Anna's hummingbird with the Oly 100-400 zoom
20

Anna's hummingbird, Om-d-em1x, Olympus 100-400mm @400mm f6.3 1/640, ISO 1600,

For people out there who have doubts about the optical quality of the Olympus 100-400 zoom, here is a good example at 400mm. wide open at f6.3. Because it is a somewhat slow lens it can be harder to achieve optimal sharpness, but the optics are excellent. This is one of several young Anna's hummingbird who fight over the feeders in my backyard in Berkeley, California. Not a great background, guilty as charged. I wanted to display the sharpness of the lens here. This is posted slightly cropped but not downsized, lightly processed with DXO Pure Raw and Topaz DeNoise AI
