Wildlife photographer David Tipling has been trying out some Oly gear

Was just looking at his workshop availability this year and found this blog entry.

Well Mr Tipling seems fairly impressed. Wonder if he's going to make the switch?

As already said, Pro Capture only works on High (rate) with the Panasonic lens, and this setup does not support C-AF Tracking. Which means its not a lot of use if the focus changes ie the bird flies towards you...........

Well I never did...! Thanks to Noel and IamFisheye for the heads up. A massive game changer for Olympus and u4/3 if it comes off.
Looking forward to the reviews on such a leap of faith from very big sensors to small...er...
Note Mr Tiplings Nikon gear is already up for sale!??

Re: Wildlife photographer David Tipling has been trying out some Oly gear

Currently using a Mkii but have yet to exploit its full potential for wildlife photography. Looking forward to further comment from David Tipling.

The only remote similarity claimed to David is that I too have sold my Nikon gear.
