An excellent, detailed shot of a largely neglected bird, Tord. I suppose the E-5, 300mm f2.8 and EC-14 is the ultimate combination of four thirds equipment.

Purple swamp hen enjoying the Canberra wetlands this afternoon.



A Little Cormorant have a sunbath - 29 degrees and no wind. Perfect. Heavy crop.

Somewhat seasonal as there's no leaves on the tree. Downy Woodpecker.



The North American equivalent of the European Lesser Spot. Fairly typical view, if they're not on a feeder they're up in a tree. This one could be waiting for the bigger Hairy Woodpecker to vacate the suet feeder.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Well I intended to post a few bird images but after 30 minutes of searching I still do not know how! My images are .jpg which seems not be be allowed as attachments, and they are on my own pc not on a web site. No problems with dpreview, flickr and the like. Maybe I will just go back to sleep.

Copy the BBCode on Flickr at roughly 1024px for landscape format images and paste here on the forum.
Hope this helps

Attempting post from Flickr.
Three from yesterday, Cormorant playing with a fish. E-M1 + 75-300mm
[I hate the lens, maybe I have a bad copy. Maybe I'll get a Metabones for my Canon 400/5.6L]

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

The middle one is spot on. What is the complaint with the 75-300mm ?

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

These images are not an example at all of why I am not happy with the lens. They were grab shots with no time to set a faster shutter to stop the action. So please don't think that I judge the lens by these shots.
I just find the lens not sharp. I know all about the need for high shutter speeds and avoidance of shutter shock, but this lens does not do it for me. My other camera is Canon 60D with 400/5.6L which makes the E-M1 almost a joke for wildlife, and I am not into the absurdly high prices for Oly Pro lenses. I sold my Canon 70-300 because it was soft on the Canon body, and this Oly lens is worse. I am contemplating a Metabones adapter to fit the 400mm Canon lens on to the M1, but first I will use it with manual focus to see how it works on the M1 before I waste any more money on Olympus kit.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Is the lens still under guarantee? If so, I would be inclined to send it back for calibration.
