    Default Fawns with the 150/2.0

    White-tailed deer twin fawns shot with the E-5 & Oly 150/2.0, some with 1.4X tc and some with the 2X (I can't tell which one, without looking it up.) ISO ranged from 400-800, F8-9, S 1/800- 1/1600", IS1, from blind, hand-held, cropped about half.
    --This lens is so remarkable!! Most of the wildlife shots I do are of birds, where you need all the reach possible, but for some larger items, like these deer, this is a "wildlife lens," also. ~Ken

    Great shots, I wish I could hold that steady. Have to use the tripod more and more.

    They really are Audubon quality that's for sure!!
    Wow, I really wish I could afford a couple of SHG lenses....
    My problem is that even if I could, I doubt I could convince the wife that it would be money well spent! Although I might be the Prime Minister, I made her Minister of Finance so I'm screwed!

    Fantastic shots, Ken. I have the 150 and the EC's, but not the time yet to get out there and use them to full advantage. Looking forward to retirement to allow me that time to practice, practice, practice.

    Nicely done Ken, lenses like the 150 are only a dream for me, but they still need to be in the right hands. The clarity if that's the right term is outstanding.

    Ken -

    These are awesome! In checking the EXIF data I noted that the first three images had a focal lenth of 212mm, so I suspect they were shot w/ the 150 + EC 14; images four and five showed a focal length of 300mm, so they must've been shot w/ the 150 + the EC 20.

    I'm absolutely dumbfounded by the image quality that the 150/f2 captures - w/ + w/o either EC.

    I don't know quite yet how, but somehow I have got to get my hands on an SHG 150/f2, no doubt about it!!! I may never be able to afford either of the SHG 'Big Guns (90-250/f2.8 & 300/f2.8) but the 150/f2 and a couple ECs are another matter.

    Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    Thanks, everyone. (I was out of state for a week & no computer.) Yes, the 150/2 is a marvelous lens, and any degrading by teleconverters is, I think, trivial. I hope to use it more often in the future. ~ Ken
