  • Another slow moving BIF.

    A Common Buzzard soaring over the house, a slow-moving target but still not perfect focus with the E-M5 and 4/3rds Leica 14-150mm.

      David, reading your exif, E-5 + 14-150 @ 1/1000 @ f/5.6 @ ISO200 @ 150mm full reach of your lens.
      Actually, I think your result is quite good with plenty of detail for a dark coloured bird against a bright sky. I have attempted similar shots without success.

      Among the best I've been able to get is a quirky shot of our sulphur crested cockatoos (one showing off his 3 point roll), E-3 + 50-200 at full reach @ 1/1250 @ f/8 @ ISO 200. For this I had the advantage of a relatively light coloured bird against a tonally similar background, but for each our lenses were shorter than we might have liked. Cockatoos fly like the wind.

        I find the 14-150 to be quite slow at focussing on birds with the E620.
