Default The ZD 300 f2.8

There has been discussion of buying the cream of the crop lenses in another thread. I've tasted the 35-100 and WOW. Added the 7-14, and I'm impressed and intimidated by the image quality and perspective.

Now I did it big time. I always told myself I would have it one day, and decided to pull the trigger on a lens I know will get use. It fits my outdoor style and the only way I'll be disappointed is if the tripod tips over.

Some quick pics with the E-3/300 f2.8/EC-14 at 425mm.



It used to be all I had to do to get 100% crops is to crop smaller than my largest allowed size in Smugmug and post that largest size. Now it just won't display that largest size. Anyway, not 100%, but a resized crop, none the less.



A sparrow



and a crop



A little farther away from the subject



and a crop.




I'm gonna love this thing, but unlike every other lens I've bought, the tripod collar will stay on this one.

Holy [email protected], man(!)......that would be my last lens in this lifetime.....period, much less last Zuiko.

What a set of lenses you now own. You need an SUV to carry that bag for you.

The results are quite impressive.

Aw Geez Greg!

It's bad enough that you had to go and get one of these. BUT, did you have to go and show your first shots were of birds?

Seriously, congrats on getting a really fine lens. I hope you enjoy using it and be sure to post more..........

Zig

Maybe I need to have my head examined...

In that case, maybe it should be "Greg's List"
