Images not as sharp as live view
Mar 21, 2009

I have a 40D and just obtained a 100-400mm zoom a week ago and have not been overly happy with the sharpness. Tonight, I was playing with live view and find that I can not obtain an image that approaches the detail in live view at x10. Using tripod, live view, IS off full, aperature, 400mm, full 8 second timer, and with flash sync set at 1/250 using camera flash.

Any ideas? I would say it has to be shake but would think that the flash should remove any traces of this. Have noticed the same in macro using a ring flash and the 100mm macro.
