    As for the photo being upside down, remember that I also live in the southern hemisphere. ;-)

        Super Snow Moon Image at 400mm 1/1000 at f6.3, hand-held.



        Cropped by about 80%.

        I was wondering if I should try again at a slightly smaller aperture but review test results show it to be sharpest wide open.

          PP'd this one too, think this might be a touch better?

            Here's another one from the southern hemisphere. But the sky is not as clear as it was last night.

              Some excellent shots guys really well done. I did get one in the end but not with a 100-400 so will post in another thread.

                Hi Phill,

                I will shoot some samples at next occasion, need some daylight so hopefully coming weekend.

                  With Larry's permission, I have been playing with a copy of my image and his to try to get a stereo pair. Normally, we take two images side by side but this time, with two of Earth's hemispheres being involved, they were vertically spaced. To overcome this for side by side (crosseye) viewing, I have rotated each image.


                  My image was very "warm" and I have tried to modify it, The two images in stereo moderate this.

                  Anyway, with a base separation of just under 8,000 miles (my personal best), here goes.

                    I have just had a look outside. Some high-flying clouds have come over and they are obscuring the moon somewhat. I took some photos, but they don't appear to be all that good. Anyway, it is now 10:20pm and it is bedtime for me. Work tomorrow.....

                        In the light of the 3.1 firmware update for the EM1ii should I use IBIS or lens IS with the 100-400?

                          I don't know about others' experiences, but I have now stopped using the IBIS on the 100-400 and only use the lens IS if necessary. ie If I am holding the camera as still as possible, then I use the lens IS. If I am panning, then I switch all IS off and push the shutter speed up as far as I can.

                            Not having the luxury of a shop I can view these, I did a lot of reading online and once again the photos shown here confirm I made a good choice ordering this lens... It should be arriving any day.
                            My camera doesn't have IBIS so it was significant to get it in the lens, the negatives are allegedly that the zoom is stiff and that the fitting to the camera body is too tight that cause friction, but others said it was people forgetting to switch off the zoom lock and that once it's off it glides nicely...
                            I just can't wait... to find out myself.

                              It is stiff, and not very smooth, with the zoom lock off, but it is less stiff after a couple of years of infrequent use.

                              I got caught out recently, wondering why I couldn't get the close shots I wanted of dragonflies. I realised, when I got home, that I must have knocked the focus limiter (something I never use) into preventing focus closer than 5m.

                                With the zoom lock fully in the off position mine is smooth. It's not silky smooth like the 40-140mm f2.8 pro, but more akin to the cheaper 40-150mm f4-5.6 R. To give an idea how smooth it is I get lens creep if I walk around without the lock on.
