    Hi everybody. That's my first post at site... I'm a Canon D-SLR and Oly OMD E-M5 user.

    I wanted to try for birding my mirorless. Because of m4/3 sensor size and resolution. Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM and Canon 2x TC III were enough slow for focusing on Canon 5D Mark II. But by manual focus, results were not bad for beginning. Those are first photos from my funny set. (A retro shaped, small body and a heavy enough Canon tele - zoom which includes a converter :)

    That's some very sharp shots for manual shooting! Nice shots!

    Very good photos!
    Very well done, for such a heavy lens on a tiny camera body.
    I love photo #1. It is very sharp, even using a 2X converter and manual focus.
    Did you used a tripod?

    No, I didn't. Photos hand-held.

    I think if there was a grip under my camera, equipmant would be much more balanced.

    Well done.
    I'm surprised how sharp the pictures are, even with a 2X converter (I'm assuming that these 2 photos of the bird were done using the converter).
    At what focal distance did you shoot?
    Are you using the 200mm (800mm with the converter plus 2X crop factor)?

    Hi. Yes I've used 400mm (200mm via 2x TC) and it was equal 800mm focal length of full frame sensor.
