I reccomend not using the Panasonic Lumix, the Fuji would be a lot better, or a Canon 50D if you have that kind of money.

Sigma 50-500 is  real hard to beat for us shipspotters. I use it with a tripod and mirror lockup.
All the range is there except  for the under 50mm.
It is rather slow however in low lights with  ships moving.
And at  very close quarters  for my aerials I would go for a faster lense. But then I would have to carry a second camera on the bridge .

Stevo,

The Canon EF 100-400mm lense is fantastic - I've had one for 4 years now and have never looked back. It is very soft at 400mm, pull it back to 390mm and the image is sharp as you like - sweet spot is f8.

I use mine for all kinds of photography, infact all of my shots on here are taken with it.

Happy snapping

Steve

I echo Steve's comments about the Canon 100mm-400mm lens. I've had mine for about three years and it is ideal for what I use it for.

Just browse through my own photographs of ships coming, and going, to Hartlepool and the results can clearly be seen.

Just for the record I am using a Canon 1000D camera.

Hi,

I have the Canon 100mm-400mm and the Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8 USM,
Both are really great lenses,
But at the Maasvlakte during the summer we have real problems with the heatwaves on the water.
But only when you takes pics from 300-400mm
Al the pics between the 300-400mm you can throw them in the trash.
I have the 500D.

Regards,

Dave

Like Ian, I too use the Sigma 70-300MM with my Canon 350D.
And like Dave, you notice the heat haze at longer distances but that would not change even with a different lens; it is all due to the weather.
Here at Southampton, you can hear the "Yippee!" when the wind is coming from the north or north east. Usually, it comes from the south west and brings a lot of haze and moisture in the air.
The northerly wind is nice, cold and clear! (also rare!)

Morning Derek,
No. it isn't that bad over here.
If only I had a decent job that paid a decent wage!
So, after a long wait, it looks very much as if I am off to the mountains of south west Saudi Arabia (Abha).
It will be interesting to see the place again after a 30 year absence.
No chance of seeing any ships there, I am afraid.
Lots of chances of getting a new camera at a decent price though!
Cheers
Kelvin
