I've had my F DA* 70-200mm 2.8 for more than three years now and its the sharpest lens in my collection - as well as the heaviest by far. Focussing issues? Check the switch on the lens barrel with has settings for 1.2 - 4 metres and 4 metres - infinity as well as manual and auto.
Good set of images by the way Robbie.

Thanks David, good tip. I'm beginning to use the switches a bit more now.

Day 6
Theme is messy so here is a messy, upside down and inside out look.

Lovely picture. I'm finding myself burning out quickly this month. I'm sure this weekend will reinvigorate me!

Great sky in the last one Robbie - maybe dropping the contrast in the foreground (the land at the bottom) might help to emphasise the clouds a little more - just an opinion

You've got me going itchy for a new toy with these images. Most impressive!
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

A few more days to add in. Its been seriously hectic at work which in turn makes home more hectic which then burns into camera time.

Still going strong Robbie. I particularly like 'Skyward': it is the well balanced colours that make the picture stand out.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

A collection of manual primes to keep me in touch with the pleasures of doing it old-school.
