It’s good to be outdoors and I could actually start to believe that Winter is behind us……you know it will rain, or snow, or something now I’ve said that!
Other than the weather, not a lot else changes in Deadville day to day. Its a nice little village and walking along with the dogs I can hear the littleys playing in the school yard (and it is a yard, I’m not being twee).
I took along The Rainmaker, although I couldn’t actually fit it in my bag whilst attached to the camera, so after what seemed like a Krypton Factor effort to squeeze it all in, we were off……five minutes down the road and we were there. I did mention it was a LITTLE village didn’t I?
Some play time in the teeny park, a little run around the field for the dogs and I managed to get a few shots with the arnie sized combo.
I didn’t actually find it too unwieldy, and getting back to check out the images I find that I have a fair number of keepers. Its pretty sharp throughout the range, and although most lenses hit their sweet spot stopped down a little, I really only shoot at wide open apertures, F4 in this case.
Doesn’t sound super fast, but at 300mm there will be no complaints concerning shallow DOF.
Will I keep it? Probably. Its a good focal range to have and, unless the much discussed death of A mount actually occurs, I could sell it in a year or so and it wouldn’t have cost me a thing.
