I'm struggling with this lens outdoors doing full body shots around 30ft. Cannot for the life in me get the subject tack sharp consistently. In the studio up close you could cut steak with it.

What are the shutter speeds you've been using for your outdoor subjects?

1/200 usually at f2.8 with an Elinchrom Quadra strobe.... using it with a 5D MkII.

I had similar results when using strobes outside. When I use my speedlites on HSS at shutter speeds a bit higher I have much better results.

How sharp are your shots when you're not using strobes and your shutter speeds are considerably higher?

Very interesting!! I was advised the same thing by another member and was pretty shocked to realise the shutter speed had so much of an effect (between usable image and not usable) even when using the strobe. I will try it out with natural light tomorrow and see what the script is as I haven't shot it without flash yet ....... thanks ;)

Thats the way I used to feel too but in reality being in awe of photographers like Dankata on here has improved my own photography a lot as it makes me push myself to take better shots and think about the shots more - location, composition etc

Only be a better photographer than no one except the photographer you were yesterday.;)

Also for portrait (full body or headshot) f/2.0 is enough to keep your subject tack sharp...
