I know it is just me, so I need to ask...
I just purchased the Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS USM from bhphotovideo.com and in most aspects (portraits, landscapes) I am more that pleased. I am, however a bit more than disappointed in my aviation pictures, as they don't seem to come out as sharp as the other photos on this site that I've seen taken with the same lens. To be quite honest, they are just poor in quality as the ones I used to take with my EF 75-300 f/4.5-5.6.
Here is my setup:
EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM
Standard UV filter
I currently shoot handheld in Av, f/5.6, ISO 100, AWB, Continuous@5fps, AI Servo. Maybe these photos are how they should look, I'm not sure. But I've seen such great photos here with this lens that are tack sharp with great DOF. I am getting a monopod in the mail tomorrow, ordered it the other day. Any help I can get would be appreciated!
