Opal you live in an interesting place to photograph.

Nice photos as well. Very Happy


Thanks,

unfortunately, many people making more window shoppings, instead looking upwards, seeing the nice architecture of old and new buildings.

Slowly, this wonderful 30 year old zoom lens is going on retirement, but I will keep it, since I am using now with a great joy, the new SONY G FE 4/70-200mm on my Sony A7!

Yesterday, we went to the botanical garden of Leuven, the oldest one in Belgium, created in 1738 !!!
Took my E-M1 and just this Soligor zoom ... and came back, quite surprised once again, about the quality of this zoom froma modest manufacturer ...







I for one am very pleased with this one-lens-solution for my E-M1

C U,
Rafael

My SOLIGOR 60 - 300mm which I haved bought years ago for my CONTAX cameras, and I am still very pleased with it!

The attached images I have shot now hand held on my SONY A6000 at f/8, which give me an 90 - 450mm (!) impressive range!

Hello Opal.

Were the last photos taken at 300mm or 60mm, especially the Church one ?

The last one : are these coastal antierosion concrete d�fenses working well and where are they located ?

I have the Tamron 60-300mm. Great zoom lens too.

Cheers,



As far as I remenber, the Church image with 60mm. The costal concrete defense, was shot at the Island of Sylt, because they have there massive Problems, that the sea water washing off a lot of the costal line, and the spend millions of Euros for repairs every year!

With an achromatic close-up filter lens 67mm, it is also possible to enter into the macro area!

Now, I have tried my over 30year's old Soligor 60-300mm zoom lens on my new Sony A6500 with it's excellent internal stabilisation. The zoom lens becomes on the APS-C format an 90 - 450mm (!) zoom lens. All images shot with f/8 whereby the most shots are made with the 450mm focal length

YES indeed, but I must get more practice on lower Lights and othe scences (Portraits etc.) with this excellent camera! Also, for better handling, I going to get me an MEIKE battery grip, especially for my heavy manual glasses!
