Bald eagle was soaring back into the sky sequence. Taken with EM1 III + Olympus 300mm F4 + MC14.

The first three images are in original dimension and size, 1/3200, F6.3, ISO800.

Good stuffs! All photos with focus spot-on.
I'm using a Lumix G9 with a PL100400 lens for birding. Thinking of switching to a EM1MK3. May I ask how good is the keeper rate of bird-in-flight shots with the EM1MK3?
Thanks for sharing.

Raymond, thanks for the nice comment, I appreciate it. I have never done any stats, but I say the keeper rate based on focus and sharpness (not soft focus) is at least 70% for me. This is just my rough estimate out of my memory.
From my personal experience, related to equipment the right settings are crucial. They may vary from person to person based on individual technique, etc, etc, but the main parameters are fairly similar.
Another most important factor is the field craft (learning your subject). It has allowed me to get as close as possible with right anticipation as well as being patience to capture the moment at the right time.

I wish I could say that I only took one or two pictures of this thing before I realized it was a fake decoy. I can’t. I only noticed it today when processing the photos. 🤦🏻‍♂️

We're in a 3 day lockdown here, thought I'd try for pet portraits with my cockatiel. Results were.... mixed.

On the bright side, you can say you managed a BIF shot with a 25mm lens!

My pleasure. I don't know your keeper rate with your current setup, but I have seen tons of G9 + Leica 100-400mm lens with fantastic results. If you haven't used your gear very long, I think you should stick to it, my two cents. It took me about 3 month with EM1 III until I landed with the settings that efficiently work for me.
