    I am waiting to get my D70 and I got my Sigma 70-300 APO lens early. So of course I am very curious and took the caps off to look through it. I can't really see anything except objects which are really close... it doesn't make sense to me. I would think that you could just look through a lens and see the same kinda thing that you would see through the view finder.

    hmm...I guess I will have to wait for my camera to enjoy my lens... I thought it would be possible and fun to zoom in at 300mm and look at things like it was scope. But I am foolish...

    nope, just ignorant

    there's a big difference

    ignorant gets changed when you learn, fools never do
