Thank you all for your comments and advice.
I DID manage to get the magnifier to work, Moose, and now it is almost second nature to me. I also managed to get reasonable images from the Zuiko 35-70 f/3.6 and the 35-80 f.2,8; but the 100/2 seems sharpest of all. It's amazing - when I was lusting after the 35-80 some 15 +_ years ago, it was priced at $4000 NZ. I bought my current model within the last 12 months for about $350NZ from Japan. Now the Sony E 100-400 which apparently is razor sharp, is priced at about 4000. I can't see me getting one.

Yes, Chris, it IS rather desolate and that is not unusual for landscapes here.

The lighting was pretty terrible, but I was determined to test the 100/2 regardless. It did not disappoint. That subject CAN have some very moody shots. Frank, I had a good look at your wonderful 35-80 shots. I presume you used a tripod, which would have helped with the quality. One thing I noticed with using the magnifier and hand holding - even against something solid, was the mini-vibrations the camera was subject to. 1/4000 shutter speed probably helped overcome them.

Regards to all, Brian
