    Nice shot. Handheld?

    Have you done any side-by-side comparison shots w/ your Pany 100-300m to see how it compares re IQ?

    Reply to tradesmith45: Yes, blackbird shot is handheld — as is the shot of the lily. Blackbird shot heavily cropped; lily just fractionally. Just got the L 180 so, no I have done no side by side comps. I love the 100-300, just got lustful for a long lens that's as fast as f2.8. The L 180 is very heavy [heaviest lens I have ever used]. Lily shot done with 26mm worth of extension tubes, handheld in my garden, hazy/cloudy day [we are in the midst of bushfires, here in Tasmania at the moment].
