    Photographed in my fornt yard with the aperture wide open. This thing is in pristine condition and I'm impressed!! Can't wait to use it more.
    It was mounted to my EPL2 for this shot:

    Of course, we want to see what it looks like on the camera. Where'd you find it, by the way?

    Very nice sharpness and bokeh. It looks like the E-PL2's IBIS worked well if you hand held the lens at an 800mm equivalent.

    When I see images like this, I'm always tempted to adapt my longer Canon lenses to my E-P3, but then I remind myself that that's why I still have the DSLRs. Of course, not even my 40D with the crop sensor can match the magnification of a m43 body.

    I have my 7D with a 400 5.6, I really did this because I can tug it along and maybe shoot fairly stationary objects. Its a beautiful piece of equipment, was only 250.00 on EBAY

    Very nice picture.
    I would love to see a pic of the lens mounted on the Epl2.

    What mode...

    I just rented one and wanted to see what mode is best to shoot in. I know f value is uncontrollable but still wanted to see what mode you were in.
