Thanks for looking Brian. Thanks Roger, and thank your wife for me. I'll confirm it next time I see the horticulturist at the conservatory.Smile

Why? I'm not aware there are QC issues with this lens.

I must say then lens/sensor combo seems to lend itself well to extreme cropping. Here's a pic taken in a churchyard today. The detail photo is about 7% of the original (long sides) and is a 100% crop. Image was handheld... would have been even better with a tripod obviously. 1/25sec at f2.8, ISO 1600.

The flowers are shaped like many salvias - but this isn't a plant I've seen before.

I've only just noticed that the poor old spider above is missing two legs. Very un-observant of me, and maybe explains why the web is a bit of a mess!

I got so carried away looking at the detail, that I missed the detail -(or should that be de-leg) Sad

I'm not................. I'd cast it away without a care in the world, if need be - like I did my Canon 5D Mk II + 5 lenses, including 3 'L' ones! Grin

It's just your comment seemed odd.

Anyway - have a yummy looking meal! Tongue

Actually it's the bottom of a pine cone. Image width is about 15mm in reality. DoF is very shallow as you can see despite use of f11. No crop.

A sequence to show how the EM-5 can capture sporting action (warning, the light was dire so these aren't "good" images, just a play to show how one can "capture the moment")

I've read somewhere that shooting at 3.5 fps with single point SAF is a good way of capturing this type of action so gave it a go, it seems to work OK keeping good focus throughout (but with movement blur in the latter stages - did I mention the light was dire? Smile )

All are crops of around 60%

(Rather than committing 1k or so on the new 35-100 f2.8 I've got myself a copy of the Oly 40-150 R to see how useful this range is. I'd read that it was a bit faster focusing than the 75-300 so hope it may prove useful for my BIF work. The light was so bad I had no real chance to play with that yet, but so far it looks to be a pretty good price vs performance option)

Nice action series Brian....you need a steady hand to keep the focus area over your main subject if they're fast moving! -(what magnification do you use for the focus point?..I find 10x or 14x seem to be my normal choice).
