That's normal for this lens. I'm not sure why but that's what Flickr shows on my shots also.

Thanks. Good to know that others see it also. Not concerned about it just thought it odd.

^^^^ Wow! You most have been pretty close to him to get that image at 70mm or is it cropped a bit?
Fantastic shots!!

Chuck, I was right on top of her. They were releasing an injured eagle that had been rehabilitated back into the wild. Just a few feet away.

Hi Maverick14
Are you using BBF and Ai Servo for your moving subjects? For me, now that I switched to BBF my success rate has gone up quite a bit although I need a lot more practice for birds in flight. My Tammy 70-300 is rarely off my camera. I'm sure you will enjoy your new lens as much as the rest of us.

I'm a nikon user (D7000), so using the equivalent of Ai Servo and also using BBF. I've found I get more consistent results with focus point expansion AF. I haven't a real chance to test it properly yet but I work next to the airport so had a play with an arriving & departing 777.

I guess my main concern moving forward is going to be keep the shutter speeds up with the slow aperture. We are soon moving into spring down here and mountain biking and jet skiing will be high on the photo subject lists and these can sometimes require quite fast shutter speeds.

After following this thread for some time, I decided to buy Tamron 70-300mm VC lens as an upgrade for my canon 55-250mm IS lens.
I did compare both lens and VC on 70-300mm is way better than IS on 55-250mm.
Posting few pics taken with new lens, all Cropped and edited.
