My old camera died. These taken on handed down Panasonic Lumix DC-G9 with Leica 100-400 lens, from a buddy who moved up to a full frame Canon. Took it for first walk today, pretty pleased with results for hand held walkabout, over 50% crop on each shot at max zoom of 400mm (that's 800mm equiv 35mm). Before I could start to think of what replacement camera I might get it seems my 'new' camera found me. First two shots in sunshine, second pair of shots in low light/shadows. The Merlin's feathers certainly look a bit soft focus but Sun had gone down and light was fading fast and I am hand holding at about 50ft away, so overall pleased with first outing.
Driving and hiking our way across east Africa for 15th Wedding Anniversary and boated up the Nile yesterday to Murchison Falls in Uganda. Tons of wildlife photography opportunities along the shore as animals sought the cooling waters, including this wonderful male elephant knee deep in the river. G9 with PL 100-400. I got the picture just when he flared his ears and trumpeted to let us know we had drifted close enough.
