Darn good as well

Congrats Tom, excellent shot. The first ten are all excellent for sure. M4/3 is doing extremely well in that challenge.

All the best and congrats to all.

Danny.

the other week the top 6 were all Nikon cameras, i prefer to just enjoy the shots as it's the photographer and not the black box they are using

Well, we are constantly told here...

… that m4/3 is "for the birds" https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/for+the+birds

So, after all,  it must be true. 

Cheers.

Thank you very much Danny.

Someone said, it must be a huge crop. But it was a very lucky shot. The little guy nearly crashed into my camera. I've never thought it was in focus.

Here is a hardcopy of the raw-file.

All the best

#5 was shot at 110mm, to which I can only say Daaaaang! Some great work and it's nice to see our "baby cameras" well represented. Progress is good.

Cheers,

Rick

Very nice. If all mine were that size in the frame, I would be very happy mate. Brilliant shot Tom! Very hard to get shots of a KF moving bullet in the frame at that size, not easy at the speeds they go.

All the best your way and still love the markings and colours of your KF. Great stuff and congrats again of course.

Danny.
