I thought I would update you as to how i'm getting on! I went to LCE in Lincoln and explained the problems i had been having and asked about the Sigma and Tamron lenses (they didn't have either of them in). They let me play with another lens on my camera and it was much better. They had a spin on it as well as me and as a result i bought the Canon 24-70mm 2.8L lens... Again! However, they said if i had any problems whatsoever to take it back and they would refund or exchange. I bought some other stuff and they knocked a fair bit off so i was well chuffed.
I got home and have been practising with both camera and lens, and put it on my 300D as well. the images are much sharper compared to the initial lens. After experimenting at different apertures and shutter speeds and lighting conditions I have come to the conclusion that I need to hold the camera more steady, but apart from that things are much improved.
I have set my camera up to the settings recommended above and have gone for Partial metering after much experimenting.
So thanks everyone for your advice, I am much happier now!
