Cogs I think you need to fix some of your EXIF data. Several of the samples show the lens as the 100-400. One says it's the 100-400 @ 600 mm.

That is a POTN exif glitch...
Can be corrected by clicking Edit Exif and click lens - then choose from lenses you own - if you did add this lens to your gear...

After trying to dial in the focus I sent the Sigma C to Sigma to make them adjust the lens. I got it back and they told that the focus adjustment was perfect and they did nothing. So I have to get better using the lens and this is what I managed to get today. It's also better to know it's user error than a bad sample or bad adjustment;-)a,

The airshow was at CFB Trenton (Ontario) run under the name Quinte International Air Show. From what I understand it's been many years since they had an air show there but current plans are to hold one every second year now. The full album set is here.

Not counting the Snowbird set about 75% of the flying photos are from the 1D4 & Sigma.

Hey guys, help an old blind man out.

I'm looking for the serial number on my lens and can only find one number that seems possible, but I can't believe it's correct.

It's in white letters directly 180 degrees from the white line that shows the top when you mount it, and it's just 3 digits, "015"

Is it possible that I have the "#15" lens? of am I looking in the wrong place?

thanks.

Pretty sure the 015 signifies the model, C 015, being Contemporary 2015
Sport being, S 014, I think....

Thank you! Looked at it for about 10 minutes with 3X magnifiers and never found it. Sheesh! :)


Much higher number, now mine could be upwards of the 54 millionth copy! lol ;)
