Thank you for your response!

ISO was fairly high...can't remember exactly what it was but in some cases it could have been as high as 3200. I understand stepping down to f/4 but I've read many posts where folks say they're shooting at f/2.8. What's the point of a lens capable of f/2.8 when Im going to have to step down to f/4 to get better results. Your help is certainly appreciated!

I'd hate to say it (since I too have this lens), but ther version 2 of this lens would not find you having to "step down" to f/4 to be sharp. Used a friends recently, and i'm seriously jealous now.... although, at times I found it a little "too sharp" if there is such a thing, for my tast... or maybe it was just that the bokeh was not as pleasing... great lens overall, I wouldn't complain if i owned it :)

I gather squashed and I have the same thought - disgustingly GOOD.. awesome capture, perfect postion, tonnes of "power" in the presentation!

thanks for postin it up, makes me what to go to Bike Rally just for the opportunity to capture like that! (Of course, I'm sure the show would be fun, too, though I've never been to one).
