I decided to take a few shots out in out backyard to work out some issues with shooting in Aperture Priority Mode. I spotted this one potted plant my wife had resting on patio table and took a couple of snaps. I was impressed with how sharp this turned out given the fact that it was in as close as possible. I had been considering purchasing the Canon EF 70~200mm 2.8L IS II lens, but now I am not certain I need to shell out $1,200.00 for more gear. This image is S.O.C.C., no cropping, resizing or anything else. I feel the Canon EF-S 55~250mm, IS, STM lens is just fine sitting in my Canon 80d. Please let me know what you think about Image Quality. Thanks very much for viewing. ) TT Okay, on first attempt to upload, I had to resize the image because it was too big. This was handheld with IS on and sitting in a high back chair. 1/30s,F/5.6,ISO 100, No Fill Flash, Aperture Priority Mode, Focal Length 250mm With Multi-Segment Metering. Cheers.
