those are really nice shots, the red squirrels we have here in the u.s. don't have those comical ears. they look more annoyed than suprised but they are still entertaining to shoot.

Your 18-35 works really well at 35 on the 6d, its about as good as the 35 art in that respect.
Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art is for APS-C only I thought.
Maybe there is a converter... and there is a crazy amount of vinetting...
I just picked up a like-new copy of this lens, and so far, am loving it.u
One the positive side:
1. Solid, Beautiful lens.
2. Image quality is great!
3. Zoom is a huge advantage over prime 300. I can cover home plate and first base from the same location.
4. Internal focusing, and zooming.
On the negative:
1. Heavy, more than a 300mm f2.8 prime.
2. Focus does not seem quite as fast, well vs my Canon 70-200 f2.8, which is VERY fast.
3. Zoom ring requires some effort. You can't spin it with one finger. it's big.
i use the tamron and think its great on either ff or a crop body. its better if you stop down to f/8What focal length and f-stop were these taken at?
The same things were said after the release of the 70D
And the 7D
And the 40D.
And yet - I must be such a lucky bloke - I bought a 40D; and a 7D; and a 70D; and a 7D Mk II, and they all focus brilliantly.
What are the odds?
So let me get this straight, in your minds, it is completely acceptable for a brand new Canon user, to open his $1800 camera and expect to know how to MFA a camera, or even know what it is for that matter?
As a long-time Canon user, I have never had to MFA any the Nikons Ive tested (nor Canons), nor would ever do so with any brand new camera for testing because that MFA would not be the same experience new camera owners would have out of the box. Probably something you didn't think of.
So what do you guys do for a living? Just curious.
So background info, I do a lot of head-to-head camera testing for my youtube channel, Ive done this many, many times, most recently with my 5Diii vs D750, no issues. My main lens is a 24-70 2.8 v2, but I have a V1, and my Dad has a V1 as well. Ran into issues with both BRAND NEW out of the box 7Dii's.
Yes MFA is disabled. Shooting on AI Servo, Single Square, Full High Speed Burst- 10 FPS, Av mode at 2.8, shutter speeds are usually over 1/1000, sometimes all the way up to 1/8000 depending on light. Like I said, this isn't new to me.
Results on the 7Dii's looked as per the image posted, almost all of them, unless the subject is very close. I also did a side-to-side test, both cameras missed nearly all of them.
Tonight I thought it might be the v2 lens, so I grabbed mine and my Dads v1 (24-70 2.8 v1), his 70d and my old 7D. For some tests.
Both 7Dii's consistently missed with all three lenses.
The v2 and my Dad's v1 works GREAT on my 7D and sufficiently good on the 70D, though there were some misses.
If the V2 is working on other cameras, and not any of my 7Diis, Im coming to the conclusion there could be some focusing problems with the 7Dii itself. Maybe not all of them, but the 7D whopped both of them tonight in terms of focusing accuracy with the same lenses they were using.
Ill have to return both of them and I am hoping their replacements will be better.
Just my opinion, if someone spends $1800 on a camera, it should be working right out of the box.
The requirement to have to Micro Adjust a Brand new body, to me, seems crazy.
Ill keep you guys posted, should have the next body in on Tuesday or Wednesday.
