Re: Hi Michael.........


I was using this combo on a monopod shot in Manual mode with auto ISO on. Focus was set to AF-C, using just the single center focus spot due to the f8 focusing. I was shooting in C-H mode, with focus priority set to release.

All of the Reddish Egret shots were at 1/1000 @ f8, with the exception of 1 which I shot at f10. ISOs ranged between 600 and 1400, and VR was off. The Wilson's Plover exposure was 1/1250 @ f10, ISO 1400.

VR was on for the Marbled Godwit photo. The exposure was 1/320 @ f10, ISO 250.

Hope this helps.

Michael E. Clark
