600mm with SR

Great shots posted by Marc Langille on the Pentax Forum. BTW he uses the FA* 250-600/5.6 ED [IF].

Definitely great shots, interesting to know if he used his Gitzo/Wimberley setup and SR switched on. Usually I have SR switched off when shooting with the 600mm, have to try switching it on!!

I use SR when the Bigma is on a monopod or even if I'm resting on a solid surface, IMHO both will still generate enough movement to warrant use of SR, as I believe will the use of a Gimball.

Tom, isnt it about time you upped to a K5 and made your rig a bit lighter

Starting to leave SR on more often now particularly for BIF shots which seems to improve sharpness.
As to the K5 would love one Alan but with the Wimberley/600mm I would need a larger lump of lead to balance it, stops the barrel fouling the Gimbal arm.
