Re: Oly 40-150mm Pro

I think it's a great lens - very sharp and the TC makes no difference in IQ or focus speed to me..I find it pretty well weighted on the e-m1

Re: Brighton with a cheap 10 stop

Not too bad - a slight cast but not noticeable

The filter developed "worming" after 5 weeks so they sent a replacement...which has the same issue so now I have a refund and am on the hunt again./

Re: Samyang 7.5mm Fisheye

Everything works normally, except there is no AF. Literally attach it, set focus to just shy of infinity and shoot away. I fully understand your concern as I was the same but I love mine

I'm sure...

Re: Olympus 60mm Macro lens: worth it?

The lens does capture some incredible detail BUT it's not so quick to focus. My previous macro experience was with a Nikon 70-300 and raynox dcr-250 and I found the results much better.

Re: Hello from the other side of the pond

welcome Jerry. I came from a d7000 in December to an em-10 and now an em-1

What I used to lug around in a massive rucksack ( and still had to leave some at home ) now fits in a slingbag

Re: Em5mk2 or em10

The em10 is a great place to start I think -- I loved mine and only upgraded because I got an offer I couldn't refuse

There's an em10 in the classifieds if you want to help your friend out

Thanks Brian - it's not so convenient for you although I have in mind that there is an annual race meet in Dorset somewhere ?

Festival of Power - Santa Pod

Bit of a nervous one for me - it was the real test as to how good the e-m1 is compared with my old d7000. Apologies for the PP in some - I seem to have applied a heavy vignette by accident
