Re: Looks like a 200% crop

Hi sparkey2,

I do have an EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III (non-USM). I went to the river a couple of time with that lens but wasn’t pleased with the results. I took about 800 pictures yesterday at the river with my new lens. I guess a few of them were bound to come out pretty good.

Here is a picture on 100% crop of one of the eagle pictures. Here are two tests I did for front focus. At 100% it looks like the chart starts soft focus at 1 on the back side and 9 on the front side. On the pine cone picture, I focused on the pine cone/needles in front of pine cone. The grass in front of the pine cone/needles is sharper. I took the two test pictures with the center point, spot metering, tripod, delay.
