    A few shots from our recent trip to Tanzania, where my girlfiend was working as a volunteer for a few months. Some still need final tweaks, but put most up on Flickr because friends and family were pestering me for photos. The Safari shots are all the E-M1, and almost all shot with the 50-200 SWD, most with the 1.4x teleconverter mounted. Occasional crops for those subjects who were a little too far away. A few highlights below:

    Love this 'portrait', despite the fact there's a touch of camera shake (ISO 3200, 1/60 sec and full zoom extension at 283 mm, handheld - still impressive for the IBIS in my book - not sure I've embedded the sRGB profile correctly though...)

    Baby baboons are both ugly and adorable.
