Re: Camera Conspiracies and the EM1x

Surprisingly you can claw 1 stop back in some situations and fill the frame omd mkII 300f4 / owls coming towards you / with the 1dxmkII and 600f4 mkII you often need a 1.4tc even then at 50yds or less it's going to hear the shutter and then veer off
The electronic shutter of the OMD will let you use the 300f4 without the 1.4tc as they often just keep coming towards you this gives far more opportunists to get the shot but as Paul says high ISO will lose out and for me that starts at around 800 iso then i start thinking about using the Canon but it's not as clear cut as you may think as the closer the bird the more detail you get and the OMD wins most time as it does not frighten the birds .
