This was fun. It cost me like $60 but it was worth it. It's a great lens crystal clear down to f2.8. I know I probably should have come off 2.8 a little but I didn't I really wanted to the shutter speed because without the VR it was hard for me to hold it still enough. It was a fun experiment and I plan to rent more lenses in the future! Here's my best shot of my daughter. It was taken out front of my house at about 7:30pm in front of a big tree. Originally I was going to use our house as a background but it's a light color and I thought it would distract from the subject. I used my LP160 strobe zip-tied to the end of a 4' level, with a little 4" softbox on it, at 1/8 or 1/16 power, can't remember. The 4' level was resting on my hip at about a 45 degree angle camera left. 1/125 shutter, f2.8 iso 400, 120mm focal length, 180mm 35mm equiv.
