Re: One thing many existing Olympus users expect from the new camera - BIF!

David I totally agree. We tend to think because we have 300mm zoom lens we should use it full zoom. I think you are best to take a wider angle view with BIF and only when you consistently hit the bird in the frame to slowly start to zoom in. BIF are all about practice in panning.
