300mm f4 PRO and macros
26

Went birding in the bush the other day with the 300/4. Took no other lens. Normally I'd take the 60mm f2.8 macro and tripod as well but not this time. Not many birds but a some nice native blooms I couldn't resist. I was blown away with what the 300/4 can do with largish macros. This is what I got after PP.  All hand held with last two hand held focus stacked and that's with the plain old E-M1.

Lambertia formosa, 1/400 f8 ISO800I find this notoriously difficult to photograph. In soft light it's dull. In sun it's magnificent but the reds invariably blow out. This time I got it.

Common Fringe Lily (Thysanotus tuberosus), 1/160 f5.6 ISO200, hand held focus stacked

Strobilomyces sp., 1/160 f4 ISO200, hand held focus stacked
