This is really a set of images which I hope will show that what all is said is not necessarily true
I went out to the Brisbane Professional Tennis event yesterday but due to restrictions you are not allowed to take anything over 200mm FL.
Anyway I took my trusty P45-175mm as I thought this would be my main lens but I also took one which is usually put into the don't bother category.
As its a manual focus lens, its not recommended for sport but I'm used to manual lenses from was back
I'll Post some images taken with the lens and see if you can figure out the manufacturer/lens.

Images 2, 4 and 5 were taken with the P45-175mm while the rest were taken with the other lens.

The other lens was a Samyang 300mm mirror lens. Much maligned for resolution, contrast and bokeh but it can't be beat for ease of focus (with peaking) and from what I have found good definition and weight. I hesitated to use it but I wanted more reach and I was really happy with how it performed. Also it didn't attract attention as It sure didn't look like the equivalent of a 600 mm lens.
To be honest I was quite happy with the 300mm lens as it had good detail and contrast.

I am in love with my Em1 Mark II. The Dynamic range i love the most when it comes to opening up and recovery of highlight shadows. Processed in Lightroom.
Shot with em1 mark II and 7-14 f/2.8 pro.

Love this camera, especially when used with the PL100-400mm.
Detail and colour that I cant get with any other combination.

that really is a very nice image of our laughing friend (or foe)
Mm. Very Nice indeed

Allan I'm interested in how close you were.
The detail is exceptional and I have times when the feather detail leaves much to be desired and other times not so.
I still opine its the light has biggest impact - well beside settings.

Richard,
Had a troll through the Exif data and finally found that the Depth of field of the 400mm for these images was 0.05 meters and the focus point was 6.06 - 6.12m.
This was usual for imaging Kookaburras for as long as they can see you slowly moving towards them , they are OK and wont fly off.
I had to back off the focal length for several images to get the whole bird in the frame without chopping off the tail.
I tend to under expose so that the highlights are not overexposed and bring up the shadows in processing , this will keep detail in the feathers.
Hope this help, Allan

Thanks Allan. I've never known how to establish depth of field and always realised it wasn't much.
I gather that isn't listed in shorter versions of exif data.

Here's one of Tasmanian Native Hen in good light as I call it.
On other days and in similar pose etc they feather details are more merged.

Interesting your comment re over exposing. I do that when looking into the light, up a tree etc. Mostly I underexpose a third and am happy with results.

This is SOC - no adjustment at all. Not even cropped.
