Show your 300mm pics(while we wait for 2015)
8 months ago

Read with interest the news of the pending olympus 300mm/f4 lens. Bad news is release date around 2015. I have also read various threads on the good/bad qualities of the organic long telephoto lenses. Since we have to wait I thought it would be great to see what people can do with what we have now. So... post your 300mm pics. Olympus, Panasonic, legacy lens,this is a non demoninational post. i have seen outstanding pics in the past lets see more. To start things off I humbly offer the following:

This one is 286mm! Probably the sharpest image I have taken with the 100-300. Perfect light. Most images I take with this lens don't quite make the grade.

I would pre-order the 300mm f4 today if I could.  This will be a long wait.

A question to all: do anybody have used 300 mm in the city (not only for sports and nature)?

I suppose there are many things in the city to shoot with super-telephoto lens. I don't have 300 mm lens, but here are some pictures from my 45-175 (sorry for focal length off topic).

P.S. Hitchcock's movie is great!
