Like I said on Facebook...I like my copy that I picked up here from this forum...might have to post some of my pictures here
As for the AF, I think it is slower than the Olympus 50-200mm.
Your pictures look great.
i have the newer version with a canon mount using a kipon adapter. Works pretty good and focuses fast (in good light) but one thing I have noticed that at 500mm its somewhat blurry. Up to 300mm it outperforms the 4/3rds 70-300mm olympus lens. It looks to exhibit the same issue with the 4/3rds version as well At other resolutions its perfectly fine.
I put a sample pic here taken at ~100mm
We need more horses in this forum (Image Thread)
I have found that the OS seems to work better than ibis at longer resolutions but its definitely not a handheld lens
I'll wait until I see more from you Ron. Knowing you, you will squeeze the poor resolution daylights out of it yet !! Probably hear it scream from here mate. Going to be interesting once you get up and rolling with it Ronnie. Looking forward to it.
All the best and congrats.
If you were a nuclear physicist we'd have cold fusion by now ... and pictures of glowing gators.
Ha I'll just quote that part for a minute Ron
Just yesterday in the beginners forum at DPR was a guy giving advice ...... you will love this one mate.
You don't need AF at all, you just set your lens on infinity and take BIF shots 200 - 300 feet away !!.
So that was his advice to a beginner !!!
Yeah okay. LOL. I'm never quite sure if I should laugh or cry Ron. Good advice I guess, ha. So just set it on infinity and see how you get on. I keep saying it, we don't buy long tele lenses to take shots from a long way out, they are used for close range shots to get the subject larger in the frame. Cropping you can only go so far, after that its just taking shots of a junk pile.
All the best Ron and that post did make me smile at the time. BTW, turns out the guy was using a bridge camera, super zoom or whatever they are called now days.
Awesome photo! Out of curiosity how far were you from the subject?
I think you and others are right with the distance. A lot of my targets were 30-100m's away. I`ll try to get closer next time!
These are fantastic
Great captures. Especially love GBH Meal 05.
The problem with @Phocal's images is that they give me ideas about how much better mine would be if I bought the same lenses, but ...
