The Olympus MC-20+300mm f4 works very well in good light. What can you do with f8 and 600mm in poor light?

I generally photograph stationary targets using A – Aperture Preferred with a minimum Low shutter speed setting of 1/40 for the 600mm f8 combination. I find this shutter speed easy to handhold without worrying about holding technique.

Amazing IS. 1200mm-efl handheld at 1/40 second. It boggles the mind for anyone who has been photographing for quite a few years.

Not that long ago I tried to stay at 1/400 or above with my E5+EC14+50-200.  The stabilization improvements make photographing stationary targets so much easier.
