Working together...

The E-M5 partners the ZD 50-200 + EC-14 (1,2 and 5) and ZD 50 + EC-20 (3 and 4). The last (I've been through the wars) Mr Squirrel is an ISO4000 shot.











Thanks for taking a look

Thanks Greg, it's fun putting this little camera through it's paces.
It works very well with the 50-200 and EC-14 as can be seen with Andym's latest shots.

Re: Working together...

Lovely set of photos Huw. Were they AF or MF with the magnified view?

I was surprised to see you selliing your E5 & also the Sigma 150 macro lens. I do confess the lens is a little heavy & mine doesn't get taken anywhere much except into my own garden.

Thanks Ross, these were auto focus with the 50-200 + EC-14 and a combination of manual and auto with the 50 and EC-20 (if my memory serves me right).

Big step putting the E-5 up for sale but I have decided to slim down my 4/3rds gear in favour of m4/3rds, weight and this amazing new E-M5 being the real motivators.
I'm keeping my core 4/3rds glass for now, that's my ZD50, 14-54 MK2, 12-60 and 50-200 together with the teleconverters.

Sad to see the Sigma 150 go but I had to make a decision somewhere and the little ZD 50 won (it works rather well with the EC-20).

You can always get the new M4/3's 60mm macro lens when it is available too, (but there are no teleconverter options yet).

All astonishingly sharp and very nice composition of your opening shot, Huw - I love Starlings, probably the first bird species I noticed as an infant I think.

Love these superb shots, looking forward to getting more practice with my EM-5. Was the 50-200mm the SWD version? I understand the MKI works better with the EM-5 AF. I have had problems with the SWD version rattling around a bit before locking on focus, I don't think it is me as it works perfectly with the E5. Very impressed with the IQ on the EM-5 but I'm only going to sell the E30 at the moment.

Thanks Phil, it's certainly a great little camera but there is a school of thought that says let all the early adopters find all the faults so they get ironed out before you purchase one

Hi David, thanks and yes it is the SWD version.
Not the most rapid on the E-M5 but certainly usable in my opinion.
