I forced myself to go out today, camera in hand - one month after the passing of my wife of 57 years. I found thid Coopers Hawk in PA. I used the 45-200 Lumix and the Metz 50 flash on the OM-D. He wasnt to cooperative. He finally turned around, looked up and flew up-ward to grab some type of bird, as a shower of feathers came raining down upon me. looked like a piegon .

Thanks. At least overcast days are good for something; nature's softbox.

Bobbytan, your images of the masked participant are great. In your first one did you use an off camera flash? Great lighting.

Harry my condolences also.

The bird shots are , superb.

That lens is for sale locally me, as apart of a second hand package, of a EP 2? camera( Cannot remember the exact model) the 14-42 Olympus and Panasonic 45-200mm. lenses .Price in toatal is about 60% of the Panasonic 45-200 purchased separately new.
Looking on the web your image quality seems to defy what most write up about this lens at the 200mm end.

Thanks for all the kind comments about my loss. I purchased the 45-200 Lumix from Michael49. Ive been very impressed with it, as i believe he was also. Heres a shot of a Puffin taken on an island off Nova Scotia last summer. I used it on a G2 mounted on a gun stock that i made. Hope its ok to show it here, since we are discussing this lens.

Would you reckon I could make shots like these (http://www.ml-fotografie.nl/vliegshows.html) with my new OM-D combined with a Panasonic 45-200?

Most of the shots in my link are made with an Canon 40D and 100-400L that I used to own in the past. I would like to do this type of photography again but I am wondering if the OM-D is up to it (C-AF wise) and which lens I should buy for this... (I've just bought the OM-D a couple of weeks ago and have not had the chance yet to shoot action with it)

Oh and since this is a image related thread, here are two shots I recently made with my new OM-D

My daughter:








A shot I made during a model shoot, while waiting on the MUA...

At what focal length were those shot? 1.6 x 400 = 640mm equivalent at the long end, which would require a 320mm lens on the E-M5. I am not sure that there is something that long which is sharp enough (and which focuses accurately enough with motion going on). Once focused, I don't think that following would be an issue, since the initial focus is probably good enough for a series at that distance with a slow lens.

I checked the focal length of the flight show shots, most of it is shot between 300 and 400mm.. But since the OM-D has a higher resolution I thought I might get away with just 400mm and crop some more?

But like I said, I am worried about the OM-D AF performance too during these action shots... Thats just another reason why I am debating with myself if it is even worth it to spend money on a consumer grade zoom lens like the 45-200. Cause at the end of the day, my funds are not unlimited... (and my wish list for this year still contains a Oly 60mm macro and a Canon 5D mk III )
