I bought a canon 50-250mm IS lens (for my T1i), maybe two years ago and haven't used it much, but whenever I do, I always regret using it. Pictures are blurry, the depth of field too shallow and so on. Here's an example:
I shot this one in auto mode, and it is awful. I can definitely see that some of the blur is from handshake, but the surrounding is extremely blurry. Is my lens broken or is this normal?
I am still learning about photography, and did get a much better shot, but I had to hop on a boat and get much closer.
