    Thanks all for the help, it’s overwhelming and appreciated, I have a spare day before I have to leave so I’ll be sure to nip over to the local wildlife trust and try it out, As far as the tap in console is concerned I’d be intrigued to see if this would fix any glitches there may be or maybe a...

    There’s no filter on the lens at all, I haven’t tried the tap in console but I’ve been reading about them They look very complex but they’re £75 Will this help solve the issue ? I need to find a one that’s reasonably priced as the sigma dock is only £30 which is affordable unfortunately it’s not...

    I Have been looking at the Sigma Alternative and I can get one for £779 sold by amazon, I think I should get at least £750 for the Tamron if I decide to go that route ? Cheers

    Cheers, I’ll get the crops up later But I’ve tried again whilst i had a spare minute And it’s starting to bug me very much Even in good light it’s still soft and blurry I’m watching the indicator in the viewfinder and it seems like it’s constantly skipping focus from front to back then the...
