I noticed that not all photos here have been taken with a MFT camera.
Well, I had a pre-MFT time as well.
Here is a shot I took with a Nikon J1 (crop 2.6) and the 55-300 using the FT1 adapter. So focal length equals to 780mm

Another shot using the Nikon J1 with FT1 and the 85mm macro, (FF 221mm)
In my believe the Nikon 1 was a very promising system. This shot is 8 years old, 10MP on a tiny sensor.
Unfortunately Nikon did not improve the system, but started squeezing more unneeded MP on the small surface, thus ruining IQ.
That was the point in time when I ditched my Nikon stuff and moved to MFT, as I always have been looking for "something small".

I always though that the Nikon 1 70-300 was a pretty impressive lens. I have seen some really great birding results from that lens.

here's one I took today (yes, I am bored in lock down but it could be worse, it could be lock up!) Anyway I used the 40-150mm w/2x TC and 26mm of macro ext rings + flash. It was an interesting exercise.
I also played with Oly Workspace and the PC Raw conversion which was interesting as well.

My son found this subject walking around in the garden and brought him to my home office, which is also the home studio. He was kind enough to pose for a few pictures.

All were taken with an E-PL5, Oly 45mm 1.8, and DCR-150. Some are obviously heavily cropped.
