Well, my Sigma APO 70-300mm came in today... And wow, this thing is much bigger than I had imagined... here's a shot of it on the K10.

(Taken with my mother-in-law's dirt cheap P&S, TheAWB on that camerais WAYYYY off, the gold ring at the end of the lensis actually red, but anyway...)

You'll forget all about how big it is as soon as you see some of the results...

It doesn't bother me... I was just suprised... I, for some reason, was expecting it to be about the same size as my Sigma 100-300... I like the extra weight anyway... It balances well with the K10!

I guess it's time for another ZOO trip

Believe me, once you have taken it to the zoo, you will be addicted to it!

Today's my day off, so I fixed the settings and went back outside with this thing...

Here's one of my corner lens on my car... Just playing with the Macro part of this lens...
