An trip out with the k30 and old bigma 50-500.

bought myself a bigma on ebay and went out for a walk in my local parklands to test it out for the first time. It was overcast most of the day, but got a little bit of sunlight. AND these were all handheld, so if i wasnt lazy and actually brought a tripod next time they could be better but all in all im pretty happy with how the lens performs, especially for the price i got it at! not the greatest and latest, but acceptable when its just a hobby!

reaaaally overcast for this one

and this one is my favorite

Cool!, Im tossing up between a Bigma and a Q+Adapter+DFA100 Macro, these look great.
The bokeh in the first two is a little busy but can be managed.
