    Hello,
    It was my first time practically using PanaLeica 100-400mm by renting only for 3 days. First few hours were understanding and adjusting the lens. After figuring out, I can say that the CAF worked great even though sometimes it failed to track. It’s probably user error. The lens with the body(em1.2) was good enough. Some wider angle shots are with Oly 12-100mm.
    Pictures are processed with Lightroom and some are cropped.

    Thank you!

    Really interesting composition. I'm happy just to get the plane in the frame. You have to wonder what the birds are thinking.

    I was wishing to remove them if I have a photoshop skill, but later thought that it would be still interesting if I just leave them there. I'm glad you liked it.

    I have to admit that a lot of these are cropped. It was indeed hard to capture in the composition of your taste if you can put them in at all.
    They were doing their own airshow!
