    Why is it that when shooting wildlife, the shots I like the best are inevitably the ones that are just out of focus and unusable...

    :grumpy:

    Because you don't use manual focus?

    lol... one has to love rhetorical questions now and then.

    I think asking us is asking the wrong person. You need to sit down and have a heart to heart with that deer or bird that just refuses to take direction from a photographer... but that's just my thought.

    I am not going to have a sit down with that Grizzly bear that I rushed a shot on 3 years ago. I just chalked it up on me rushing. He was going his way, and I went the opposite. :mrgreen: And left it at that. :lol: When we met, I was close enough to be breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As no way I even had a chance to get away (roughly 40', and I am so slow turtles pass me).

    If they are 'just out of focus', fix 'em in photoshop.

    Out of curiousity why? The 300 isn't that heavy, I take mine on hikes in a small bag along with my 35-70 and I have my 105mm on the camera. Or did you mean you mean you wouldn't take a 400mm?

    Dmitri -- I know the feeling all to well. The stuff i really don't care about is in focus and the shots I really really want just slighty off. I save them for myself, but never dare to show them to anyone else. :blushing:
