Hi Jeroen.
My congratulation on purchasing of a great camera and perfect testing of it. Very impressive scene, especially glance of the bird. Wingspread is amazing as well as POV and freezing of the scene at whole. It is clear that bokeh of your lens is stunning. Bravo and thanks for visit of my page and nice comments. I hope you will share your impression from the camera some time.
