Re: with a so-so lens at f8 on a so-so day? ;-)

The Tamron 24-70 is just an ok lens, but not great.  I shoot mostly primes (95% of the time), Zeiss and high quality Nikon lens.  With most of the zooms the edge and corners are not nearly as good of resolution as with a quality prime.  I would have shot at base iso on the original posted image and still would have had plenty of fast shutter speed.  I shoot mostly from a tripod, hand holding can contribute to camera shake with normal shutter speeds.  The gray day with the white clouds will not do an image any favors.  I no longer shot birds in flight when they are flyig against a gray sky, they just don't turn out good.  I think I can say that third party zooms are not good tools for any camera especially a high pixel camera.  I shoot raw, so much better than shooting jpg where I can edit with freedom using lossless compression files in 14 bit.
