      I didn't turn IS off DOH!! Well, there's always next time

      My images are now up in another thread in foto fair. The IQ wasn't great because of the big crops I had to go for, and I think the IS caused a lot of the images to be out of focus

      Yeay! IS just keeps searching rather than tracking in focus I made this mistake and someone on here (PeterD) helped me to get to know my E-5 as I upgraded from E-1 (so I had missed loads of tricks developed between the models)

      Sometimes I find it best to start with lens back at say 70 and focus manually and then let AF and CAF get stuck on

      Now is a good time - the Red Kites need EVEN more food for the young I may go back this weekend ... now my E-5 is working superbly

      popping over to FF to search for yours !
