  • It plays nice on my crop camera. Of course I didn't try 24mm. I am waiting for new 24-105mm L and if I see no big difference at 40mm I'll return the 40mm STM one and keep the zoom lens.
  • That's why I am putting "macro" in quotes, and that's why I am talking about pictures looking "macro-like". I didn't say it is a true macro lens and that I am capturing real macro pictures... But ...
  • Created user review thread Might be excellent...
    The use of this lens with my Canon 70D body (APS-C sensor) is in every-day photography, "macro", portrait as well as landscape photography. Though the MM of this lens does not qualify it as a ...
  • @happysnapper: To answer your questions: it was a calm weather, the strands weren't moving, or not that much that could throw off AF for sure. I am almost always using only the central focusing ...
  • So here few images using my 100-400 L II, all taken from the same place. No PP, all are original JPEGs out of camera shooting RAW+JPEG. Just a reminder, sunny weather, 1/3200-1/5000 s, F5.6, IS ...
  • No air ripples. I'll post some photos this evening (CET) when I am at my PC, both of swans and warblers (I'll post the best warblers pics).
  • Yes, as written in original question, I tried Mode I and Mode II of IS. I didn't turn it off completely because even though the camera was itself standing on the rail, I held it with my hands so ...
  • Well, I didn't take a detailed look at the swans pictures, but when compared to smaller warblers that were soft or blurred the adult swans and their chicks seemed sharp to me. But if I had an MFA ...
  • Created question thread EF 100-400 L II - weird softness
    In the end I decided to buy this lens (I was considering the new Sigma 150-600 | S) and sold my old 100-400 L (I). I must admit I am overall satisfied about the IQ - images are sharper, brighter ...
  • I cannot fully imagine this as very often the lighting conditions change while my shootings. Be it partially cloudy weather (so that you have to play with aperture and shutter all the time) or ...
  • Thank you all for your suggestions. I get your point but unfortunately you don't get mine, but that's my mistake as I wasn't clear enough. The reason for shooting RAW+JPEG is also that when I shoot ...
  • Created question thread Managing RAW+Jpeg photos?
    Hi there! Although the title of the question seems clear and easy, my real question is little bit more tricky. Here the details: I shoot RAW+Jpeg. RAW for better control over when post-processing ...
  • I am using old Canon EF 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6 L USM lens currently and I am pretty satisfied with it. Since I use it 90% of times for birdwatching the 400mm reach is not always enough and I was ...
