Bought myself a Christmas present this year. Worked like a dog for 2 months, so decided to splurge.

Took the Bigma out for a walk yesterday. Probably stupid to do so, as it was so dull, but wanted to see what it could do. I wouldn't recommend using this lens on dull days, but with some sun, it's easy to see it can perform. I only managed one shot below ISO 1600.

All photos were handheld. Exif is there if you want to see it All shots at 1/500 with auto iso set up to 3200....cheers...Don

All great poses - I especially like No. 2. Most are a bit on the soft side, but given the conditions quite good, not showing as much noise as one would expect at those high ISOs. Congrats on the lens - you are a steadier man than I. How much cropping was there? Were you too far away to use flash?

Those are great Don, especially for hand held shots.

Thanks penolta. NR was used on all of these, and the crops varied from about 50% to 75%. I always shoot handheld. Don't like tripods or monopods when I'm hiking about. No flash. I'm always thinking of try out a better beamer, but I'd have to buy a flash unit first, and so far that hasn't happened...Don
