Any idea what lens this was with? Is the 425mm equivalent or actual focal length?
EXIF data shows the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F2.8 with the EC-14 TC...
Which means 850mm equivalent FOV, right?
Must be a lie, though, because everyone knows the sensor in these cameras is too small to produce "professional" results. :tongue:
I always though those were a myth, like the tooth fairy, or the Olympus E-7...
Excellent detail, wow.
The EXIF data shows the shooter's gear as the E-5. Wonder if he/she will purchase the EM-1
really... the internet told me that 4/3 sensors had no IQ.... what ever that means
I've never seen that.....But I have seen lots of arguments that Four Thirds are equal to APS-C though :smile:
You can find some of those debates here in this very forum :smile:

Just a little... What kind of bird is this anyway?
For an old camera system with crappy IQ the lenses sure are expensive :tongue:
Can you manual focus nicely with 4/3 lenses?
And the picture you've linked seems to prove it!
Shhhh....you cant say that out loud here. Ned might be listening lol
I think many of the 4/3 lenses have mechanical linkage for focusing. They should be a pleasure to manually focus, but Ive never had a chance to try one.
Seriously, most users of other systems don't realize just how good Olympus 4/3 HG and SHG lenses are. If the "new camera" lives up to expectations regarding focus compatibility with these lenses, then :43: users are in for a treat. OK, not many people can afford, say, the 300mm f2.8 or the 90-250mm f2.8 constant aperture zoom, but in the UK at least there is a hire service for the full range. Another to try would be the 150mm f2 - quite possibly the sharpest lens ever made.
According to the shooter's blog, it's a Griffon Vulture...
Revelation to me. Impressive stuff!
