I've found that with BIF I get better results with IS off, I am using the Oly 300 F4 though. I...

Re: Amish Family group, Niagara Falls, Canada.

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

The very first time I used the 300mm F4 I was not not happy with the IQ/sharpness so I put the shutter onto anti-shock. The images changed for the better immediately.

Re: Airshow season tips please

I was at Yeovilton over the weekend, the most challenging thing I found was the light, very dull early on and extremely bright at the end.

Re: Neoprene Cover: 300mm pro & Panny 100-400

In general I'm very pleased I bought this cover. When I was shooting Canon I had camo covers for the 500mm F4 and the 300mm F2.8 so I'm well used to using them.

I have only 2 very minor gripes, I...

Re: Olympus 300mm Pro Available.

I've only been using mine for a few weeks but my best results seem to be with using a monopod or on a tripod with a gimbal.

Re: Panasonic Leica 100-400mm F4-6.3

Bearing in mind that I used it on the Olympus body I felt that the IS was only on a par with my old Canon 300 lenses on the 1D bodies I had. Obviously this is because the body could play no part in...
