excellent, my only (very slight) niggle would be that the focus point looks to be just behind the head on the dark collar - but that's being really picky. You are showing us just how well this lens matches the 300F4LIS for this type pf shot, NICE!

Aperture Alert !

My L copy Does Not Like f/9 ~

I was shooting a kingfisher today in overcast skies, low light lagoon environment and half were shot with f/8 and then I thought I would try to squeak a little more crispness out of the lens so I clicked her to f/9. It was a turn for the worse, its less detail 'on my copy' versus f/8. I had to crop all shots as it was perched far away.

I'm pretty sure that there is also a noticeable difference in IQ using f/8 (very good) versus f/7.1 (not as good) from when I was shooting the moon at night when I got the lens.

So this is an FYI - experiment for yourself. Hope your copies fairs better, but I will not be using f/9 again for critically sharp shots.

Cheers ~

quick note: my f/8 shots were ISO 2000, major crops...

all f/9 were also ISO 2000, major crops

-- except one - which was f/9, ISO 1250, major crop - which was a 'usable' image...

William the big problem more that the lens itself, is the diffraction you begin to see with our cameras when closing the apertures, making the shots to me not as sharp like shots taken at f8 or faster apertures, that's why I'm not using f8 or narrower shots as much as I want with my 7D because sharpness is affected at pixel level thanks to this high mp density sensors.

I can understand diffraction is a limiting factor - but my previous 70-300 IS non-L was quite sharp at f/8, yet even sharper at f/9 at 300mm.

and on my L lens - I believe f/8 is sharper than f/7.1...

I think it would be quite difficult to see a diffractive difference between f/8 and f/9, although, I was working with heavy crops...
I figured it typically played more of a degenerative role at, say, f/13?

Howdy all,

Just joined up here the other day, and this thread has inspired me no end whilst wasting many hours at work browsing the forum. I also have this lens so though I would kick off by posting some images I've taken with it. I am very much a novice at this, so excuse the quality of the shots. Desperately looking to tips and tricks as I love macro shots especially!

Comments and critics always welcome of course, but the aim of the thread is obviously to show people the potential of this particular lens :)

Cheers, Orias
