    • Two bald eagles in a sitka spruce tree near Soldovia, AK - believe it or not, I still haven't done my final pass from this year's eagle trip back in March. I liked this image and processed it yesterday. Shot w/ Get Olympus OMD EM1 MK II, Olympus 300 f/4 Pro Lens with Olympus 1.4 TC, - EFL of 840mm - ISO 800, 1/1250 at f/8 - handheld - #MadeWithLuminar

      P.S. It was a good day - there was snow on the tree limbs - sometimes those small extras make a photograph really special.

    • Love the snow on the limbs! A little snow is always a great dressing. Hand held at 840mm is quite impressive. That is one reason, I like my Panasonic Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400 on my Lumix DMC-GX8.

      Can you offer a brief comparison of the Olympus OMD EM1 Mk II with the latest Lumix DMC-G9, which I have been lusting over?

      I use a Lumix GX7 frequently as my "museum walk through" camera body with a Leica 45mm macro lens, and I recently let my Olympus OMD EM1 go to a friend who needed a smaller body. I even have a GH2 converted to IR SuperColor that I occaisionally play with.

      I shot film on OM1s, OM2s, and and OM4 T in the past, all of which I still possess - so I am a genuine fan of Olympus, even though my current main cameras are Canon. I guess I am kind of AC/DC about FF vs m4/3 - I lack commitment maybe 😛

      I am still mining images of eagles of mine that I captured over several trips to Alaska and Canada - shot with both formats.

      I shoot a lot of creatures besides eagles, but eagles are the most prominent images on my home page right now -https://pathfinder.smugmug.com

    • Thanks for your comment. I cannot give you a detailed break down on the Panasonic v. the Olympus. I can tell you that in what tests I have done, the Olympus offers superior IS/Sync IS and faster/better tracking AF. Image quality is similar.
