I took the new Nikon 300 PF out for a spin last week but can't really say much about it other than its very small and light (obviously) as I did not really find anything I could test it out on in the forest. I did see a pair of Silver breasted broadbills (Serilophus lunatus) though and got a few shots I was very happy with.

D800e - Nikon 300 PF - ISO 400, f5.6 1/80, VR on.

Great shots! :)

I am trying to figure out if those rumors about problem with VR of 300 PF are true or not. Could be false rumors spread by Canon fanatics.

There was definitely a problem Rushen, with the VR and the 800 series bodies primarily - but its fixed now in the lens software. Seems Nikon have made a few of these QA blunders of late.

Heres another silver breasted broadbill - as I like to point out - I don't know anything about birding, but there are so many of these in KK right now you can't miss.

In KKC there is a Silver Broadbill Nest about 60 meters down from the parking place before you start up the hill to PT which is attracting a lot of attention from cameras. the birds are taking no notice of either these or the traffic going past and are going about their business of feeding young in the nest.
I have photos of both parents carrying food, one seems to take insects the other fruit, perhaps one of the young is a vegetarian.

There are also Longtail Broadbill nests over the water at 27.5 KM one was there 2 months ago the other is new since then.
