I am starting to think this lens to be much better than what I thought. The animals pictures above are quite good.
It is definitely a lens that punches way above of its weight class.

The PLM might not match the highest grade professional lenses around, and it definitely is slow if you really truly need low f-stops (but really this is no longer so big a deal these days with modern hi-ISO-capable sensors), but it is very, very good.

On the water in my boat it is almost always the lens I mount for targets-of-opportunity.
