More Hummingbirds

Teleconverter test

Another hummingbird shot - experimenting with the MC-14 Teleconverter on the M.Zuiko 40-150 Pro at 150 for an equivalent reach of 420mm, or ((150mm X 1.4) X 2x Mu4/3 Crop).


With the MC-14 mounted, you lose two stops, from a maximum aperture of 2.8, to 4 (40-150 Pro lens).  Not a problem where there is plenty of light.  Switched to minified AF points - this is a lesser issue when not using the teleconverter, but is a neccesity when using it.

ISO noise is signficantly enhanced when shooting thru the teleconverter.  I captured some otherwise great images of hummingbirds in flight before I realized that I need to drop ISO down to min levels to eliminate this effect and enjoy significantly sharper images.
