    Hi David,

    Did you shoot with the lens at 2.8?
    Ebay is not finding Japancamera could it have been Japan Camera Hunter?

    Chit Chat Re: where did everybody go!

    David,

    Please tell me how you got the 4/3rds "300 F2.8 from Japan a couple of months ago for $2350." B&H has a couple used ones for around $4000.

    Thanks,

    All,

    Thanks for the advice so far. I assume then I would be ok with buying a used Metabones adapter?

    Dan,

    I use the 75-300 II most of the time but the birds/mammals are either too small or too far away most of the time (even with the digital crop). I also use the 75-300 at f/8. I rented the...

    It is tempting to go the way you have since the mFT 300/4 costs more than the Canon 400/5.6+metabones adapter.

    Does the mark II work faster/better with the Canon+Metabones setup?

    Dan,

    It sounds like you use the combo handheld most of the time. Good thing you saved f/w v2.1 as I don't see it on the metabones site.

    Dan,

    That web page says "Accurate only on newer cameras such as Panasonic G7, GX8 and GX80/85" but I understand from your postings that your technique with f/w 2.1 works well w/ the em-1.

    When you are not using your action finder are you using a tripod with gimbal head?

    Are there more than one version of the Canon 400/5.6? Is this with the Metabones smart adapter with the pdaf support?
