        1. Before this, the longest lens I had was on my Panasonic FZ-1000 camera that does everything camera, but the quality I was getting wasn’t great. Okay — not great. I have better cameras — my Olympus OMDs (I have two of them — older and newer. They use interchangeable lenses.

          I hate changing lenses. I always have. Lazy, I know, but once I have a lens on the camera, I just want to use it, but it was obvious I needed something different this time. So I bought a 100-300 lens for it. It’s a true “birding” lens. All the reviews were from other people who shoot birds and other wildlife and they all said this was a really great lens. It’s a Panasonic 4/3 (same format, different manufacturer). I bought it.

          I don’t change it often. I use the OTHER camera to change lenses and I keep this on pretty much all the time and also keep it on the table near the feeders.

          1. My camera is locked in my car in the garage from today’s wildlife walk.

            It’s almost 11:00PM here in England and the end of my day so I will check my camera lens tomorrow, I’m ashamed to admit I don’t know what I have!

            1. Well, if you don’t know, it’s probably nothing special. If you are going to get serious about shooting bird pix, you have to spend the money on the lens and it took me years to finally decide to do it. It wasn’t an easy decision. We have very little money, so buying the lens meant that something else we needed to do wasn’t getting done. But I REALLY wanted the lens. Hard choices. I understand. I really, really do.
