Another image from the weekend testing of Canon 800mm. The beak is a bit out of focus. This was at minimum focusing distance.


Canon 800mm + 1.4xII on Canon 1D Mark III + Wimberly and Gitzo 1325.
ISO 320, 1/200 @ f8, Evaluative Metering - 1/3 stop.

Amazingly colored sunbird, Sudhir..... yup, the DOF at MFD is very thin at 1120 mm, you got it sharp where it matters though.

I see some sharpening haloes on my LCD.

OOF beak did not bother me that much. Excellent details and great colors.

Welcome Sudhir.
