Re: First attempt at BIF

I was definitely using C-AF (no tracking), probably 9 point. Thanks for your comments.

Re: Tesni Ward Wildfowl Workshop

Whoops! I forgot one!

Using the focus limiting feature really ups the success rate, Tesni suggested a starting point of 5 to 50 m - this will obviously vary with the environment and the size of...

Re: Bigma

I tried my Bigma on my E-M1 II when I first got the new camera.

If my memory serves me correctly, the lens operated much as it did on my
E-510, it may have focussed marginally faster.

Try the sigma 500f4.5 which is super sharp via a metabones no zoom it's a prime. Don't know if that's to expensive for you. I have also used the siggy150-500 f6.3 Canon version. Which is lighter? ...

I forgot to post this, but I have now used the Bigma with the E-5, and was not wildly impressed:

Re: Duracell BLN-1 battery

Thought I'd measure the voltages after a full charge in the Olympus charger. The Olympus battery had 8.6v, Ex Pro White 8.22v, Duracell 7.93v.

I then used a third party charger with the Ex Pro and...

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

Ah I see, the old "should I/shouldn't I use a protctive filter" debate. :)

Unfortunately for a long FL lens a polarizer is probably, IMHO the least apropriate choice of filter for protection.

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

The polarising filter will certainly reduce the light getting in and if you are in A mode will cause the camera to use either longer shutter speeds or increase ISO.

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

I never use f/8 for butterflies, even with the 300m + MC-14. Of course you won't get all of the butterfly in focus but neither will you at f/8. When I can, I try to shoot from an angle such that,...

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

You shot the picture with f5.6, that's way too wide open for this distance with this kind of lens. Yes it is 300mm, but that's 600mm for 36mm full frame. You need at least f8.0 and may be even one...

I posted a reply but it vanished.
You said you were using S-AF, and this could explain it. Between the half-press when it focusses and the full press when it takes the photo, the butterfly may have...

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

If you are shooting a butterfly at 3m, you need to use a small AF point to get the part of the butterfly that you want to be in focus. I always try to make sure that the eye is in focus. If you are...

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: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

I'd suggest a methodical test process. Download a focus test chart, put the camera on a tripod and do some controlled tests.

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

Have you checked the Release Priority settings (Menu Cog C1)
& - in the case of Sequential Shooting - The Image Stabilization setting (Menu Cog C2) ?
These may be affecting your image sharpness.

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

The 300 mm works great with the EM1mk2 in my experience.
What focus mode and shutter mode are you using.

I use single focus point with C-AF using back button focussing and electronic shutter low...
