    On Saturday decided to try the 1.4x TC for a change on the 500 F/4.5L. Hunted out the Kingfisher and just waited as per normal.

    Been wondering and waiting to see how the E-M10 would go with this set up. Finally I'm fairly convinced, its taken a bit of time for sure and it had to be on the right day with my favourite subject.

    On the dive

    Back with a small crab. Their favourite diet in this particular area.

    Off and about on the hunt

    See ya later

    Another small snack

    When the belly is full with the grab shells they can't digest, they spit it out in a ball

    And a bit of a close up on the way back to a perch

    Caught in mid air with a small feast

    That better do it or I'll just keep going :) At the end of it it all, decided the E-M10 is just fine.

    All the best folks.

    All truly wonderful. The dive is fantastic. Do you have him hitting the water?

    Edit.. just went through all your albums and saw those that you have of their water entry.
    Again, amazing photos and kudos on the skills you've developed.

    I have several on complete dive series, but mainly on the NEX-7 ......

    One series with the E-M10 , not the best, but working on it .....






    So not the best by any means, I keep it as a reference only and not something I would normally post. However, it will come for sure ;)

    in fact, that last shot I'm not happy with at all !! That needs to go into the bin.

    All the best and thanks, appreciate it.

    So 1400mm equivalent. That's amazing quality for such a long focal length. Great pics.

    Magnificent. You've got skills and it shows.

    Btw, my Canon 400mm lens did have a loose focus ring causing focus misses. It's being fixed and should be back late this week.

    Excellent. I meant to reply about that. Yes it didn't sound like it was technique at all. Sounded more like the focus group was suffering from backlash, wouldn't stay where you left it and was springing forward or backward. At least its getting fixed. Did you tell them you use it a lot for MF ?? They might well be able to tune it slightly for that, or maybe not.

    All the best and thanks, more pleased about your lens to be honest. Good news :)
