40D flower shots
Sep 5, 2007
My 40D arrived in late afternoon and I took some photos of flowers under overcast skies with my 17 - 55 f2.8 and the kit 28 - 135 which is not nearly as sharp towards the tele end anyway. I'll try it out again soon in better light and with my long tele lenses on some birds.
I used ISO 400 for all the shots. The first set from the 17 - 55 I shot in sRaw and processed with DPP (my first time to ever use it) and the second set (see text between sets) were shot in jpg with the 28 - 135. All were sharpened but the 17 - 55 didn't take much sharpening!
It does focus very fast!
