Youridin,
I have not had any trouble either..... i'm at 1000+ shots on my copy.
But i have become aware of the sensitive nature of digital - especially crop cameras as compared w/ film.
Check the following:
Shutter speed - if you are shooting at a zoom setting of 100 (example) - your shutter should be 2x the zoom length or 1/200 as a min unless using a tri-pod. This is a general rule.
Focus area: you can turn on a feature that the 50D will display where it focused. The camera could have focused on a different area then what you desired.
IS: just because you shoot w/ IS - make sure the subject does not move.

User issues: make sure you did not induce camera movement when pressing the button. Sound silly but sometimes we can be a little careless when taking pictures in digital. I think this comes from the huge success of point and shoot cameras.
Meaning: if you mess up a p&s picture ... no biggie. But w/ a DSLR - the expectation it that the shots will be super fabulous.....


Your shot look fine to me. With your lens, you will probably have to shoot w/ a lower f/ stop depending on the zoom setting for the sharpest pictures.
example: zoom at 135mm - f/5.6 is the fastest - shoot at f/6.3 or f/7.1.

:cool:good luck and keep asking the questions.....
Mark

I just checked the exif your shutter was 1/25. You might want go for a faster shutter speed because its easy to suffer from motion blur at that speed. You also might want to invest in a flash for indoor photography. It will improve your indoor shots dramatically.

The more I use mine the more I like it...my photos are getting better and I don't have THE best lenses. I'm finding out the ones that have not turned out have been user error..:confused:

Everyone who has posted their photos - GREAT JOB!

I agree, that shot doesn't look bad at all. Don't get lens envy, focus on technique.
I agree about the flash. I have a 550ex and it makes a huge difference.

Ps. Are you shooting in RAW format. If you are, you may need to sharpen a little.
