To improve a bit focus, you have to move to a pro line, like 300f4 then you can notice the difference.
Thanks for contributing and for your critique. From next month, the grey season starts with long days of cloud and lower temperatures. I was out walking with the camera. We had a break from torrential rains and floods, an opportunity came up for a photo, so it was something I decided not to miss, even though the lighting conditions were not ideal. Has that ever happened to you? I think it happens to most, it’s called a ‘grab shot’

I won’t be moving to the pro line lens you suggest. The 300 f4 is a beautiful lens with excellent clarity, but If I was to get a long lens, I would go for a 100-400 Panasonic. I realise, not everyone will agree with my choice, but it is, what it is.

Have a great day
All the best
