One of my favorite captures ever. Taken a few days ago at the Kern National Wildlife Preserve first day with my new lens. The background and the isolation are fantastic. This lens is amazing.

Still playing with my 7D2 and dialing in the lens more on it.

I've seen extraordinary feather detail on this thread with this lens and I'm trying not to be envious :-P ;-)a

Still feel I am trying to dial-in perfect focus for my copy as well :rolleyes: :lol:

Yeah mine is -8 with my 70D, but my other lenses essentially do not need MA.

all 4 of the 1D3 bodies I owned over the years always seem to need a good bit of MA

I may type up a review of this lens in my typical fashion... Anyone interested in that? :)

Anyways.. I think the one on the wire is the weakest of this set, I believe I actually had a male and a female out there but I have been trying hard to cut down the amount of duplicate "poses" I post... The male just seemed to end up in better poses...

How do you tell male from female Blue Jays? I have a dozen or so Blue Jays in my yard every day and I can't tell the difference.

It's good to hear there are others out there which still need to MA the lens for perfect result even after a long use. I have had this lens for 10 month and still adjust from time to time to get better result. But dialed in, it's good. But I also noticed that the ligth has much to do with the result. If the light isn't perfect I feel the lens or camera can have a hard time focus. Took some pictures yesterday at approx. 15 meters and when the light came in from the side the focus was awful and when the light came from my back, it was just perfect.
