Re: Common Bronzewing Pigeon looking for a drink.

Re: 300mmm F4 rear cover part falling off!

I would say the 40-150 lens has a similar rear cover too & not only that, the hood for the 40-150 has a similar rear metal cover which came loose on mine so I carefully removed all the old glue...

Re: Trussed & plugged!

Thanks. The next will be to trim the bushing (boxwood) plugs back, seal them & then retouch with varnish to blend in. Drilling, reaming & fitting new pegs will generally be routine work, although a...

Re: C-AF preferring the background

Also, Willom is using the 4/3's 70-300 lens too (not the fastest focussing lens either), but I haven't tried it on the E-M1 II with the latest FW.
