Re: Sigma 150-600 mm adapted for MFT???

So for the hell of it I put the teleconverter (just a cheap one) on so it is 560.0mm (35mm equivalent: 1120mm) and on a monopod taken at 1/30 and f9 iso 640. Needless to say most of the shots had...

Re: Sigma 150-600 mm adapted for MFT???

Just for completeness I put the lens on the EM5mk2 and used a monopod to keep the iso down to 640 (1/40 at f8 ...as it is still not very bright today...). This is SAF which is slow on the EM5 but...

This is with a budget lens which is OK on the Canon 70D but seems to work better with contrast...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Our Sparrowhawk has taken all of the Collared Doves and left the pigeons. So I have some available if yours wants to travel :-)

Re: Little Grebe in the Sunshine

Very nice. The low sunshine helps to pick out all of the details and gives it a wonderful colour. I usually see them from a hide at full telephoto, so I know what you mean! :)

Re: Megachile centuncularis Patchwork Leafcutter Bee

That is very nice work. The useful depth of focus and sharpness is nice despite (I imagine) a fairly active subject.

It is useful to see the apertures used as I believe I still need to learn to...

Re: Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens.

As an inveterate berry and fruit snapper my thoughts are that smooth, shiny fruits are not the best subject for a focus test. I am disappointed with so many shots every year because of the apparent...

Re: The Wrinkled Peach reaches the mature stage.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Ron never seen the underwing on a curlew before. Really bright, jazzy and makes the image. Always seen them as dull before, nice to see the reality. (and agree with Mark - the Harrier is OK too ;)

Especially appreciate the last shot. I usually try and avoid the cobwebs but on that shot they add to it as do the dew drops. *chr
