Re: High Res shot and studio flash - not working on EM1 Mk2

The issue with the central pin was resolved in the next firmware date, about three months later.

Re: Oshiro 60mm 2:1 Macro lens at 2:1 on m4/3

Andrew and Harold, I think it's fair to say your images have removed any doubts or concerns I may have had with regards to this lens.

Very nice images from you both.

Re: Motorcycle in Wales

Good spot.

My brother has lived in Germany since the mid eighties.
As it happens, he's moving back to the UK this summer, but the bike will be sold before leaving Germany.
