Trying out the new glass!

In very difficult lighting conditions due to the sun being too bright for once I gave the new lens a going over.

Nice and crisp Rich!

Steve Hinton said...

Shame about the strong light! Not bad for a hairdressers lens!

Richard G. Smith said...

Ha Ha - how's yer back!!

Jeff said...

Unless I'm mistaken I think there's a slight "back-focusing" issue and you may want to tweak the micro-adjustment setting a tad.

Richard G. Smith said...

Quite possible as settings are for the DO - I haven't checked it out - I shall start by going back to zero

Jeff said...

The phrase "hook,line and sinker" springs to mind !!
1-0,1-0,1-0,1-0 !!!
Nowt wrong with it as far as I can see,looks like a crackin' investment although I'll lug my 500mm around as long as I can and then join the "hairdressers" gang !!
