Sigma 70-300 APO DG lens shots

Some Sigma shots from a bloke who is too poor to be able to afford the new Pentax 60-250mm DA lens..... :-)


So I have to make do....

Thanks Jack. Yes, I was. Two of them - the 1st shot and the last shot - have been published in a couple of glossy Oz travel magazines, "Get Up and Go" and "Cruise Passenger".

Wouldn't complain about those shots. Nearly bought that lens once, but came out of the shop with a second hand Sigma 70-200/f2.8 and 1.4x TC!!

Good move! I'd rather have come out of the shop with a second hand Sigma 70-200mm also!

You have some good shots on your website....

As I said, Miserere...I have no choice but to make do! As a general rule I only have kit lenses or second-hand manual focus lenses - apart from splashing out on a Sigma 10-20mm.

And thanks for the comment, Sanderscapes.

Nice travel shots.
You've brought out the best in this lens.

Thanks

Thanks, Ash. I might add that I am just as poor in terms of post processing software. I use PS Elements version 2!
