Well after a lot of shots I think I've got MA adjusted where it needs to be. The sky is not the best, but then the inversion is starting to set in here in Salt Lake, and I really wasn't shooting the sky.

As far as web sized images go, it looks like you've got it pretty well nailed down to me.

airplanes should be photographed as they appear. In landing there us usually some nose up attitude (except for the BUFF) so level the Earth's horizon and leave it.

Initially I wasn't real happy with the lens, but now that I've got it adjusted to my 5D2, I like it a lot more.

The 100-400 is an interesting lens. It took me a few months to get comfortable with it. It really delivers around f7.1-8.0.

With all the Delta SLC looks like MSP! Got any non-Delta shots?

That's funny Jeremy. . .I was out in low 20 degree weather for about 30 minutes and the only planes that were landing we're Delta. On the eastern runways every other airline was taking off. I guess every other airline was delayed.

I'll work on it in the future.

The more I use the lens, the more I like it. And you're absolutely correct about it coming into it's own at f/8

Level the sky so the plane looks natural, i.e. landing config and angle, etc.
