  • New lens is good so far!!!

    I got my lens, just the 75-300 USM III..... Im hoping to learn how to use this one, and just by taking a few pics I could tell that this lens was better than the Tamron I had.... I took this when I had a chance to take a shot.... and it came out rather well for just "pointing" it at the plane.... now I just gotta figure out how to use my camera and Ill have a few shots accepted on here!!! -JJR

    P.S. thanks to everyone who helped me when I tried to figure out what I wanted.... and thanks for clearing up the stupid questions im always throwing out!!!!

    Thats a good shot! Some tips are... i don't have this lens but some general tips i would follow are make sure the aperture is at f/8 or higher and if you have any focus troubles try the center focus point...

    Good luck!

      This is my primary lens for plane photography...I usually shoot in aperture priority set to 5.6 (wide open). If the day is really sunny, I drop it down some to F8 if I can, otherwise somewhere in between. Just keep the shutter speed above 400 and it works great....and you can go lower if you want a blurred background panning with the plane.
      Just play around with it and have fun, feel free to PM me if you want more info on it.
