This article discusses my favourite M.Zuiko lens, the reasons behind this choice, as well as sharing a range of photographs captured with it. After creating well over 100,000 images with my M4/3 camera gear over the past 18 months or so, one lens stands out as my favourite M.Zuiko lens. The M.Zuiko PRO 40-150 mm f/2.8 zoom.
This article shares my M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS hands-on review, and features a wide selection of images captured with this lens. As I’ve mentioned in other articles, this is not a gear review website. I only do reviews of camera equipment that I actually own and use.
So, this M.Zuiko 100-400 review is based on first-hand experiences as an owner of this particular zoom lens. Since receiving it in late November, I’ve been out in the field regularly, capturing thousands of photographs, in a range of conditions.
This short article discusses the practical considerations of using the in-lens IS of the M.Zuiko 100-400 IS, and shares some sample images.

The skill set of photographers when shooting with long telephoto zoom lenses can vary significantly. It’s my view that reporting keeper rates is more about the skill of the photographer than the capabilities of a particular camera or lens… so I don’t bother with such ‘statistics’.

This article provides my first impressions about using the E-M1X’s Bird AI for birds in flight, as well as sharing a selection of sample photographs. Unfortunately the selection of birds at this particular time of year is limited.
One of the toughest image focus challenges for a camera is when a bird is flying straight into the lens. This article shares a series of 9 consecutive photographs of a gull flying straight into the lens of my E-M1X when I was using Bird Detection AI to acquire focus.
Since selling my full frame camera gear back in July 2015 I’ve had the opportunity to use a few different smaller sensor birding equipment options. Continue reading Smaller Sensor Birding Equipment Options
I was out with my camera gear yesterday and discovered my bird photography sweet spot. The added enjoyment that this creates is hard to explain. Suffice to say I was having so much fun that I lost some of my concentration on fundamentals, and made a couple of rookie mistakes.
