Re: E-M1 Mark 2 compared to Panasonic G9

Many thanks for that comment, somehow it slipped my mind. The reason for the poor performance is that the Panasonic uses contrast-detect AF only whereas the Olympus also has phase-detect AF. I use...

Re: Garden birds

Yes we do.

The question as I understand it was however which birds species you had observed in your garden, not in the surroundings. If that was the case then I would have listed probably 200...
