    Question Lens focal length enough for bird photography?

    Hi, I am a amateur photographer who is interested in bird photography.

    I have an Olympus 70-300mm lens (140-600mm on Olympus E-510).

    I'm not sure whether is it really 600mm when I zoom it totally.

    Can I have any advice from Olympus users?

    I don't have Oly cams, but for bird photo, one can never have enough FL.

    Yep, for birding, get the longest lens you can afford basically.
    5D Mk II | TS-E 17L | 17-40L | 24-105L IS | 35L | 85L | 70-200 f/2.8L IS | 100L Macro | 580EX II

    seriously if you are an expert. Its not about focal length. birding can even be taken using 100mm to 200mm depending on yr style of approach.
