Recieved this yesterday, but my sensor was too dirty to have a good test. So after getting the Giottos rocket from CP, my sensor is finally clean

Anyway, heres a couple of good test shot. It was cloudy outside, so I wasn't able to get a good shutter speed. All shots are handheld.

The shots look OOF. You could try refocusing a taking a few more shots, if object remains stationary. Focusing on a bright day would be easier.

I got it focus (the red flashing beeping there), but deal to shutter speed 1/30-1/90, it hard to get it right:bsmilie: My hands still not used to its weight yet :bsmilie:

Still waiting for the 15th day, hope the sky will be clear then lol

Lens was priced at US$75 but I best offer US$65 and got it;) But since the seller wants to send by express, I ended up paying US$35 for shipping:bsmilie:

Looks quite okay for handheld shots w/ that kind of focal length. But better do some test w/ a sturdy tripod and see what you can get from this lens. For MF tele lens, better use a tripod to get better results.

looks pretty sharp to me. :)
I think with 10mp, 100% crop always looks a bit soft. (or maybe all my shots were out of focus :) )
