A few shots with the E-M1 and 50-200mm SWD +EC2.0

Initially I was not getting the results I was when using this combo on the E-5.

Tried the AF adjust but I don't know if it is my eyesight or not but I couldn't see any obvious need to adjust the focus points. Based on my results with the E-5 I know the combo worked well and so I left things as they were.

Did some test shots on a tripod. Nothing very scientific just at full zoom, AP at f/8, antishock at 8sec, changing the ISO through the range 200-3200 to increase shutter speed. Results looked fine so maybe its just handholding is more sensitive because of the addition of the adaptor and I will need to watch my shutter speed more. This where shooting at F/8 is a distinct disadvantage.

Fortunately with the E-M1 the better sensor allows shooting with a higher ISO. With the E-30/E-5 I was reluctant to shoot higher then 800.

Anyway here are some shots from this week, I think I maybe getting the hang of using this combo.
