When I hear "I live in Pittsburgh" and "I dont have anywhere to shoot", it puzzled me at first, before I realized it was a kid. For someone with mobility there has to be 10,000 places to shoot any...

My experience when I had that lens was it was pretty poor under F8. Maybe I had a bad example. His camera should be able to handle ISO400 just fine. I think ISO400 F8 and 1/400 or 1/320 would have...
