Cedar waxwing, which is a new bird on my site list, and there were 7 or 8 of them flying about today, possibly courting. Mrs. Darmok was very excited. She's always wanted to see one!

Excellent shot. Do you find the EM1.3 faster or more accurate to focus than the EM1.2 with native and/or adapted lenses?
EM1.3 has better color science thats for sure as i get true white's in AWB compare to all other Oly bodies include the EM1X.
About the C-AF its a marginal diff between 1.2 and 1.3 which Personally i would not consider an option to upgrade but yes i did upgraded to em1.3 and i do have em1.2 as well.

Adapted lenses i have used canon 500 and 600 with / without tc and I have found that i am liking its rendering because i can get 2x crop already while taking images . It has its own con's like AF one has to work only S-af and that too on limit as you can not get action unless you have steady hands and bigger bird to catch in flight or a slow moving bird can be achieved like cranes / pelicans / partially bigger eagles in soaring mode or some bigger ducks or owls but song birds or mamals in rapid or erratic movement action will be a miss in s-af.

I have been testing the native 300 with em1x this days on local bird sanctuary lake but in our part of world bird photography is not that easy and one has to fight with distance shots .. Plus heat in atmosphere very early in day and stay till evening .


My general evaluation for myself or my own experience if the bird is in a descent range s-af gives super results with native lens like 300/f4 .. c-af is a 50-50 chance as in limited low burst 2-3/10 frames can be usable having fine feather and bit of processing is also required.

Hope this helps.

I took this one a couple of years ago and just processed it in darktable. I didn't find C-AF that reliable with the 300mm f4 pro and there were only a few keepers. I guess this was one of them

Several really very nice images with that EF600 lens, congrats! :thumbup: But I can't stop wondering why you are using both a .71 adapter and 1.4 TC combined as they will cancel each other out and adding more glass (which is generally to avoid). Wouldn't it be better to just use a straight open adapter and skip the TC to get the same focal length or keep it to get even longer reach? (Excuse me if you've had this question before , couldn't find it in a quick search :) )

Since the gyms are all closed here during the lockdown, I'm thinking of getting an EF 600mm f4 to work my bicepts
