Me and My Bigma + K10D
Posted By: steve917, 10-31-2007, 02:01 PM

Took these on Monday at the Forsythe Wildlife Management Area in Oceanville, NJ Near Atlantic City With my K10D and a Sigma 50-500mm Zoom. Comments and critique are always welcome.

Hi Steve,
That blue heron (? first shot) looks very unhappy at being found.
One question for you, that then probably becomes a comment, manual or auto focus?
Because to my eye the focus spot is just beyond each of the birds, with the exception of the last one, in which it is too hard to tell.
It will be interesting to hear what others observe.
There is a certainly a sense of achievement in photographing with one of these things, (I have the 135-400) and you have done it well.

marvelous pictuers, the contrast and the sharpness, compo. But I see the backfocus to.

Gues you better test this and if you have a backfocus Ask Sigma to adjust it.

There is a focus test somwere on the net.
