Lunch time photo
Posted By: netuser, 11-19-2008, 10:21 AM

On my lunch time, today, I took this picture as a test on my new (got it on ebay) Paragon 500mm.

It was at 1/125, iso100 and f8 (without tripod)

DIRECT LINK to untouch photo is HERE

And the 100% crop of the seagul is here
Seagul is cropped at 100%.

I'd be interested to see a tripod-mounted image before I judge a lens' sharpness at 750mm and 1/125s. I don't even know what I'd do with a lens that long, but I'm sure it can do a lot.

I agree that it would be best to evaluate a tripod shot. The purple fringing will not go away, but PF is a fact of life with even some of the expensive glass...
