Help, new to SLR
Jan 21, 2013

Hi, I've just bought a Canon 7D and EF 70-300mm IS USM lens. From different suppliers from the web. In my ignorance I was expecting to whack the two together and go off happily snappy away in Auto, just to get the feel of the beast (heavy an'it). But no the results are totally unacceptable.

Q1 is this normal?

Q2 if there is a fault how can I tell which is the culprit.

Playing around with the manual settings things are improving, but not even up to my little Bridge Camera (P5100)

I only have the one lens at present, can't decide on a walk about lens yet. That's a question for another day.

In anticipation, thanks.

This question has not been answered yet.
