NB23 advised me that the real strength of the 28-70/2.8 is at its wide end, and encouraged me to test it. But try as I could, I didn't have the strength to turn that ring all the way to 28mm, so I took my test shot at 32mm. Note: just kidding; the zoom ring is as smooth as butter . OK, looks good. Time to go back to the correct end of the zoom. My next victim was the trick little truck that picks up our clippings, shot at 70mm.
