Some quick pics from this morning.

I got this lens since last October.
Out of the box to test at a football game the day after I got it.
Pictures were not the best.
Not many keepers.

Did some adjustments with the dock and they were better.
Still the tracking and focus were off at times.

Did the firmware update recently.
Lens is pretty good now.
Going to do some fine tuning when I have time.

Pictures are from a junior college scrimmage.
Offense vs defense

EXIF says 1Div. And I agree, nice shots. I'd be happy with those, if the look that good full size.

If your 1D IV and 120-300 2.8 don't live up to your night-time expectations, I'll trade you even for my 60D/Σ70-200 OS. Just trying to help.

i felt like the firmware update made mine a bit better...which way do you have the focus, set for speed, or accuracy, or standard? i haven't had really any time to use mine...been way too busy lately, to get any time to use it

bobby, i'd still like to give you a chance to use mine...but probably won't have time for a couple weeks.

Thanks. I am also quite busy with traveling to asia every month or so. That is why I haven't picked one up yet.
