Usable people photos from 1/2 mile with m4/3?
Sep 18, 2012

Technical, not prurient question. This morning on TV news an ex-paparazzi was interviewed regarding the photos of Princess Kate. He had a setup of a $20,000 system which consisted of a FF camera, 300mm lens and a lens doubler with live view of a reporter across the East River in NYC. Conditions were not the best - overcast, yet one could fairly well see and identify the reporter. Is this costly system well beyond the capabilities of anything m4/3's offers?
