Coningsby Enthusiasts Day 15th June 2012

Postby Ben Montgomery on Fri 15 Jun 2012, 10:37 pm

Just the one for now, which I'm quite proud of. It was my first outing with my new Sigma 120-300 F/2.8 OS and Canon EF 1.4x III, so it was more a test day than anything else!

Image

I'll add more when they are edited - the Tornado Role Demo was also rather good (albeit with only one Tornado, the other started the display and vanished - presumably with a technical issue).

I've noticed that hosting this image on my site seems to introduce quite a lot of compression, so I'll try and get that sorted at some point too.

Now that's what i call an aviation photograph, one of the best i've seen, and i 'aint no youngster.

Well done that man...

Interesting aside, you don't seem to have any compatability issues with the Sigma lens paired with a Canon converter.

regards Neville..

Many thanks for your kind words everyone, it's greatly appreciated! :smile:

Neville - nope, no compatibility issues. Autofocus is still very fast and accurate, I don't really see any quality issues (apart from tiny amounts of Chromatic Aberration in the corners on high contrast photos), and the sharpness is still better than my 100-400 I think.
