    Hi Christina

    looks great - We are off "to the sun", (Southern Hemisphere), in just over two weeks for a month - same place as last year

    been pretty miserable all over Europe for the past two months, (even the birds have stayed under cover!)

    "The Heads" - Knysna

    Nikon V1 - with 10 - 30mm kit - ISO 200 1/1250 at f7.1
    [​IMG]

    Below - Nikon D300 with Sigma 10 - 20mm - ISO 200 1/3200 at f5.6 - at 20mm, (really about 30mm because of DX sensor) - I actually got the metering, (spot), and f stop wrong as it was in a custom set up for birds, (and a different lens) - but it turned out OK after a little shadow work in LR
    One day earlier than above, (11th Jan) - also 1500hrs above versus 11am below - so not really fair

    They compare really well at these sizes although the Nikon 300 has the edge (you'll be pleased to hear!)

    imo the sigma 10-20 is a really underrated lens.

    Great shots! I'm envious of those off to southern climes. My only trip in the near-term will be to Boston (Brrrrr) to celebrate my mother's 98th birthday in March.

    We actually do have a winter, although not what you Wisconsin folk would call winter!
