600mm with SR (1 Viewer)

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. |=)|
