Granddaughter is a cutie pie. You nailed her. The other two are right on too.

Nice shots Win+Fox!! I love this lens and I don't mean that in a metaphorical sense.

Gas Hill Gasp - taken at an annual up hill bike race held in Norwich (UK)

The focus is slightly off, but hopefully not to much of an issue. This was my first time shooting anything that moves ;)

If you say it's off I'll believe you but if you hadn't said I wouldn't have noticed. Great job!

I think it might be a slight hint off but the subject it still isolated from the background making it a great image. If I were the subject I would be happy to get a copy of this from the OP.

I like the bike image. All the action photographers I know accept a high percentage of less than desirable shots to come up with a keeper. At the present moment on the learning scale if I get ten percent keepers I am pleased. If I get one that is truely excellent in all aspects per outing I am more than pleased.

XTi a 400d? if so our camera's are crap for sports photography. we need a 7d for that

make sure the focus distant switch is set appropriately.

Mine takes forever to focus, and I miss many shots because it won't focus. I'm thinking I got a bad lens --- THe one I rented focused much faster than this one I purchased.

Jonney.............you are absolutely right. A 7D is a must have for me. I simply elected to short the body and put the good glass in the bag first. All the pods and filters have been changed to handle the new lens needs. I've had the XTi a long time and consider it a darn good entry body. My personal plan is to enter the 7D within the next two years. I am a hobby shooter with no desire to start a business. I am also seventy five years young and counting. In another year or two the 7D may become a 7D II. I can clearly see and understand the need for the 7D.

+1 on the 7D. I've had mine for just over a year (upgraded from a T1i) and it's awesome for the softball games and soccer games I shoot. The 70-200 f/2.8L IS Mark II sure as heck helps too!
