Re: L-Bracket for the OM-D E-M1 MKII

Regrettably no in this context. I have seen those and even sent a question to the supplier asking about a MKII version. The answer was in the negative.

Re: L-Bracket for the OM-D E-M1 MKII

I have been looking for one as well because I want to do panoramas on portrait mode more accurately.

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

Very much agree with you Keith. These divisions will be long lasting I fear and this is a desperately sad byproduct of this vote which, as you suggest, has done real harm to this country.

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

Totally agree Paul.

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

Sorry, I wasn't trying to dispute the facts on this. Apologies if that is how it came across.

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?

Incompetent - totally agree - this is evidential based on what we see almost daily.

Bigotry - sadly I have to agree. I am ashamed of the way we now present ourselves to the world as narrow...

Agreed, the NHS is not the only way to run a health care system. However if someone has a better alternative a process of debate HAS to be gone through. That should include the following steps:-

Re: Demon deal, or deal with a demon?
