Hi. I've been using the Olympus 75-300mm ii with my EM5 for the past few weeks and I have been struggling taking good photos of more distant objects. I've experimented with a bunch of settings but I've not found a set-up that consistently works. I've taken a lot of photos I like of, say, butterflies 10ft away from me, but very few of (e.g.) a bird near the top of a tree. I think the problem I have is mostly focusing. I've attached a couple (unedited) photos to illustrate what I mean. The cormorant in the first is a good example of what tends to happen in my photos at this range: it is not sharp. The second is better but still I feel it's not sharp enough either, particularly the head. It's not, for instance, a photo I could print out and appreciate -- irrespective of its artistic merit -- because the bird doesn't have enough detail. I'm not sure if I'm expecting too much from this lens, but then I have looked at other users' images on the showcase thread and they're often very good at are comparable distances. If anyone could give me some tips or a good set-up for using this lens, or even look at my photos and see where I'm going wrong, I'd be very grateful.
