Does well as a landscape lens when you have the room, too :)

Got it. Uploaded to here, I'll figure out the hosting thing nex.

Shot with my EF-S 55-250. Hand held, F19, 1/125 sec, 146mm focal length. No PP other than resizing.

My choice for PP would be to adjust contrast.

I believe it was the elk. I might have had it on general and caught the tree though. Had to work fast, still getting used to controls.

Wow, software shows where AF points were! So cool. Unfortunately tree and left rear hoof. Need to recall elk.

Went back to book, the Picture Style was set on landscape which has sharpness at less than middle. I'll try diffeent settings and look for the ducks.

i must say your lucky to get shots of elk so easily, in michigan i have to travel well north to even think about trying to get shots like that, even with that i'd need lots of luck.

its just wierd at f/19 it should be really sharp.

a pic i took at a festival by my place, a mime of some sort trying to be a robot or something. Soooo sharp.

remember, its difficult to shoot at f/19 and have a shutter speed fast enough to avoid shake. my guess is that was shake on the elk.

that was the first thing i "re-learned" about this lens. everything i shot the first two months had shake in it. i thought for sure i had a soft copy. most people, imo, cant go slower than 1/320. and, even then, they need to focus on proper technique.

with the 1.6X sensors, we are shooting at a 400mm equivalent. the 1/focal length rule would state we shoot on 1/400 to be safe. but, i think you can work your way down to 1/250 with excellent technique. when shooting moving objects, like sports or birds, i will use Tv mode. its the only time i will be in Tv mode.
