Does anyone have experience in using the D500 with the "new" 80-400?
- How fast does it focus?
- How accurate is the focus on a. acquisition and b. keeping focus?
- Is there a difference in keeping the subject in focus at 10 fps vs. -say- 7 fps?
I find my combo delivering decidedly soft results, quite different than when using the 16-80 on the D500. It MIGHT be down to calibration issues that can be solved with AF Fine-tune but I don't have the means, knowledge and experience to do that myself.
In my experience, the 80-400 can struggle somewhat acquiring focus on my D800, especially when the subject is flying towards me. The subject being jets at airhows BTW.
The softness isn't the result of camera movement, I used 1/2000 to rule that out. VR was off, BTW
