    Has anyone much experience using the 100-300 on an Olympus body?

    I use it on the E-PL1. It's a very large lens to use on such a small body, especially when fully extended. I turn off the in-body IS and use the lens IS; it's much easier to see what you're shooting at max zoom with the lens IS.

    Very impressive detail from this lens. But let's not forget the photographers - some good stuff here.

    You guys are killing me! I only came here via a link out of curiosity. This lens was a small dot on my radar until I saw the images and now I may have to buy one.

    Some really excellent work here - congratulations. I'd always assumed it would be impossible to take any serious bird or wildlife photos as I've never been prepared to carry or pay for the immense lenses usually involved; now I have some hope it might eventually be possible to get some reasonable results. Thanks, I think!

    Glenn - that first jet shot is pretty cool.

    With faster shutter speeds and good support the 300 end of this lens is quite respectable. I've only had mine for a weekend but been quite pleased.

    First shot here is a loon just starting a dive for fish - not a great shot but funny timing.

    Glenn - with the jets as well as your last puffin shot (flying away), were you using AFC to focus?

    In my limited time with the G3 its continuous focusing algorithm doesn't seem to be able to predict the focus of an object moving towards or away from the camera.

    Love the shot of the Red Arrows taking off.

    Yes AFC and burst mode, it doesn't always work, and towards and away are the most testing for contrast detection systems. Keep at it and you'll get some good results I'm sure.

    Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    This thread also inspired me to buy the 100-300. I thought I'd share a few images.

    I lucked out on a fishing trip in Cabo San Lucas in early April. A pod of Humpback's decided to put on a show just for us.

    These aren't the greatest images, but considering I was on the top level of the boat being bobbed up and down, I was quite happy to capture anything at all. These were all taken at the long range of the lens, probably at 300. The extra length and the image stabilization made all the difference from getting, or not getting a shot.

    These are a two captures from the deck of my house. We get some awesome aerial combat action from Redtail's being escorted away from other birds nest, in this instance from a black bird. I just pointed the GH2 toward the sky and got lucky, as they were pretty far up there and moving quickly.

    Hi everyone,

    A couple of Sparrow shots with the G3 and 100-300 shot in ETC S zoom mode @ 1212mm EFL.

    Tweaked, cropped and resized for the web.

    I agree with the others that the first Red Arrows shot is phenomenal. But I also like the two recent sparrow shots: lovely detail.

    Thanks Louis, I'm finding that the GH2 and 100-300 gives great results in ETC mode, presumably because you don't have to use the lens at full stretch where it gets softer.

    I know I should RTFM but I really can't work out how to turn on ETC mode. Does it work with RAW?

    Ah, I had the same problem.. seems you can only get this to show if using less than full resolution in image size. It is inactive when the Large is selected, Medium and Small sizes will allow the selection. Not sure if it will work in RAW, have only played with it in JPG.

    Hi Louis

    ETC only works on jpg. In the Q Menu, select jpg, then go to Menu Set and in the REC sub menu, go to page 4 and select ETC on, then go back to Q Menu, go to the aspect ratio selection and scroll down, there you will see some extra selections prefixed EX and at the bottom of the screen there is a description of the aspect ratio and the megapixel count.

    Great shots every one (Glenn, Ron, Louis)

    A couple of weeks ago I've lent my G1 and 100-300 to my brother.
    Still waiting to get it back

    Now I'm thinking of upgrading my 100-300 ...
    What would be a good option: G3 or GH2 ? Or wait a little for a future GH3 ?

    Thanks and all the very best.

    Yes.


    If you absolutely have to go with just one ... I'd say the GH2 is better for shooting with the 100-300, but I like using the G3 too.

    Hey Ron,

    LOL - so you're suggesting I should get both ? Mmm, don't know about that.
    Terry - just back from safari - had the 100-300 mounted to her GH2, because she found the G3 not providing a firm grip and frankly, I can see her point here.
    But what about IQ ?

    Kind regards.

    Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    It's always good to have a back-up or to have different lenses at the ready.

    The GH2 definitely affords a better grip and is also quicker to make changes in focusing mode, etc. The IQ actually seems pretty comparable, though I haven't done any objective testing. Both are better than my other bodies (G1 and GF1).

    When I'm walking through a park, I might have my 100-300 on the GH2 and either the 45 Macro or the 7-14 on the G3. Inevitably, when I'm walking around with anything other than the 100-300 mounted, I run into something that demands it immediately.

    When I'm walking through a park, I might have my 100-300 on the GH2 and either the 45 Macro or the 7-14 on the G3. Inevitably, when I'm walking around with anything other than the 100-300 mounted, I run into something that demands it immediately.
    Thank you Ron, while biding my time for the GH3, for now I'll have a look at the G3

    Kind regards.

    Though both shots are lovely, that female blackbird (?) holding a berry is a real cracker, well done Louis
