curious if anyone has tried the 70D with the Kenko 1.4 extended and how it performs.

My kenko 60D combo was unacceptable - too too much focus hunting

I have this combo and can test it but not for a few days as I didn't bring the kenko on vacation with me. On a side note, I shot a lot of BIF today at the beach. I'll post pics when I can.

Groovy Mike - and please share what setting you prefer to use for auto-focus and also menu settings if you don't mind

This caterpillar ambling through the sphagnum moss on the rockery looks as if it is contemplating whether to eat the next sticky-up bit of greenery. As it turned out, it just sauntered past it and dropped to a deeper part of the rock below!

I'm just a beginner in photography. Still have a lot to learn but this camera has certainly improved my photos. I love to photograph animals since I do work with them. Just wanted to share this photo to get some constructive criticism. Thanks in advance.

Welcome Newfy! I'm saving up for a 70D myself.. still using my old rusted-out clunky 60D... ;)

do you work in an animal shelter?

fine looking dog there, but I think you will see its lacking some focus. You may know this but I'll cover it anyways - when you press the shutter button with your right index finger - make sure you just press enough to activate the auto-focus and 'then' press fully to capture the shot. Pointing at the eye on animals and people and having it in focus is considered ideal. I imagine you have your lens set to 'auto' instead of manual.

The exposure itself looks fine, meaning its not too dark or too washed-out with light.

You've posted with a good group of folks here who will be pleased to assist along the way.

you can also say hello at the 60D Lounge where you can ask anything or post with whatever camera you happen to be using at the time. > here <

good luck and have fun ~

Another great shot Paul, do you do anything special in post, or is the 100 macro just insanely sharp? How much sharpening & clarity do you typically apply?

Thanks Steve.

If the image needs sharpening, I use a high pass filter on a separate layer, and change the layer blend to overlay, then reduce the opacity as required, Sometimes, it needs the saturation dropping a touch too. If that brings in a touch of noise, then a quick touch of NR cures that.

For web, I reduce the image size to 1024pix, and that will soften it up, so I run a smidge of unsharp mask for that before posting.

But yes, the lens is pretty sharp up to f/11 before a hint of diffraction starts.

Paul.

A couple from this weekend's fly-in in Coolidge, AZ
These are with 70-200 f2.8L II
I did do some planes in-flight work with the 70D, just need to process and post. Camera did very well!
