Re: Oly 12-200 f3.5-6.3

Yes, I reckon this lens imposes a Strong and characteristic look to the resulting images, and it’s unattractive - not very detailed, and they all seem under-exposed.

I tried to link to another...

Re: Oly 17mm f1.8...'little gem'

Yes I agree, especially as the 17 isn’t weather sealed and isn’t really one of Olympus’ sharpest at the corners at full aperture.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Apparently train photography is really big in Japan, which presumably explains the initial inclusion in the AI on release. Presumably bullet trains pose a more difficult target to follow than the...

Re: New Oly registered.

It seems fashionable at the moment. Oly shouldn’t feel alone - the new Canon mirrorless offerings in particular have come in for a torrent of abuse. It just shows how many people don’t have enough of...

Re: OM-3Ti cheapest one ever!? £750

Main boards on these were always a source of failures. I bought my OM-4 in the late 1980s second hand from a dealer in London (possibly Fox Talbot - I now forget) who’d replaced the board and a...

Re: The Photography Show - free entry for some

There are only 5 reasons to go to the show and brave all those dullards with DSLRs round their necks:
1. To get a good show deal on some bit(s) of gear you would (hopefully) have had to pay more...

Re: My latest foray into FF mirrorless - and why I'm sticking with m43

You’re correct in all rationality, Nigel, but if they did in all areas of life the whole of capitalist society would collapse. Commerce has learned by a process of aggressive natural selection how to...

Re: Camera club speakers

Yes, we had Will last year; really nice guy, and he gave us a thoughtful talk on seeing images ‘in the everyday’.

Re: DIY Kruger Safari - the kit

Thanks so much for this series - all good stuff.

I’d just add that I find the f2.8 aperture of the Pro 40-150 is really useful early and late in the day.

We can’t shoot for as long as recent...

They’ve confirmed they’ll be doing ‘Check and Clean’ again, and some of the talks have been announced, including Tesni Ward and Steve Gosling.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Had a great few days last week in North Norfolk: birding, eating and drinking with my cousin (who's a recently-acquired E-M1ii owner).

We saw a lot of interest, but I particularly liked this...

Re: No panning Mode

I’d say the general consensus is that you might as well leave it on IS Auto and don’t worry. Older cameras had trouble making the decision, but the latest Olympus bodies seem very well able to judge...

Re: Rachel

I like this a lot.
Is it in a lift? I keep wondering if I’d crop the white section at the top off, but I think overall it’s better left in.
The expression is wonderful, and asks a lot of questions....

True, but there were plenty of other shots where he shot lots of alternatives before choosing the one winner - eg Magnum ‘Contact Sheets’ which I expect you’ve seen.

Re: Updated Olympus lens "roadmap"

Doesn’t look like the 12mm f1.2 fits in there; in fact (if I’m interpreting it correctly) it doesn’t seem to contain anything new at all on the prime front.

So, no update to the 17mm f1.8 (eg...

Re: Wangaratta Camera Club Photo Shoot #01/2019

A nice set.

Homo photographicus of all sexes is a great source of fun images. Normally I’d say anyone who uses their £3500 camera kit with the hood reversed over the lens is automatically marked...
