    This is great news, thanks. Can you tell what type of adapter I would require, manual focus is not an issue. Thanks again. Neil.

    Nikon 1 J5

    According to the above link from Mike the 200-500 is OK to use with the J5 and FT1 adapter. I always use a quality tripod and gimbal head so there is no stress between the camera ans lens.

    Nikon 1 J5

    Thanks very much Mike. I notice that my version of the 600mm f/4 is on the non compatible list but the newer 200-500 is on the list that says it should work. So is it a case of a firmware update to make the 200-500 work on the J5 with the FT1 adapter. Thanks in advance. Neil.

    Nikon 1 J5

    Hi all, a bit of help required please. I have just bought a new J5 so that I can take record shots of birds at distance with my New 200-500 Nikon lens and my Nikon 600mm f/4 VRl. I already have the FT1 adapter but when I put either of the above 2 lenses on the camera a message is displayed...

    Remove lens hood

    Hi, hope someone can help me. I have just bought the WonderPana filter system for my Nikon fit Tokina 16-28 ATX Pro FX f/2.8 and want to remove the lens hood to fit the filter system. I watched a video on YouTube on how to remove it from the smaller DX lens and was wondering if it's the same for...

    Recommend a lens

    A bit off topic from birds, but I am getting into landscape photography and just wanted to know if anyone here also dies it. I need a fast lens, f/2.8 to go with my Nikon D810. Doesn't have to be a Nikkor lens, I will consider a third party. Thanks. Neil.

    Same one as I use Brin. I had a 180 sigma but it wasn't anywhere near as good as the 200 micro.

    Rare and Scarce Birds in Staffordshire

    It's still being fed locusts. This picture was taken yesterday evening. I went to see it on the second day and it was feeding naturally. I was asked by some if I thought it was ok to feed it locusts and I said No. When I went back a couple of days later there were loads of photographers feeding...

    Hen Harrier. I suppose you pick your spot and hope it comes fairly close to where you are at the time, the last 2 times I have seen it have been quite brief. Very little chance of decent images, but patience pays off I suppose. Just had a Brambling in the garden with 7 Bullfinches, will keep my...

    Smew and Hen Harrier Hi all, long time since I posted anything. Just getting back into it a bit after a short break. Had a look at the Smew at Central forrest park the other day, managed a few shots that were ok. Then I have been up to see the Hen Harrier a few times, only brief views of it...

    I'm loving mine at the moment, I have just bought a second hand 600mm f/4 AF-SII non VR. I still need to get used to it and need to read up more on the best settings for bird photography, and especially birds in flight with this lens. Here are a few images from the past few days.

    Common/Mealy Redpoll

    Had another Common/Mealy Redpoll visiting the garden for the last few days. The second one since December 2013.. Still getting upwards of 50 birds in at times. It seems to favour feeding on the ground, but I have seen it on the feeder. Managed to get some pictures through the window which I can...
