DA* 200mm 2.8

Hey Gang! Just brought home my new DA* 200mm 2.8. Was just playing around in the back yard when I got home, but here are a few "sample" shots.

What's the deal with the quality? You can definitely say data loss in there.

Hmm, it looks like you are at ISO 1600 or something.

Yeah, after zooming in on it I can clearly see compression particles around the branch on the first picture. I get my 200mm tomorrow, I hope that is not what I have to look forward to.

I think you're seeing compression because they're so.... compressed. These are not flickr linked photos, or anything like that, they're uploaded to the attachment location on this forum, I think.

I have had this lens for quite some time now, but have not had much of a chance to use it yet. However, I have been quite impressed by its performance so far. I think you will be very satisfied with it.
