Lens: Sigma 70-300 DC Macro Camera: K-30 Photo Location: Phu Cuong Catheral, Binh Duong, Viet Nam ISO: 640 Shutter Speed: 1/160s Aperture: F5.6

This lens does not have the best sharpness or nice bokeh, but for the cost at 100$, you barely cannot find any telephoto else with a decent IQ and AF. A nice lens.

I borrowed it from a friend of mine because I do not have any telephoto lens. And this had encouraged me to get a telephoto lens myself, for taking proper portrait photos.

There's nothing wrong with the sigma 70-300 or 75-300 zooms that I've ever noticed. My 75-300 DL is literally my second favorite right behind my 28mm smc-m prime. The AF is a little on the slow side for the older zooms like mine, which is why I rely more on manual focus. The sigma 70-300 and 75-300 are still probably the best "bang for your buck" budget zooms (used, not sure about new pricing) though. Your image turned out rather well, especially the colors... they just seem to pop in contrast to the background. Were you shooting handheld, or with a tripod/monopod? Nice model as well.

Thanks ^_^! It's Christmas and we would like to wear nice costume to attend the mass. And for Vietnamese people, aodai is one of the suitable choices

I were shooting handheld with it. I really don't prefer tripod/monopod when it comes to use telephoto lens event for heavy ones like Sigma 70-200/2.8 OS HSM cause they kinda slow me down
