Default Two More From the New Toy!

Took these today with the Sigma 300 2.8 to check how it works with moving birds and they didn't come out too bad.

Not to bad at all, that Sigma will be a good toy.

#1 shows very fine feather details, #2 is a very fine picture also artistically, very nice composition. You realize how small she is!

great shot's Tom,

I think I'll have to go to a aviary to try a shot of those beautiful birds.

Very nice! Looks like the lens is really sharp wide open, makes my mouth water!

Tom,

I like the shots a lot. The faster lens makes it easier to get shutter speed up and slow down the wing motion. Looks like you will get a lot of enjoyment out of that lens.

I agree with all the earlier comments. Great shots and a very nice lens. Definitely makes me envious.
