It was a clear winter afternoon, the gusty wind packed an insane chill factor, cannot see any birds at all! Not even the long legged humanoid kind!
Half way up the mountain I noticed some IRON BIRDS negotiating the Wellington blow to land on this windy Capital.
I parked the car and became a plane spotter!
The chunky Leica zoom is quite heavy mounted on the just as chunky Lumix GX8, the total weight was quite a handful standing in the very strong southerlies.
I could have use my monopod but I want to find out what it is like hand holding this set up.
Surprisingly, the big 100-400 balance really well on the Lumix GX8. The GX8, I think is the ideal camera body for this lens. A smaller body like the GX85 will not balance as well.
