Hmmm - yes a long-lens shot to be sure [your trusty SX hard at work again] ... although it doesn't seem to have the level of sharpness I would expect from the SX

suggestions for next time ~
a) see if you can vary the background so that the building is not so visible ... ie: vote with your feet and move sideways
b) the image is not showing any camera shake so it might be heavily cropped?? - maybe try to get closer so that cropping is not needed [if that has happened here]

Hope this helps

Hi Phil...

yeahh it was the SX but it was a situation where I was a good 60 feet away from the subject which was in a tree fairly high up, there’s actually no cropping on this one..

thanks for the tips, all noted :thanks:

All good Stef

Every camera / lens - no matter its price - has its limits ... and I have found many times over the years that once a l-o-n-g lens is stretched to its maximum that sharpness can suffer from atmospheric haze, camera shake and just the lens design itself. Maybe you -like me- will have to come to terms with what's okay vs what's not quite good enough [and only show our mates the 'good' ones] :)
