Soccer Mom

I have a friend that is a soccer mom & have been shooting a few games this year. I have been using my K10s , one with the Tamron 300/2.8 & the other with a Series1 200/3. I have gotten better at manual focusing but still have a lot of out of focus shots. I have been wanting to try a AF lens so I picked up a DA 50-200 to try.. I mounted it on my K100 & a monopod for it first outing . When I arrived at the game I saw my friend, the soccer mom & handed her the K100 which she had used once at a previous game with the 18-50.. She never got out of her lawn chair & was shooting into the sun but got some good shots.. I think I will be using the 20-200 next time.. wildherre

Fantastic shots! Just a little oversharpened.

Bigma really does well if good lighting is allowed. I noticed the lens performing not so well around 50 -200mm end in terms of colour rendition.

Thanks for sharing

I agree. I really like the harsh lighting. It works well for these photos.

Really like the photos, especially the second one. The third one seems to have a pretty strong blue cast to it.
