Hi guinness,

thanks for your interest and reply.  I'm trying to get out the door for today's shoot, but wanted to let you know your input is appreciated, and welcome.  I'll find more time tonight to respond.

No worries, BIF is very difficult. I second your pro friend and TC64. I have the lens and tried BIF, firstly, you need bright sunny day to achieve 1/1000s , forget overcast days shooting, seconds, it's focusing speed is quite slow, suppose many OOF garbage. Central point, AI servo, continuous shooting and Back button focusing helps. It is fine lens ,only that AF speed...

One thing I've learned about this, it's very tough for me to get what I want.  More later, Mike
