Just another quick shot but at almost 100% crop went through my normal processing. Not "L" sharpness but happy with detail extracted with crop.

Took it for a walk, mounted on monopod, in a local Nature reserve today. Got a few O.K. shots and am happy with lens. Maybe not "L" quality BUT certainly not "L" price. Sure it will improve when I get used to it as I have found in the past that this is the norm. 1st shot straight out the camera with no PP, others with my normal quick fix and auto sharpen in PS Elements 5.

Sitting here in Heathrow awaiting my connect to the US and thought I'd post a couple of quickies from my trip to Kenya. A mostly overcast day, so the lighting was pretty flat. These were taken at 500mm f/8-9 or so. All done on my 12" iBook G4 and DPP, so I cannot evaluate them as carefully as I can with Aperture. No pp other than conversion to JPEG. Full-frames followed by 100% crops.

Some sort of game bird.

Some kind of waterfowl at 403mm. This one had some sun on it.

:lol::lol: The ol' Helmeted Guineafowl is a tough birdy to shoot. They never keep still when they're on walkabout. The brown bird is a Hamerkop.

My take on this lens so far is that we have lots of images taken way off in the distance and cropped and also some people being too quick to post to be 'one of the first'. Any lens performs best within certain conditions and usage. There is a lot of variability in IQ so far on different fora and I would always take the best shots I can find and use them as examples of capability, plus checking the EXIF data to see where it seems to perform best. I'd ignore any others. In theory, this should be a solid safari lens: 500mm at f8.0 it would need to produce strong shots.

The HSM focusing seems to have very nice performance.

The Hammerkop and Giraffe look reasonable but f8 but not earth shattering...

Not bad but allot of sharpening done there... The noise is really starting to show even at that low res.

Another thing we may be seeing unfortunately is the Sigma high variation of quality between lens copies.

Or rather the high variation between those that know what they are doing and those that think that they know what they are doing. I am starting to think that most of the early adopters are just throwing shots up just for the sake of it. If they spent the time on the shots like they normally would I think the results would be much better.
