    some pics I took by the river the other day, mainly birds.
    Pics are straight from the camera and no tripod although the pics of the white corellas playing on the swing I had the EM5 on a rubbish bin...
    It was not easy taking pics of the birds as focusing was not quick

    The moon shot was from my backyard with tripod, I have cropped it a bit.
    Any suggestions welcome, I'm a beginner

    I've had the 70-300mm on one or the other of my camera bodies pretty much continuously ever since I bought it last spring.

    Did you try using the digital teleconverter? I recently used my 70-300 with the same set up (MMF-2 instead), and completely forgot to use the feature, so i'm curious of results with it

    no, I didn't even know about that feature.

    Lefty, you have some nice photos so far. I like to use the 'touch to focus' facilty that brings up the size (& adjustment selection) of the focus area for more accurate focusing on the birds eyes etc., especially in the trees.

    The 70-300 lens works quite nicely hand held with taking photos of the moon, because the 5 Axis IS works so well (which should be OFF when on a tripod).

    The digital zoom only does a crop of the image & is a bit pointless for photographs but quite useful for video (which is probably why it is there), but I supposed in the case of these moon shots it would be helpful to see the enlarged shot without having to zoom in to it to check the quality of the shot.
