  • Initially I was disappointed with the PL100-400 and it took me 3 months to figure out how to get the best out of it: For really razor sharp shots It is essential to use the cameras electronic ...
  • Great shot of the bird though and an excellent example of your tracking / panning skill.
  • I agree with you entirely, the only problem being when the subject's in the middle of a lake and no boats allowed !
  • Having been a user of Olympus lenses on Panasonic bodies (which have IBIS) and Panasonic lenses on Olympus bodies for over 4 years now, I can quite happily state that they all work perfectly fine. ...
  • I have tried 3 so far, Olympus 1.7x, Nikon 1.7x and raynox 2020pro 2.2x. None work very well on the pl100-400. The 1st 2 are not sharp. The Raynox is very sharp, but it has terrible chromatic ...
  • I have always managed to speak to their technicians and they have always been exceedingly helpful. Maybe it's my approach?
  • What Olympus camera do you have and what do they call it? I have an em1-mk2 and it has anti-shock, but I believe that is just a miniscule delay. I wasn't aware it had first curtain electronic!
  • Really nice shots Trevor. Very artistic. ...and Thank goodness the shooting conditions were far more favourable than at Yeovilton.
  • I believe 2 factors come into play. The shutter has to close before opening to take the shot, it has to do this and be stopped very quick to prevent delay when shooting. So we have quite a mini ...
  • Hi Tommi,  when I fit the PL100-400 to my GX8 the choice is Dual IS or no IS and once again it works brilliantly at short focal lengths but provides soft images at long focal lengths. So for ...
  • Sorry for your disappointment. I would like to make two comments regarding sharpness in general with m43 long lenses... I don't personally have the oly300 but on another m43 forum Mu43 they have a ...
  • Nice images.
  • Lovely images and what a wonderful selection of aircraft. ...and how good is it that the pilots at your shows present the top of the aircraft to the crowd, which unfortunately in the UK seems to be ...
  • I think you'll find that the aperture is wide open for focusing with dslr's also. Again I think the focusing is done with the lens wide open. H'mm I still reckon it will be cdaf only with the TC ...
  • Hi Mark, regarding bird's on the Exe estuary, the tide height is also a very important factor. They shift from the river to nearby fields when the tide is high.
  • I agree with your thoughts on fantasy land. Another point of consideration which will have people moaning is that with a 2x TC, The phase detect C-AF will no longer function.
  • Well done Trevor, nice images. Judging by the helicopter and flames shot, I must have been about 100ft to the right of you. Challenging conditions is a very polite way of putting it!!! The amount ...
  • Thanks for that info Trevor. I am being taken as part of a 'family' group, so no idea where I'll end up! Years ago we used to be in a field at the end of the runway which was awesome. There is a ...
  • Thanks for that info Trevor. Regarding stopping down to f22, I had to do that at my first airshow about 6 years ago and all the images were horrendously soft. I bought a Pro8 3 stop ND after that ...
  • That is an excellent explanation thank you, but I feel that with cameras there is also one other factor we need to consider and that is of pixel spacing (not just density). Although we normally ...
