Love this lens! Finally had a good day here in Belgium, so the kids could play in the garden. This is my youngest daughter Elle.

Going to have to put mine into the shop tomorrow. Had it about 5 years. Reckon I've taken about 20,000 shots with it. Last week it started seizing up mid shot - intermittently. The camera showed 'error communicating with lens'. I cleaned the contacts on the lens and the camera with ethanol. Seemed OK after, but then the problem started again. There were one or two frames taken during the issue that were wildly over-exposed or wildly underexposed, and clearly not what the exif claimed the shot was, so it was like the aperture blades were sticking. But sitting pressing DoF preview at f22 the blades were shutting and opening fine. Meanwhile, I've had 2 full days of shooting with other lenses and the camera has been fine, so I conclude that the error is with the lens.

So, I'll just have to hand it in and hope they can find the fault and fix it OK. I use this lens for about 50% of my day-to-day shots. Even doing 2 days of shooting without it was a pain, having to jump about from lens to lens.

Anyone have any advice for more successful panning shots? Camera settings etc... I had a lot of non-keepers last night. TIA

can you share the settings of the above shot - or PM if you wish.

a shutter of 640-800 is usually enough to freeze most anything a human is doing, so so apart from that - consider using center focus, AI Servo, maybe f/6.3 or 7.1 to help get your subject in focus with a wider depth of field, auto ISO (better to have some noise that blur, typically). Maybe shoot a burst so you can choose the best of the bunch...

The above is a basic starting point and maybe you already did the above. Your 7D is more than up to the task of course

I think this is my first post - I've been experimenting a bit with a Canon 'close-up' lens AND a short 'tube' - The limited depth of field is a bit OTT but I have read that it's possible to 'fix' the aperture by holding down the 'DOF' button so I'll try that next time the sun comes out ... any advice very welcome though.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

My biggest gripe is I missed focus on so many of the shots. I was in AI Servo and AF focal point expansion. I guess I should expect some non-keepers.:rolleyes:

My betting is you didn't really miss focus, just didn't accurately pan and so got a soft result.

EDIT - For example I can tell from the spokes in the above shot that you moved the camera a little faster than the bike was going.

Great pics through this thread. I'm considering this lens as my next purchase. How is the IS on it? I have the 70-300L, and the IS on that lens is amazing. Is this anything like that?

Thanks for your thoughts. :)
