My kids and some of the neighborhood kids were playing king of the raft. +1 exposure. f8 is as wide as this lens will go. Definately not a spectacular lens but decent for the price.

Hope that helps,
Tim

Seems to be a fairly good lens for sharpness. I am tempted to call upon Roy's "services" to get one sent over here, hehehe.

I would say that those pict (part. 1st & 2nd) were wasted opportunity for a great shot . They are all soft if not underexposed. Given your skill as shown in your other pict, you would have been better off with other lens. Was it mirror lens? Maybe F8 instead of F11 would have been better.

Hi Allison,
These are the shots I promised to take with the 500mm long lens. You should probably interpret these as the minimum the lens is capable of. While I use manual focusing on some of my other lenses I kind of rely on the confirmation light and beep. This camera did not provide any feedback with this lens. Also, I was handholding this lens and found it quite difficult to hold steady, in part, I think, because it is so light for its length. I do not believe SR was working as I did not tell the camera what focal length the lens was.

One other thing I noted with this lens is that the controls are mounted upside down! When on the camera, the guide numbers are underneath. I don't know if all of them are this way or if mine slipped through quality control.

First shot is an anhinga, resized but otherwise untouched. Exif should be present in all of these. I had the lens set to f/11.

My take on it, thus far, is that it will be a fun lens to play and it was worth the little money I paid for it. If I get more serious about long telephoto, though, I am sure I will want to upgrade it.

Hope that helps,
Tim

Hi Daniel,
First, thanks for the praise, I don't know that I have really aquired any skill yet butit was still nice to hear. Please understand, I am not bragging on this lens or any of the photographs taken with it. I picked it up for $50 used to play with. It is, at best, of mediocre quality. The only reason I posted these was because Allison had expressed an interest in how well one of these would work for her and I had one on hand. I forgot to state it, but the second series of shots were in f8 (I had thought I was in f8 the first time but with the controls underneath I didnot notice my error). I am sure a better quality long zoom or prime is in my future. BTW, it is not a mirror lens but is branded by the same suspects who hawk the low price mirror lenses too.

Thank you again, I have seen your posts and I am glad you think I have potential.

Thanks,
Tim
