Just dumb test shots

I took delivery of my much desired Sigma EX 70-200/2.8 HSM DG Macro II this morning. Here are just a bunch of dumb shots I snapped during the day. They’re not meant to show or prove anything, but just to give an idea of the lens’ output in real life conditions.

MarlaNov13-32My living room being extremely dim, 2.8 requires flash

TestSig70-200-01Ultra sharp, ultra smooth, that’s the Sigma EX 2.8 signature

CannelleNov13-07Beautiful contrast and saturation

CropCannelleSig-01… here’s a 100%, UNPROCESSED crop of a 24MP file

MarlaNov13-28At 70-200 focal range, it’s obviously NOT an indoor lens on APS-C

Lampe-02But maybe on the FF A7…

The lens will get a MUCH better workout tomorrow with horse riders outdoor ! As usual… stay tuned 😉

  1. Love the lamp shot. How tidy your house looks in comparison to mine! Honestly, the lens’s output is superb, even indoors its useable. Outdoors its gonna shine, shine, shine. 😉

    Tidy ?? You must be kidding, lol. But then you have 5 kids and a crazy puppy, I have only one girl and a 6 yr old lapdog… Makes a world of difference 😉
