I had the day to myself today and decided to run out to the Cleveland Browns Training Camp. (Inspired somewhat by other peoples posts)

Well, the Tokina 80-400 is on a UPS truck, coming back from repair, so I had to dust off the Promoster 100-300mm... YUK!

The colors are off (though the amount of Orange didn't help!) they are somewhat, very not sharp. But it was fun anyways, and I got a couple of shots that I am not totally embarased to show.

Enjoy
Kevin

You did the best you can. I'm sure that better lens would yield much better results.

Now I can see how superior the old Canon 100-300 USM is compare to the Promaster :)

It really is interesting to see the difference a lens can make. I was at first told that my tokina was unfixable and that they were going to refund my money. I considered going back to the promaster (and using the cash some other way) or upgrading to a sigma 50-500.

This photo shoot at the browns camp helped me decide a lot of things....

1) the promaster sucks. We argue alot on these boards on lens quality, and most are really good, but damn! The CA and very poor IQ in these are soooo obvious.

2) I didn't think to take a monopod (thought they would be prohibited, but it turns out that they were not) the sigma 4 1/2 pound lens would have been really heavy.

3) While you can take a good picture with bad equipment, there are some things that you cannot overcome.

I really like the compositions, but the IQ is painful.

Thanks for looking
Kevin
