Took my 40-150 mm lens out today on a winter's hike. Put my new 2x teleconverter on it...wanted to see if it was sharp. That part kicks the lens up to an equivalent 600mm fframe. Hand held shots, except the moon. Birds will tell the tale on sharpness....some of the hardest critters to get sharp. 1917



Beech leaves in the winter sunlight.



Mahonia blooms. Wish deer would eat these and leave my other plants alone.



Tonight's moon.

I have shot the Tamron equivalent of the 150-600 at Yellowstone a few years back when my in-laws offered to let me use it. I have still yet to pick one up though even though it is on my wanted list.

Speaking of older cameras, I still have my original 35mm rangefinder, an Argus C3.

Awesome pictures, 1917...

I've yet to take any pictures with the (MFT) 100-300. Mrs. Cow has taken it for herself, and won't give it back.
She likes it WAY better than her Sony.

Wimmen...!!

Thanks COW 54. I have friends who are into birding photography. I'm not although I'll take a shot here and there. Their gear is too heavy, expensive and they work too hard at it for my tastes. But they get some truly professional shots. All are using $5K Cannon or Nikon bodies with those huge 600mm f4 lenses. I would find a lens like that a bit too hard to use unless it was constantly on a tripod and I had a lot of patience. Kinda like trying to hunt with a 24x scope. Since I like hiking and photography is just a hobby....I'm trying to keep the IQ up and the weight down. I also don't like printed photos for art. I like oil, acrylic or watercolor. Photos just don't do it for me but I have certainly seen some beautiful examples. I take photos of about everything I run into that is interesting to me.

Got my Son the new Oly OM-D MK 10 or something like that. Can't keep their model numbering system straight. The new one now has a built in flash, but still has a hot shoe, runs 4K video and they have dropped a lot of items from the menu that only professionals use anyway. They did make a shortcut to some of the features that require you to otherwise dig deep into the menu...like live composite. And, he can use my lenses on it. Will see if he develops any interest. 1917
