You're rocking that long lens!


Yeah, I'm making a concerted effort to find it's versatility and how to "see" with it.


Then I'll go the other way and bolt the 8-18 to the 5iii for a while. I struggle to understand how best to use the sub-10mm focal lengths, lol.

@saladin Jason, I reckon that would make an excellent big print. A2 minimum. Lovely shot.
Hi John,

I ended up running a similar shot at 20x16 inch.

I think I'll run a copy of the shot you commented on too. Not sure which I prefer, but for varying reasons.

First photo early this morning with the new E-M5 Mark III and the Panasonic Leica 100-400 lens. I had the OIS on and the IS on, so I am not sure which one controlled, but it worked as an experiment at 1/10 second.

Since they won't work together due to mixing brands, if you have the stabilization switch "on" on the lens, that's what takes priority. Switch it to "off" to use IBIS, though I don't recommend that. OIS seems to help more on longer lenses than IBIS.

Thanks. The OIS should have been off on the first picture (with the 45mm macro lens), that likely would have produced a sharper image given the camera's system.

Edit: I just tried the same flower (morning light) with the OIS off. I did catch a red spider mite on the flower.

Excellent result. And impressing quality at ISO 1600.

Yesterday I went to a local botanical garden to shoot some flowers and bugs. To my delight there were quite a number of Zebra Longwing butterflies working over the plants. However, they were not about to land, and continued to flit about erratically........maddening. Finally in desperation, I decided that I would set the camera up like I set my E-M1 III for shooting birds in flight and see what would happen. I was using my now standard bug setup, the 75-300 with a 16mm extension tube which gives me far focus limit at about 15-18 feet. But this time I altered the settings to shoot C-AF, all focus points, ISO 2500 to keep the shutter speed up, and low sequential silent burst.

It actually did pretty well on these flitty critters.......maybe even better than pretty well. In two series of bursts of 18 images, only two images in each burst were OOF and those were near the edge of the frame. I was pleased to see that the C-AF in the E-M5 III was able to keep hold of the erratic movement of these insects..... kind of fun.

Here's an image from one of these sequences, shot from a distance of about 15 feet. First image is the original OOC jpeg without any changes, other than resizing for the web. The second image is the crop from the Workspace converted raw file and run through Topaz Denoise AI and than adjusted to taste in Light room. I'll need to polish up my technique a bit more and adjust my settings, but I'm happy with this first result.

Another series shot with the E-M5 III, 75-300 plus 16mm extension tube at about 8 feet, C-AF, all points, low sequential. The entire burst was 20 images, so about 2 seconds in duration. The cluster focusing followed the insect flawlessly, even with the busy background. Only the last two images failed to be in focus and those were at the very edge of the frame, These are 10 images out of the remaining 18 images (all were in focus but some were uninteresting).

Sorry for the many photos, but not sure how to show the focusing without them......I'm done now!
