Would this picture be considered to be in sharp focus?
The picture is straight out of the camera.
Other than the in camera processing of the landscape picture style and the resizing of the image for posting here, no post processing at all has been done.
Posting the JPEG image as I'm not sure how to post a RAW image.
Posted the screen shot to show where the auto focus point was on the bird.
I'm not sure how far from the bird I was as I took many pictures but the farthest I would've been would be roughly 50yds.
Based on this image, I would say I was much closer than 50yds for this particular shot.
The bird isn't really big in size so, I couldn't fill the frame with it.
It's either a lesser Yellowleg or Solitary Sandpiper.
Not really sure as it's my first time seeing this type of bird.
I'm curious about the sharpness quality as the picture was taken with a newly purchased lens.
I'll have some follow up questions at some point about a couple of things if anyone is interested in giving their thoughts and opinions.
It's a really nice day here so, I'm heading out to practice some more with this lens.
