As foretold in yesterday's caption, I took my 300mm f/4 to the zoo today. I had a lot of fun photographing the animals, and there was quite a bit of action. The hippo, Komodo dragon, tigers, orangatans, tortoises, mountain goats and more were all doing stuff! This koala was not, but it's my favorite photo from the day. I mean, look at it! So adorable!
I'm still pretty happy with the lens, but for my upcoming Africa trip I think I might go with the 70-300mm zoom instead. It's a whole stop slower, but it's half the weight of the 300mm f/4. I'll be sure to keep you posted, don't you worry.
More Zoo Photos!
