What to expect from the Oly 75-300
10

A lot of really excellent wildlife and birding photographers have been sharing the results of astounding skill (and their OM-1 + Oly 150-400mm) on this forum.

As some "normal" photographers may be intimidated or disappointed with the results they are getting I have decided to share some snapshots of a common tern I took recently on a cloudy day. I use a Pen-F and an Oly 75-300mm II for my birding.

Both pictures are heavily cropped (getting nearer was sadly not an option). I only spend a couple of minutes in Workspace to (not) do adjustments. I am happy with these images as they are good enough for sharing with friends and family.

As there's probably enough room for postprocessing improvement, the uncropped files for you to play around are on my onedrive dpreview folder (<- click to access). Feel free to post your efforts here.

Autofocus (C-AF)

Got frustrated with autofocus and reverted to manual focus
