A couple of Sparrows with the E-M5

The EC-14 and 50-200 seem to work nicely with the E-M5, my technique is to use S-AF+MF basically get close to optimum then magnify in the EVF, half shutter press and manual fine tune.
All can all be achieved pretty quickly

Oh I forgot to add, these are wide open to all intents and purposes (f/5.0 verses f/4.9).





Thanks for looking

That second one Huw is smashing. Just look at the feather detail, it's so intricate.

Thanks very much John and Mark
It's a funny old thing photography, I was hesitating about putting these up because... well to be honest I didn't they were that good but the more I look the more I'm pleased, especially with the results I'm getting with the E-M5 and my 4/3rds lenses.

Re: A couple of Sparrows with the E-M5

Hi Huw.....2 smashing shots...as said No2 is superb.

Thanks for the info on the shooting method.....But to enlarge on it do you mind adding a few things.
Is E-M5 the OM-D
Are the lens and TC four thirds.
EVF - is that live view and magnified,and does it give a good view to manual focus.
If so then the shots are twice as good.

Sorry to be thick but my brain(??) is struggling this morning.

Thanks Keith

Correct
Are the lens and TC four thirds.
Yes
EVF - is that live view and magnified,and does it give a good view to manual focus.
No its the Electronic View Finder but yes it gives an excellent stabilised and magnified view to aid manual focussing

Cheers Huw.
I am watching the micro version and can see it replacing four thirds for 99% of applications.

That's true.

Now Huw, I'm going to give you a true Aussie response. The 2nd one's a beaudy mate! Maybe even it's a bonza! (& I don't even drink beer! )
