Ok, we all have some pics in the DB and this is just a big goal itslef for most of us. But which is your next challenge in aviation photography ? A cockpit shot ? A shot made with the "panning" tecnique ? A night shot ?

I would like to be able to make high quality and interesting photos at bad weather conditions such as rain, dust fog and grey sky. These are the weather conditions at my home area for the most time so I try and try and try....

Zuiko Digital 50-200mm f2.8-3.5
Zuiko Digital 1.4x converter
The above combination will give me a lens that is a 140-560, adding 260mm to my present maximum.
I really want to go spotting at EWR to get some widebodies. I don't get to go often, and here at ABE there's rarely anything really interesting, unless US sends a special-scheme aircraft, or if there's a diversion.

For me, a top of the day shot - Only ever been as high as 3.
But more importantly I'd love to have the opportunity of doing some Air 2 Air of something like a 737 or bigger of course. I've done heaps of small aircraft but would like to try something bigger and faster.
Tripod heads can, I know, but I haven't been lucky with a tripod (the head is fixed), and its head is a bad one. When using the 70-200 f/4L with the tripod mount ring, the handle has to be faced forward to be able to put the camera on with the grip. It's a real pain in the neck to remove the E1 and grip only to get the handle in the back. I guess I'll be panning on little higher speed in hotter weather, shaky hands is a no-no when panning, IMO, and probably IOO too.

Quoting Rotate (Reply 22): A more "stabalized" vertical movement .... , so what?
Yes, of course. And it will also get rid of some inevitable shake of your hands.
And it will let you shoot much longer. I've done a few panning sessions and after a while a long lens will droop unless you have big arms.
