with a great
splashing...they didn't manage to drown the third one but it didn't seem to be for lack of trying!

Older iterations of the new lens had a problem with the auto focus motor quitting soon after purchase. Unfortunately those reporting the issue had it happen while on the trip for which they made the purchase. To keep this from happening here the plan is to take quite a few pictures everyday until satisfied it isn't a problem. Those events were over a year ago so am guessing Sigma has fixed it. Consequently not all will be what I may hope for: for several days it rained so hard I took pictures inside here! Those won't be published. Here, instead is one on a good day.
The new lens arrived today. Unfortunately it was raining and being unprepared for wet weather the first shots were taken from the out the back door. Happily I am not responsibile for either of these roofs but thought they made interesting subjects. These are the raw photos (not to be confused with RAW files); I am quite happy with the results.
