    I just took a few pictures of the Space Shuttle Enterprise on the Hudson River using the Zuiko 75-300. First test of this lens.

    Very cool! Nice sharp shots. Is the lens as good at 300 as at 200? I love all of the folks standing on the ferry and at the Statue of Liberty.

    Where were you standing to shoot these???

    I was on my building's terrace (10th floors above ground). I used a little Gorillapod to help me to stabilize the camera, but the IBIS was incredibly helpful when I was framing the shots.

    If you check the pictures at the original size, you can see the damaged wingtip. It was painted black for the occasion.

    I can't talk about the sharpness at 300 and 200 yet. I will need some time to compare the shots. I just got this lens less than a week ago. I am glad I had such a wonderful subject to test the 75-300.

    New York is awesome sometimes. :)
