Default Kayaking

Here some shots of my kids kayaking at the local lake. I'm really liking the 40-150mm f2.8 Pro more & more every time I use it.

Oh geez, what great photos and so sharp and colorful. That must be one sweet lens. Were you using the teleconverter for that lens?

Thanks James, sure is a sweet lens very sharp even wide open. None of these were taken with the TC. Planning a trip to the zoo in the next few days with the kids, will try out the TC on the 40-150. Going to mainly use this lens with the E-M1 (haven't tried this lens at the zoo yet) and let my son shoot with E-M10 & 70-300. Will try the E-M10 a bit as well, purchased it on sale a few months a go to use as a second body.

I was using the 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 Zuiko back when my daughter was in high school and really enjoyed it. This 40-150 might not reach that far natively, but I like it better. As your kids get older it's going to be a great lens to have around.

Nice shots. I think my favorite is shot 6 where you captured the large cascade of water drops flying off the oar.

Great set Tom,

The pictures look very sharp and crispy, did you shoot it form a kayak?

Thanks Greg & Steven for looking & the comments.

Thanks Marcelo, no I didn't shoot from the kayak, I know there weather proof but I'm not that brave.
