Your initial shots look good, and don't worry about the 75-300, it will give you all the sharp pictures you want. Just try to avoid shooting it wide open, especially at the long end.
Thanks, I'm loving it so far. My first outing with the 75-300 was fine. Feeling better but we have rain (very abnormal for us, lol), and I have to study for a math test on wednesday...but did manage to take a couple shots of some kittens and my daughter today and I liked the results

stop down to f9-11 and the lens should sharpen up nicely. If you are going with shallow dof effect. And need 5.6-6.3 your shots will be a bit soft, but you can sharpen them up in PP.

As a matter of fact, she'll officially be two on the 13th of this month, but we're celebrating on Saturday.

Thanks

Yeah, you never know what a kid's gonna do til you point a camera at them! Bella knows what's happening, she just acts natural and enjoys seeing the pictures later...

Fantastic pics Robert,
The lighting and atmosphere are brilliant. I,m really amazed at how clear they are with just the light from the gadget. ISO 800 and 1/8 of a sec. you must have real steady hands.
Really lovely pics.
Mark

Thanks a bunch, Mark! The lens is a very good one,(not real expensive), which helps helps a lot with the clarity. The Sony bodies all have "super steady shot" image stabilization which allows for three or four stops of exposure. My hands are not as steady as they used to be, so the sss really helps. Luck also plays a part. LOL
