I really like this lens. Just thought I'd take some different shots with it. All are handheld ISO 800 with k20d on an overcast day. Thanks for looking

Exceptionally sharp and excellent color and superb control of DoF. Amazing how a hose sprayer nozzle can look so beautiful! Did you perform much post processing? Either way, it is quite an endorsement for the Bigma!

Very nice shots! Gets me thinking that the Bigma in fond terms. My other half won't thank you for that, though...

Very nicely done. Extremely sharp! Welcome to the Bigma Owners Club! LOL The Bigma spends more time on my K10D than any other lens right now! And as you've found it soes closeups very well!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments.

Jay - I did do a little PP (mainly the levels) -- I shot these in JPEG.

Dawg -- you were my inspiration to buy the Bigma -- thanks (I think)

Mtngal -- I'm enjoying your search for silhouettes plus, when I was deciding on what lens to buy for this new hobby, your pictures convinced me to get the 50-135 and the 12-24 -- so I owe you one or two.

As a newcomer -- this is a great community.

Very sharp shots, I am sure I would be as pleased with that lens as you seem to be.

LOL! I guess that's fair enough. Though I think the Bigma will have to wait until retirement, otherwise I'd never have a chance to use it much.

It amazes me that folks only look at the 500mm in the Bigmas lens description and forget the 50mm and every zoom setting all the way to 500mm! That lens is super sharp and nice at almost all zoom ranges... just wish it went down to 17mm and we would only need one lens! LOL
