Re: trouble focusing with GH2 and 100-300

thanks for the suggestions, especially the focus box not quite being the center of where it is focusing. wonder if the touch calibration would have any affect? will need to experiment.

MF just isn't practical at this focal length, hand held, attempting to get the shot in a second or two. Critters don't stand still and the screen blows up 10 times so at 200 or 300mm, lots of shake and variation as you try to adjust focus.

Also AF was capable and should be perfectly capable of picking out the bird on the branch without my needing to help it find the range. I really don't believe I had this problem when I started using the combo.
