Smile One Bird...Three Poses and A Wonderful Lens.

Hai Folks,
Just To Share With You All, and To Tell You Guy's What A Wonderful Lens This Zuiko is. I am Reffering to the 70-300 Zuiko, and Man! This is one Incredible Lens and Really a Godsend For Birder's Like Me. For Those Of You Who Are into Birding, Go out and Grab one. For The Price, it's a Bargain and The Sharpness is Fantastic.....Here's Three , just to share with you All.....Thanks....James.

Hi james

Thanks for posting those images.

I agree with you (now) that the 70-300 lens is very good value for money. I did not think so when I first got it but found out it was all down to me not using the camera properly.

Keep them coming.

Re: One Bird...Three Poses and A Wonderful Lens.

Hey Peter et al... I think the recent update to both the camera and lens firmware have helped significantly here. I have noticed a huge improvement in performance of the 70-300mm lens following the firmware upgrade. There's just something about the use of the lens that 'feels' much better. Focus with the lens seems to be more accurate, and to be honest... I just can't put my finger on exactly what it is that has improved - it's weird, but there is certainly an improvement.

Hai Pete,
Before it came out, i pre ordered it from Japan, I was very Fortunate as mine was among the first in South East Asia. It's so Hand Holdable and The cicular Iris was The Icing on the cake for me. Compared to the Sigma 135-400, This Kid is Just Fantastic.......Thanks.....James.
