Hi everyone,

I'm going on an organised tour to see the stags during rutting season in the next couple of weeks.

Can I ask for your recommendations of what to pair with my M5 (with or without adapter) in order to get the best out of the experience? Longest lens I currently own is 55-250mm STM. FYI, i'm a landscape shooter so any additional hints and tips are welcomed.

Have a great day.

Is this a one off trip or would you like to have some longer glass in your bag? For a one off, maybe think about renting a 7dii and a 100-400ii. If you just want to buy something longer, I do love my 70-300 is ii usm. Although, it’s not that much longer than the 55-250, it’s much smaller/lighter than the 100-400s. Still not sure how well it would pair with an m5. It’s kind of ridiculous on my m100. For that reason, I find a monopod very helpful when I’m shooting longer focal lengths with the m. Good luck!

+1 on renting!  Have a fun excursion.
