Kingfishers

All taken with the E-M1 MK1 and MK1 ZD50-200mm with 1.4TC. This combo might not be great for birds in flight but I'm very happy with it for birds on sticks!

Thanks for looking

Re: Kinfishers

I like the overall look and feel of the last one best even though the first two are in them selves very fine shots.

Fabulous photos of a lovely subject Dave. As others have stated, the old 50-200 is an excellent example of quality Olympus glass. ( in the right hands such as yours ) Thanks for posting these.

John

Re: Kinfishers

I did once contemplate getting rid of my 50-200 but only to upgrade it to the SWD version. I offered it for sale at around 250 and had no interest whatsoever. Whilst I wasn't too disappointed by this it did get me thinking about the craziness of lens values.

If I were to put this up for sale again (I'm not going to, by the way!) the most I would expect to get for this plus the 1.4TC would be around 250.

What would it cost to replace this combination with a M4/3rds equivalent? Well, the closest available is the 300m F4 and this is >2000. Eight times the cost for 20mm more reach, OIS (not required since the IBIS is more than adequate), faster focussing (only worth having if you also have the E-M1 MKII to benefit from it), and less weight (although the 50-200 isn't exactly weighty).

To me it's a no brainer - the 50-200 stays in my kit bag and I'll keep the money (enough to buy a S/H car!!) in the bank

Dave
