Hi Just a thought we have so many threads, and all got pretty negative. So I thought about a positive thread.

What I am really REALLY Looking forward too ... with my ONE :cool:


Lens 75-300 M.Zuiko Lens so light (in comparison to old heavy ones) and that extra reach (100 over the 50-200)

Lens M.Zuiko 12-40 - all the reports of the enhanced IQ and this lens are very exciting :)


The ONE using Wifi for remote Shutter operation SO VERY :cool:

The ONE using Wifi for uploading to various websites also, so very :cool:

Not least, Birds in Flight ... after my fantabulous conversation with Matt @ SRS on settings settings settings and the ONE's ability :cool:


What are you so very much looking forward too ?

Getting it!

:)

It's looking as if the shipping time has slipped a little, to late October/Early November, assuming Olympus Support were correct yesterday...

Hope that's a little pessimistic?

If that is the case they had better put back the closing dates for the mmf3 and HLD7 too!

Oh and I am looking forward to selling my EM5 that's listed on here so that the 12-40 is mine too;-)

Chevvy, does that mean you won't be sending me your unwanted E-M1 then? :( I would give it a loving home. ;)

Having used a pink D3200 yesterday I'm looking forward to finding a nice E-1.

oooh! Ross ... I think that the answer is "it is not comfortable on long haul flights ... and does not speak Aus ... so best kept in the UK with ME " :cool:

... sorry *zzz

Had a play yesterday in London and loving the focus peeking.

Being able to shoot sports and wildlife and finding it good enough to sell all my Nikon gear!

Then that 40 -150 f2.8 when it comes out, hopefully later in the year.

Regards

The 40-150 is forecast for the end of next year..... But all good things come to those etc..... :-)

I've been looking for an E-1 for a while now, they all seem to have disappeared from Ontario. I want a basic camera for all my manual focus primes. I'm in a getting back to basics phase.

getting it, hopefully a day or two before I head off on a five day break.
Then learning the Olympus ropes

The fact that I am presently without camera is adding to the anticipation.

Yep, that's what they told me at the Event in London yesterday.

My top five

1) With all the talk about AF I am looking forward to playing with the MF and focus peaking now that I have been able to confirm it works on the bigma.

2) time laps exposures presumably the batteries will last 999 shots:eek:

3) developing exposure

4) sharpness and snappy focus with the 12-40 mm f2.8 pro

5) not having a stiff neck after a days shooting.

That's actually Japan, I believe. ;) :D

Actually, the link isn't working for me.

For those not already linked to it, I created an Evernote OMD Notebook with a lot of information including manuals and the EM1 manual in pdf form. Lots of reviews and set up information as well.

Evernote can be a free product and you can use it on all devices. Mac, windows, android, ipad, iphone etc.

Obviously not an early-adopter, then! :D A school mate brought a very early example to school complete with 50 1.4 in 1975.

No not an early adopter. I didn't like the idea of the shutter speed ring around the lens mount. When I finally tried one the viewfinder was the deciding factor.

I always thought that the shutter speed ring around the lens mount was an advantage, you could quickly adjust shutter and aperture with the same hand. I can still remember the shock of looking through the viewfinder for the first time, coming from a Praktica.

It made sense once you tried it but when you were used to a shutter speed dial in the top plate the idea seemed weird.

The lens release button being on the lens also seemed weird but once you'd used it you realised it was better than being on the camera body.

I'm afraid that my OM1 is collecting dust in a display cabinet with my other ancient cameras. Since going digital I've become lazy and not so willing to put all my eggs in the same basket - still use the 28, 50 and 135 lenses though on my EM5.

Going from Praktika 42mm screw thread to OM-2, the lens release button was in the right place. Grab the lens and twist. I hate that they moved it. I don't know why?

Yes, moving the lens release button to the body was a step backwards.

Typical of the Olympus attention to detail that made the OM series so special.

It would be nice if Olympus made a digital OM based around m4/3 at some point. :D

+1. It was so much easier in those days.
