    Great bird shots! I especially like the bokeh in the last one. Love this lens (I have one) but sometimes it's hard to get enough subject isolation or avoid getting a busy background. You did very well, kababayan!

    Excellent results! I don't have a lens with this reach yet. These images speak well for the IQ of the 75-300.

    Beautiful set and extremely sharp. I especially like the Blue Heron.

    I have a question and a minor nitpic.

    Are the originals on flickr indicitive of the actual crop or were they downsized from larger files?

    Now the minor nitpick..... a bit of green CA on the top of the snow egret in the second post. Its such a beautiful capture that it deserves to be CA free :)

    The originals are not cropped but they were re-sized to smaller dimensions. :smile:

    I have the original 75-300. Anyone know how/where I could find a hood for it? Thanks!

    Lovely images of these birds. :thumbup:

    The LH-61E is the specified one (that fits the 75-300 M4/3's & 70-300 4/3's lenses) & JJC make a suitable copy of it at a good price (on ebay), but I found it unnecssarily large on the 75-300 (II) lens, so I modified the LH-61D (for 40-150 lens), but the JJC version of it & cut out the centre of one of the attaching lobes & the ends of the other so that what's left will still lock into the 3 lobe catchment on the 75-300 lens. It can also reverse (just) for storage too.

    This is how it looks on mine & is much better in proportion than the specified LH-61E.

    P5143289-s.

    Ross, I like the larger hood. It's suitable to put next to me upside down in the car and fill it with peanut M&M's.

    :laugh1: I like that! Maybe you should start a thread on "101 uses for a lens hood." :wink::biggrin:
