    Some really good stuff appearing. So good I may not sell my GH2. But the reality is I don't needs a K5 and a GH2. However, reality is a perception based on a personal viewpoint. Excuse that I'm having a serious internal dialogue here

    Obligatory cat picture... this is Newton, shot handheld with the 100-300mm @ 300mm. PP in ACR, Topaz Detail, Viveza 2.

    Lovely lens. Absolutely amazes me that we have a 600mm f5.6 equivalent lens of this quality at this price and weight!

    Cheers,

    Ok the cat did it; cannot resist any longer so I went out and bought one. Consider me a new member of the 100-300 club.

    It's unfortunate that you can't shoot sports with the GH2/100-300 combo.

    Yes it really is a pity, Ron.
    Must have been quite an ordeal for your son to completely stand still while you were taking his picture.
    But you have to tell us the trick with the ball, how did you do that ?


    Great shot !

    Hi there Jorgen,

    I'm not sure about the G3 (yet), but you won't regret the 100-300 though.

    Thank you and all the best.

    Is that in Eye's-ac Newton.
    I'm contemplating selling my GH2, when it comes back with a new sensor but all this 100-300 stuff is starting to change my mind. I guess the answer is stop looking

    Yes, stop looking :-) I have a similar dilemma and have 'decided' to sell the GH2 in favour of the K5. Instead of polluting this thread I have sent you a PM to ask why you are thinking the same :-)

    @David: great cat shot: a bit scary though, but then I'm allergic to cats ...

    @Ron: excellent series, your bird shots never seize to amaze me.

    @Lee & David: Why are you guys wanting to sell off your GH2 ?

    Kind regards.

    Yes, this is a working wind turbine !
    I think I missed focus on the people, but given the strong wind, difficult light, hand-held at 300, well ... not too bad

    The composition simply couldn't be improved upon. Bravo!

    Would look incredible as a B&W too.

    Thanks Bart!

    I had some good luck yesterday with a Great Blue Heron. I photographed him from several different locations within the park. The first shot is about the closest I've ever been to one ... about 25 feet.

    All with the 100-300 on my GH2.

    This thread is full of great images. I really wish the NEX cameras had as many lenses as the micro 4/3...and that they were as small...

    @Ron: beautiful shots of that heron, you had some good 'diffuse' light.

    @Amin: and a good start it is, I'd say. Cute rabbit and a sweet portrait !


    All the very best.

    Hi there Glenn,

    well your beautiful puffin shots are certainly SUPER ! The first one is really gorgeous.
    Great too, to see them with their catch, sand-eels I think.
    Are you on the isle for pleasure or for work/study ?

    Those images are great Ron, I tried for years to get a good shot of the red wing blackbird, they are quite nervous, older film Nikon that was the problem maybe? ;-) They are all great shots, you have done well with kit.

    Thanks Phil! Those blackbirds are tough to shoot. They're usually just overhead, with the bright sky behind them. I was following one around today, without getting a decent shot of him.

    Here are some from today.

    This thread just gets better and better. Perhaps one of the least expected successes of the Panasonic range, is this lens good value for money, or what?

    The comments about this being a 'crappy' lens came primarily from someone who hadn't used it himself. He made a number of comments without any basis in experience.

    I've had the lens since November, and it's a keeper. I'm taking it with the GH2 on a trip to Kenya this fall, when I'm going with a number of other photo types with equipment such as Nikon D700 and 200-400/4, and Canon 1DsIV with 300/2.8 and converters. I also have some longer Canon lenses and various full frame bodies to attach to them and have shot with the above combos, but am choosing to use the GH2 with 100-300 and some other compatible equipment. I don't think I'll regret my choice.

    I agree on the quality of this lens. At the time those comments were made, there really was not alot of out in the field customer shots. Now, with the shots on this post alone you can see the quality of this lens.

    Glenn, your Puffin shots are awesome. I agree about getting familiar with the lens to get the best out of it. You certainly are!

    Great shots. Genn what body are you using? Coming from Canon 1DsII I find focusing with my E-P1 a bit confusing compared to traditional DSRL focusing. Keeper rate is ok but I don't feel I have total control of the system.

    Hi Hrannar, I use a G1 body and I know exactly what you mean about not being in control of your system, that's why it is important to take loads of photos in as many different circumstances as possible, to find out what works. It isn't easy!!
