^nice duck!

the old 100-400mm is still working, one day it might get replaced but not at moment...

went to see if the Mosquito was flying yesterday, came away with a few Spitfire shots instead. A bit hazy but you get the idea.

I'm looking for a a cheap zoom. I don't have a zoom and sometimes, every now and then I would like to have one. don't know to go for a 70-200 or 100-400 (from sigma or tamron)

Anyway there is a new garden at the Hamilton Gardens. It's called the Mansfield garden (https://hamiltongarden​s.co.nz …mansfield-garden-opening/ (external link)) All the sets and stuff are made from concrete.

Well this is the best I could do. Manual focus and no zoom but I got a bigger view finder.

If I had 5DS I would have HDMI and the DSLR app works fully but at this stage have to not spend any more :)

without some sort of external controlled follow-focus type mechanism on the zoom ring, most dslr's and even mirrorless bodies are in the same boat.

Yeah, 'cos most zooms, apart from some point and shoot, are manually operated only, so therefore there would be no controller circuit.

The newer models of camera use different type of OS and touch focus works, Its more to deal with my composition and getting that nailed view finder to small. I can also get phone to display full view with out any of the controls showing

Just a random shot of the dog while walking after work this afternoon/evening. Ddidn't quite nail focus I think. Cute as he is, he was in the dog box, because he had rolled somewhere, which I wasn't aware of, until we got into the car! He now smells of lavender :-)

There are a couple of Panasonic m43 power zoom lenses. I got the 14-42pz with my first m43 camera, and it was ok but not great, but it was tiny when powered off. Ultimately it was replaced by a better lens and I sold it last year with the camera. There was also a 45-175pz that I have no experience with, but I think the general opinion from those who have used it is that if you don’t need the power zoom there are better options. The zoom could be controlled from a leaver on the lens, remotely from the Panasonic app on a phone, or there were a couple of bodies that also had a zoom lever on them. I don’t think they were a market success because they didn’t stay around for long.

One of the things I just love about the M5 is focus peaking with manual lenses. My eyesight not crash hot any more, and I enjoy some older lenses - the focus peaking is ace, even if I have a bit to go to master it :-)
