Talking Stick it all on and see what happens!

I was bored, it was dark and raining all day so I set out to see how much 'stuff' I could stick on the front of my camera and pointed it out the back bedroom window at the bird feeder that is about 20 metres away:

200mm f4 Olympus OM lens (at f4)/Olympus OM 2xA converter/OM to Four Thirds adapter/EC-14 Olympus converter/Four Thirds to Micro Four Thirds adapter/Olympus E-PL5 camera with 2x digital zoom switched on = 1120mm at f11, 1/125 sec, ISO 1600; in 35mm terms I think that is 2240mm!

The result (which has been processed in Lightroom) is rubbish and there are a couple of settings I should have changed (IS was switched on and shutter delay might help), but on a sunny day with a more natural setting it may be worth trying again if I'm bored?



I am hoping for a decent weekend weather-wise next week as my E-5 is due back at least rain won't stop play with that.

Re: Stick it all on and see what happens!

I still haven't got around to trying stacked TCs behind my 350mm on 4/3 as I've never needed more than 700mm. Most of the time the 350 has a 1.4x behind it. In my OM shooting days I used all sorts of combinations of TCs and extension tubes. Most of which shouldn't have worked according to Olympus.

Unfortunately my E-5 is away for repair so I am down to just the E-PL5; the E-5 should be back tomorrow so I will set it up again sometime this week for a snap.

I can't compete with that Franken-lens. But I photographed my paltry attempts with my mobile phone:
