I think it's just me but I don't seem to be able to get REALLY sharp photos no matter how/what i do with the focus (AF or MF, use a tripod etc..) I'm using the 'standard' canon lenses... i know the L series are really good but HOW MUCH better are they really!?... here are a few of my efforts but i'm quite sure that in the right hands they could be better. Thanks for any advice guys, http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3527/3247240495_3bb905935e_b.jpg http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3444/3247240487_b8b94b762e_b.jpg http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3268/3247169536_e9df121c14_b.jpg This one is particulary a good (bad!) example... the bird was still, i used a tripod, all the AF points seemed OK... what went wrong!?! grrrrrrr!!
