This might help sawdust



It's a cracking lens for the price. Apparently the are good and bad copies of it, bad copies being soft over 200mm but no problems with mine, ive taken some cracking shots at 300mm.

Anyway hope you have fun with it.

Sawdust: Can you PM me with a link to some of your results when you take some photos with it? I am currently considering this setup and take every opportunity to take a look at any samples.

Thanks,

Jack M
