Lens: Sigma 70-300mm APO DG Macro Camera: K-50 Photo Location: Idaho ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/2000s Aperture: F9

I was out one morning with my new-to-me Sigma 70-300mm APO DG Macro lens, shooting some 1:2 macro shots in my neighbor, Charlotte's yard to see what kind of sharpness I could achieve with it and I was very pleased with the extreme detail in the spider web. I don't know how much more sharpness I could expect from this "cheap" lens! Due to some hand tremors from a brain injury a while back, I always shoot with a monopod, so I'm sure that had a lot to do with the sharpness.

I believe the lens with the K-50 has served you well in this instance. Very sharp, colorful with an awesome background. I would like to say that you did an excellent job in getting that Sigma lens.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks for the input, Tony. My K-50 has been a remarkable camera. I had the aperture problem with one of my K-30's, but so far so good with the others. And yes, that Sigma lens is a KILLER!
