With the help of digital technology with very good image quality at high ISO allows me now to get back into shooting wild life again. I chanced upon this Nikkor 600mm f5.6 IF-ED AIS used with a good price and decided to give it a try. Anyway, this is the first lens that I use with no German origin.
This is a very old lens, the very early design of the 600mm series from Nikon. At f5.6 the weight is more manageable by me. There is already the used of special lens elements to reduce chromatic aberation. With internal focusing the length of the lens remains unchange thus very good for practical use, especially if both the lens and the camera body are mounted on tripods.
After bought the lens of course I went to try some easy subjects. Below is a black swan in Singapore Botanical Garden.
