    No PS no tricks, straight from the camera, just resized for web:

    S2pro on tripod, 75-150mm f3.5 Series E, 1s at f11.

    Got this lens off ebay 2 days ago...what a gem.

    I'm enjoying every bit of it....
    (that's left of my exploded lens:biggrin: )

    regards to all,

    Nice shot. Glad to hear you like the lens - any sign of creep? I picked up an old Kiron 75-150 which is great - a bit soft open, but very nice down at 5.6 - 8. Have you tried the 100/2.8 E ? That's another little gem. Tiny, but sharp.
  3. Very little if any zoom creep

    Since I tend to use it on a tripod & with my hand constantly on the focus/zoom ring, it wouldn't bother me at all.

    I've made a couple of tests; like checking if the zoom/focus ring slides down when the lens is vertical; & am happy to say that till now there is no zoom creep....

    ....only a creep zooming in on me.....better hide:biggrin:
