I certainly don't find any buffer issue shooting at 8 fps in RAW only, using Lexar Pro 1000x 150MB/s.

14 shots clears in a second or two.

If the Oly 300 f4 Pro with a TC gives better results than the P/L 100-400 at 400mm, I would be impressed.

I Use the Sandisk 64 Gb 95 Mb's Extreme pro cards. The buffer fills quickly over 10 fps. Not a deal breaker, just something to work with

Nice ones Tony...these seem much closer to your previous standards of IQ and processing. Looks like that lens still can't resolve the fine plumage of the Harlequin duck but it is doing just fine with eagle, hummer and the winter loon.

The 6400ISO on the loon is impressive but I know you can make any camera/ISO look damn nice with your PP skills.

Keep shooting and enjoying the weight savings.

To keep the thread moving, shot number 6 from my body. Very early morning light at ISO1250 with no noise reduction. Maybe my memory is serving me poorly but my mark I sure seemed to show more noise. Of course, could be in "justify my purchase mode" right now !

Tony,

Can you share your thoughts on the adapted Canon 100-400 compared to the PL 100-400 as they relate to AF on the E-M1.2?

TIA

Mitesh, I can't tell you too much detail, as I don't own the 100-400 anymore. I do know that with my copy, there were times when it would not focus properly for whatever reasons, whereas with the 400 f5.6, I had no issues. The P/L works like a charm, as long as the focus-limiter is always left in the full-range setting.

It is great having a 100-400 focal-length range on the Oly, but if you want better IQ and AF, I am sure one would do better with the 300 f4 Pro, 40-150 Pro, and the 1.4x TC. Would cost you a lot more too.

If you want to use the Pro Capture mode, it will not work with either the P/L or Canon.

Native lenses will always work better than non-native lenses in terms of AF speed. When it comes to IQ you usually get what you pay for e.g. the 300/4 prime is better than the PL 100-400 zoom, and the PL is better than the Lumix 100-300 consumer zoom, etc. It would not surprise me if the IQ between the 300/4 PRO is comparable to the Canon 100-400L II but in terms of AF speed, although the latest Metabones adaptor may be very good, I doubt if it's as good as a native lens. But you know this already right, Mitesh?

Hi Bobby,

That's certainly a reasonable set of expectations, in my opinion. The reason for my asking the question was to try to gauge whether or not there is enough of a performance benefit to warrant owning a native 100-400, if one already owns a Canon 100-400? I plan on keeping my Canon cameras, and my Canon 100-400 was my most used lens in 2016. So, it would be nice if I could get by with just that lens, since mounting the PL 100-400 on a Canon body isn't possible .

I believe this is what is commonly referred to as a "first-world" problem, so likely won't agitate over it much .

It is just too bad there are no side-by-side comparisons posted anywhere (that I know of) that would show how discernible the differences are.

A PL 100-400 on the E-M1.2 is semi-native in that you don't get the benefit of Sync IS ... so the Canon 100-400L II on the E-M1.2 makes a lot of sense and I wouldn't bother with the PL - if you already own the Canon.

Don't forget to mount the 200-400 and 800 5.6 on that Olympus also....I'm sure you've tried it? Or do you not have the adaptor yet?

Bobby,

Good thoughts. Even though the Panny is semi-native, it has a couple of advantages over the Canon 100-400 that I can think of:

1. Smaller, lighter weight.
2. Native mount, so should perform better than adapted (even if you don't get the benefit of Sync IS).
3. Less likely to have issues with future camera firmware updates.

That said, I do want to try them both out side by side. I'll need to pick up an adapter, first.

Hi Geoff,

I don't have the adapter yet. I hadn't really been too keen on putting the Canon lenses on the E-M1.2 because it defeats the purpose of the weight and size reduction, and if I'm going to use those lenses, then I'm just going to put a 1DX on them and maximize their utility. If I pick up an adapter, I'm sure I'll give it a go just because .

Always entertaining to give it a go and post ludicrous shots on the forums....
