Here are various miscellaneous pics that I had left over.

The sigma 70-300 apo dg actually gives very nice candid portraits. You have plenty of distance so as to not attract attention from the subject. Also it does a great job isolating the subject from the background. Here is my friend Tom admiring the beauty of Back Bay. This was shot at a focal length of 300mm. Pretty sharp considering it's at the max end.


These cyclist were jamming down the path when I quickly snapped a shot of them. My lens missed the guy in front but kept the others in decent focus.



I titled this photo "Love at first sight."

Very nice pics. Can you post some of the shutter/aperture settings and what camera you have?

Raw? or jpeg?

Great shots again, is that your Bulldog? You have much steadier hands than me.

PS: Thanks for the teleconvertors link.

Hi,

Glad you are having fun with the lens. This my second 70-300 Sigma. The first was on my Canon. Had to have one when I switched to Pentax.

Thanks. No that dog belonged to someone else. A couple of things that I do inorder to help steady the camera are as follows. I try to keep my elbows tucked in and braced against my torso. This way I'm bracing the camera with my whole body instead of just my arms. Sometimes if I am following a moving subject, I will get down on one knee. That helps me steady my upper body movement as well.
