    I'm not sure cosinaphile. I use a tripod and turn vr off.
    On second thought, I think not as there is no electrical connection to the camera.

    You are correct the VR is off as there is no connection

    long shot but I was wondering if you've tried fourthirds ZD 70-300mm and if so how does it compare to the nikon lens.

    Well of course I didn't mean I had taken a picture of the Nikkor and the G1 with the G1. Only the bird and the moon.

    No, I meant the G1 was mounted on the Nikkor, not the reverse.

    Bokeh D

    Oh, I get it now. :biggrin:

    et100 I don't have the ZD 70-300mm so I can't compare them.

    I think the G1 (or any other mFT camera) and the 80-400 build a good team. I do not own that lens, but was able to use one of a friend for a few images. I was amazed about how well that worked.

    Here is one example, the whole image and a 100% crop:

    I did not use a tripod for this, since the G1 has no mirror shake a rest of the Nikkor on a rail was enough stabilization.
