    Red face A picture is worth ... quite a bit, it seems

    Yes, Don's camera with a new passenger ...

    so... yes, Virginia, you can add this one to the gear list ...
    Got a two-year, anti-drop on it, too. It weighs more than you think, believe me (35 ounces! That's more than the Tokina 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6).

    Respectability is pricey.

    These two images straight from the A700, with resize and sRGB convert.

    You can probably tell the DOF on this a little too shallow (man, what a problem, huh?) I was focused on his wingside .. and his face was just far enough out of the focal plane to look a tad bit fuzzy. I actually need to close it down to 2.5 or 2.8 (chuckle) ... How many lenses can you say that about?

    I think I have Nick-prime-itus! My, my ... won't CW be surprised? Gotta start sometime, I guess. I suspect this is going to be pretty "hot glass" in the coming year. 85mm's look kind of teeny on Full Frames.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
