    Just a couple.

    A bit of sharpening on each, as well as cropping. Shot in jpg, not even RAW. I think my FZ is better than I think it is. Does that make sense?

    Shag drying his feathers. Mostly unconcerned about my being only 3 yards from him, but keeping an eye on me.

    They look very good to me, Sue. I've never shot one so I can't comment more but I like the images.

    I really like the shag pic, Sue. It looks like a kind of furry cormorant.

    It makes perfect sense to me, that we can sometimes forget how good a particular camera is, or sometimes that the SOOC jpeg is perfectly and surprisingly OK.

    Thanks, folks :)

    @ Yeats... It *is* a cormorant. Just that we Aussies also call it a shag (slang) It had been preening and was drying its feathers.

    @ Lili: DO!! I'd love to see more from that one from you.

    I think I'm with Yeats in my desire to get close to the action without having to fuss with lenses. I contemplated taking the K5 and 55-300 but you know I wouldnt have been able to get that cormorant shot, it would have taken off like a rocket. It was far less threatened by the little panny and the XZ (which I also used)

    Cool. I'd name him "Aussie Powers".

    The other side of the equation is, could you crop an image from the K5 + 55-300 and have it look as good as your Panny shot? You'd still need to change lenses, though.

    Thanks Sue, I really like the HS, silent, light if a little bulkier than my phones, LOL. Superb lens, EVF and Battery life.
    PLus I love the results with little Post processing.
    Its a deal then, I have been so not feeling like shooting for so long I will carry the Fuji with me every day for a Month!
