Question on AF method ?

Can anyone explain their views and choice of setting.

I was just scrolling through my red Menu options and came across this.

I have three options;
+ tracking (currently set on this)
flexizoneAF ()
flexizoneAF (small square)

Thanks

Not bad sharpness. 7Dii plus 400mm 5.6L plus Kenko 1.4 converter. This is a very common local bird, the boat tailed grackle, female. This was a lens test and first shot with the Kenko. I think the sharpness on this one is pretty good.

Mine has worked great out of the box. A year later, still going strong:

We're still in CR. Place is a treasure trove for birders, macro'ist and I guess the beach people though we're not the suntanning type. Finally made it to the coast after 11 days in the mountains. Taking a day off, back on the road tomorrow-

On the 2nd shot, I think the SS is too low. Personally I would trade off a faster SS and less DoF - maybe 1/200th F5.6 instead of 1/80 F9.

On the first shot something seems not quite right with the flowers - almost a plastic look. Is that what they look like ? or did you you maybe too much NR without masking or is it a magenta / purple / red channel luminosity / saturation issue.

Really like the first picture and wish we had birds like that around her.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

That 1st bird looks like the Kiskadee.

I haven't used this lens in a very long (was my main lens and then my sidekick), so because I am soon to be testing the new 100-400 II, I took this lens out today to give it a look to see if it will stay in my stable of lens. One thing became very apparent quickly, I ain't getting any younger and hand holding this lens with no IS on a 1.6 crop body is not as easy as it used to be. It became apparent very quickly as I could see lots of movement when hand holding. I just was not as steady as I used to be and as a result I had to jack up the SS, which in turns requires me to jack up the ISO (I like ISO low as possible) and I had to do more burst shots to get sharper images. Anyway here are a couple shots from the 400 5.6 from today. I don't know about it's fate yet. I will have to wait to see how the 100-400 II fares on an outing.

Note: my images degrades a lot when uploading here. The fur has so much more detail and is much sharper on my screen before the upload. Output is 1280 as required - any tips to get a better looking upload?

Thanks

well imho thats looks pretty good for iso 2000 / 3200 and id be surprised if the 7d11 / 100 - 400 v2 betters it ( unless its one like jeffs was )- i know the v2 i had for a short while probably wouldnt have - but i cant understand why canon do not upgrade that lens with is - they would sell an awlful lot of a 400 f5.8 IS 11 lens if the price was in any way resonable

The reason I made the comment is that I have personal experience here. You can see the details in the bird's feathers but the detail, I think, is lost in the flower which 'look' like they are on a similar plain. That color, the purple / reds, is very quick to 'blow out' in detail and sometimes playing with the luminance & saturation sliders for purples and magentas can bring back some of that detail.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC.
