Default Earl & others with the f/2.8 40-150 + MC14

Since putting the MC14 behind the f/2.8 40-150 I hardly ever take it off which makes for a wonderful f/4 56-210 that in turn is a terrific changeout to the BIG 50-200.

While AF with the lens on my E-M1 is blazing fast it is a true focus gem at MF with VF magnification turned on.

Lots of fun using this lens/teleconverter combinaton.
----------------------------

As Greg C has mentioned, the rain here (all of Texas) has been immense for the month of MAY. The past 3-weeks rainfall in the DFW area has equaled ALL of 2014.

I live 4-miles from our local Lake Arlington. I was there yesterday and it is full to the parking lot & the park gate locked later in the day. All but two very large lakes in Texas are now full ++.

Earl the GWE at the nearby nature preserve, he is a fearless fellow when I find him on the fishing dock railing, sometimes as close as 5 feet focus distance... these were about that yesterday.

Those close ups are with just the TC, no extension tubes, right? It's amazing how close they designed this lens to focus. That's one beautiful bird too.

...no extension tubes, MC14 only. It is an amazing lens, I'm now thinking a 'refurb' 12-40 if I find one, maybe at Cameta one day.

Sorry to hear about the flooding in Texas, but I am glad that you finally have some relief from your drought.

Bob: those egret and insect shots are absolutely great!!!

(You should share those with the guys over a Phoenix Rising.)

Fantastic shoots Bob, the last one is my favorite.

I hope everything is OK with you and yours with the crazy weather down there.

Bob, excellent details on the 2 Egret head shots, the dragon fly and the butterfly. This is a really good lens and it seems like the TC is working out well!
