All images hand held on A100. I will contribute more over time.

Brick wall!
1. 500mm f/10 1/800s ISO 400.


2. 180mm f/10 1/800s ISO 400.


3. Worst case scenario for a zoom: wide open at the long end.
I find it reasonably sharp in the centers but softens at corners.
500mm f/6.3. ISO 400, 1/1600s.


4. Wide open towards the wide end. Much sharper wide open at the wide end compared to the long end, a known issue with most zooms.
180mm f/5 ISO 400 1/2000s.


5. Side of a plastic trash can.
500mm f/6.3 1/4000s ISO 400.


6. 100% crop of the above (with some roughening by Picasa and my unskilled cropping).


7. Heavy stopping down: 500mm f/16 1/320s ISO 400.

A100. f/11. 500mm. 1/500s. ISO 400.


100% crop of the above.


A100. 400mm. f/11. 1/500s. ISO 400.


100% crop of the above. The crop shows average quality but the full picture seems to be reasonably sharp.
