    Just some quick backyard shots, I picked it up today for $40 at the local shop. I wish it was brighter though open shade 1/400 f/3.5 and the ISO is between 640 - 1250

    Wide open

    The contrast is low wide open, but the resolution is there, so you were able to extract a lot more with post processing. Nice.

    Built in lens hood is really nice:
