    Hey everyone

    I purchased this les off ebay a couple of weeks back. I wanted something under 50$ so that ruled out the more expensive beercan. Finally after a load of research i decided to get the Sigma 70-210mm f/4.5 K- II lens. It's my first push pull type lens and it just got delivered yesterday.

    7boQ35d.

    Here are a couple of early images that I shot with this. I'm hoping that my quality of images will go up as I get more used to this lens

    Love the narrow field of view at 210mm, but it really needs a tripod

    Not very sharp at full open, but at f/8 it starts giving really sharp images

    At the full zoom end it really needs a high shutter speed or a tripod. However the bokeh is amazing at all lengths

    Let me know if you have feedback or even if you have some advise for a newbie at long focal length manual lenses

    @nick its a pretty good lens. It does have its quirks and there is some damage since it's a used one. But overall its pretty good
