Think positive. By buying this lens, it's like getting a gym membership for free.

Bahh! it's certainly not worst (in term of handling) than the FA*250-600mm and a good sturdy tripod... I did not needed a gym membership... so far...

Seems like this thread has no interest ... maybe it is because it was moved to "Lens Club", a section of this forum not often visited and not showing under the latest posts/threads section(s).

Personally, I have no images to post because .... I still don't have that lens.
However, I thought that those who do own the lens already would be keen on posting here.

If someone has also the bigma 50-500 I would like to see how these lenses compare at the long end not only at picture quality, but also what's their difference in magnification! It is said that the bigma is not reaching 500mm but actually is quite shorter, so this comparison would be very interesting!

A few shots from Tuesday. The light was not very good because it was an overcast day. I had to use fairly high ISO most of the time. All shots are handheld. Most of them are cropped to some extent.

150mm, F/8, 1/400s, ISO100 (the amount of detail in the forest below the tower is amazing in the original file)


450mm, F/8, 1/1000s, ISO500


450mm, F/6.3, 1/800s, ISO 2000


150mm, F/6.3, 1/250, ISO 400


This one is with the 1.4x TC (handheld)
630mm, F/10, 1/1000s, ISO 640


450mm, F/6.3, 1/1000s, ISO 800


290mm, F/6.3, 1/800s, ISO 800


380mm, F/6.3, 1/800s, ISO 5000


450mm, F/6.3, 1/800s, ISO 5000


450mm, F/6.3, 1/400s, ISO 2000
