Went out to photograph the marsh wrens at the Great Meadows NWR yesterday. The wrens were there but the windy conditions kept them deep in the reeds. I had taken my Lumix 100-300 lens on the Olympus OM-D E-M1 body. I have a lens collar and at the foot manufactured by Roesch – www.r-roesch.de which really helps with this lens when mounted to a tripod.
As there was not much in the vicinity I took a few shots of a Red-wing Blackbird – the bird was a little spec in the frame as you can see from the image below. The full image may be seen by clicking on the image itself.
The next image is a crop from the region where the bird was sitting. Except for RAW conversion and a slight opening of the shadows, no other post processing has been done. Click to open the image at 100%
For the price this is an exceptional lens and hope Panasonic make a G X version of this lens soon.
