RP at airshow
9

I wanted to try out the new AF firmware on my RP so I took it to the San Francisco Fleet Week air show. I was using my EF 70-300 F/4-5.6 IS (version 1). It's not the sharpest lens in the world, and its AF is very rough. So I was very pleased with the results I got. This photo of the Blue Angels is cropped to about 13 megapixels.

I used AF servo with face detection. AF locked amazingly fast, and it did a great job tracking the planes. The only issue was when the planes flew behind another visible object in the frame, then the AF would focus on the closer object.
