A migration of enormous Turkey Vultures passed over my house in southern Oregon yesterday. Spinning in geometric patterns similar to those they seem to adopt when descending for a meal, but this time, they were moving, in a progressively southwards direction. I took several shots---

All with the X Vario Lumix 45-175 zoom, which seems surprisingly compact, almost svelte, mounted on my GX-8 ---

The combined AF of both the lens and the camera body seemed to get the job done---

And...damn! I've never seen so many vultures flying together, before---

You appear to have a chunk of dust on your sensor. I like the vulture shots though.

Thanks, Graham.
I noticed it as well, afterwards.
And in fact it was plainly visible upon the surface of my sensor.
Quick fix #1 - using an air blower (to blow the offending spot 'off' the sensor) didn't work.
But quick fix #2 - using a very fine brush to sweep the offending dust chunk off - DID work.
So...problem solved! 🤓

Some folks think that a 10X zoom doesn’t achieve adequate bokeh.
Not me. It's one of those white elephants in the room, that in the right hands, a long zoom with a relatively low aperture can achieve as good and often better results as an F1.2 when it comes to blown out areas. Those low aperture zooms just aren't sexy enough for most people though. One could debate the rendering of the blown out areas (bokeh balls etc), but that's subjective and the same thing applies with prime lenses.
