    I hope to do a better comparison soon but I did a quick couple shots with the Sigma 105mm macro and the Canon 135mm just out of curiousity. Natural light, handholding and wind could have effected the results here but I find the background blur interesting with the two set at f/5. You can click on the photo for more info ...

    I got a Better Beamer for my flash a couple of weeks ago and went out that dat to test it out. Pretty easy to set up and use. Here are a few from that day (I hope a couple weeks is still considered "current").

    Ducks are fast, and one of the shots below is at 1/500 sec Tv and the other is at 1/1000 sec Tv. Both ducks still show considerable blur in the wings.

    All shot with 100-400mm L and 7D... EXIF data can be seen in flickr.

    I went in search of birds in flight today -- you know, the big ones like raptors, herons, etc. None to be found! But you get what you get, and I managed to get my first Belted Kingfisher and dragonfly in flight. These aren't the best shots, but neither is all that easy to catch in flight either! The background on the kingfisher shot is a bit strange to my eyes. Even at 1/2000s shutter, could there be blur caused by the fast panning of the camera?

    Shot with 7D and EF 70-300L. Pretty heavily cropped in (and yet another reason to start saving for a big lens).

    Yes. Here's a few examples of past panning shots of Zuni running for a ball. Press L to go into the lightbox, or choose to view the Large size.

    Much easier to see the blur on Zuni @ 1/1600s http://www.flickr.com/photos/15493374@N03/6457475287/in/photostream/

    If I can get foreground blur, you can definately get background blur, as it will pan by faster.

    First of all, what a look on Zuni's face in the first shot! Wouldn't want to be that ball.

    Second, I can see what you mean. The OOF areas get a bit distorted even with fast shutter speeds. I guess that is what's "off" in my kingfisher shot - even though it's hard to imagine that 1/2000s doesn't freeze everything. Makes sense: with a much larger bird, the camera doesn't pan nearly as fast. Thanks.
