    More sample for the 300mm, there may be some noise in the pictures. but it's all becos of the corpping.






    Please do comment on the photo, i'm still a noob here. And i do need good advise from you pros to improve my skill.

    Please do not be mean to me. Thank you so much

    I have a 70-300mm too but fr sigma. In terms of performance and sharpness, I believe that they're pretty much the same. Ur cam ve to be really still when u fire, which applies to all teles. I suggest that u keep as still as possible from af-ing to firing to ensure that u ve the right focus (blur could also resulted from front or back focusing due to body swaying after AF..very much like af-lock and recompose). I.e. it'll be best that u fire immediately once u've af lock. although i don't really like the sharpness from this lens (after using primes), but it does give ok-sharp pics if u feel particularly strong... nonetheless, it's my only viable alternative for 70-200mm.

    I was feeling particularly strong that day...lol

    Using SPEEDFACTORY info (Printed as proved) showing $232, I went to SLR yesterday to but the Tammy but they do not have stock, they are very helpful people there to the exxtend of calling a few shops to check for availiability (Non have stock for Warranty set). I confirm again on the price and was quoted $232 yesterday.

    Subsequency, I went to OP which I have called a day before and I am aware they have the stock but was told on the phone that his price was 200+ , upon arrival and look for the guy who answer my call and he took a tammy out for me. Before I test, asked for the price and quoted me $260.
    I shown him my printed price $232 and told him that the price I got 2 hrs ago was $232 and he agreed and sold it to me.

    This info where I think is good to share among us and for those looking for TAMMY can now go to OP where he still have stock now.

    Thanks SPeedfactory.
