Thanks for the note Elsa and Andrea...
I would be happy to share some of our work and have you see a comparison of similar images between the 200-400VR and the 200-500VR. I will post two links to my blog (apologetically). Before i do this... is posting to this board via paid membership only? If that is the case, let me know and I will become a subscriber, as I believe in supporting solid forum communities... until I sort the membership side of things out, here are two posts.

Puffins from Iceland (called "Can it Get Any Better") http://btleventhal.com/bruceleventhal/2016/10/15/can-it-get-any-better
Expensive v Affordable Gear (called "The $6200 Question") http://btleventhal.com/bruceleventhal/2016/3/23/the-6200-question

You can always tell Tamy's work from the gear in the picture subheading (D7100 + 200-500VR) vs my shots (D4/D500 + 200-400VR)

cheers,
bruce
regards,
bruce

Damn those Puffins are gorgeous...
Bruce - you are welcome to post your images in the thread. Multiple images is fine in one thread. You obviously can start a new thread (might be a good idea) as it will attract fresh interest.
No one is forced to be a paid subscriber here - but since this forum is run by like minded volunteers, we don't expect them to foot the bill for our little pleasures - hence the subscription to pay for hosting etc. Its not a for - profit site.

Thanks for the images and blog post. Makes me want to buy a 200-500mm, but I would likely use it way too rarely, so I better not.

I thought mine took great pictures although it was a bit heavy for my style of shooting.  It was ruined in the flood.  I am considering getting a Tamron 100-400 for hand holding.
