    Thanks Louis and Don,

    Considering I shot these hand-held in crappy light, I'm really looking forward to trying it out under better conditions. The sun has to come eventually, right?

    Here's another try at the same woodpecker, but processed a bit differently.

    Well, we had sunshine today, and a high temp of 82F. Michigan weather.

    Got this Northern Flicker (a nice lady told me what it was) this afternoon.

    Very nice, Ron... and gorgeous bird.

    I'm edging toward picking up a 100-300. I don't think I would use it a lot, but it sure would be nice to have for those times when you do want the reach!

    Any idea if the 100-300 is a sharper lens than the 45-200?

    Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    Yes, this lens is fun when you ace the shot, it is a lens that takes thought and skill, not a typical shoot and hit the target every time lens. The lens loves high speed shutter and good light, and it pays off when you observe the rules.

    A few more local bird shots, Rose & Grey Galah's and Crested Pigeons, native birds. Shots taken in Bendigo, Victoria:

    The Conga Line.. look at me, I am so pretty in pink...

    GH2, f/10 @ 67 mm, 1/640


    The Showoff.. his partner looks bored...

    GH2, f/9 @ 140 mm, 1/1000


    Mid range zoom, this lens is as sharp as a tack, and still has a lot more zoom to go.

    GH2, f/6.3 @ 127 mm, 1/800

    Thought i'd try my new Raynox 150 on the 100-300 for a change.

    This is a 20p coin, its about 20mm across, this image shows about 10mm of the coin with a slight bit of cropping too.

    The EXIF is intact.

    Ron... the Northern Flicker images are wonderful... And what a stunning bird. Gorgeous.

    Very cool, Uwe... it's also nice to see some application of this lens to more varied subjects.

    I was surprised how well it worked. Seems the 10-300 works better on the GH2 than GH1.

    I really do love the GH2 ETC mode.

    The shot below was shot through 2 separate double glazing units spaced about 10 ft apart, shot from my kitchen out through my conservatory.

    GH2 and 100-300 ETC S mode @1400mm EFL.

    EXIF intact.

    Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    Hi there,

    I've been following this thread for quite some time now and I'm impressed by the results of this lens. In particular I find the bird shots here just stunning.

    Late December last year I bought the lens but I'm just starting to properly use it on my G1 now the weather is improving.
    One question: do you think image quality will be better when using a GH2 ?

    This morning I found this bird of prey, what I think is a buzzard, dozing in a tree.





    Thank you and kind regards.
    Bart ...

    Re: Fun with Panasonic 100-300

    Whatever the species, its a great shot, with regard to whether you would get better with the GH2, i think the main improvement will be ISO and fast AF, i have a GH2 and G2 and the G2 stand up pretty good in good light and low ISO, even the AF on the G2 is almost as fast as the GH2, but its the GH2 that has the 100-300 on the end of it.

    Nice crisp image and really cool-looking bird, Knorp. Was this hand held/unsupported or? Focal length? Shutter speed and aperture? Sorry for all the questions... just wanting to get it all sorted in my head.

    Thanks Mark for explaining that, perhaps I'd better give the GH2 a try then.
    One thing is for sure, I love working with the 100-300.

    Hi there Don,

    thank you for your reply.

    Lens: 300 mm
    Exposure: Auto exposure, Aperture-priority AE, 1/800 sec, f/5.6, ISO 100
    Flash: Off, Did not fire

    Software: Capture One 6 Macintosh
    File: 1,200 1,200 JPEG (1.4 megapixels, , 0.45 megabytes) Image compression: 89%


    2nd photo:
    Camera: Panasonic DMC-G1
    Lens: 246 mm
    Exposure: Auto exposure, Aperture-priority AE, 1/2,000 sec, f/8, ISO 400

    Another reason I like the 100-300 is the ability to get rather small and shy subjects well framed while keeping a 'safe' distance.

    Great butterfly, Bart. I am from Mokum too.
    BTW I just switched from the G1 to the GH2. For me the big improvement is the one push magnification for MF lenses. And I like the touch focus on the screen too. Did not check out the quality in lowlight yet.

    No crop.




    Then I used this photo as a texture with another 100-300 photo for blending. The chick is partially under the hen I got the feather photo from.

    Thanks Michiel, yes we've met before at LUF.
    Don't tell me you bought your GH2 this morning from Henk Booms, did you ?
    Checked their site, GH2 in stock all looking fine, jumped in the car, drove for 15 minutes and guess what: it was just been sold ... grrr
    Well it must be an omen for sure, or so I like to believe.
    Perhaps I better stick to my G1 and wait for the GH3 ...

    What I like about the GH2 is that it has no annoying little wheel in front of the grip: drives me crazy. But I hoped also for better image quality over the G1, but so far no one mentioned that as a plus.

    Hi Glenn, I'm amazed how you guys get these little critters so well framed, well done too

    So far no luck for me, only static birds ...



    Kind regards.

    I like that second shot, the bird stepping through the water.
    What kind of bird is that, Ron ?

    Kind regards.

    Thanks! I had to look it up when I got home. I think it's a Common Grackle, which is a member of the blackbird family.


    Nice Mandrill.
