Oustanding James! How far away were you?
Thanks for the comments all And kudos to Rich S - love your photos. Mine was somewhat easier given that it was stationery at the time! Hoping as well to get a 1.4III or 2.0III converter sometime to try.
I was just a few metres away for this shot, taken at 200mm with a Canon 7D body.
EXIF data: 1/250 sec, f6.3, ISO 100. Note I do use a UV filter as well.
It was a bright sunny day so that helped enormously - no shortage of light for once!
This is a 100% crop. I admit that I have a terrible habit of pixel peeping and rejecting too many photos that look fine on a screen, but seem out of focus at 100%. So when I started pixel peeping with this glass, I just couldn't believe what I was seeing. I love it!
For this shot, I have used LR3 to reduce the background noise a little which works well I think.
That's it ... I spent a long time deciding whether to invest in this glass or not, and all I can say to others in the same position, if you like the photos in this thread, make the investment. It's superb.
