They say that the Bigma does better closer than at infinity. I tried this shot at around 7ft (min focus distance) 500mm to see what it can do.This is uncropped.I have others that I took today but I'm watching my first place Boston Red Sox with a red solo cup and I will post some of the results tomorrow.The Bigma continues to impress me.--charliezap

It is pretty impressive, for that focal length, that close.

Strange subject, but good shooting. One heavy macro lens though.
