Re: Long Tailed Tit

That's a cracker. The 100-400 is quite a lens really. I reckon that it's 95% of the sharpness of the 300 f4, but the zoom makes it a much more versatile option. It's a pity that Oly and Panasonic can't support each other's IS systems though so that we can have Sync IS with this lens on Oly bodies.

Re: Long Tailed Tit

Unfortunately, there still seems to be problems with compatibility with the EM1ii regarding the bayonet fit.
One person on another forum said that they found it a very tight fit on their EM1ii and contacted Panasonic who told them it was an Olympus fault. The person contacted Olympus who said that it was a known problem and that some springs on the bayonet needed loosening and send it in for fixing.

That’s interesting. Mine’s a very tight fit, so much so that I half expected metal shavings to be all over the inside of my camera the first time I put it on

FWIW, my EM1 ii and Pany 100-400mm are a very snug fit. No problems at all...

As are mine. - But we had a bit of difficulty mounting my PL 100-400mm on a friend's E-M10 Mk II, even though it mounts easily, but snugly, on my E-M1 and E-M1 Mk II.

I'll pass this info on to her.

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback. I've since done some reading and it seems that it is common and nothing to worry about. It is the weather seal making it stiff and not the mount itself per se, therefore it won't 'wear' the metal. Apparently the E-M10 Mark II is a known culprit and apparently tight with a number of lenses. Perhaps it's like this to compensate for the lack of weather sealing?

I'm certainly not going to have my mount adjusted like that other guy, it would make all my Olly lenses loose

Re: Long Tailed Tit

It was certainly a tight fit on my EM1mk2 when I borrowed one for the weekend off a mate but I certainly wouldn't get my camera fiddled with either as all my Oly lenses fit perfectly.
That's a lovely shot Toby, it's certainly a good birding lens if the light is good.
I'm in too minds weather to get one myself or to wait for the Oly x2 TC to use on my 40-150 f2.8.

Thanks. I've never been happy with any 2xTC's I've tried tbh as I think they degrade IQ that bit too much, especially with subjects at a distance.

It will be interesting to see how the 2x is on the 40-150mm f2.8. This would make it 80-300mm f5.6 so the obvious comparison would be the Panny 100-300mm mark II. IMO it would have to be markedly better to warrant the extra weight using that combo over the 100-300mm.But both still lose 100mm compared to the 100-400mm.

There's just too much blinking choice these days

Re: Long Tailed Tit

Too many problems keep cropping up with regard to the Panny 100-400 fit and non repair .... yet I also see many reports of people being very happy with it.

As my 75-300 is doing very well for me at present and the 150-400 pro is out of my comfort zone both in weight and for my pocket. I think I'll wait and see what the planned (approx) 100-400 one will be like as seen on the lens roadmap from Oly.
