The new museum opened and went for a look, it was pretty nice. The first one is the statue of Leonidas that was found underground that was skulptured the time King Leonidas was still alive 2500 years ago WOW. And the 2nd picture is of Goddess Athena that was also skulptured back then.

And this one is a stone with ancient greek writing, the alphabet is the same as now but the way they prounonced is way different i could only pick up a few words, and the last one is arrows that were found at Thermopylae the time 300 Spartans went to hold off the Persions at 480B.C.

Good clear shots nice colour, Interesting subjects, no iso on the Iexif,

though at 1/6" exposure I would think it was pretty high, 400 maybe

or higher.

Yes very good the IS seems to be doing the job ok. I checked the blur factor on them

with focus magic there was just one pixel blur in most of themand a two pixel blur
