Just been to a Laurie Campbell wildlife photography workshop in Fife today and took over 300 images using my Sigma 150-500mm zoom. The OS system started to get on my wick a bit with it's purring and spluttering so I turned it off and left it off.
Despite that, I have over 300 pin-sharp images at all focal lengths from 150mm to 500mm. It has really reinforced my view that this is one fantastic lens for the money. (including hand-held at only 1/640 sec without OS)

Let's be seeing 'em
Yes, post a few.
As I think you know, Straycat, I deleted all my gallery images from EPZ after I had a photograph disqualified from a national competition "because it had been previously published on an online magazine". I still don't know if it was EPZ or PhotoRadar but I am now reluctant to take the risk with images that I might wish to enter in competitions in future.
Just post your bad ones then.
Or post them to flickr/photobucket and link them here?

Don't think that's allowed?
Nothing stops him putting a link in his profile to a filckr/photobucket/blog/personal website with his stuff on it
Yes, I seem to remember something about that now you mention it. Competitions are out of my league.

OK - Here is one that would certainly not be good enough to use as a competition entry. But that, of course, also means that it is not a particularly good example of the lens.
For the record: 1/500sec at f/7.1. ISO 1600. 250mm (150-500mm)
Is this correct any competition entries cannot be on the website ???
I think there is some confusion about the word and meaning of published. my interpretation (right or wrong) is previously published in a magazine for reward in a competition would preclude you from entering said photo in another competition unless the rules allowed it.
Publishing on the web in a non competitive manner and for no reward would not.
Quote: (right or wrong)
Wrong I regret to say.
Published means just that - made available in a form that the public can see.
However competition rules do differ. Some forbid entries that have been published in any form. Others, as you suggest, restrict that prohibition to images that have been entered in other competitions.
