    These are nice. I particularly like the detail in the blackbird. Did you have your camera on a tripod?

    Thanks for the comments.
    In answer to your question, all were hand held.

    How did you find handling of the GX1 with a big lens like the 100-300? Lots of people seem to prefer the G/GH bodies when using the big lenses, but I've always been partial to the rangefinder style. The 100-300 is on the shopping list for a future safari vacation... :)

    Well, it's all been a bit of a culture shock. Up until a few weeks back I had a Nikon D300 with a 70-200/f2.8 and a D700 with 24-70/f2.8 but had got really tired of lugging around all that weight in one massive rucksack or two smaller bags. I sold everything and decided to downsize and was worried in the initial drop in IQ which was inevitable coming from such nice gear.

    The lovely thing about going for a walk yesterday was how light and compact, even with the 100-300, everything was. It's less imposing too. I have the EVF fitted which I think made it easier handling the GX1 with the 100-300 fitted. It took a couple of shots to get used to it all but I think it'll becoming even easier through time. Plus image quality was more than good enough for me.
