    New Sigma 70-300 Macro

    The wife decided I needed a 70-300 and bought me one. Hope the results will not be to bad.
    Shot this one in Makro mode. It seems to be reasonably sharp.

    Sigma makes several different 70-300 lenses and I am not sure which one you have but the result seems fine. Can you give advice on getting a wife to buy photographic gear for their husband, I am sure you will have an eager lot of readers.

    Thanks Paul.
    It is the "cheap" one. No APO and no OS. Getting the wife to buy equipment is easy - make her look better in shots you take of her.
    There is of cause another way - make her worry about what you do in your spare time and she will buy you things to keep you busy, knowing what you are doing.
    My wife is wonderful, she likes my photography.

    Personally, I have been trying to coerce my significant other by allowing her to play with my kit. Hopefully, she will realize that it is woefully inadequate without the 70-200 VRII .

    Thanks for the comment:
    Mark I do not see white dots, those are yellow pollen dots.
    Good luck Randy, is there any of us with a kit that is not woefully inadequate in some way? We keep filling "gaps".
