I was processing a few shots tonight when I noticed a ghost image on the edges of them, especially in flight shots. I've been noticing this issue for a few weeks now but tonight it was really quite noticable with the shots I took today.
This image gives you an idea of what I've been seeing on the edges of my shots.
So I'm beginning to worry a now. Looking at the exif data it seems to be on the 135mm. Further checks show it also to be on the 400mm shots. By now I'm thinking theres a problem with my camera. I have an additional monitor set up in another small room (long story)...so I switch on the 2nd monitor and duplicate the displays, no ghosting on the 2nd monitor.!!
OK, now I'm thinking theres a fault with my main monitor so I re-calibrate it, the ghosting is still there.
I'm beginning to think I'll need to order a new monitor, but before doing so a quick look online and I find an article where a guy had exactly the same fault. He replaced his monitor cable and the issue was sorted. I go under the PC desk and remove and re-fit the monitor cable. Ghosting is now gone.
Just thought this information may come in handy for anyone else with a similar issue. I went from thinking lens fault, camera fault, monitor fault, to sorted with a quick re-secure of the cable.
Panic over.!! :-)
