Well I think I am in awe, got this lens this afternoon and it is the shizzle, as all have said. Oh and it is huge and sparks a lot of curosity from anyone that happens to be close by, something I will have to deal with I guess. My Aunt and Uncle now live in Sufers Paradise in Australia and used to own this boat, my Aunt asked if I would get a shot of it so I thought I may as well give this lens a first go. It was meant to be fine here all day and after a 30 minute drive to get to the location it had become overcast with little chance of any sneaky peaks from the sun, all shots taken in the hour before sunset. What you wont be able to see at this size is the subject that is in focus is sharp as a tack, heron is a little soft being the exception. 1: The Seahorse 2 2: My Aunt chose this one as one to have printed and shipped to her. The tip of the mast gets a little lost at this size, shouldnt be too bad in print though (large format). You will see I have changed the colour of the stripe to match how it was when they owned it. 3: Random scenery shot. 4: Took a few shots of this heron, the light was fading fast and I should have put in more effort, I have a 1.4 teleconverter on its way which I am glad I ordered for this type of work. C&C welcomed as always.
