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.

Amazing shot at 300! I may have to add that to my lens bucket list!

Yes ... especially at 600mm hand-held with the car moving towards you!

Your b/w shots are great too, Bob. Nice lighting.

Awesome. Your boat/fishing series would make for a great exhibition.

The PL25 is such a freaking great lens Bob. It punches way above it's weight.

Two from me.

First real test using off camera flash with the EM-5.

Think we'll have to redo this picture some day a little more controlled and with more post processing pherhaps, liked this one quite a bit as it is now so decided to upload it :-)

Haven't got any real good modifiers such as nice big softboxes yet, considering either a studio flash with soft box or converting some soft boxes to the normal small flashes.

The flash I used here was a Nikon SB-900 shot through a white sheet.

Just some test and not too much PP, conversation in Silver Efex Pro II but haven't done anything else to the picture so far.

Used the Pan Leica 25mm for a few different reasons, one is that my little one room flat isn't big enough to get half body shots with anything longer, second is that my father has borrowed the Oly 45mm (he seems to like it as I haven't seen it for a while :-P ) and third is because the lens almost lives on my EM-5 :-)

Wilbus: Wonderful shot!

Where you are playing with adding light, I'm playing with very little light. Went out this morning after the cold front came through along with a little snow. Shots were hand held at ISO 12800. I wanted to play with some software plugins to see how well they could deal with these shots. These were processed with some Topaz plugins. As with many, if not most, you can only do so much!

+1.

I only have the tiny flash that comes with the OM-D in terms of flash for m4/3, but I wanted to use it for Thanksgiving family photos yesterday instead of the 5d2. So I went totally ghetto - I used a radio trigger on the OM-D (cheap ebay one) with my 430EX, shot totally manual, holding the OM-D in one hand and the 430EX in my other..........

I was pretty happy with the results for the most part though - it just took some experimentation with exposure....









And one from today (more my comfort level).....
