I saw the landing of this "bird" in Scotland with your Pandas for the next 10 years. I bet your 100-300 will get some use with them in the future.

I expect it will Diane, but I'll wait for the rush to die down first!

Nice one, Louis!

Most of the birds I've seen around here lately are in the frozen food aisle.

Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

Just a couple more to keep the thread going. The common house sparrow is now on the endangered birds list in the UK as the population has been mysteriously depleted over the last twenty years. They are now so rare in the garden that I've been trying to photograph one for the last couple of weeks. I got these two after a two hour stake out in my back garden.

Very nice, Louis !
Sparrows become rare here in Belgium as well, but they are not (yet) on the list of endangered species.

Hey Louis,

Bart and Glenn, thanks for the positive comments. Proof of the old saw "its the camera you have with you" that gets the shot.

Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

Bart, that is a breathtaking shot. The sharpness, control of depth of field and colouration are excellent. If someone told me that was taken with a m43rds camera and a relatively cheap lens I wouldn't believe them.

Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

Louis,
thanks and really I couldn't be more happier than with this 100-300.
I did fine on the G1 and now even a tad better on the G3.
However for handling the 100-300 the G3 is a disaster, IMO it just lacks a proper grip.

Kind regards.

Hi there Ante (is this correct ?)

Welcome to this wonderful forum, I'm sure you'll like it here

You have a lovely set for a first post with the 100-300, excellent.
My favorites are the berries, the deer and (I'm not joking) the village.
The village shot is really lovely: fine colours and tack sharp.

Thanks for sharing and kind regards.

Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300



I've been trying to get a good capture of this tiny little bird which has taken up residence in my front garden. The Wren has a beautiful and surprisingly loud voice for such a tiny animal. A few times I've managed to get this bird in my viewfinder but it normally whizzes off again before I can get a good shot. Today it was parading on the iron railings of the next door neighbour's house with some foliage in its beak. I don't know if this was for nest building. It stayed long enough for me to go back inside, get my camera, power up and set the aperture and speed and then fire off about 5 frames on continuous. This was the best.

Wow Louis, you must be really proud of this shot. Wonderful !
This lovely little Wren is a corker !
And that it is holding moss in its beak is a super bonus.

Kind regards.

Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

Hi everybody !
I am "new" here, "new" because I never wrote before but already read and learn a lot thanks to one of the best forums I found for 10 years, yes ! sincerely !
Coming from Canon with VERY BAD AF experience from 2004 (10D) to 2008 (5D), I became a Sony A900 shooter in 2009.
And now, apart my Sony gear, I am proud to use a new toy named OMD EM-5 :-)
My first and currently only lens is the 12 mm f2 which is in fact a double lens...
A 24mm equivalent in the "famous" FF 2x3 world (but with more information up and down...) AND a 35 mm when I use it in 1x1 ala Hassy ! (yes, I have a "little" problem with 2x3 format...).
But it is now time to add some brothers to the family.
Tomorrow, I will order the Pana 12-35 f2.8 + the Olympus 45 f1.8 without any hesitation.
But until a few minutes I had a doubt concerning the Pana 100-300...
Here we are !
Doubt because many samples on the net are "so so" as my Japanese friends say, after 250mm.
But suddenly appeared Knorp images !!! Is it possible ??? Are they really coming from a 100-300 at more than 250mm ???
Coming from A900+Zeiss 135f1.8, I know what means crisp picture, and ALL of yours are SOOOOO crisps !!!
So I created an account here today to ask you : are you really using a Pana 100-300 ?!!!
But just a second before writting, on page 7, I think I finally understood... Apart your obvious talent, you are using Raw files AND Capture One !
Not saying that other images are bad but yours have something special in terms of micro contrast and maybe also colour.
So now that I am here, I change my questions :-)
After buying my new lenses including the 100-300, what kind of post processing do you guys use to edit your M4x3 photos ?
And to Bart, could you confirm me (us) that Capture One is one of your "secrets" ?
Last question to Bart, taking for example the impressive photo of the lion (it is the month of the lion :-), at 300mm as it is written in the exif could it be possible to post a 100% detail of the image please ?
http://www.xs4all.nl/~bdevires/Image...4/P1030457.jpg
Again, thank you all for the level of this forum.

Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

Pascal

I suspect that nearly all of us here are shooting in RAW and then processing in something like Lightroom or similar RAW processors. In fact I find the Panasonic RAW always a touch too unsharpened and noisy so I tend to spend most of my energy sharpening and reducing noise. Then I finish off in Photoshop for final curves adjustment and on occasion more exotic processing in layers to capture as much detail and 'pop' in the picture as I can before resizing for web.

The 100-300 is imho one of the best value lenses of all m43rds lenses. It has its flaws but its reach is enormous and stopped down it is very sharp.

I would also like to say that IMO the 100-300 is quite excellent.

Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

Although I took this in late July I was fairly certain these were recently fledged Starlings. Either way they were very hungry and spent a lot of time 'attacking' the fat balls I had in a feeder in my garden.

Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

I've bought this lens for casual wildlife shots on my OMD. Small, relatively light, awful zoom creep (infuriating - how difficult would a lock switch be?) bad CA (inevitably as it's an m43 lens: so I shoot RAW, pp in LR4) soft as hell at the full 300mm and very hard to get a hand held sharp shot even with IBIS at this length. But what else can you get to carry around easily at the price and FL range? However I will say that I'll never again complain about my (since sold Sigma) 150-500 which is a far better lens, stopped down a bit, though with poorer stabilisation.
I was going to insert an example at 300mm but no direct upload...

Hi there Roy,

I'm sorry for your unfortunate experience with this lens that many regard as a fine tool providing excellent results.
Anyway, perhaps you like the Oly 75-300 better ?

For posting photos you need something like flickr or pbase or a web drive.

All the best.

I can't agree that it is "soft as hell" at 300mm. I suggest you return yours and try another copy. My results even at f5.6 have been very good and if I am unhappy I find that I can sharpen up raw images to taste in LR.

The lens image stabilisation is worthless below 1/125 in my experience unless you are using a tripod.
