Quite startling sharpness, every tiny detail is recorded. Of course this is helped by the bird almost filling the frame, but still, I think you've got a decent buy there!
As for the bird - what a beauty - if he fancies migrating over here (UK) I'd love to capture him amongst the greenery of our trees! :-)

That is a great lens, not only for the detail, but for the wonderful bokeh it produces.

Strong detailing in the picture (right down to the flakes of snow on the cardinal's plumage). I like the colors, the catchlight in the eye and the sense that is created by your new lens that one could reach right out and touch the cardinal.

I find myself wanting to go with a cropping from the right and left edges to go along with the vertical nature of the cardinal in the image.

The birds in your neighborhood do not seem to be starving, as a matter of fact they seem quite well fed :-) Great detail here Lee! What does Ms Gracie think of all these birdy pictures? :-)

Great shot of the cardinal. Did you get snow or rain, our lawn is completely covered again.
