    Thanks, Jorgen. That's the first time this year that I have been able to shoot at a reasonable iso, so the detail has improved considerably.

    Hi guys, took advantage of the great weather yesterday, pics taken with the GH2 and 100-300 zoom.

    Cant seem to keep the EXIF intact since installing W7, haven't changed my workflow, lightroom/cs3 and resized with BDsizer, UL to Picasa.


    Camera: Panasonic
    Model: DMC-GH2
    ISO: 320

    Hi Mark,

    Just an FYI: I am able to see the EXIF on Foxfire but not in IE9 using Opanda.

    Nice clear and sharp pictures of those little birds!!

    A few questions:

    What distance are you from the birds?

    Are you using any camera support:

    IS OIS on or off?

    Cheers,
    Don

    Hi Don, thanks for the kind comment, OIS is on, no camera support other than me, and the distance was about 10 feet, these birds are on a good thing with the photographers who visit and feed them on a daily basis, so we get the chance of getting really close.

    Those are spectacular captures. As we experience more sun here I am lowering the iso and getting fantastic detail in my pictures using this lens. It really is a very good piece of glass, regardless of its price or mount.

    I particularly like the blue tits where the colours of the blue cap and the yellow breast really come through beautifully.

    Here is another I shot on Sunday:

    Very nice Mark and Louis, great shots... you have hit the sweet spot on this lens, it is there for sure. Mid range 100 to 290, just stay away from 300mm, or greater than 285mm as it gets harder to nail a sharp image I find. This is quite common on many lenses though in my experience, even way more expensive Nikon lenses.

    Nice images Mark and Louis... with perfect subject matter for such a long lens. If I ever decide to get into bird images, that's the first lens I will buy!

    Very nice birdshots, both from Mark and Louis !
    I've never had any pics in that quality, even when bringing out the "BIG" cavalery (Nikkor IF-ED 300/2.8 on tripod)

    Thanks, Phil.

    While i agree that the lens is best pulled back from 300mm, i wouldn't say to stay away from it, see my Duck shot @ 300mm wide open below.

    I agree with Mark. A lot of my shots are at 300mm and fully open. Incidentally, I have noticed that the EXIF data often does not state 300 but states something like 285mm. There may be some problem there with recording the exact focal length?

    Mark, you seem to be using SP at 1/1250, and leaving all other settings up to the camera. Is that correct?
    Have you fudged any other settings

    Pretty much as you say, for fast birds i set shutter speed myself and set ISO to auto, my shutter speed really depends on the light, the faster for little birds the better.

    Louis,
    This is an awesome picture! You even managed to use the words "tits" and "balls" in the same sentence.

    I think I need this lens.

    Ron, thanks. You really made me laugh. Especially as my use of language was wholly unintentional. As I remark to my wife each time I identify a bird of this particular family, "honestly, that is what they are called!".

    Unfortunately I was in manual focus mode when I realised this was going to happen, maybe not as sharp as it might have been, taken at 300mm:

    Here's a couple from yesterday at Stanley Park in downtown Vancouver. Both handheld at 300mm, sharpened with Topaz Detail.

    I think I'll get better pictures with this lens on a tripod, but some of that is just me gettin' old!

    Focusing Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    Just wondering... is it just me, or do the GHx cameras have issues with observing the user set size of the focusing zone. I have my GH2 focus zone set to the smallest possible, and yet when using the 100-300 lens I am continually frustrated with getting focus lock in that area.

    All apertures, zoom ranges, on a large bird or object 3 times the zone area size in the viewfinder, it has problems locking or even getting close to focusing.

    Is the area square indicated only a guesstimate of where the camera will focus? On the weekend I missed at least 50% of my shots due to this anomaly. I do not have other focus issues with this camera, and also no issues with my D7000 and 70-300mm VR lens.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    Matix.. The only time i have observed a similar issue is when there is poor lighting and/or the subject has poor contrast. If i miss a shot it is because of rapid movement, which of course is easier to capture with a good DSLR system.

    CP Warner.. thanks for the comment

    I have had the same issues in poor light and poor contrast situations, i think the GH2 will expand the focus area until it can lock focus on something even if its not your intended subject, of course i'm probably completely wrong, lol.

    You may well be correct Mark, although I was having problems getting a lock on this Crested Pigeon, and the contrast and lighting was good. The second image of the Galah also gave the lens conniptions. I got the shots eventually, but missed some of the ones I really wanted because of that issue.

    Phil, one thing i do in a situation where the lens refuses to focus on my subject is to pull the zoom back to a wider FL and re focus then zoom back in on my subject and focus again, this works 99% of the time, but takes a second or two to do it.

    Glenn, you need to add some fat pellets to your bird seed to attract Tits and Robins, they love it.

    Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    You all inspired me to check out the EZ mode on the G1/GF1 today. Not a good day outside so had to shoot from inside, through windows and lower light so higher ISO but was still pretty amazed. I'm not a bird shooter, per se, but def. a bird watcher/lover so lots of feeders within sight and when the weather gets better, 20 acres of our own to roam. We have a nice diversity of birds and small wildlife so this gives me a whole different path to try this summer. I'm using the 45-200 and am not sure if I'll go for the other lens but who knows if I get really enthused about birding.

    I had dled the GH2 manual today and read about the ETC and remembered that the earlier bodies had the capability but called EZ. In over two years of shooting with the G1 I had never tried it. So--I pulled up the G1 manual on my Ipad and found the instructions. Best bird photos I've ever shot and I Will definitely do more of it.

    I think I'm going to choose the GH2 for my upgrade but had decided I wanted to wait until the G3 announcement before deciding. I may be sorry I'm waiting to try and find one under the circumstances but sooner or later I'll get the upgrade body I want.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    ETC offers up so many more opportunities, for still and video, give it a go.

We have a nice diversity of birds and small wildlife so this gives me a whole different path to try this summer. I'm using the 45-200 and am not sure if I'll go for the other lens but who knows if I get really enthused about birding.

    I had dled the GH2 manual today and read about the ETC and remembered that the earlier bodies had the capability but called EZ. In over two years of shooting with the G1 I had never tried it. So--I pulled up the G1 manual on my Ipad and found the instructions. Best bird photos I've ever shot and I Will definitely do more of it.

    I think I'm going to choose the GH2 for my upgrade but had decided I wanted to wait until the G3 announcement before deciding. I may be sorry I'm waiting to try and find one under the circumstances but sooner or later I'll get the upgrade body I want.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Looking forward to your bird shots, Diane.

    Thanks Mark, I will try that, good tip.

    Thanks Louis, for the price the Lumix 100-300mm is a fine lens...just have to learn it's strengths and weaknesses. I do not know why folk complain about the price so much. Comparing it with others I have/had for the Nikon and Pentax it is a really good deal.

    Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    I am simply blown away by the crispness of the lens. Being an amateur and just having purchased the newer 100-300 mm lens as well as the original 14-145 that came with my GH1, I was wondering how you got your bird shots so crisp and in focus? I do not seem to have had the good fortune that you do in aquiring that to my photos yet. Any advice would be appreciated.
    Below is my favorite shot of the Eiffel tower I recently took at while on vacation in Paris.
    Thanks for your help .

    Just got my 100-300 yesterday. Some sunlight would have been nice, but here's my first effort.
