Thanks, I don't have much idea how to interpret these graphs though. I'm not a peeper so real world comparisons will be fine.

Yeah, that link was posted earlier in this thread. I wish those shots had the EXIF data in them.

On Amazon's Japan site they had these shots with the exposure settings listed. The only one I can remember is that the fox shot, which seems to be pretty damn sharp, was taken at f/9.

Thanks for the link.

To be fair at that focal lenght and price, one can't really complain...it is what it is.

Just to be clear, you can use this on any Canon camera correct? Full frame, etc?

I was thinking of upgrading my 20D and 1DMKII, but now I'm thinking of investing my money in a new lens instead !
Anyone know what camera was used in those picture threads with the fox and Cranes ?

A mixture of 5D3 and 1DX I believe.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

Good find! Those samples don't look bad IMO. Sure, they're sorting out their "best" photo's to post, but doesn't everyone?

If this thing can track via AI Servo, I think they'll have a real winner.

The majority of those shots were taken wide open at 600mm. They look good. Are they razor sharp? No, not yet. But they are sharp-able, and that is what I am looking for. If this lens can produce these kinds of images wide open at 600mm, I know I can make it work.

I didn't see many wide open when I was looking at the EXIF. The ones I saw were at f/8 or f/9.
