really nice shots, I especially like the tiger and the elephant. What lens did you use?

....hey Tom, nice work here and a lot slower pace then what we often see from you.

I use my FT 50-200 or FT 70-300 for these focal lengths; both work really well on the M1. I do have an m40-150 which makes carrying a lot easier than with the big lenses and is also an excellent lens but nothing like your 60mm........... hey I gotta get out more.

Thanks for sharing these.

Number 3 and the Tiger are my faves. First, they have all the fine attributes of good photography, focus, exposure, composition (as do the others) but you've caught some wonderful expressions. Almost human-like emotion in their eyes.

All are good, but I vote for #3 and #5 as my favorites. The whole series is top-notch.

Thanks everyone, lenses used were LUMIX G VARIO 45-150/F4.0-5.6, OLYMPUS M.75-300mm F4.8-6.7 II & OLYMPUS M.60mm F2.8 Macro.
Very impressed with the image quality of the 45-150mm lens, Find the 75-300 to soft towards the 300mm end but good through the rest of the range. Wondering if the Panasonic 100-300mm is any better?

I was under the impression that the Olympus outperform the Panasonic, I think I read some review that state that.

I have a feeling there are good and bad copies of both.
