    Strangely very likeable Raven I like the second one best, nice reflections in the wet road but I'd have cropped the white line off the bottom. Did you use one of the art filters for these?
    Don I bet those hummers are hard to shoot, I have enough trouble with our local sparrows! nice one.

    Hi Phil,

    They are a bit of a challenge but the funny thing is in hindsight, each improvement in my technique comes with a "duh", why didn't I think of that sooner moment

    The male has been here for about a week and yesterday the female arrived.

    Not great conditions but I've been waiting all winter for this









    Cheers, Don

    Nice shot Builder.

    Don,

    I guess I am committed to the 50-200 now. Adorama got it shipped under the Olympus rebate wire. Does this mean I need to save up for the EC14? Make it stop... I think I hear my wife opening my credit card bills...

    LOL, imagine how hard it is for me with no one to look at me sideways

    I had the ec14 and decided it wasn't enough so I went for the ec20. From 280mm to 400mm is a big deal, even with the loss of another stop of light.

    Cheers, Don

    The EC-20 has a reputation of degrading image quality without very, very careful usage, though. The 50-200MM + EC-14 is a very highly regarded combination.

    P.S. Yes, I'm still alive, just no time for shooting lately because of work and health issues.

    I've also read that about the ec20 degrading image quality but after using/owning both I haven't experienced it

    My 50-200 arrived this morning. Still as heavy as I remember it. At least I now know how to remove the tripod collar. Never figured that out when I rented which made for some awkward handholding. A couple of quick shots from around the office parking lot both pretty close up.

    Very patriotic shot builder24car.

    Don, at the moment I can't see yours because I am not bypassing the firewall.

    The 50-200mm looks nice, contrastier than the 70-300 and some other quality i can't quite identify. I want a nice long lens but so far I can't justify it.

    Reasons Why 70-300mm is better
    1 cheaper
    2 lighter
    3 longer focal length
    4 killer macro ability

    Reasons why 50-200 is better
    1 larger aperture
    2 better image quality
    3 faster focusing
    4 better construction (but actually that matters less to me)

    Basically, Olympus needs to make a lens with one more reason before I upgrade.
