Safely Moored

By KingArthur
Trying out my new Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro lens -

Yesterday evening I walked down to the nearby cove used by local fishermen in St Paul's Bay eager to try out my new Sigma 105mm Macro Lens. Being my first prime macro lens, I wished to confirm whether all the hype and the raving reviews this lens has reputably earned were true or otherwise. I chose the mooring on this boat as my subject, opting to shoot at the lens's widest aperture (f/2.8) to scrutinize its sharpness and resolution. I was quite pleased with the first few results the lens delivered and, considering that this image is a good 45% crop of the original frame, the Sigma 105mm f/2.8 Macro Lens is definitely going to be one of my favourite lenses out in the field. I hope you find the shot to your liking, viewing large should look better.

Take care and stay all safe,
Joe Smile
