I really like the 2nd and 3rd shots, plus the 2nd and 3rd from last.

Did you intentionally add all the grain?

Thanks and no, I didn't add any grain. I know at ISO 400 the images shouldn't be this grainy, but most were stopped down so I wouldn't get any shaky shots or blurry people. Smile
Double posting, but...

Some wide open Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 DG handheld shots from Tallinn Airport. Like to go there often, so I might post more Smile All at ISO1600-3200











Really need a new long lens, in the F2.8 range Smile

Long and f/2.8 gets heavy and expensive real quick. A 300mm f/4 prime (perhaps with a TC) is about the sweet spot of reach and affordability plus still easily hand-holdable. That said I keep toying with the idea of a 300mm f/2.8. Maybe one day I'll take the plunge.


Some great photos though. Proof you don't need overly fancy gear for most shots.

While I believe you're right and I've tested the *60-250mm F4 lens, the shots above were mostly F4 - F4.5 and it's just the shutter speed that gets way too slow to handle the IQ properly. If I could have gotten twice as fast shutter speeds at F2.8, many of the throwaway shots could have been used. Smile
Why don't you just take pictures with a phone, smh my head...
