testing another new lens (just 1 duck pic)
Posted By: little laker, 05-05-2007, 03:26 PM

I'm just testing my new (to me) Sigma 135-400 APO

The weather's still perfect, so I might be adding some eagle pic's later

Duck.. duck.. GOOSE!

Canada Geese these are

You liking that lens so far? I've convinced myself to hold out for a long range 2.8 constant zoom. Too bad the only one anyone can even hope of getting without mortgaging their life is the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8

So far I love it Artyste.

I might be able to get you one of these bad boys for around $500.00 plus taxes brand new

I'll find out if there's 1 available on Monday

Sorry i just looked at the macro that I tried with it and what can I say... I'm in love with the bokeh
What do you think of it?


It doesn't have a macro setting, but all the info is still intact if you care to see what I did.

I'm not in the market right now...

I just dropped almost $600 on equipment 2 weeks ago, so it'll be a couple of months before I think about getting anything again.

Thanks for the thought though

Yes, the owner of the local camera store in Grand Forks, BC is trying his best to get it in. They're discontinued, but still have the full warranty

I'll let you know on Monday.

it's the Sigma 135-400 APO

Just a warning about them, they're heavy lenses

My newest post (don't watch me while I eat) was shot with the same lens as well
