I'm very happy with my camera and lens as I can see from my first test run that it will allow me to capture the types of action shots I'm striving for... Still struggling with spot metering.. ie; overexposed white spots on black bird wings and also in less than perfect lighting using an extender the iso must be bumped up, here as high as 1600 which is fine in small size but not full size... Photos are also sharper..
Still far better than my D80 so I will just have to learn to seek out good light.
Fun with Ducks (I'm working on it LOL)
Just posting to share and I'm pleased that I could capture so many shots. Thank you to all.
If anyone could comment on 51 point focusing... It sounded like a wonderful thing and the manual recommends it for birds in flight but the reality seems to be that the focus point jumps all over the place... So mostly I used ended up using one spot in the middle...
Also my Elements 9 does not recognize the raw files so does this mean I have to upgrade my Elements 9?
