    Thanks for posting this Phil, what's your take on AF for plane in flight?
    I am sure the 40-150 can deliver great images, and your samples prove it once again, I think many of us would like to know how much the AF can compete with DSLR for airshows, mororsports or the like.

    MassimoFoti.. unfortunately the 40-150 is my friends so he used it for all the action shots. Also he has no experience shooting airshows/motor sports and this was the first time with the lens. I will say that on the second day he took off the 1.4TC and the images were a lot sharper. The combination of the 1.tTc and 40-150 did not yield good results. See the Sabre and red F16 above.
