    Fall may have just come but today was a sunny and warm day so before the weather gets colder we took Andrew to play at the park. Took a few photos...

    All shot with the Minolta MD 70-210 f/4.5-5.6 except the last one that was shot with the MD 35mm f/2.8

    Especially grand kids. When you get tired of them you can send them home to their parents. ;)

    Nice shots Nick, you're building memories. :)

    Great stuff. You're pretty handy with that large lens.

    LOL :p

    Cheers Jim

    Thanks Dave

    Appreciated ;)
    Not a large lens per say (well, compared with the MD 70-210 f/4 its relatively small-ish) ;)

    Speaking of this lens (MD 70-210 ƒ/4.5-5.6), I'm quite satisfied with it for what it is (a zoom lens).
    I like the fact that its small and lightweight, gives nice colours, pretty good @ f/8-f/11
    Definately not a lens for low light conditions and the biggest issue I have with it is that its not as easy to nail focus as the MD 50mm or MD 35-70 for example. Doesn't peak so good as those lenses thus I'm getting less "keeper" shots (out of focus).
