Played around more with this lens over the weekend. It was surprising how soft it gets at f/22. f/16 is OK but f/11 is better. Will have to change my approach a bit.

Here is one at f/16. I wish black and white images didn't look so soft on this forum. Click on the link for a sharper image.

Since I use this lens on an APS-C camera I am using a DYI modified lens hood for the 100-400L II. It is nice to have a door to use a CPL.

Here is one from todays test of the new lens. So far I'm happy with it, its the first I don't have to microadjust on camera (5DmkII). This is my baby son (16yo).

This one is SOC, resized and saved to jpeg to fit here, no Photoshop adjustment at all. Trying to see how sharp this one is, once again it didn't failed on me. I think this one is a keeper, what you think guys? Is this size too big?

Most lenses soften after f11, it's quite normal.

The cpl door on my 100-400 hood is a pain in the neck.
It opens on it's own and caused flare.

The 28-300L is very good stopped down to f/22. I have been in the habit of using a 6-stop ND filter and/or f/22 or higher to get long exposures on overcast days. I think I have gone as far as f/29 with good results. It is great for smoothing out water.

I was just not expecting the 24-105L II to be so noticeably different in this regard. Like I said, I'll have to change my approach.

The Fotodiox lens hood for a 24-70 2.8 v1 works well on the 24-105L II APS-C combo and doesn't have the CPL door. Only $6 too.

I'm also led to think that the diffraction limit is f5.9 on the 80D
Not that I pretend to understand what that is or means.

Just did a little reading on the subject. Maybe I need to get a 10-stop ND filter. If DLA is lens agnostic I wonder why the 28-300L images seem to do better at smaller apertures. Time for more research.

The 24MP of the 80D is equivalent to 63MP on a full-frame camera. The pixels on the 80D are really tiny and they are more susceptible to diffraction. Here's a comparison from The Digital Picture. It's the 80D with Canon's 200 f/2L lens (one of the best lenses ever made). The link compares the 80D + 200L at f/4 and f/16. The difference is diffraction.

https://www.the-digital-picture.com …omp=0&FLIComp=0​&APIComp=7 (external link)

If you change the camera to a 1DX2 and use the same f-stops, you'll see that there is much less diffraction.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.
