great series. The feathers have such a great, delicate appearance, especially in the first pic. Outstanding.

Hi Zig,

When I saw the first picture I though you bought a 300mm f/2.8...!!

Beautiful shot, love the colors and really impressed for amount of detail.

Regards.

Marcelo

Hi All,

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment. It is much appreciated.

I was going thru my older files for a specific image when I came upon this series. I'd forgotten as to how much detail the E-510 was able to render.

Thought it might be of interest to folks with the E-510 or E-520 as to what they can capture using a 50-200mm lens.

Zig

Thanks JJdog2/Steven,

comments are always appreciated. And, I'm not going to lie, positive comments even more so.

A couple of more taken with the E-510+50-200mm combo.

The first, a Goldfinch is probably my favorite, in terms of feather detail.


The Titmouse is my all time favorite bird shot. Unfortunately, it is perched on a not so natural setting- a bird feeder.


I would love to try my hand at these shots using the E5 and the 50-200mm to be able to view the differences.
