    Took my (Edit: Name of camera removed as I don't want to advertise some American fucking shopping site and someone's gone and updated my post with an affiliate link) to Donna Nook on the Lincolnshire coast. Click through for full-size pics and a 51 photo gallery.

    Arrived before dawn, so this newborn has been shot at 6400iso, f1.8, 1/50s with the Oly 45mm
    _-2-L.

    One of the pups approached me, so I switched to the Panny 20mm compact. I'd switched to force iso200 but it was stil quite dark: f1.7, 1/10s
    _-6-L.

    I had to switch to the Panny f2.8 35-100 for a few shots. This one at 1600 iso to get 1/200s at f2.8 as he wouldn't stop moving:
    _-19-L.

    The light improved, so f2.8 1/100s and back at iso200 (still with the 35-100 lens). It's official: baby seals are cute.
    _-27-L.

    Walking back, now on to the Panny 100-300mm. Shooting wide open at a whole f5.6, so at iso200 it needed 1/25s:
    _-34-L.

    Still on the 100-300, zoomed fully in at f5.6 and enough light for 1/125 at iso200, the mohican:
    _-38-L.

    Same lens, f4, 1/125s, still iso200:
    _-47-L.

    Told you baby seals are cute.

    Just one question - are they weather sealed?
