Re: Old 300mm Lens

I saw that lens in the window of Aylesbury Oxfam several weeks ago (and have also resisted on a few subsequent occasions).

Re: Sad, if true

They were previously listed as discontinued on Japanese sites in 2017.

In June last year I had one (with 17mm 1.8) in my basket at Currys checkout for only 681.97, and was tempted to buy a second...

Re: Show Your Snowdrop Pictures

That looks sooooo much better than numerous NT properties that promote their Snowdrops as a reason to visit, and if you do, discover it's a huge dissapointment.

Re: New silver E-M1 Mark II camera

I noticed Wilkinson Cameras have it advertised on pre-order for 150 more than a black body, plus no min 200 for PE (which could be worth a further 150'ish if buying the likes of an early Pen body...

Re: Olympus 150-400 Rumour

But the Canon 100-400mm + 1.4x TC (that I was looking at earlier today) can be bought (hdew) for 1,599, and if used with an aps-c Canon with a crop factor of x1.6. So it's 4.5-5.6, but witha...

Re: Olympus 150-400 Rumour

They further confuse future options.

As Pro lenses will they take the 1.4 and 2.0x teleconverters?

But will they be more fat, white, super expensive lenses similar to the 150-400?

Re: Olympus 150-400 Rumour

At least the 2x TC is going to be black.

Wonder how much a black lenscoat for the 150 -300mm will cost?

Re: Olympus 150 - 400

Whenever I use my 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC, my OMD EM1 ii gets through batteries in no time, perhaps it's the lens, the type of usage it gets, or a bit of both.


So I'm wondering whether a much larger...

Re: Lens confusion

I've heard of Cash Converters getting these muddled up (including m 4/3 image with 4/3 description), and a google a couple of minutes ago showed MPB are also doing it, but the other way round.

Re: Olympus 150 - 400

Speculation that the 150 - 400mm might be acheived by means of a 120 - 320mm zoom with an integral 1.25 teleconvertor interested me.

Could that produce the cheaper, lighter, more compact lens that...

As my 300mm + 1.4 are almost permanently on my OM1ii, that prompts to ask is it just autofocus not working when using the TC, or manual focus or both. If one still works it might help avoid panicking...
