    Great shot, Don! Just the right amount of detail in the background. Could perhaps be a little darker and have a touch more contrast to set the Gannet off more.
    How does the AF work for such shots? S-AF or C-AF?

    Thanks Daniel.
    AF both, in a word, poor. Sometimes a sequence of 5 or 6 would be ok, but the images with the most interesting composition, wave formation etc were usually OOF. Sod's Law! Of course the birds were whistling through at high speed, but I'm giving the camera a last chance comparison test for this subject early evening today. Other subjects, no problem.

    Cheers,
    Don

    PS. I used the m43 75-300mm today on the EM1 for gannets. It does have a better C-AF performance than the 150mmF2 did at the same gannet venu. Frustrating, but less so.

    Thanks Mike. It was a wild old day which made for an interesting sea.
