This is the Soligor at 200MM. This pic is at F11. I guess I need a tripod as I seem to be shaky.

Richard, if you have your camera set to P mode then that picture was shot at wide open, with manual lenses you can only use the camera in M mode, and you have to use the green button to force the aperture to stop down so the camera can set a correct exposure.

A weather sealed ultra wide, is that too much to ask?
