I didn't take my step, so didn't go up to Coppice where there is a narrow gap in the fences on the inside that gives a nice angle - but don't tell everyone :-)

Interesting again.

Some of the shots look like much more than a 500mm lens but with an FX sensor that's about all you should get.

I don't get the same effect using a 70-200 lens with a 2x extender and a 1.3x crop sensor which should, in theory, give about a 520mm equivalent.

That said I have about half the resolution on my sensor so it's not quite a like for like comparison and may explain the apparent difference I see.
