  • Hi there This week I took this shot of a pair of Arctic puffin ( Fratercula arctica) in our little fine zoo. I was the first time out with the 75-300mm. Quite pleased with it, optically quite ...
  • Replied in Example
    To give an example: EM-1, 90-200mm, EX25, quite heavely cropped. Cheers Emilio
  • Thank you. That makes the topic quite a lot more clear. I'm using the 50-200mm SWD and the 90-250mm quite a lot with some pleasing results. Cheers Emilio
  • Replied in Tree Swallows
    Hi Richard Good use of the new possibilities after the update. Especially I like #2 and #5. Great pictures. Cheers Emilio
  • Hi Some weeks ago I took this portrait of a Dalamtian pelican ( Pelecanus crispus). One of the last pictures I took with the FT 70-300mm before I sold it. Too much trouble to focus with the EM-1. ...
  • Hi Sergey A nice view you have there - with the opportunity to take spectacular photos as we can see. And quite remotely there - good to have internet. Cheers Emilio
  • Hi everbody My guess that I could hope to find expertise answers to my question in this forum was quite on spot. All replies were to the subject and very helpful. Thank you all :-) Have a good time ...
  • Hi Vesku Your comment is very much appreciated. Now I think I have all the information that I need to make a correct decision. I understand that the 100-300 is very capable nice to have lens. But ...
  • Hi Thank you. You're comment is very much appreciated. Cheers Emilio

    Hi Stephen You confirm that the 100-300mm is a capable lens especially in hands like yours. Your remark about the mirror-lenses holds true. I'm sure I wouldn't be happy with one. Cute birds in your ...
  • Hi You score a direct hit with your comment. I know that none of those lenses mentioned are a match for what I have already. And it bothers me, I have to confess a little. But on the other hand I ...

    Hi daddyo Seen a lot of your comments and work over the years. Good opportunity now to thank you for all those contributions. Of course especially for your anwser here. I just started to see the ...
  • Hi, thanks. I tend to the 75-300mm now. Cheers Emilio
  • Hi and thank you. From what I see the 100-300mm is quite capable. Some limitations that you mentioned are true for all tele lenses. And I shoot RAw exclusively so no problem here. I have to think ...
  • Hi, thank you. Yes, I admit the 100-300mm is to take into account here. Seems to perform better than the old 70-300mm. I looked into your work. Good stuff! Cheers Emilio
  • Thank you Martin :-) I visited your gallery. Lots of very nice stuff.  You make good use of your long zooms, congratulations. As I understand your writing you rate the 75-300 quite a bit over the ...
  • Hi Christof Your thoughts are very welcome and precise. My fault that I didn't list my FT-gear: Olympus 7-14mm, Olympus 11-22mm, Panasonic 25mm 1.4, Panasonic 14-150mm, Olympus 50-200mm SWD, ...
  • Thank you for the link. I wondered if I should have asked about the Panasonic alternative too. Yes, I should have asked. Your pictures are just great. I see you take your time with the animals and ...
  • Hi I guess in this forum are the experts for my question. I own the EM-1 with 12-40 and 60mm Macro plus several FT-lenses. I'm waiting for the soon to bee annouced 40-150mm PRO lens, like many guys ...
  • Well done! A exceptional picture. Cheers Emilio
