all the pics above sept the moon pics were hand held.
Not bad for $200 lens with a macro mode. Imho the same quality from the Bigma less 200mm, $800, and a few pounds.

They are all shot today also ;p
Tick Tally so far... 5 and counting.
Im just glad mosquitoes arnt out yet.
Gonna head back out for a couple hours till the sun comes down then pass out.

I'll be posting more tomorrow from today.
Found an Osprey nest ^.^

Yes, all freehand.
I dont like to lug my tripod around with my while hiking.
I need to find a pack mule... err girlfriend who likes to hike :lol:


This lens has decent AF.
Not the greatest but again not bad for $200

These little black birds are fast and tiny.
I was able to AF on him DURING flight THROUGH foxtails.
I got skills but I need to give respect to the lens also.

I was also able to track onto Carpenter bees in flight.
Smaller than the sensor square. It didnt lock on every time but I was pretty amazed it worked at all with how quick they move :lol:

The ONLY downside to this lens is there tends to be some purple fringing. If you look up at the woodpecker shot you can see it.
Nothing that has ever ruined any shot I took tho.

The color is pretty decent too.
The cherry blossoms above. Zero saturation on that, nada, zilch.
Thats full frame of the photo.

Just a FYI.
I might be purchasing the 100-400L today.
Saved up enough for it. If that works out well in a few weeks or so this lens might be up for sale. I hate keeping things around if I dont use them.

It's great. I was rocky with it on my frist day, but I'm getting adjusted to it.

Definitely worth the money IMO.
