Thumbs up How Good is M1 Mkii at 210mm?


Considering camera to subject distance (approx. 200yds.) I'm pretty chuffed.
Shot from the roadside with IS1, By way of a camera support I used an obliging tree.
CROPPED



UNCROPPED

Edit: To clarify, this wider view has been added to those above.
LENS: 40-150mm F2.8 pro +14 tc, shot at 59mm. EXPOSURE: 1/125, f/8, ISO 200
Considering the focal length of this wider view, my previous camera to subject guesstimate may well be understated.
The figures in this image appear much larger than to the naked eye - at the time they appeared as ant-like. 300 yards may be closer to the mark.

THE CATHEDRAL, MT BUFFALO NP, NE VICTORIA

Yes it proves that the Em1 2 and a presumably 40-150mm + TC 1.4 work very well together. Hope I am right.

The 40-150mm is a super lens, and quite flexible...Ö.

Captured at 03:03:59 (PM), but I understand your alarm. The camera's time may be on the 24hrs setting - I must investigate.
