I have a Sony digital camera which serves me well but in order to upgrade our pictures and get those beautiful bird shots Mike wanted to get a DSLR. He researched and read many reviews and considering our budget decided on a Nikon 60. He was able to get a bundle which included the camera body, and two lens. He came home with a 18-55 mm lens and a 55-200 mm lens. He was like a kid with a new toy and even took a class offered in Atlanta on the use of his new Nikon 60. Even though the quality of the pictures and the distance was so much improved over my Sony he still wanted to be able to get closer shots. It was while reading Fred and Jo Wishnies' journal and admiring Fred’s wonderful pictures that he decided that he needed to get yet another lens. This one is a 150-500 mm. Now that is a huge lens. Of course this lens has to be set up on a
tripod but it is certainly worth the effort.
