    First 70-300 test shots

    I just bought an Oly 70-300 .
    There is a 140-600 mm equiv. label on the lense
    So ..... What do I have a 70-300 or 140-600 ??

    So far the test shots are fine IMO. I can't complain
    Here is 1 sample Right out of the camera only re-size
    Cloudy outside
    Hand Held , 300mm ISO 800 f 5.6 shutter speed 800 ( I shake alot )
    The apple is approx 13m from me.

    Re: First 70-300 test shots

    Congratulations on your new lens. The subject is nice and sharp, especially for handheld at 300 (600)mm. I did some research on this lens and it's an excellent lens, especially for the price. It has it's limits.....not good in low light, etc. But most people don't use 300mm too much in low light.

    You probably already know this, but if you separate your subject further from the background, you can get some nice smooth bokeh with this lens. Works nicely for flowers, birds, and portraits. It takes a bit of practice though.

    you have a 70-300mm but with the 4/3rds sensor that equals 140-600mm in 35mm terms. I love this lens for macro/close focusing work.
