Re: New Top Gear - thoughts?

I might watch Series 2 now that Evans is not going to be on. I gave up on Clarkson et al some time ago and hate Evans so avoided Series 1.

Hopefully they get someone with a personality not...

Re: Samyang 7.5mm Fisheye

Yes I own a Rokinon and the difference is merely in the badging. Aperture priority works a treat allowing you to vary EV as normal, but TTL metering means the image is usually correctly exposed. Set...

Re: Panasonic Leica 100-400mm F4-6.3

I'm saving already. I'd rather pinned my hopes on the Oly 300 f4 but at a lot less money the Pana 100-400 looks very tempting, as a wildlife photographer that extra reach is too tempting.

Re: Sharpness

I too prefer my LSF JPEGs to anything I can produce from RAW. I keep being told I should use RAW but seemingly lack the skills to actually get anything I'm happy with from RAW.

Re: General walkabout lens for Travel

While not 'bigged up' by the cognoscenti, the 12-50 is a cracking lens! I use it regularly on my EP% with EVF 3.

Re: Beaten to 20MP by Panasonic!

There's a Pixel war raging across the DSLR ranges and it looks like m4/3 is not exempt. Personally I'd settle for 12Mp with Phase detection focusing that worked better than the EM1. Rather like...

Re: 4/3 to m4/3 Adapters ?

They do work, as does the Walimex Pro version which is half the Olympus price.

Having waded through this thread a couple of times, I'm more and more of the opinion that, while the joke was near the knuckle, there is no way that it should/could be censored. We see the extremists...

Re: Pinch my nipples

I'd like to register that I have no objection to the OP. It was very funny and I'd be really disappointed if it were redacted because of a couple of narrow-minded complaints. -

Re: Adder portraits

Nice technique and well done for not spooking the Adder! In my experience with British snakes you rarely see more than the rear half as they slide away, so great fieldcraft too. A stunning set!

Re: Same Bronzewing Pigeon - two lenses.

Certainly sharper than the 75-300, I find the 75-300 at between 250 and 280mm gives a much sharper image, perhaps comparable to the 4/3 lens.
