Two things to remember, because I'm shooting Micro Four Thirds, the lens is the equivalent to a 200-600 mm lens when shooting 35mm. Second, I'm sharing screen shots of images here on this post and they're still sharp!
John Wagner was the president of Hasselblad UK for many years and was involved with Hasselblad USA in the interim just before I joined the company as president in 1987. In the 80's he was working on a project taking statements from the Bible and matching them with contemporary images. He was shooting near a military air strip in Israel photographing some fairly large cargo planes all with propellers.
This all took place approximately 30 years ago and there was no chimping! Shooting everything on film, he got back to London and sent all his film to the lab. Sadly he'd been shooting everything at too fast a shutter speed and every prop was stopped in mid-air, creating an incredible collection of impossible to use images!
Well, helicopters and prop planes should always be photographed in shutter priority at less than 1/125 of a second. Yesterday I just wasn't paying attention and was around 1/1000 of a second!
What can I say? It's hard to get good help! LOL
However, considering how high up the helicopter was, I was delighted with the sharpness.
