And the tammy can focus closer(0.95m) than other "competitors",
while keep producing good quality images. :D
I've tried the sigma, it's much worse in close range. :mad:

I have managed to shoot some photos after a hiatus of about 6 months! I was asked to shoot my sister in laws wedding, and even though I didn't get to do any formals (too hot and light too harsh during the day, and as the light became nice, we had to do some cultural bits, which meant the formals went by the wayside). I never shoot portraits normally, let alone weddings, but it was either I take the photos, or they didn't have any apart from everyone elses shots.

9:20am, under the shade of the porch, 40D, 163mm, ISO 100, F3.5, 1/250, flash fired.

40D, 70mm, ISO 200, f5, 1/250, flash fired, just cropped the top of the grooms head unfortunately.

40D, 200mm, ISO 200, f4, 1/80 (wow, I am impressed this is even in focus looking at that shutter speed as it was handheld), flash fired.

I have to say the lens performed well throughout the day, no focus issues with it at all, the only blurry shots were due to handshake and too low a shutter speed.

Excellent shots Gembobs! The first one is my favorite, although I would absolutely love to see a Lilac Breasted Roller in person. You did really well at capturing emotion in the posts above as well. The child shot is adorable!

Thanks WilsonC, the weaver birds have amazing nests when they are breeding (later in the year), and there are therefore more opportuntities to get a more natural background too as they are feeding their chicks. But, when you have a spare half an hour, and nothing more to do than sit and watch them eat, I may as well get some shots! As for the lilac breasted roller, they are a magnificent looking bird. Their feathers shimmer in the light (the glossy starlings do too, but they are not as bright) - when in flight, they look like streaks of bright blue in the sky. Unfortunately they seem to like sitting on electric roadside cables, so whilst they are common, the perches on the whole are far from natural!!

As for the portraits above, I am really pleased with how they came out considering that portraits are not usually my forte in photography (well, I try, but I don't get enough practice), and thankfully my family is made up with them!

Finally was able to shoot some JV football last Monday afternoon, and I was pleased with the results. I even forgot to set the focus mode from one shot lock to AI Servo, and still got quite a few keepers. I am very pleased with the Tammy.

So does this lens still have autofocus issues on Canon?

The autofocus hunts in low light just like most lenses, but using the 5d with the 580 mounted using the assist beam, it was night and day, even in low light.
