« on: May 28, 2016, 13:07:26 »

20160507-071 by 20160507-071-2 by longzoom, on Flickrotos/longzoom/]longzoom[/url], on Flickr.      This one, at 400mm, wide open, with 100% crop, was taken to check the lens for any CA. As you can see, there is nothing significant to speak about.

20160504-035 by 20160504-035-2 by longzoom, on Flickrom/photos/longzoom/]longzoom[/url], on Flickr.   Almost minimal distance, heavy crop. Sharp and detailed.  Stunning color, without any bleeding.

So this Lady image is a crop about 1/4 of full frame, while kids are a crops about 100%, but even so still printable to 20x24" (50x60cm), or even bigger.  Flickr carries all of info.  THX!

20160527-035 by 20160527-035-4 by longzoom, on Flickrm/photos/longzoom/]longzoom[/url], on Flickr.    At 80mm, crop. For more real look of the image/crop, go to the Flickr, please, and click on pic, for sharper result. I do not know why, but almost all images look way sharper on Flickr, than here on the Forum! THX!
