Re: First outing for the 300mm f/4

Thank you folks.

It is not entirely new to me - I used the big-4/3 150mm f/2 and EC-20 converter for a lot of last season so I am used to the angle of view and when during a game the long lens is useful. That combo is very good quality (the 150/2 is a killer lens), but the new lens is even better and the handling is a vast improvement. I'm looking forward to getting better acquainted with it. The only reservation I have is that f/4 will struggle a bit once we get into the dark days of winter. On one particularly memorable and unpleasant December afternoon I had to resort to the 150mm f/2 with no converter, wide open, and was up to ISO 6400 by half-time.
