That has to be one of the sharpest shots I have seen with this lens...would really appreciate if you would be happy to show the 'unsharpened' version so we can see how sharp the lens is by itself.
Also, I cannot see your exif data in flickr (and do not have a plug in/exif viewer), could you please advise what focal length and shutter speed were used.
Shutter Speed was 1/400. Focal length was around 350mm if I remember correctly (RAW image is on a different computer). I was tracking this bird in a different location (further away) when he suddenly flew up on this branch. I had to shorten the focus ring, move the camera, and my AF point was set for a completely different composition. And of course this had to be done quickly -- they don't exactly stay still while you re-compose!. I managed to get the AF point over the eye, but the bird very nearly was cut off in the top of the frame. I had to do some "canvas extension" in post to save the shot, which I wanted to do because it's one of the sharper ones I managed to get.
I'm happy to share the original image. What's the best way to do this? I'm new to Flickr -- is there a means to share the RAW photos there?
