Amazing sharpness, a true testament to the capabilities of this lens. I was extremely reluctant to part with it today. Rented it for $40 from Camera Rental, and used it to shoot at 3 seperate events in the span of 3 days. In that respect, I’d have to say that my money was well-spent. This shot was taken at Fisher Street, located behind Riverside Point. The wank pipe/vacuum cleaner was mounted on a gripped 50D which was set to aperture priority. Settings used were ISO 100, f5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/500 shot at 400mm. A reflector of a silver-colored surface was used. Marvelous bokeh, will rent this again for future sports shoots. I managed to get a shot of a hummingbird too.
Okay, I will be heading down to the License 2 Play event tomorrow(or rather, later) to whack some good deals, and to get some shots of cute promoters. See you there.
