    Went to the bird park today to shoot the birds and push the camera. All images ooc so forgive me for low contrast shots due to blurring the fence

    This was taken with the 40-150mm pro lens, extremely sharp! The sharpness of this lens with even the entry level E-M10 reminds me of the quality from the Zuiko Digital 300mm f2.8 lens!



    Spotted a little friend who doesn't belong at the bird park, but it gives a nice contrast against the flamingos, again, really really sharp lens! I'm really impressed with it! Again, the 40-150mm pro



    40-150mm pro



    40-150mm pro



    Sad that I'm a little too short for this shot and I caught the tree just in front of me, 40-150mm pro and the MC14 teleconverter

    40-150mm pro and the MC14 teleconverter



    40-150mm pro and the MC14 teleconverter, on a side note, I swear this toucan was trolling me by running away just as I got the lens to focus manually



    40-150mm pro and the MC14 teleconverter, low contrast due to the fence



    This shot I'll speak more, it's an buffy fish owl, so? I shot this at ISO 12,800 and it's relatively clean, especially for a small sensor camera! I am really surprised and pleased! The 5 axis IS helped with shooting this a 1/13s, f2.8 approximately 80mm (160mm equivalent). Didn't help that there wasn't a pronounced grip and so this came as a surprise



    Again shot with ISO 12,800, this one looks better for some reason, still pretty sharp!

    ISO 3200, 1/10s, the 5 axis really saved me more times than I can count



    Looks like a happy owl hahah! This was shot at ISO 3200 because there was more light, since the natural environment is snowy and can be reasonably bright in some cases (AFAIK)

    The AF from EM10MarkII doesn't have a discernible difference/improvements, which is already fast to begin with, shooting kids was a breeze last weekend. Thumb AF as much as it sounds good to use, it didn't turn out to be very smooth or easy to use for me. I stuck to S-AF at a predetermined spot, and at times touch AF, that's where 5 axis really helps at the longer tele end, as I find touch AF on the screen is still the fastest method of grabbing a focus spot. I didn't test C-AF or tracking as it wasn't stated as an improvement, hence it should still be similar to previous OM-D series, there's still some lag in this department.

    Here's some shot with S-AF at one spot/touch AF. All with 40-150mm F2.8 Pro, mostly OOC jpeg

    150mm, F2.8, ISO200. 1/640s


    64mm, F2.8, ISO200, 1/1000s


    150mm, F2.8, ISO200, 1/2000s

    WongLP was telling me how he got a shot at 1 second handheld so I did my own test, shot just last night 1 second handheld. Even with a wide angle lens, 1 second is no easy feat



    Built in keystone will crop your image, so you gotta have a wide angle lens and stand further, but like the previous models, it works really well



    Handles exposures pretty well. Even without an CPL filter, as usual, Olympus cameras will show the blues even though the sky's blue was pale to the point it was greyish



    Soft focus art filter


    Grainy film art filter

    Grainy film art filter



    Sepia art filter, under by a stop to get a darker picture, but might have underexposed it a little bit too much



    Apparently, this is a warning but I found it rather cute, grainy film art filter



    Pop art filter, focus with the pro lens is fast enough to capture my friend and I walking at slightly different speeds



    I rarely use the diorama filter, but it sure looks great when it works, the flip out screen aided in getting this shot

    So... Only just recently did I realized that there's another new feature known as focus bracketing, basically it's bracketing but for focus for macro shoots to achieve deep depth of field through a technique known as focus stacking. Only sad part is that flash cannot be used, so I gotta use constant light, of which I only have 1 of.

    Read the manual to learn new features hahahah! The bracketing works by focusing the point closest to the camera, in my example, that would be the hand and then it will bracket its focusing from the closest to the further. As far as I can tell, it will take shots constantly until it hits infinity or you press the shutter again to stop. Depending on the settings such as aperture which will define your depth of field, focusing distance, subject to background distance, you may need a couple of shots to many shots.

    In the 2 examples, I needed 5 and 13 shots to get everything in focus. The results of each shot can be seen on screen as it passes through making it easy and fast to do a stacked image.

    The images are raw converted in Viewer 3 and then stacked in Photoshop CC without addition touchup, so results may not be perfect, especially in the close up when I looked full size on my screen, his kabuto is clearly not all in focus.

    Taken with the M.ZD 12-40 PRO, I don't have any macro lenses for m43 so I cannot get super close, settings are ISO200, 1/400s f4
