Every time I start to think about Full Frame, I just take the G9/100-400 birding.

Once again, quite frankly:
I had my problems with the PL100-400, and was initially very dissatisfied. Most of the pictures were just rejects.
Of course I knew that with a focal length beyond 300 mm (at 35 mm, this is equivalent to 600 mm focal length and more!), you have to work extremely cleanly, especially without a tripod. But knowing something and acting accordingly are two sides of the coin.
Your pictures here in the forum encouraged me to try harder and learn more. I still produce a lot of pictures that are not usable. Despite Dual-IS blur caused by movement when releasing the shutter, not properly focused, too little depth of field. But I stay on it!
And I no longer see any point in switching to FF. This would not make me a better photographer.

Due to it being a warm day, there was a lot of heat shimmer. It took a while for the heron to be comfortable enough for me to get some decent shots at this distance.

And this is what happens when you don't get close enough - not a great showcase of what this lens can do :doh:

Hurricane Zeta missed us here in Florida (thank you), but every time there is a storm in the gulf the surf builds on the west coast of the state. Always a good time to enjoy some surfers giving it a go. E-M1 III, PL100-400.

This one is from my first time going after some planes landing at DIA and I was all over the place with zoom, focus and shaking... Kinda like it though!
