Olympus OM Zuiko 300mm f4.5 at 2 miles (3.2 Km)
1

After inspection and some testing, I purchased an ancient OM 300mm to quell my expensive lust for a long lens. After purchasing it, I bicycled to Rosslyn for some more serious test shots. Lacking a tripod, and unable to get focus peaking to work, focusing was rather troublesome.

Obviously, it was rather cloudy & hazy and there wasn't lot of light. Although f4.5 is baked into the EXIF, the lens was probably at f5.6, which I used for most in this set to test my new purchase.

I have no experience with any lens longer than 150mm (300 FF equivalent), and now I have doubled that.

Granted, this is underexposed but should I expect better?
