#17540 Sigma 150-500mm issues

Posted by Moester1955 on 15 March 2014 - 03:35 AM

Test shots with the lens today from the air port. (Was an overcast day)


Without UV Filter!!


Camera used: D800E


Settings: For the first picture:  f/8 -  1/2000 -  ISO 2500 -  500mm


These photos have been resized so if you try and zoom in close to the picture it will not be clear.


Surprisingly all pictures taken were sharp WITHOUT the UV Filter, not sure if it was the UV Filter or the firm ware update on the camera. You will notice that there is a white HALO around the second photo, not sure if it is the lens, or lens shade, and or camera???


Fourth Pic is a cropped image from the third image to show you that when zoomed into the photo you can read the small letters on the plane with no blur.  :)


Over all I was impressed with the lens today and I know the photos will get better with favorable conditions. Next test will be with out the lens shade and when it is clear and sunny. ALSO WITH LOWER ISO!!

What camera are you using?

What camera are you using? I seen it...too early in the morning :)

#16984 Hello from Ontario

Posted by Moester1955 on 04 March 2014 - 09:19 AM

Hello everyone. I'm an experienced bird photographer from a small town east of Toronto.

I'm looking forward to sharing some of my work and some advice for those of you who are into wildlife photography and are looking for experienced advice on mid to high end gear and technique.
I'm a Nikon man that has nothing against those of you who prefer a different brand.

Hi and welcome. I just recently changed over to a Nikon system and like it very much, definitely a change from my previous Sony system. I do some wildlife photography as well, still with the Sony system using a Tamron 200-500mm on a Sony A700. Definitely learning a lot about birds,etc. Will be looking forward to seeing some of your work and advice. :-)

Good news for Nikon D600 owners


#14587 Hello from Nova Scotia, Canada

I just switched systems. Two short weeks ago I became a proud Nikon owner. I switched from a Sony system, definitely no regrets so far. I got the Nikon d610 and really like it.
