it’s picture time

Been a while since I posted any photos. This picture is courtesy of the Minolta 100mm f/2.8 macro D, which is the highest-quality lens I’ve picked up so far. You can see that the lens is very sharp. The only downside is that it’s not particularly fast at focusing and tends to hunt arbitrarily, although the lens also has focus limit to alleviate that.

Even if the AF isn’t really fast, the 100mm doesn’t do too bad for sports photography – although it would be nicer to be further away from flying sand.

Pictures taken outside the Lincoln Park Zoo and North Ave. beach, respectively.
