The 75-300II is often said not to be sharp at 300mm, well here is one at f6.7/1/50th/ISO3200. I keep this as my travel lens along with a Oly 9-18 and this is why. On my 4K monitor there is feather detail all over the chest.

Unfortunately, I cannot handhold the 75-300 MkII at 300mm as steady as I used to be able to ...

Took the E-M1 MkII into work today, as I've found that one of my colleagues has taken up photography as a hobby.

Happened to look out the window this afternoon and spotted a pair of Eastern Rosellas on the lawn.

Received some strange looks when I grabbed my camera, dashed outside, and proceeded to lay on the ground and take photos.... but still, worth it....

Liked how this one turned out :thumbup:

A few local shorebirds around the local lake's dam. Not sure what the Cormorant was doing in a tree; they are usually in the water or on the dam. I'm not a birder but have identified the small waders as Killdeer (easy), Semipalmated Sandpiper (fairly sure), and Solitary Sandpiper (not sure at all). Please comment if you have different IDs.
