Default A Couple from the Sigma 400mm

A couple shots practicing manual focus with the Sigma 400mm. A little breezy for this sort of thing, but...

Seems to be a very good lens Gary.
Nice shots !
One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.

........the first is a bit off but the second is spot on. That lens will produce some excellent images Gary.

Hey Gary,

Always going to be hard using manual focus with a 400mm beastie, so the 2nd pic is pretty cool! Be interesting to see what the 400's like with birding . any pics ?

Yep, the 2nd is spot on. Good shooting for a manual focus lens. You will soon be able to shoot with ease.

(I could not shoot very well with a manual focus lens on the E-520, and gave up on that. But when I got the E-3 the viewfinder was so much bigger and better that I can easily do manual. If fact, with the E-3, I keep the focus on S-AF+M and touch up focus as necessary. I assume that the E-30 also has the same bigger viewfinder of the E-3 so that will help you a lot.)
