In May I added a pre-owned 70-300mm lens to my collection. Here are the first shots I took in our backyard at 300mm at the closest focusing distance to test it out. Pretty good quality.

I agree Jack. Nice metal sculpture. I think this new lens has good sharpness at its weakest point. Plus it has excellent smooth bokeh.

Nice. Good shot. Not bad. I like the composition and the art itself. It is very unique.

Here's another photo of Chives I took in our yard at 300mm when I first got it 3 weeks ago. And a shot of a Skink w/ mating colors I took 2 wks go.
They were shot at 300mm at closest focusing distance. This is the weakest point of the lens and still pretty good detail.
We're going to rural Michigan in 3 weeks and how to have many opportunities to use it.

This 70-300 lens' creamy smooth bokeh continues to amaze me. I'd have to try some candid portraits soon.
