The 70-300 is an amazing piece of glass isn't it.
Unfortunately not very robust. Mine busted.

Perpetual Cornflower is my FAV it is AWESOME sharp

Mark, you should have kept her "held tight and well loved" like your best woman and then she would still be "in-service to you"

Mine is the 4/3rds Mk1 version and is certainly more substantial than the later versions, Mark.

Are you sure that no. 9 isn't Comfrey . Pulmonaria is usually a flatter, more open flower (not so tubular).

Some beautiful, pin sharp images with excellent colours. It almost looks like Spring there. You certainly know how get the best out of the 70-300. Lovely work.

It isn't robust in the focussing motor area with the external focussing lens & some care needs to be taken when handling it. For example, when taking the lens hood off, you should make sure the lens does not rotate at all (by pressing on the lens cap with one hand or zooming out & holding the barrel) otherwise the motor & gear can be strained & some people have had this happen to their lenses (including Mark, I think).

Re: 70-300mm round the garden today

Thanks Ross for that tip! I have been known to do just what you say!
Must have been lucky so far and will be more careful! Would hate not to have this lens.
Nice set Imag - that Dandelion Flower is exquisite!

I seem to have gained an undeserved reputation as a womaniser Chevvy ... and I don't have a "best woman", they are all very nice

img1 - I don't recall which Mk I had, as Ross says it was the gearing that went pear shaped, most likely for the reason he gives.

For that critical advice, a belated thanks to you Ross!
