Great shot and yeah those are the best little "toys" for kiddos - My son uses my old Droid X for an Angry Birds machine

Finally 1) got a chance to take a few photos and 2) wrangled Mogrify to get a border I wanted.

I think I'll wait until she's at least 5. Maybe 6.

Just got the Pany 100-300 and I'm pretty amazed by its acuity. Well beyond my expectations.







100% crop:

Snapsy, thanks for posting this shot! I'm really struggling to make the decision between the Olympus 75-300 and the Pana 100-300. I really want a great, long lens. Hope to see more from your new lens!

Sure thing. Acuity tapers off as you get to 300mm but it's still acceptable with careful PP/sharpening. Here's a 300mm (600mm effective) image at f/5.6, cropped about 75%:

That's what I was afraid of. I know I'm going to be using it a lot at the 300mm range.

It depends upon how you use the long focal length lenses. At relatively close distances most of the m4/3 lenses are sharp enough. Problem comes when shooting near infinity. Thermal waves ruin even the best glass. It does not take much to get thermals either, I've gotten them in cooler weather with not much sun. Surprised me. Unfortunately, those are the conditions I shoot the long lenses with the most.

Aside: much impressed the Pana 45-175. Did not like on GH2 due to stabilizer problems. On the OMD it rocks. Here is a shot I took today. 129mm, 5.6, 1/250, iso800 - heavy fog here today.

My wife and I took a trip this past August to Glacier NP and got a lot of great images with a Nikon D3s and a 28-300 lens. The camera was great of course but I was sorely under glassed for shooting out there. I now have all the good M4/3 glass that everyone here is shooting (just added the Pana 35-100), and I'm very pleased with that range of focal lengths.

I am just hoping to find a decent long lens to take on those types of trips where I might want to capture a moose or grizzly without having to crop the image to death. Of course, those types of shots are going to be long distant ones.

Nice crisp shot of the cow! I'm just afraid the 45-175 wouldn't be long enough. I have a Panasonic 100-300 on hold at my local pro shop, and I plan to check it out on Friday.

Thanks for the info!

I wasn't suggesting the 45-175 in place of the 100-300. It is just that I've been loving the 45-175 more and more, I have the 35-100 2.8 on order but I don't know if I need it now. The 45-175 has more range and is smaller and lighter but of course slower. I don't really need the speed but it is nice to have.

My main point was that with any 300 lens you might be disappointed due to thermals over long distances. It depends on where you shoot. In the woods you are probably OK. I shoot over farm fields and get lots of thermals. I have the 100-300 and love it. I shot dirt car races Sunday and used the 300 and got very sharp results, but no thermals to contend with and shorter distances. Over a field on a warm day, forget it

Here is a car shot at 300mm, 7.1, 1/640, iso400..

Larry,

Thanks for the follow up. I'm certainly going to give the 100-300 a chance to prove itself.
