Why are some of you being such jerks? Obviously, the OP is new at photography if he is shooting 1-second handheld shots. Maybe some constructive criticism instead of "LOL, your pics suck."

TBH, I agree. Sure, the OP didn't need to make like 5 threads about the 17-50, but its easy to just not read them or reply to them, and the ignore list is there for a reason. I don't get the purpose behind some of these comments other than to bolster one's e-tough guy rating.

Dont ask for HONEST feedback if you can't take it "dude".

How exactly was what you posted "feedback"?

there are countless of articles to go about and read and learn - we started off around the same time... it helps to search and not just wait for answers sometimes

heck 3 threads on the same subject popped up on the flash forum and they were asking about pretty much the same thing!

+1

Though, I must say that the shots of the turtle are MUCH better than any of the previously posted shots. Better color, sharpness, and white-balance. :)

It's a great lens but all the shots seem soft to me also. For me, 1/8 sec. is the slowest shutter speed I can consistently use with a stationary subject.

ISO 1600 and 1/10th of a second can do that to a lens.;)

Check to see if your Sigma can handle AI Servo on the turtle. That should be the real test. :lol:

pkilla - congrats on the lens, I am just getting used to mine as well. I have to be honest with you, though - I think people will take you more serious if you maybe take some pictures outside with better light, and also if you can use better wording and punctuation in your posts. I'm just being honest, not trying to be mean, but it's pretty hard to even read your posts.
