I would like to start a thread for 150-400 owners to share images with this unique lens. Looking forward to seeing other's work with this lens. I will start things off.

Please also indicate if any post processing was done, or if they are SOOC jpegs.


This helps to assess what the lens can do, rather than assessing your skills in post. The result is managed expectations for all!

Good idea. Not overly impressive results from a $7,500 lens IMO. Hope we see more examples.

It is also helpful to others to show the exif when uploading, rather than them having to use an exif viewer.

Yeah my bad, I am new to posting images and was using Flickr. I just signed up for access to image upload and fixed the original post.

Very nice. The 150 - 400 is an incredible lens. Do you use bird tracking or caf for moving subjects?

Right now I have set to switch between C-AF single point and Bird Tracking on the FN lever and then I have a custom button programmed to 5x5. I've found bird tracking is not flawless but works surprisingly good for those situations where you have a busy background when other focus modes would otherwise fail to stick on the subject.

Thanks, I use bird af with the 200mm f2.8 and for portraits also find bird af very useful.

How are you finding the bokeh compared to the 300 f/4, especially with tree branches in the background? I find the 300 to be more swirly, if that make sense, than smooth.

Bokeh is pretty subjective but so far I've found it to be pleasing and uniform. No complaints there.

With everything going on, I consider myself very lucky and fortunate to have had the opportunity to return to Costa Rica for the third time in my first extended international trip after the pandemic started. With all things considered, it really could not have gone better and that was in no small part thanks to fantastic local guides and accommodations staff. I spent time on this trip really trying to push the E-M1X and 150-400 to its limits, and CR is one of those places low light and rain where one would wonder how well the comparatively tiny m43 sensor would do. As a brand agnostic person I came away mostly pleased and had no regrets that it was a great tool for the job. Of course any questions and C&C are welcome.

And in case anyone was wondering, howler monkeys aren't normally orange...it's a genetic mutation. There's some debate as to whether the trait is being driven by human forces (ie pesticides) or if it represents some other more rare natural process.

If I were in need of a high-quality telephoto lens with long reach, this lens would be enough for me to choose MFT over any alternative. What I see in this thread is very impressive, and the combination of image quality, reach, portability and even price makes it a unique proposition. Maybe I should go back to doing motorsports photography, just to have an excuse to buy it...
