    Currently I am using Canon 7D…with Canon 18-135mm IS lens..I am totally enthusiastic in Indoor and abstract photography and I am extremely satisfied with this gear…with 8fps…high ISO sensitivity…Dual digic CMOS processor 7D is really a dark-horse in the race at this budget, i think. and I will be extremely grateful if you kindly inform me about some specific website where I can upload my works and get some constructive guides and critics from veterans…thnx..and take care.

    BK,

    From your stated objectives for your zoom lens, I would consider a 70 – 300 zoom depending on how close your portraits will be taken. There are longer lenses available too. I have a Tokina 80 – 400. But in any case, look for image stabilization.

    As for your second question, I’m not expert but I’ve never heard of a correction factor for focusing except in IR photography. It’s tough to tell not having seen any photos but I suspect that the focus is off for what ever reason. The Canon L series are superb so I can’t see them being the problem. If you haven’t done so already, mount your camera on a tripod and take successive shots, one using autofocus and the other manual focus then compare sharpness. I had some problems with my camera changing focus when I would depress the shutter button so I programmed the camera to autofocus when I pressed the * button on the back. That way, focus is locked in while I take exposure readings or recompose. I hope this helps.

    Tony
