Put the Sigma on to see how it would handle this speed. Did a little MA on this lens, too, and seemed to hold its own on the predictable patterns. Got about a half doz. keepers-here's a couple. Unfortunately, it's all the same dominant female. Wish some male would come in and take her to task!

great job! Wish my Bigma (or I) could get results like that. I think the males are all gone by now - I haven't seen one here in Md. for almost a month now.

Is Bigma the correct nickname-can't seem to remember? Thank you for the nice comment. Maybe the males are now gone from here too-this female never lets anything get close to "her" feeder. There were 4 Hummers out there late last evening, I assume juveniles, playing and/or generally just checking each other out. It would be great to capture but that ain't never gonna happen! Seems to happen only close to darkness.

Thank you, Lil. It is a good feeling. Have big plans for next year w/ some flowering shrubs, but we'll see how that plays out.

Sounds like a veiled version of "I told you so!". But you were right. I actually had tried it a couple of times before-my 85 1.8 was about a mile off-but had always tried it indoors and, I guess, not far enough back. But it was evident on this go around. Since both the Sigma and the 70-200 showed backfocus, I'm thinking maybe the camera has a bit of an issue. Now that I have the 30D back-up, probably should send the 7D in. Of course, then I'd have to go thru the whole MA thing again-lol! Thanks, Mark.

Very nice. I forgot what is MA. Is that has something to do lens and camera body like 7d?

Thanks, Peter. MA is microadjusting-fine tuning the lens and camera combo. Go to Custom Functions in the 7D menu 3-Autofocus/drive, #5 microadjustment. Read up on it in the manual and search it in this forum-you'll find a lot of directions/help. The best explanation I read was, I think, a Canon publication-Cameras and lens are made to a factory tolerance of +/- 3 units, say. Your camera comes out of the factory w/ a +3 deviance, still within specs and the lens you're mounting happens to be -3 deviance, still within factory specs. You now have an error of 6 units-OOPS! That's what MA is all about. Hope this helps and this is worth checking out. Good luck!
