Thanks for your observation...I'm set to spot metering but that doesn't seem to give me the sharpness I'm looking for... will try manual focus to see if I can hit the sweet spot..
Metering area and focus area are two different settings, Jeff.Thanks for your observation...I'm set to spot metering but that doesn't seem to give me the sharpness I'm looking for... will try manual focus to see if I can hit the sweet spot..
PeHa, these are terrific set...WOW that very first image. And the Hawk Owl, I LOVE it a lot. Very unusually pleasing to me... CheersSome from the past week, all with E-M1X and 300mm F4 (a couple with MC-20 attached)

It's almost 2 years since I bought my G9, and the PL100400 was bought earlier. I do managed to get some in-focus BIF shots with the G9+PL100400 setup but the keeper rate is quite low, probable less than 40%. Some shots are with the bird in flight completely within the focusing area in the frame but the camera just refuse to focus correctly.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.
