    Not the sharpest lens in the world, but decent for the price I paid. The picture attached is a 100% crop with some adjustments made to the RAW file (including some sharpening .. may add on some unmodified shots later) before spitting out the jpg. Shot at 300mm, f8, 320ISO, 1/640 shutter speed.

    Much more important for my purposes is video. [ame=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZe4TG1OiS0]100-300test.AVI - YouTube[/ame] .. decent results. Better still before being compressed by youtube.

    Cheers,
    Dave

    These doves are great (informal) lens test subjects - and only a few steps from my back door. The Vivitar does pretty well and was inexpensive. Should be good in Spring for flowers and birds.
