I can see the 40-150mm benefiting form the 2X converter, but unsure how the 300mm Pro will work with f8, especially in the woods when birding...……..

Re: New MC 20 announced.

I'm sure the 150-400 will be priced high enough to make their planned 100-400mm look like a bargain, despite an introductory price nearly double that of the Pany version.

The samples using the MC20 from this guy looks good on the 40-150 & even better with the 300 F4 lens.

The more it costs, the more you save using a 15% off code (unless there's a maximum saving limit EDIT: Got reduction over £1,000 when checking if there was a limit).

Peter Bambousek is a highly regarded photographer. The photos taken with the 300 F/4 look very promising. Focus seems spot on and no complaints about the sharpness.

The EE-1 should come into its own now too.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Macro looks good too. (I assume "clona 13" if F13)

Checkout his setup with gun type stock brace and EE-1 here - http://www.fotolovy.cz/blog-2/files/...9810b-408.html All his photos were taken hand held.


Vážka ploská, OM-D E-M1X, M.Zuiko 300mm/f4 IS PRO + MC-20, čas 1/400 s, clona 13, ISO 1000


And the woodpecker shot is also worth a look as it is iso 2000 as well.....


Strakapoud velký, OM-D E-M1X, M.Zuiko 300mm/f4 IS PRO + MC-20, čas 1/400 s, f11, ISO 2000

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Thanks for sharing.

Clona is the czech word for aperture.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

I have never tried an EE-1 and can't understand the advantages of it. Can somebody who has used one tell me if it helps?

It must take a lot of confidence to 'carry off' a camouflaged Yeti suit like the one in the video.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

I have an EE1 and for fast, erratic subjects such as Swallows it helps. It takes a while to get used aiming with without looking through the EVF, though.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Thanks Tord. Do you use any sort of stock grip with it like he does?
