Single point or all points ?

sorry, just spotted this, it varies, often its with the cluster of points selected (can't remember the correct title) but if its coming in from clear air I will pick it up using all points and it holds focus as it comes across the trees

great example of what it can do Tinga, what shooting conditions did you use to get it? Lovely eye light and feather detail here

Diffraction softening starting at f10 with 300mm FL? I was shooting under some rather poor conditions and decided to play with a few settings. I beginning to get the impression that I'm seeing some diffraction softening coming in at f10 (sharpest is between f5.6 - f8) at 300mm FL.

I've nothing worth posting from today, but I wondered of anyone else has seen this yet?

At f8 with the TC on at 420mm I am beginning to notice some softening too. f5.6-f8 at 300 is as you say, like a razor.

Need to test that a bit more. As the TC is on mostly only for the birds the slight softening could also be due to slight movements of the birds or myself.
