  • Day 19, Garden Bird.

    Taken through a window, again, a garden ornament. JPEG tweaked in LR 6.
    M1X 300mm Pro + 1.4 converter. 1/60th sec. f6.43 200 ISO, hand held.
    I took 5 shots, 2 were over exposed cos I had turned the front wheel to +3stops, (gotta sort that!)2 were in focus, one was not so sharp as this. So I am pleased with the M1X.

          Yes it was. I could have used a shorter lens too, minus the converter, but I am playing with my new toy, getting used to it.
          Better cock up a shot in my garden than when out doing "serious" stuff.

              Yes Peter, it is not so easy but I hope to complete the year.
              I will probably just use the M1X with the 300mm pro, I have yet to use it with the 40-150mm yet. The Mk 2 I will use for other stuff. M1X is bulkier,heavier than the Mk2, but it suits the 300mm.
              I had intended to replace the mk2 with the M1X but now I would like to keep them both, I will probably sell my Pen F to help fund the M1X.
