Using the Sigma 10-20 f3.5 for some shots at the “Alte Liebe” on my D2x. Mainly to test the lens and see how the zoom performs.

Sigma 10-20mm f3.5 EX DC HSM
Recently bought a Sigma 10-20f3.5 ultra-wide for DX. Together with my Sigma 30f1.4 this would give a light combination for walking trips in cities and also for landscape shots using the D7200. The 30f1.4 proves absolutely fantastic sharpness on DX but would need company for wide angles. This one entry is purely focussing on the […]
Around the harbor
Trying the D7200 and Sigma 30f1.4 Art for city- and landscape shots during a short walk in the harbor area.
Birds in the backyard 2016
Haven’t done bird shooting in my backyard for quite some time. Today I took the chance to do some shots at the feeder place.
Long-lens only packing
Since some time I am looking for a backpack that allows me to transport my long lenses with attached camera. Not really designed for flying but to have at least 2 long lenses with camera with me in a single bag. Suggestions from discussion forum members were on several backpacks allowing to do so but […]
Nikkor 500mm f/4.0 IF ED AF-S

However, the Sigma 150-600 S performs still at a high level but no chance compared to the prime lens. Using the lens without converter delivers outstanding results […]
Cuxhaven – Other local seafowl
Second try with the Nikkor 500f4, this time using the D7200. Was lucky to get some close Oystercatchers as they are normally quite shy. The lens does not perform as great as with the D4, but that’s not a surprise. Some quality trade-off is because of the smaller pixel-pitch of the D7200 but some is […]
Cuxhaven – Sandpipers
Desperately waiting to get a chance to try out the recently bought AF-S 500f4 lens. The weather today morning was nice and 2 hours left before high tide, so I went to Kugelbake and looking for some Sandpipers there. Fortunately not too many people were around and I was lucky to get some good shots. […]
