With some care, this lens is capable of producing great pictures:
- A good example of a creepy moon
- Butterfly, to show off the "macro" capability.
- Seaport Belle from Rowe's Wharf. An example where the lens was zoomed out to 300mm and colors were somewhat drab, but Photoshop brought them out.
I have this lens up on eBay, as I've upgraded my lenses since I got this one. A result of being bitten by the photography bug is the rabid desire for professional-quality gear (read, lots of $$$money$$$), and this particular lens is not professional-quality.
Update: This lens has been SOLD 4/29/2006!
