I was recently out shooting at a different area of my home airport, one that required shooting through a fence.
Basically, I was pressing the lens (hood) up against an opening in the fence and shooting away, with the IS
on. My questions are:
1) I know that, for example, when using a tripod the IS
must be turned off otherwise I risk damage to the lens. Is pressing the camera up against the fence similar to using a tripod in the sense that I risk damage to the lens? Should I turn the IS
off when shooting through a fence?
2) While shooting through the fence, I noticed that pretty much all of my shots, taken at the long end of the zoom, exhibit sort of an out of focus or blurry characteristic. I wonder, could this have been caused by #1 above? Perhaps leaning the lens up against the fence threw the IS
"out of whack" resulting in these poor images?
Thanks for any help,
