Sigma 170-500mm Samples

IQ Test



I only had an hour before leaving town and grabbed a few shots before leaving. What do you think about the IQ? No PP other than resizing.

Hi Jeff,

I presume these were taken handheld? On my monitor, the IQ looks quite respectable. What camera? Cheers, Dan

Nikon D50

Exposure Time = 1/1000"

F Number = F8

Exposure Program = Aperture priority

Exposure Bias Value = ±0EV

Max Aperture Value = F6.28

Metering Mode = Pattern

Light Source = Fine weather

Flash = Off

Focal Length = 500mm

I tried handheld the first2 day with less than stellar results. At 500mm and less than, and at 1/1000[suP]th[/suP] stutter speed IQ was weak. These were taken with a monopod.

Dan, you may find this free program helpful for finding EXIF info from images posted on the internet. Just right click on the image and all the EXIF is displayed.
