With the improving weather took the opportunity to try out my new toy. ... Jack

PS. ... Also helped me practice my monopod technique, which is very rusty.







I'm well pleased with this one

Beautiful shots Jack. How do you like it and what do you not like about it?

Hi Dawg, well its a keeper for sure, only niggle at the moment is that focus rotation is opposite to other lenses I have, but no doubt I'll get used to that. I must try some shots wide open at Max zoom see how it performs then. Thanks for your comments ... Jack.

Looks like your technique isn't too rusty afterall....



Good shots.



I sympathise with the opposite rotation though, I have had a couple like that. So confusing when you first put them on.

nice images, I especially like the 2nd one, shows the qualities of the lens best...

The white balance seems a bit off though...unless that was the point...

Hi Dal, I think I have others that have the same problem, I think it's just opposite to the lenses I use more regularly. I hadn't used a monopod for a while, but I suppose it's like riding a bike. LOL ... was testing a70 - 300mm a few days ago,I certainly notice that use of a longer lens requires that you pay more attention to technique. Glad you like the pics, I'm very pleased with results. ... Jack

Tom, thanks for your comments, and you've set me thinking ... a previous point and shoot digital I had, still have, used to revert back to factory presets each time it was switched off, one of which was auto WB ... it was a PITA ... You've just reminded me that I don't know how the 100D behaves ... if it retains WB settings it should have been OK today, as I used it on daylight setting yesterday.. I must admit I didn't check ... Jack.

Edit ... just had a look, it does retain previous settings so WB should be OK Tom.

Spot on there Roy !, one of the best deals I ever made ... I'm thinking. I did check the lens weight BTW, and that proved conclusively that it's a Tokina which makes it a type 2. ... Jack
