[ATTACH=JSON]{"data-align":"none","data-attachmentid":"3835163","data-size":"large"}[/ATTACH] Crikey, that is sharp ( your shot, not mine ! ) We perhaps take her a bit for granted ,as such a familiar old friend, but she certainly turns head wherever she goes. She rumbled over Amersham on Sunday on the way back from the Highclere display, and the local community facebook site was buzzing with excitement.

Forgive me if the info is else where, but what camera and lens did you use??

Great images! I really hope they let the paint finish go completely, I’d love to see it back in natural metal.

[USER="77992"]Old Towzer[/USER] If you click on one of the images and look at the page on Flickr, the camera and lens details, including some settings, are shown below the photo. It would appear to be a Canon EOS-1D X with a 500mm lens.

Thanks, that is correct, handheld ish using a monopod as a support :) A bit heavy and unwieldy, but it gives stunning results.

It certainly does! I wish I could get that sharpness out of my (admittedly much cheaper) lens :)
