    was this a big crop .. currently in a quandary on whether to sell my PL100-400 and get a 300mm f4 simply for the better i.q and faster aperture ..

    Just checked - cropped to about 45% on image width based on the original on Flickr is 2408px wide. I find the 300 F4 supports cropping even down to 1:1 for record shots.

    • I agree with MJ224 that the 300/4 is the better lens. It goes remarkably well with the MC20 for bird photography. However there are plenty of occasions when a prime is not the ideal solution and for those you need the versatility of the 100-400. I shall be taking both to the Kruger when we go in a couple of months.

        • Has anyone used the panasonic 100-300 ii with EM1 MK2 for birding and bif?

          Would be interested to know your thoughts and if you have any example pics taken with that combination would be great to see.

                • That's a lovely shot Phill. Taken with the 40-150 Pro and MC-20 no doubt.

                  • Thanks Ron, yes it certainly was. I gave it about a 50% crop as well so maybe I do need the 300mm f4 after all .

                    • There's an oak tree in our neighbour's garden which overhangs ours. It's reckoned to be about 250 years old and gets a haircut every ten years or so to keep it in good shape. The last one, three years ago, left a short branch which is much favoured by kites. They're very canny and don't like having a long lens pointed at them so I have to sit well back in the office or else they fly off just as I'm about to press the shutter. Taken through the double glazing with the EM1ii and 100-400. OOC JPG. I had to crop in order to reduce it to a size that the site would accept.
