Re: It's the manual focus

Your problem looks a bit like what I'm experiencing with some of my bird shots, where the body is in focus and the head isn't. The feeder looks sharp, but there's a slight drop off in focus with the thread. My theory is that it could be due to the F4 aperture you're using. It is also the default aperture I am using. I have since "upped" it to F5.6, but have yet to try it out. F5.6 will give a greater depth of field and may help keep all the subject in focus.

Good point about f5.6 - f4.0 is the initial choice because of being out at 600mm.

Overall, the lighting here has been miserable, meaning f5.6 requires longer exposures and/or faster "film speed". Neither are optimal for crisp shots.

Lead me not into temptation. I know a shortcut.
