That looks fantastic for ISO16K on a crop. I've been watching Arthur Morris (birds as art) blog for a couple of weeks with his pre-production and I've been happy with how it looks. I ended up spending the money that I had set aside for the 7d2 to pick up a 300f2.8 non-is. Glad that combo is bw!

Well It came today!!! I can't wait to take it out and shoot with this thing, just took a couple test shots today at work and AF is snappy and accurate. IQ is sharp! The only thing that I don't like is that the retraining screw for the lens hood does not tighten all the way so the hood will stay on but you can rotate it

here are a few pics

Front focused maybe..maybe not. But there is some motion blur for sure..1/80s is just way too much. You should try 1/300s as minimum! :)

Nice shot anyway.

Also after going though the hockey images I took I think OWL you are right in saying that it was front focusing. I took the following tonight playing with the micro adjustment in my 1d3

I was focusing on the eyes.


Im thinking the +20 looks the best.

No Adjustment

I know that the images are not the best but I was just doing the focus test. what are your opinions?
