    Nice. I hope that bear was friendly because even with a moderate tele you are quite close! A bear can cover ground very quickly.

    Wow, the bear shot is awesome! The first shot looks to need a bit of fill flash. Nice lens.

    You are right about needing a flash but my nephew was enjoying the shade. The kid is always grinning. The bear was about 20m away up hill and the Jeep was in drive all set for an escape. It was hot that day and he was enjoying the breeze. We got about 20 pictures before he had enough and wandered off into the trees. This one is my favorite though.

    I like number 2.

    Often wondered about trying one of these, but seemed as though it would be a bit unweidly on the PEN.

    I guess if I were to choose a lens to have bear chew on, this would be high on my list as a solid choice.
