Canon have had a 200-400 f4 with a built in 1.4 converter for years, you just flick a switch and it swings into position all internally. Very good but very very expensive.

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

I use a protective filter on mine too but it is a completely clear multi coated one, the one made by Olympus actually because I got a free one with the lens. My other lenses are all protected by...

Re: AF - EM1 Mark ii and 300 pro lens

Puzzling. I assume that you make sure you squeeze off the shot rather than jab the button. Sounds basic but I have caught myself doing the wrong thing many times in the excitement of the shot!

Re: Taylor Wessing Portrait Competition - Yikes!

Re: Quick comparison test with Oly 300/4 and Pana 100-400

"I was surprised that the 420mm image is so much bigger than the 400mm one. In theory it should be 5% more."
