The setting sun on a tractor that has seen better days.

Know this is an old post, but your softness looks like it is due to panning motion. Look at the edges of the bird, they blurred and most noticeable. It boils down to technique, don't jerk the camera and be smooth, higher SS would continue to help too. I happen to use +2 for your two +1 settings.

Thanks for the advice! I've tried higher shutter speeds and the rate of sharp photos did increase. I'm trying to pan smoothly, but my panning technique definitely needs improvement (plus thos damn birds are fast ;-)a).
Will try to change the settins to +2!

Are you getting consistently sharp photos when stationary? Has MFA been done, this shot looks like it could be slightly back focused, but it could be tracking or technique issue.
Again, technique can't be haphazard, and some effort for steadiness is necessary, even with 1/2000 when at 560mm. Definitely can Not be in Mode 1 IS and if you are, it would explain this, try mode 2 or three to help.

Yes, when stationary the results are pretty consistent. I have MFAd the lens/extender combo in the meantime and think that sharpness in general improved a little bit.
I think my issues were mainly down to too slow shutter speeds and using all AF points (18 of which are line sensors when using the extender). After stopping to use the line sensors, my keeper rate improved and it improved a bit further when using faster shutter speeds (at least 1/2000 and improving again when using 1/3200 and 1/4000).
I mostly have IS turned off for BIF but have tried mode 2 and 3 also. Need to practice more to find out which works best for me.

Impressive dynamic range! The tractor being in the shade seems fittingly symbolic as it rests (rusts?) in peace. The ferns growing up through it suggest it hasn't moved for a while (despite good tyres). Is it a Kubota (can't quite read the manufacturer's label)?

Are you happy with the 18-135 USM ? I'm getting one with my recently ordered 80D - hopefully I'll get it in the next couple of days...

Hi Alec,

The tractor is an International Harvester and if I remember correctly, the model is an FC……I could be wrong.

As far as the 18-135 USM is concerned, I’m very happy with it. There are some days that I wish it was a little faster and perhaps a little bit sharper but its focal length makes it a perfect walk around lens for what I currently shoot. For me, the 80D and the 18-135 USM are a perfect combination for my growing skills, with plenty of ability to capture all that I want to capture.
I’ll defer to the wisdom of others here who have much more experience to give you a comprehensive assessment of the camera and lens.
At the end of the day, I’m very pleased with the results that this combination produces and I look forward to using this camera and lens to its full potential.

Took a few photos of the partially obscured full moon, made for some neat abstract pieces.
