Re: Share your wildlife photography!

"My lens C focuses faster, quieter, and sharper."

 

Your lens may focus faster and quieter but it isn't any sharper.  You still don't understand do you?  Lenses can not be made sharper after they are made if no physical component isn't altered.  Remember you couldn't pick the before and after shot on my "C"?

 

 If your lens had mis-focus you could have fixed that yourself.

A lot less stuff for 2018 but still a lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

No, it is not I but you, who doesn’t get it..  The lens is a focusing system.  It is a combination of hardware and control firmware.

I could always achieve a sharper image by focusing manually.  When the lens was switched to AF, the images were soft.  The firmware update corrected the focusing system.  

As far as your “test” shots go, once again, you don’t get it.  You had posted which photo was taken with which lens.  When I told you that I could not see a difference, that was not meant as a question.  I thought the images were soft, and still do.

[EDIT] As for correcting the lens myself, I did.

That is not relevant. The fact is you couldn't see the difference is.  That is the point, my friend.  My lenses never exhibited the poor IQ of the before shot you offered.  They still don't.  Have another cup of coffee and enjoy this beautiful day instead of sitting in front of your computer.  I am.  Smiley Happy

A house sparrow rested on a limb for a few minutes. The raw file was processed in Digital Photo Professional. A fill Light/Clarity layer was used to bring out detail in the dark areas of the wren, and the local tone mapping layer was used to bring out all of the details in the bird. This was done in PaintShop Pro. Chromatic aberrations were were removed in PaintSop Pro. The image was Sharpened in PaintShop Pro.
