Re: Moon again

What do we do? Change the name of the Forum to EX-Olympus SLR Talk?

If I remember correctly I stopped the OM 300 f/4.5 down to f/5.6 when I mounted it on the EM1.2 and put the MC20 with it to the lake for those eagle shots I look not too long ago on the osprey pole. I did that because the lens is not sharp at f/4.5 an dI was afraid f/8 would be far.

That worked pretty well at f/11 with the MC20. Surprised me.

If you put an f/11 lens in front of a sensor that performs well when you crank the ISO up f/11 can work. I had a lot of light and didn't have to crank it up that far. Could have used more shutter speed maybe but the images were presentable. I think I used ISO 1600. Can't remember for sure. If you are comfortable with ISO2500 on the Canon you could run a faster shutter than I did on the tripod. Might even be able to handhold them. You do need a lot of light.
