.....fun and really nice images Fred.

I may, this summer, replace my FT 70-300 and thinking a m75-300 II might be my choice. The 'OLD' FT 70-300 is getting mighty loose, way much use from it.

Nice shots, Fred. I especially like the feather detail that you captured in the bird shot.

Nice shots, your RedPoll looks alot like a gold finch in non-breeding plumage, I see in all about birds that they are very similar, I'll have to keep that in mind as I may have miss-identified a few as golf finches.

Great shots Fred, focus spot on, nice & sharp. It's a great lens the 75-300mm. Your spot on about the E-M10 & 75-300mm being a good combo took some photos at the Superbikes with the same setup a couple weeks back and thought the same thing. Throw in the kit lens and you have an excellent relatively cheap two lens kit covering a huge focal range.
