose.. and doubled the pravastatin and has been monitoring me for the last week and a few days.. My swelling is still prevalent in the joints legs, feet, hands! My face has finally gone down some, but legs,feet, and hands are still some  what swollen...
I have been off and on uncomfortable this evening,but it just seems to make me feel worn out..
Now on the good side To day was a gorgeous day.. I went to the pool early and walked laps in the pool stopping when the heart rate rose to 60..
After the pool I Sat in my car talked to a couple people on phone then went had a very light lunch with a fellow from the pool. then Called my Ex and asked him if he would take me to the beach so I could watch the water again.. you tend to really miss little things like that when you cannot simply do them.. The water was lovely the surfers were out in full force having a great day.. there was barely a breeze and it was warm and lovely.. I was not able to get down to the water but I expect to drive to Trinidad head tomorrow and give it my best effort it seems to be the beach with the easies and shortest access... so Tomorrow is my dream for tonight..Tests, beach and if I am lucky There will be some kids playing in the sand and some laughter...etc.. I really miss having children around me.....

Is anyone else having good weather where you are? Its supposed to stay nice like this for another 7 to 9 days...before a change is expected...Seems some what spring like here .. there were Rhododendrons in full bloom and the cherry trees have been fooled into blooming etc.. I saw a beautiful red Camilia tree in full bloom also.. Just so lovely..... Life was lovely today....

Karen - I had an awful day, but it's over now and I can go home.  Glad you had a good day - your previous post on this thread on the 2nd was a little emotionally charged and I hope all is OK.  London is getting close to spring - two days ago it was chilly, but this evening it is not at all bad.  No buds on my fruit trees though - and normally would be expecting them now/fairly soon.

Dear Diary;

The weather today can be summurised thus

The rain it raineth on the just
and on the unjust fella.
But mostly on the just because
The unjust steals, the justs umbrella.

Imatfaal, I am sorry your day was not good. Sometimes days like that can be really difficult, as you know.I hope the following days are better for you.
I am okay.. I am trying to stay positive. I think that is the most important thing right now and following my doctors advice and instructions.

Well It will be nice to see spring come forward in glorious bloom. I hope it brings you happiness and some sunshine and a light heart.
My fruit trees especially the apples did not do well last year they needed more water... Hope your fruit does well this year.

It seems to be attributed to many people, the earliest I can find is Lord Bowen, a Judge and all round victorian gentleman who died in 1894.

On a similar vein and also reflecting todays weather, here is something undeniably by the wonderful Milligan...
There are holes in the sky,
Where the rain gets in.
They're not very large,
So the rain is thin.

Isabella was a rescue from an animal shelter. She was so small we thought she was a kitten weighing in at under 3 lbs, but instead she was a starved 1 1/2 yr old. She now weighs 10 lbs, has SEVEN toes on each front foot and five on the back.

Dear diary... I am having a slow day today but am sitting on my bed enjoying the sunshine coming through my windows and watching the white fluffy clouds as they seem to be pretty stationary today with little to no breeze... Quite lovely and yet there is a bit of a bitter chill in the air out in the cool of the shade...

How is the weather in your neck of the woods today?

I think I'll get Mrs G...go for a nice long roll


I'll have sausage, bacon and eggs in mine please.

Wouldn't you prefer a roll with a little honey?

Dear diary,

We are having quite the storm here tonight. The wind is blowing quite hard tonight..feels a bit restless like me...and my legs tonight.Anyone have any tips that I may not have tried to reduce the antsy feelings so I can sleep...?

Well despite my attempt to sleep I ended up standing in the hot shower trying to get my legs to relax.. then laid back down to try to go to sleep again  to no avail!

Now this is the working on three days with maybe two hours sleep total and I am still awake....
Keep falling asleep and waking up within ten minutes I just don't get it.. then my legs are driving me nuts!
Hope you all have been having a great Sunday...

It's snowed here for 23 straight days.  Some days we get over 6", others just a couple of snow showers.  Today started sunny and mild, but has turned chilly with a dark cloud hovering over the mountains to the west.  I was hoping to break the "snow string", but it looks like Geezer (who lives ~150 miles northwest of here) is sending us at least enough to keep the streak alive.

They got six and a half feet of the stuff last week at the Lookout Pass ski hill! (It's right on the Montana/Idaho line, which is a real pain, because you have to keep switching your watch between Mountain time and Pacific time as you ski down the hill.)

A few years back, we had a lot of snow around Memorial Day, so they opened the ski area at Lookout for a free ski day. (Memorial Day falls on the last Monday IN MAY!)

Not much here in Arcata, Blue Lake, or the McKinleyville area either!

Up to 25 straight days- there was a trace of snow after midnight and some very dark looking storm clouds creeping over the horizon once again.
