    Mini Orchids. SD1 Merrill with 100-400 5-6.3 DG lens mounted on tripod with Haoge LMR-SM140 Lens Collar. 400mm f/11 ISO 800. I just couldn't come up with a good approach to photograph this plant. Too many small blossoms at different angles. I might try focus stacking or just macro shots of individual blossoms.

    Squirrels are digging into their winter stash of acorns now. Handheld shot through window with sd1 Merrill and 100-400 @ 400mm. Difficult and not very good salvage of a badly underexposed image. Exported blue layer with Rawdigger and further processing in Luminar 4.

    Improvised cocktail table outside the Farmers Market at Steamboat Landing on Cayuga Inlet. Sigma SD1 Merrill with 30/1.4 Art lens. Any dendrologists care to tell us how old this tree was? Click for a larger view.

    Re overall performance and IQ, would you recommend the Sigma 100-400 as general purpose long tele Carl? Iím considering it to use on my sd Quattro.

    Hi Gary,

    I've only had the 100-400 a short while, but so far I've been quite satisfied with the performance and image quality from this lens. It is relatively light weight, but solid and well constructed so easy to carry around for hand held shooting. I just purchased another SDQH that I previously owned and regrettably sold 3 years ago. I will see how the 100-400 performs on the quattro and let you know.

    Horrible day for lens testing with mixed sleet and pouring rain, but took a few shots indoors through windows. Put the Sigma 100-400 C DG lens on the SDQH. These were shot in DNG mode and imported directly into Lightroom for processing.

    Hi Carl. Thanks for sharing your photos and thoughts re the Sigma 100-400 lens. I ordered one from Adorama (it was in stock) and the Haoge lens collar from Amazon yesterday. The lens is on sale now for $609 USD (the $190 rebate expires tomorrow). Quite a good price. I'm looking forward to trying it on my sd Quattro.

    Imaging Resource did a very thorough review of the lens here:
