Thanks for the suggestion Jim.

Unfortunately, EFCS won't help me here.

How do you know that?

My understanding is that EFCS reduces vibration in the camera body,


and more effective for shutter speed between 1/100 and 1".

I'd say mostly between 1/15 and 1/500, but it depends on a lot of things.

The picture was shot at 1/400". Furthermore, the warp effect doesn't look like caused by camera shake, more comments below.

It' looks like it was caused by image motion on the sensor. Whether that is due to camera shake, or a VC problem isn't germane to how to fix it by decreasing the scan time.

Please see the picture in

Looks to me like the issue is slow ES scan time.

You may be right on slow ES scan time. What's the typical ES scan time?

The picuture was shot at 1/400s. (Tamron's) VC causes the warp problem,

How do you know that?

I tested it in M mode with both VC on and VC off. the problem only occurred with VC on.

Instead of telling me why my suggestion is no good, why not at least give it a try? You've got nothing to lose.
