    These aren't 100% crops though - these are the typical 25% or so scales. Again, very little PP - noting at all invasive - no need to.
    Very nice! What is the significance of "IIRC"?

    Sure, no problem:

    It's smaller, handier, and lighter weight than it appears. The deep lens hood gives excellent protection to the lens and excellent protection from flare with no vignetting.

    Don't know what OM macro has to do with it. This is a Konica lens.

    Oh, you could! I'm not very good and I can. And you'd have to anyway. Well maybe not with a 100mm but with anything longer than that and/or smaller/faster birds AF just will not work - any camera with the equivalent FL. Maybe if you practice your arse off with a Wimberley gimbal head and your camera's tracking is the best in the industry then... But typically AF is a no go. I've heard many BIF shooters say the same thing too. My only wish in that the GH1 had 7 to 10 FPS in continuous mode! Then I could focus and also get enough frames/poses to have a nice selection! 3FPS with a max buffer of 3 shots sucks MAJOR nuggets!

    Here's the GH1 with a FD 300 F/4L @ F/4 ~ F/5, manual focusing, manual tracking, manual exposure, all shown here at 90% ~ 100% cropped:


    Jump out and hover for 0.8s





    Extreme Diving





    Landing after missing a fish. (you can tell he's pissed!)





    Landing after missing another fish. (I could almost hear him cursing.)





    The Takeoff.





    Taking aim.





    Target Acquired!





    Success!





    That was yummy!





    Going for seconds!


    I was down there again today too. There were 8 other guys shooting this little fellow. At around 4pm we all got together for some coffee and showed each other our results. Of the 9 of us all were manually focusing except one. The manual focusers all had 20 to 100 excellent shots. I had 17 - but I don't think they're excellent... they were in focus and the bird was in frame at least (about like these above). The AF shooter was using the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0 L USM Lens on a 1.6 crop body. He had one in-foocus shot from 5 hours of shooting - though I dunno how many total shots he took. It could be that he only took one LOL but I'm pretty sure I heard his 6.5fps camera go off at least half a dozen times - just near me. I took a total of 26 shots of the king fisher but 9 of them were kinda like this (Next post):

    Thanks!... No applause necessary, just send money!

    Seriously though, it's all the lens. I'm not very good, a lot of birders make me look pretty bad - really.

    Just imagine what these would look like if I were using something like a Canon 500mm L lens instead of the 300mm. Then I could post 40% ~ 60% scales that would look MUCH better! Someday when I'm all grown up and rich I may have one.

    I think if tomorrow is a nice day I'm going to try my Sigma 400/5.6 and see how it does.

    Oh. The lens used on the E-5 to photograph the E-1+Konica 40mm was a Zuiko Digital 50mm f/2 Macro, not an OM System lens.

    I don't have any OM System lenses.

    Thanks Godfrey!

    It's just a bunch of fun! Panasonic/Olympus did a good thing in creating a camera with such a short (shallow) flange distance (depth) without a mirrorbox! It allows us to make use of all the wonderful glass that's been created since almost the very beginning of photography - on a decent enough imager!

    Fun! Fun! Fun! I'm just having a lot of fun with this thing!




    Here's two more from me (posted in another thread as well):






    Sigma 400mm f/5.6 @ f/8, 1/100s, ISO: 500, Camera: GH1





    Sigma 400mm f/5.6 @ f/5.6, 1/125s, ISO: 500, Camera: GH1

    Hi Tesselator,

    The IQ of your Sigma 400mm f5.6 lens is amazing. Looking at the bird's eye, it is incredibly sharp. Speaking of Sigma, Steen from Copenhagen has posted wonderful images taken with a Sigma 10 - 20mm lens in the Nikon thread. Steen's superb images convinced me to purchase a newer version of the Sigma 10 - 20mm lens. I have been most pleased with my new Sigma superwide angle lens. Best regards,

    Woody, your portraits from your side of the globe is a great inspiration, and a fantastic contrast to the reality I meet around here.

    Here's one from a five hour bumpy train journey on hard plastic seats in tropical heat.

    Hi Tesselator,
    Many thanks for your kind comments! From time to time, I try to include images or words that may be relevant for some of our contemporary global concerns or issues (e.g., "Zero Emission", etc.). Having said that most of my other images are purely for fun. Best regards,

    Here is one of my brother's calico cats. G1 + Helios 58mm f2.

    Thank You Godfrey.....I had forgotten how nice that camera was....really not nice but great! If only they had kept the concept and just added the bigger sensor and LCD!!

    I don't see how they have changed the concept at all. The E-5 in my hands feels very much the same as the E-1. The obvious change is the far better, bigger, brighter viewfinder which necessitates a larger reflex hump (as well as the pop-up flash which is used to do the dedicated wireless TTL protocol). Otherwise, the two cameras are much of a same-ness and remarkably similar in size and ergonomics. To me, anyway.

    I like working with the E-1 and think it's a classic, but there's no doubt that the E-5 is a superior performer in every possible way that matters.

    Fun with the E-5

    Today, Christmas morning, my usual Saturday walking and breakfast group managed to find an open cafe to meet. At the end of a very noisy breakfast, I snapped around the folks still remaining with the E-5 and 25/2.8 lens as if it were a point and shoot camera ...


    Just fun. The beastie is quite handy like this. :-)

    Happy Holidays to all, and to all a grand new year to come!
