Thanks for the comments all, the route which was first planned was changed later. sunday and monday stayed the same as far as I know but on saterday they routed: Baisy-Thy > Saint-Ghislain > De Panne beach > Moorsele > Koksijde. So no Amougies.

I hope they will repeat this next year :!:

Sorry but I saw it to yesterday.
Looks like the newer 50-500 DG doesn't has a seperate switch for the AF. But the older ones do HAVE one.
But a D70 50-500 combo does has AF!

Greetings
Rick
Correct, but mine is apparently broken :evil: Thanks anyway for all your help guys :wink:

Andries wrote:The same can be said about the Sigma EX 80-400 OS. The autofocus is remarkably slow while the Sigma EX 50-500 has HSM (very fast and silent autofocus).
Autofocus on the Sigma 50-500 does not work on the D70 or any other Nikkon in the D..series. Only manual focus!
