Got out my old Tokina zoom lens today and tried it out at 300mm.

Tom,

Those shots look pretty sharp to me. Did you get my pm about the birding locations in san diego?

Hung,


Yes I did and thank you!

I will be taking your friends advice and we shall see what happens.

After trying out the Tokina today, I may take that too for a walk around lens when I don't want to deal with only prime lenses, since it seems pretty sharp. I have the Tamron verson only the new one and it doens't seem as sharp, so I quite possibly will just send that one to ebay.

Those look really good on this monitor (my hubby's monitor, my computer has picked up something nasty). I hadn't thought of getting a 70-300 zoom since I have the A*300, but your point about using it for a walk-around lens is a good point.

Yes it surprised me with the quality it produces (it is a 75-300) since I bought it a few years ago at a pawn shop in Vegas. It really seems to like the K10D, more so than my FA* lenses do, especially with exposure, which so far seems to be dead on.

We shall see when I get to CA tomorrow and hopefully find a white bird or two to photograph even if it is a Gull. I just want a walk around lens for times when I don't want to drag along my big bag, that doesn't weigh a ton like my FA* 80-200 2.8, but takes reasonably sharp photos.
