EM1 Mk III and Oly 100-400 in Yorkshire

Last week I had chance to put my new lens to the test, on a short break to the Yorkshire coast. No scientific testing, just real life use. Other than image quality, my main concern with the lens was the extra size and weight of the lens as I pretty much always shoot hand-held. I did, however soon get used to this, though found it advisable to at least be able to brace myself against something, if shooting something very distant or up above my head.

The Gannets and Tree Sparrow were taken at Bempton Cliifs RSPB, the dragonflies at Castle Howard and the butterfly at Burton Agnes gardens. All hand-held, shot RAW and processed to my liking in Capture One. The Gannet portrait was taken using the 1.4x teleconverter - though I haven't tried that extensively yet.

Feeling very  positive about this lens so far!
