Re: No MFT 2x TC

I think Olympus are doing mft users a favour by not making one. I brought the FT 1.4 and 2x although I only had the 50-200 f3.5 SWD lens. The 2x was very expensive (I assume its complex to make)...

Re: C-AF disappointing

The quick way is in camera. Go to view and press info button until it shows the display with the histogram. The focus point should show as a small green square.

Re: EM1 MKII Lock Up

Were you using a high drive mode. When I first got the MKII I was using a SanDisk Extreme Pro 95 MB/s card and found it too slow for high frame rates where it appeared to freeze but just took a lot...

Hi Tord I would not have thought that your experience with CAF would have been a setting issue given the images that you post. You are a season Olympus pro. I am happy with my copy of the MKII and...

Re: Epping and Ongar Railway

Know about its existence but not visited as near me. Having seen your great image set Dave I will make a note to get there on other steam days.
