Eyes of the hunter

I've posted some of my images from our recent African trip in melaka's safari thread, but I've just got round to processing some more and I thought I'd put this one here.

I think it shows the performance of the E-M1's IBIS and focus-peaking, and the quality of the 40-150/1.4 Pro well: this was handheld in gathering gloom - 1600ASA at 420mm full-frame equivalent at f4 and 1/15s.

I used the lens' manual pull-back focusing (and found this amazingly useful throughout our trip with the amount of branches and grasses that would otherwise obscure the wildlife from standard autofocusing). I quickly got quite good at using this.

Re: Eyes of the hunter

wow, I can't wait for my 40-150 pro to arrive seeing pics like this (shame I won't have the trip to Africa thrown in though )

A great example of what is possible Mark, thanks

Re: Eyes of the hunter

Well I'd be misleading people if I tried to claim I hadn't taken a couple of dozen others of this subject that weren't shakey, incorrectly focussed, and/or when the lion was blinking or had one of the branches over an eye!

Re: Eyes of the hunter

Great shot through the briar. Don't forget the mini focus point setting which may help in this setting?
