Shockey, can you explain something to me, if the lens likes f8, would I be better off to set it on aperture priority and leave it while shooting at 500mm? It would force me to increase the ISO which is more noise. Would it help the softness?
To be honest the camera that your using should be capable of kicking out good usable images at iso 1600 and some at 3200 if you expose them well enough, i've even had and seen other's produce nice shots at 6400, so don't be affraid of bumping the iso up, with iso numbers like this you could quite easily set your f stop to f/8 , but if you feel more comfortable av mode put it in av mode , after all thats why the camera has it
