Re: Blurry/soft action shots?

One other thought.  If you have VR on and are panning with birds in flight, you might put it in sport mode, rather than normal, at least if that is available with the Sigma lens.

There are mixed views on VR with fast shutter speeds.  Thom Hogan generally recommends turning it off at higher shutter speeds, as it may degrade acuity.  However, he might support keeping it on if you find the viewfinder stabilization from VR useful in keeping the focus points on the birds.  I have recently been watching a video course by Frans Lanting on bird photography.  I haven't finished the course  yet, but if I understand it, Lanting generally leaves his VR on in sport mode for birds if he is not on a tripod.
