That is right :) The only drawback was the number of shots I took that day - 3850 :-(
First selection was on the card -> 800 and then down to 50-60 to publish.

This is something I want to change - to shoot less a more effitientely :)

Nice shot!
@Gidget , how do you find the MC-14 and MC-20 compare? Is the MC-20 worth it for the increased reach?

The MC-14 is definitely crisper, but I find at the close distances I use the MC-20, it is sharp, but not as crisp(?) The printed output shows no difference though. I won't be lifting the camera much for the next 3-6 months. I'm getting ready to have a bone removed from my right hand/wrist tomorrow. Moving my mom was it's last hurrah. 😢

Maybe the MC-14 has better contrast? I've been looking at a lot of images shot with the MC-20 and it seems like there's almost a very slight haze or desaturation when looking at shots under full magnification and low ISO.

Wonder if that "crispness loss" is due to distance with the MC-20? :confused-53:

I find using a HSS flash on wildlife helps a lot with the Olympus to boost the contrast in feather detail. Seems to keep the mushiness or blotchiness in the like colors down too.

Problem I have even with the TT685-O in HSS mode along with a "Better Beamer" is the ISO is still usually very high given their location and also the need to keep shutter speed fast with the 300mm+MC14. I need a stronger flash outdoors perhaps, maybe a Godox AD600B Witstro TTL or Adorama branded one (Flashpoint) for service/warranty as I may craze the flashtube in HSS mode. The TT685-O gets really hot in HSS given it reccycle in about 2 seconds or about when it gets an AF lock-on.

I have done only preliminary test comparing both. Apart from a bit less crisp resolution, MC20 definitively requires more light to work. I have experienced for first time the impossibility of using automatic focus with MC20 installed in 300f4 lens, while changing back to MC14, everything worked fine. With good light, no problem, but getting used to focus automatically with Olympus in almost any circumstance, I learned that the new MC has more limitations.

@c12402 , two questions - what do you mean by 'less crisp'; not as sharp? The second question involves the 300 Pro - have you done the most recent firmware update? My 40-150 is already up to date but I discovered the 300 was not (it is now). If you don't have version 1.5, this is probably why your lens won't focus with the MC-20.

I'm curious about the HHHR mode and the electronic ND filter. Has anyone tried these in urban environments with lenses like th 7-14 f2.8 or the Samyang 7.5mm (lenses that don't easily take ND filters)? Does the internal ND filter provide shots as good as external ones? Does the HHHR mode work for landscapes and city scenes without a tripod in ways that you normally use them?
