The Bigma does it all-even macro like shots.
Lens: Bigma Camera: K5 Photo Location: Saugus Ma. 
Posted By: charliezap, 07-23-2013, 07:29 AM

Whether it's taking shots of the moon's craters from a 1/4 million miles away or dragonflys from 4-5 ft. this lens is always surprising me when coupled to my K5.It's easy when the dragonfly perches for at least 15 minutes and watches you take his picture.I guess he loves the Bigma. --charliezap

Great lens/camera combo and a photographer that knows how to use them.

Really impressive, what a lens! The moonshot is great, and I like the posterized dragon fly too.

Good thing being retired is giving me the opportunity and time to try different aspects of the camera's potential. --charliezap
