    Okey..calling it the beast is an underestimation. If that's even a word. It should be called the Fat Beast. My goodness...

    anyway, I took it out for a spin in the forest.

    How can it be sharp and smooth at the same time? I'm not sure my image is the right one to show it off with but, I like the photo so here it is:


    D300, f/5.6, 1/125, ISO 1000,

  4. Beautiful image Linda. I know you will put the lens to good use.

    BTW, that looks slippery... be careful!

    Thank you all,

    it's sharp and yes, smooth! I'll love it, once I get used to the humongous size.

    trublu, it would complement your collection quite well. ;-)
  11. Stunning!!! Very Very Stunning!!!!!!!!!
  12. Fabulous shot, it is a great lens. But now is not the time to be humble--Three cheers for the talent of the photographer behind the camera!
  13. That's beautiful Linda. I haven't been following closely, so I don't know if this is a recent acquisition or not.

    I've only heard great things about that lens. Are you using it to replace the 35-70? Or to have compatible focal lengths on 2 bodies? Curious, ain't I? :smile:

    Thank you all! Some tricks in PS really enhanced the colors. It's nice being able to shoot in a dark forest at iso1000 and the shots still comes out looking great.

    Rob, I'm replacing the 35-70 - I got this lens yesterday and...well, I shot 10 photos and I was quite baffled by it's incredible fast focus and rendering of the images. I already have a taker on the vintage lens! I'll miss it though! It's much smaller than this...cannon. I knew it was going to be big.. but....it seriously made my D300 look like a little toy. lol

    I'll stick with one body for now...
  15. Very nice, Linda! I'll bet it's stunning in the original image size, too.

    Yeah, that lens is big, as are a lot of the newer ones. I'd really like to get a 14-24, but holy cats, is that thing huge!
  16. That's great Linda. I'm lusting for a 24-70mm f/2.8 down the road as the eventual replacement for the 35-70mm. :smile:

    Can't wait to see more from you with that lens.
  17. Beautiful, Linda. You are getting quite the collection of lenses now.

    Thank you, yeah the size put me off a little but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
    I better work out harder!

    Thank you Rob - keep an eye out in the people section! That's after all why I got it.

    You would make a good pair with the 24-70!

    Thank you Terri, i'm not done yet - I'd love to get a very wide lens as well.

    But then, I'd like to move away from my 13" laptop and get a Mac desktop.

    I have an expensive taste and a flat wallet. LOL
