Using the new Olympus 40-150 Pro at Cheltenham Racecourse yesterday

OM-D E-M1 with 2.1 firmware working really well; this is the 32nd frame in a continuous sequence:



My framing at this point was a bit out but the 100% crop was very rewarding for me



This was at 210mm using the 1.4x converter too. f/5.6, 1/400th, ISO 500

Nice capture, Ian. Shows the lens and converter in a good light.

Thumbs up Re: Using the new Olympus 40-150 Pro at Cheltenham Racecourse yesterday

I love trying out new kit, and when told that you are one of the first of the "normal" people to get to use it, then it just makes the whole experience that much better...

As I always do, I look to push the kit to the limits, in a "real world" situation just to see what I can get away with.

This is with the 40-150 + 1.4 converter at full stretch.



This is 100% from about the middle:



I have to admit I often find the antics of people far more interesting than animals.



But I truly believe this gorgeous creature found us to be a lot less so...



The owl treated us with complete indifference



But "Frodo" the fox at least made the effort to make eye contact



Sincere thanks has to go to the Olympus Team for providing such a great day and yet another brilliant lens.
