Hello everyone

My 70-200 arrived yesterday - nice

Took a couple of photos just to try it out - a bit worried, all of them blurred or out of focus at the 200 end. Had IS turned on so the image in the view finder was stationary. Could be pilot error so will give it a good play with over the weekend.

Don't have any issues with my other lens - as I said, may be pilot error on my part, or could be a bad copy?

Suggestions on a post card please :-)

It will be used on my 5d3 and 7d2 :lol:

What was your shutter speed? Even with the IS, I still like to shoot over 1/200 at the long end for sharp images. IS does a good job, but if you're pixel peeping, things won't be tack sharp at slower speeds.

Hello

Liked the card :-)

I was trying speeds from 1/200 up to 1/600 - Think the auto focus was having problems, the subject may not have had enough contrast to lock onto, but saying that swapping to my 24-105 had no problems shooting the same subject (trees and bushes in this case)

I found that if I had the lens focus set at 3m to infinity and was shooting within the short range 1.2m it would struggle to focus. When I flicked it over to 1.2m to infinity it was beautiful.

Nice shots of the male Costas Moose. I like the ones on your Flickr page too.
