Nice action in your shots. How do you like the DO lense, autofocus speed ok?

Thank you. I bought the DO when I was comparatively new to this game. I used to think it was great until I started exploring L lenses. I will be upgrading to the L when I have some spare cash! It is simply not as crisp, now I know a good craftsman never blames his tools, but this is simply not the best tool in the box!

Thanks for looking

Fantastic pictures. The last time I shot Gulls, the shutter speed was 1/800. Too slow. A learning...

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks... one of the glories of the 5Diii in my mind - you can push the ISO to get the speed and still have a vaguely usable picture. All I need now is the L lens to complete the set up!
