Hi Mike! Thanks, I will try it next time and check the improvement! Your advice is very welcome! Have a nice 2012! Regards

Mike Palermiti


The Canon lens that you used works so much better at 400mm F/5.6. (not stopped down)

DOF and exposure level were not factors to use F/10 either. A shutter speed of 1/1000 second at F/5.6 would have yielded an image with improved image characteristics.

In action photography, higher shutter speeds not only capture fast action better, but preserve the image quality of a lens when the f-ratio is set to the optimal performance level.

I have tested every Canon lens made, and own most of them, and your lens should be shot either wide open or one stop below that for each focal length selected.

Best Regards,  Mike
