Re: M5 Mkii + MMF-3 + SWD = FUN

Are you saying the 40-150 Pro is even better than the 50-200 SWD?

Re: Oly 12-200 f3.5-6.3

From a marketing / selling point of view, I'm guessing this is to help Olympus CSC with 12-200 look like an attractive alternative to folk considering bridge cameras with huge zoom factors.

sensor protection

After nearly making a mistake while changing lens, I just had this thought. (I once studied usability and Human-Computer Interaction)

Why don't they design mirrorless cameras so that when you...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

From some reading and also talking with a couple of Oly users at camera club, I get the impression that the E-M1X is of little or no interest to most established M43 users. But I also get the...

Re: M5,Grip.14-42,40-150,15mm

I'm not looking for these items, but it may be worth you clarifying:

E-M5 - original or Mark II
40-150 - presume this is f/4.0-5.6, not f/2.8
What is a Speed changer? Typo for charger or...

Re: Olympus Workspace - Replacement for OV3

I use OV3 purely for the way the import facility creates folders with the date, or if such folders exist, adds photos to them. Gave up using any of the other features because (1) they were slow, and...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

On my old E-M1 ("mark I") I've noticed that the in-camera HDR seems to get good results even when I feel sure there was camera movement between the multiple shots. Perhaps there's a sophisticated...

Re: Non-political: We're doomed, Captain Mainwaring

Tesni Ward's review seems to confirm this. It's an additional model for sports and wildlife, not a replacement for E-M1 ii.

Re: Non-political: We're doomed, Captain Mainwaring

Perhaps they are consciously aiming this at the transfer (from DSLR) market rather than the upgrade market. To broaden the appeal of M43 to include more wildlife and sports shooters. In which case...

I was hoping it might be really popular and create a buyers' market for used E-M1 ii s. :-)

They need to provide a manual, else it will be as worthless as OV3 is to me.

Re: M.ZUIKO 75-300 mm 1:4.8-6.7 II Lens...alternative.

Not weather sealed though, which seems an odd choice for a lens quite suitable for wildlife.

Re: M.ZUIKO 75-300 mm 1:4.8-6.7 II Lens...alternative.

Same thought I was having - the old 50-200 f/2.8-3.5, with EC14 if you want the long end. It's a stunning lens, though a bit heavy. The non-SWD version is often cheaper used, just as good as far as I...

Re: Lens recommendation

Yes I agree. The Sigma 150 is great for macro and also a superb general purpose telephoto (so long as you don't min autofocus being a bit slow). The image quality on mine is breathtaking, and f/2.8...

Re: Lens recommendation

The Oly 60mm macro f/2.8 is a great lens (for macro and as a general purpose prime for for portraits), and used copies can be picked up for around 200-250. LCE have one for 260 with their...
