Very, very nice image of a bird I haven't seen or heard recently!

Also, 300mm @ 1/30 - impressive!

Re: Steady Hand of the Year

Here are a couple from Crete, the harbour area of Agios Nikolaos by night. The combination of the E-M1 Mk2 and 12-100 f/4 is ludicrously capable of sharp, hand-held images at slow shutter speeds. Both of these were taken hand-held, standing up and not braced on anything. I try to emulate marksmen by exhaling before the shot, seems to work

This one was 8 seconds, there is movement as you'd expect in the boat bobbing about but by zooming in to the buildings in the distance I can read the logo of the restaurant just above the bow:-



The second one was taken at 5 seconds and looks very sharp even zoomed in:-



Twice now I've packed a small tripod when travelling to Crete and have never got it out of the bag. I'll leave it at home next time

Cheers,

JohnGG

Re: Steady Hand of the Year

Just to get something on the board, here's a treed leopard in the Okavango: 300mm f4.0 at 1/80s.



I have got sharp images with the 300/1.4 at 1/80s in the past, but they're pretty uninteresting: I'm still working on my Botswana shots and I believe I've got some more at that sort of speed to come...
