  • I've been shooting this combo on the 5D3 for about 8 months. My main subjects are birds - static and in flight. I was considering the 500mm/4 for a long time, but went with the lighter and ...
  • I've been shooting with the 300 for a few years and I .can attest to its sharpness :-) I drooled over the 350  back in the 80's - 90's when I shot with the OM system. I hoped I'd find one in a ...
  • . . .  how the IQ of the OM350mm compares with that of the ZD300mm Peter
  • My spending history is: 1 lens + 1 more + 1 more and I eventually end up with a full system. Not again with Olympus. As I wrote to GB, if I was just starting out  it would be a different thing But ...
  • Tim, you have to wind back to 2010 when that page was written. All this means is that Oly didn't update the page and your sarcasm is pointless Peter
  • Replied in Reality check
    maybe so, but  I have the 5D3 with 16-35 . . .  and I look at m.ft as a third system that I don't have room for, and something like the sigma 50/1.4A is of more interest to me now
  • Replied in Reality check
    no, I want a camera that significantly improves on my E-5s ability to AF my existing lenses. I want a camera that can AF track BIF with my existing 4/3 lenses I want a camera that's easy to handle ...
  • GB, yes, agreed the m.zuikos are by all accounts very nice indeed, and if I was just now moving from my old OM film system I'd almost certainly be going OMD . . . But I moved to Oly 4/3 long time ...
  • same on Olympus Australia. The only reference here to the DSLR products is a mention within the 4/3 lens listing explaining what a 4/3 lens is, and links to E-Xx user manuals on the support page. ...
  • Thanks Andrew cold fronts this time of year will dust the ranges west of Sydney with light snows above 1000m. This shot was at about 1400m. I track the forecasts and computer models watching for ...
  • Taken last week, west of Sydney Australia. Looks like we'll get a real winter for a change down here. Peter
  • Replied in Noisy E5
    Wayne, NR is only for long exposures (>1 sec)  where the camera subtracts a dark frame to eliminate thermal noise (hot pixels) - of no use in general shooting I assume you are looking at JPG ...
  • Nice shots of some of our most common water species Suhas. The cormorant is my favourite Peter
  • I like both of these shots Rob. The first puts the birds in the context of the land, and not many Aussies would mistake that top-end landscape. The 2nd puts the bird in character - all too familiar ...
  • Replied in A boobook
    Extra nice when viewed at 100%, well done Martin. I still have not seen a boobook after a life of bird watching. Peter
  • wow Milt, those first 2 are very nice! - so sharp.   Looks like the bird in the 3rd one was moving a bit too quickly for your shutter and gave you some motion blur.  But judging by the first 2 I'd ...
  • both are good bird captures Terry, but the background in #2 makes it a great photo Peter
  • Replied in Some Pelicans
    good shooting Richard, except for that first shot which is outstanding ! Peter
  • Taken this week in my Sydney backyard. I was using my  BIF rig in the backyard - waiting for passing birds to shoot just before sunset, when a group of Rainbow Lorikeets came in for a close visit. ...
  • Replied in Laser
    a very interesting effect ! Be careful though, lasers have been known to permanently burn out sensor pixels just as they can injure the retina Peter
