Hi Adam,

The Cardinal and last image of the Titmouse were taken with E-30 using the 50-200mm ED lens. The other 3 images were taken with the E-510 equipped with the 50-200mm ED lens.

I really enjoy using this particular lens and find I still am surprised, at times, by it's sharpness and clarity.

Zig

zig, you ought to submit your bird shots to some of the web bird sites, your shots are better than most of the samples that they have.

Yo, Steven. Remember when Ken said he doesn't do math?

What a crock - he does seem to be able to compute a commission, as I suspected...

LOL. Absolutely right Ted. I remember when he said that he didn't do math, it sounded like a car salesman saying he doesn't remember the size of the engine. Commission people live and breath the commission. I bet Ken can calculate and multiply percentages in his head faster than most of us could enter it in a calculator.

It's possible that a real estate agent's jaws get tired of biting onto your trousers like a bulldog. So Ken may be saying he doesn't want to do math when he's taking pictures. Conceivably we could cut him some slack here - what do you think?
