Just viewed on the Samsung Tablet photos from the ONE :)

AMAZING - so fast and simple to upload, screen and delete, them upload the rest to gallery ! :D

Up with the birds at 5am and honored with 13 Goldfinches for breakfast, mostly young and their darker Cardinal red heads and yellow wing tips are so VIVID even in our misty/murky morning light !
used the 75-300 for the first time and IMPRESSED - VERY IMPRESSED - I think this shall be as my 50-200 was on the E-5 FAV lens

Off out to a Battle at Basing house, so will upload photos on return this evening :)

Macro is CRITICALLY STUPENDOUS too with the 60 lens :eek: As I like to take lots of detail in, for example flowers - the IQ is blowing me away just seeing THIS ONE image !

(as it did with Steve Davies daughters portrait - [seen below] - with the E-5) THEN I just phoned :eek: Park and ordered immediately -

I guess I am "EVEN more impressed" with the IQ as I did not use a PEN or EM-5 and experience their IQ a few steps up ... :)


I can hardly wait for the 12-40 lens and 75 to arrive :cool: end October for the Greenwich Foxes Dale, weekend :)

Sigh! I think I'm going to take time off this forum until all this 'One' talk (which I don't have) cools off. I can't handle so many superlatives at once.

Tried a few BIFs at first light, I have a Rookery opposite my bedroom window, and the results are very promising although the light was too poor to give anything worth posting. However I am now off to my local reserve for a longer session so I hope to get something out of it. Impression so far is that CAF is pretty good but I need to work harder to test out CAF Tracking, it seems to jump from subject to background (even plain grey sky) after acquiring - not yet quite sure what it is meant to be used for.

Here are three taken in very poor light very early this morning, all large crops and high ISO;

Not the quality I would normally consider posting but they do serve to demonstrate that the CAF is working as hoped.

With the 75-300mm

Glad you're happy with it, Chevvy, and also that you like the 75-300, as I think I may have to buy that lens.

Glad you like the 75-300 Chevvy.

I have enjoyed mine very much since acquiring it in June.

Very satisfactory results with the E-M5, so looking forward to enjoying it in combination with the E-M1 !

Look forward to seeing your results over the next week or two :)

Happy with the ONE and SRS then?

John, all I can say it "you shall love it" and "its worth the wait" - meanwhile download the big manual and read up on it :) a member sent it to me 3 weeks ago ... it is a VERY good read :) :cool:

David, do you think it was just lack of light or the lens (either the clarity of the optics or the small maximum aperture) that was the major factor in these few shots? I've found the 75-300mm much better when it isn't pushed right out to 300mm but that could just be my technique as I almost exclusively handhold and am rubbish at panning - might be that I forget to switch off horizonatal IBIS as well (E-M5).
