First image with new lens
Lens: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 150-400mm f/4.5 TC1.25X IS PRO Camera: Olympus EM1X micro 4/3 ISO: 1250 Shutter Speed: 1/1500s Aperture: F5.6

It arrived late yesterday. It's a beautiful lens.
I don't know how to work it yet. lol
Good indications so far though. The lens is enormous but not as enormous as a canon or Nikon equivalent.
It will be hard to hold at 1000mm, even harder at 1400mm.
Too early to tell if it will help, or hurt my game.
I don't know the lens yet. It's big and unwieldy.
Turn quickly the wrong way and someone is standing there that you didn't see, and you could knock them out cold as a cucumber.
Hope you guys are well,
LS

Wow, your photo looks superb, and congrats on the new big lens! I'm guessing you had quite a long wait for it...

Thanks fellas.
The lens is nice. Like really nice. But I don't know it yet.
This is the same bird about to put the dragonfly down the hatch.

The depth of what this camera can do, hasn't been tapped by me, that's for sure. You can micro manage anything.
And the damn thing is fast. It's not the latest greatest , but, to every latest greatest, another comes along with a heavy price tag as a door prize.

Better to learn what you have and realize the small differences in marketing hype, can't overcome ones use of light.
Do I need 18 frames per second? When 4 frames per second can do the trick? Or 30 frames per second when 18 can,, more than do it ?
These images could have been better. I just got this lens and I didnt expect to run up on somethng like these two photos.
Both were shot at 1000mm (35mm ( full frame) equivalent) using a 1.25 teleconverter.
Hand held.

I could have stopped down one stop and knocked the shutter speed down which would have knocked the ISO down.
I screwed this up. I could have had this at ISO 800 or less instead of 1250. Both images would have looked better.
But in my defense , this did kind of happen fast. And I don't know how to use this lens.

The lens is also fitted with a Hoya 95mm UV (0) - the good one. First thing.
I use them on every lens after exploring things for a while. You know what I mean.
Switched from Pentax to Olympus, because I decided to go mirrorless.Very nearly went Pentax Full Frame K1.
So, Now, I'm on a Pentax forum shooting Olympus. To this day, I don't think any of todays cameras can compensate for user skill.
Learned that the hard way.

Anyway, enough of my dumb rant.
I hope you're well today, Mike.

Well, I reckon the thing seems to work. That bird sure looks downright delighted with his meal. And the fact that I thought about that means that the picture was so good, I didn't think about the fact that it was a picture at all, got sucked in by the subject which you depicted brilliantly. I suppose the lens contributed somewhat.
