New lenses!! Lunch break test...
Posted By: vagrant10, 10-31-2008, 11:05 PM

Took the plunge on some new glass thanks to MS Live rebates and thought I'd use my lunchbreak to shoot some test pics.

Comments and criticism always welcome and desired.

Thanks Jimbo and Bramela... but I probably should have dusted the faucet first

and yes, damn brit, there is more than macros here (of which there are 2)... there's also a limited... after owning a dslr for a bit more than a year now, figured it was time to get a limited; and wow! they are wonderful! The faucet picture is taken with the 77. But the real surprise was the sigma 70 macro; lovely lens! The other macro is the Tamron 90, which is also a great lens. Yes, I'm quite pleased with these new additions... at least until the honeymoon ends when paypal bill comes due!

anyways, thanks all for commenting!

if you want to get some exif's or whatever, feel free to swing by my flickr page

The Sigma 70 is meant to be a top lens ... I already know what the Tamron 90 is like ... produces such amazing images.
