I was having a stroll yesterday together with Bengt – Weather was amazing! Ice creams melting and doves were sing.. making dove sounds. I brought the 85mm and the mighty 50-500 OS – and Bengt mostly used his 18-50mm macro and some oldish film camera from the 30s.
When there is light, there is love! The Sigma produces such stunning captures when light is great and it’s a pleasure to play around is SPP (The RAW developer that comes with the camera for those of you that don’t know). Most shots taken using the 50-500 OS as it has this nice reach and you can shoot anything without confrontations. :) With the 50-500 I’m a ninja. The above boat shot is the only one taken using the 85mm.
The old man on the portrait shot above is worth a close up look, so please look at the original which really shows how great the 50-500 OS can be. Alright, here’s the original of the seagull as well.. Admit it, you all want a lens that can do that! :D Or perhaps the camera?
Anyone having the problem that when you focus manually and take a shot, that even if you saw your subject in focus it ended up off?
Well, that’s what happens when your mirror is slightly off – my SD15 mirror has been off since I got it and today I decided to fix that (Sigma says it has to be sent to Japan for them to fix) and it turnes out that it’s actually quite simple and easy to do yourself.
But that’s a different story for another day! :D
