Camera Present – since February 2014 - DSLR 16 mega-pixel full frame sensor. Previous - April 2007 to January 2014 - DSLR 10 mega-pixel APS-C (2/3's) sensor. Whilst in the latter years rather dated in digital photography terms, it always gave very good 'natural' images. The only real criticism I had was the noise when using ISO’s of 400 & above. Lenses   Telephoto - 600mm f4 - September 2017 500mm f4 - April 2014 to August 2017 Macro 105mm micro lens - 2007 to date, mainly used for insect photography. Very pleased with the all-round performance of the lens particularly the image quality. 200mm micro lens - June 2014 to date Standard – 24 to 70mm zoom Lens Accessories – 1.4x tele-converter - 2014 Other lens used 28 to 300 mm telephoto zoom - May 2011, although not a macro lens it does have a minimum focus of just under two feet throughout the entire zoom range providing a bit more reach for the smaller/flighty insects. Gave reasonable image quality for close up subjects, but for anything a bit further away the results seemed a bit soft. 80 to 400 mm telephoto zoom, 2007 to March 2011 (sadly no more due a rather careless moment when it rolled off a hide shelf breaking the barrel against the bench seat. Unfortunately it wasn't insured and the estimated cost of repair exceeded the original purchase price). Mainly used for bird photography, plus points - compact and good image quality for subjects close to medium distance but performance deteriorated for the more distant subjects. On the downside focusing was rather sluggish and occasionally 'hunted', which proved a tad frustrating when trying to capture moving subjects.
