I had a really hard time with this guy. Locked up the mirror, still got a minute shake. 15 shots later with some sharpening and who knows what else and a lot of dust removal, it looks OK. Nothing special. The watch is almost brand new. I wiped and polished with my microfiber cloth and the dust when magnified was beyond ridiculous :)

It is better, Renata, but I think you could get it even sharper. Did you use LiveView and manual focus at 10x magnification? In addition, I would then start at higher ISO and faster SS and see what that looks like. Then you could gradually lower SS/ lower ISO to get optimum. My version of the lens is tack sharp but it needs lots of care to get it to play well!

This.

Also, did you turn off the IS?

I didn't use live view and forgot to turn the IS off. It was just a quick shot with the objective to get the second hand moving like a fan :) I will try today again and see what happens. Thanks for the ideas :)

When you use LiveView, the mirror is already up, so no vibration, as long as you turn the IS off (which, if it doesn't find vibration to correct, introduces vibration of its own) and use a cable release, you should be OK. :)

PS: If you're using mirror lockup, wait about 3-5 seconds before you press the button a second time, so that any shake from the mirror elevation is gone.

It wouldn't mean anything because it wasn't a single shot...
the main glass image was stacked with the droplet captured after all that was finished.
