    Poor little GX-7 looked like a pimple on the end of this big Canon monster. The 600mm becomes of course 1200mm. Great for, well I'm not sure. Nothing that is moving that is for sure. Anyway it was fun playing around with it. I also shot some subjects that were much closer and it performed perfectly. The normal shot was taken at 50mm using my Panasonic 14-42.

    Wow! That's impressive. But I don't think the lens would fit in any of my m43 camera bags... :D

    Great to see and good on you Eric. If we can use the 500 and 800mm for moving subjects, the 600 should not be too much of a problem. You just need to get out there and have a crack at it. Get a Gimbal head for it, makes life much easier.

    All the best Eric, nice to see.
