Shot today about 1 hr before sunset with the E-1 and a Tamron 80-200/2.8 SP LD lens at f4. Expensive piece of glass though I got a bargain grade one for about 1/2 the cost and love it. Not quite as sharp as my 35-80 and like most glass (new and old) it's best stopped down a bit more than this. Shot was developed as a Tiff with Viewer2 and tweaked with Topaz DeNoise and Detail.

Whoops, the pic got screwed up and I can't find a delete button here. Sorry guys.

Ok, here's a better pic (the first one was over processed I realized after posting to make up for being shot hand held at 1/30). Same info as above. One thing I'd like to mention is I've had very good luck of late using a contrast of -2 to keep the white feathers from blowing out and then using PP to dial contrast back in. Might be of help to others since blown out whites seem to be a common problem, I know they have been for me.

Completely agree - I've been doing that since my second Oly DSLR (the E20). Sometimes I do wish Olys had more DR, though. Although I mostly use RAW images, it would be nice to be able to use an out of the camera JPEG once in a while.
