Re: Bigma

Hi John,

you might want to go to the Gallery and use the Search function with 'Bigma'. You will get tons of photos coming up, which have been taken with it - and even some of mine

The Bigma is heavy, it is soft wide open, it is prone to CA's (chromatic aberrations; at least mine is), needs a bigger hood IMO (I use a 86mm screw on type) - but, it is the only lens I can afford, which gives me the reach I want/need.
Since I finally found one for a decent amount of cash, I have taken 90% of all my photos with it. I only own a E-30 and I know your E-5 will press definately more detail out of the Bigma. If you can find one, go for it!

I am not afraid of Tits
