      Very, very nice image of a bird I haven't seen or heard recently!

      Also, 300mm @ 1/30 - impressive!

        It really depends what you shot it with IMO

        How about this taken one handed with an E-M5 mk1 and 14-42EZ lens at 1/6 sec while holding the shutter release for my E-M1 with the othetr hand.

            Here are a couple from Crete, the harbour area of Agios Nikolaos by night. The combination of the E-M1 Mk2 and 12-100 f/4 is ludicrously capable of sharp, hand-held images at slow shutter speeds. Both of these were taken hand-held, standing up and not braced on anything. I try to emulate marksmen by exhaling before the shot, seems to work

            This one was 8 seconds, there is movement as you'd expect in the boat bobbing about but by zooming in to the buildings in the distance I can read the logo of the restaurant just above the bow:-

            The second one was taken at 5 seconds and looks very sharp even zoomed in:-

            Twice now I've packed a small tripod when travelling to Crete and have never got it out of the bag. I'll leave it at home next time

              Just to get something on the board, here's a treed leopard in the Okavango: 300mm f4.0 at 1/80s.

              I have got sharp images with the 300/1.4 at 1/80s in the past, but they're pretty uninteresting: I'm still working on my Botswana shots and I believe I've got some more at that sort of speed to come...

              Too much Oly gear.
              Panasonic GM5, 12-32, 12-35, 15, 35-100, Laowa 7.5.
              Assorted legacy lenses, plus a Fuji X70 & a Sony A7S.
