Re: 300mm/M1ii birding review & recommendations

Yes, I saw that the other day. I checked my settings and they are more or less the same as I use already. Unfortunately it proves that there is no substitute for skill, which Toni obviously possesses...

I see Wex are listing the 300mm f4 again. It is priced at 1839 but they are awaiting stock. Panic over.

Re: 300mm f4 no longer available

They have now ended up with the (temporary) problem that many of the new prices are cheaper than some of the used examples that the dealers have in stock.

I should add that I know nothing about the seller or product in that link. It just turned up in a Google search.

I'm not sure if it is ok to post a links to a commercial Ebay site but, on the assumption that it is, would this be of interest?

Re: Stonechats in Autumn Sunshine

Hi Tord. Since you asked here is the info for the image sizes. I will let you work out how much they are cropped. It is quite a bit.

Re: E-M1 Mark 2 compared to Panasonic G9

I spent quite a long time following a couple of Stonechats as they flitted about in the sunshine last week. It was hard work keeping up with them but it was worth it for the lovely light. The nice...
