Heya,

Was driving home, saw some woodstorks in a local retention pond ditch and a great blue heron. Stopped to shoot a few before continuing home.

Very odd. I've had pretty good results on my T1i, which is a much older and lower-range body than the 70D. It doesn't always hit focus especially when the light is dim, but when it does, it's good.

I think it really comes down to light. Whilst it's a slightly different comparison; I notice a huge difference in focussing between the 5D3's cross type and non-cross type points in really low light.

I suspect that an old body with the Tamron in good light would challenge or exceed a better body in very low light - but that's true of any body/lens combo; it's just the point at which ok becomes not ok will be different.

Crazy idea (just throwing it out there - no idea if it's realistic) but there's the better beamer for extending flash power for taking the shot, but that's not going to help the IR AF assist beams.

I wonder if you could mount a powerful torch on camera, such that it would give a little more light on a subject for both aiding AF and then the exposure. Theoretically I'm sure it's feasible, but whether it's practically useful I'm not sure. Essentially you kinda want a video light with a better beamer on the front.

I had fantastic light yesterday with dismal results, took the 6d today in terrible light and had better results. I just have a problem with this lens on my 70d, the 6d I have figured out with this lens.
My issue isn't a light issue for sure. It's soft, missed focus issues.

Bad light could certainly cause missed focus issues, but if you did have great light then yea, there must be something it doesn't like about your 70D.

On the assumption that it won't be shutter speed or technique problems (as it's working for you on the 6D), what AF settings are you using with the 70D? I'm familiar with the (similar) 7D and you have to be careful with the AF points as it can lock on detail that's just outside the active AF squares in the viewfinder (thus it doesn't focus on what you expected).

If you notice, my EXIF is intact. I put them in the 200F2 thread in the context of discussing isolation/bokeh, and that you can get dreamy bokeh even at F8, if you have long enough focal length. I posted those two images in that thread, and asked people to guess the aperture. Experienced people will note right away that it is a long focal length, others can be fooled that it is a fast aperture when it's not. It's all about understanding depth of field and it's relationship to ratios. This is more of an exercise of doing that, even with the Tamron.

Very best,

Tx MalveauX for clearing that out ;) ! Don't mind me! Just continue showing us the fine pics :D
Greetings,

Peter, Great king fisher shots.

How close were you getting there? I can barely get close to maybe 60 feet on King Fishers it seems. They're so spooky and run so fast the moment they even think you're coming. Did you camp out and wait for him, or just happen upon him? Anyhow, great shots.

Very best,
