Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

It's tricky, I can understand that the cost, especially with travel on top, makes or breaks the deal for some people. Some direct Olympus support would be helpful.

If the cost was less, say 50,...

At that point, Ian was unaware I was going to be in the US during that period. I'm sorry you won't be around later.

Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

The price reflects that you will get lunch, 1 hour of dedicated tutorial about setting up and technique (and, specifically tailored to the EM1). This is followed by about 4+ hours with the birds,...

Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

I've just (like 2 hours ago) got back from the US. I'm doing a photo day with Mike on Sunday, so I'll be in touch with some date options then.

Aside... I must apologise for being incommunicado for quite a number of months. I'm not dead, just resting (but neither blue nor Norwegian).

Re: Fens Falconry BIF meeting?

I'm not totally sure on the price right now. What I can say is it'll be after 8th September (I'm in the US visiting the wife's folks).

I'm up for a split group too, doing 2 days if there's enough...

I appreciate that there are some pretty awful people out there, but Fens Falconry are run to a high ethical standard. I've known Mike (the owner) for many years. He's a young guy and is keen...

Re: OM 80mm f4 Macro + 2x 65-116 Auto-tube + 2x bellows

Both have them.

Inbox cleared but sadly the lens is now sold... Having an emotionally charged visit to post it today. I used it for the last time yesterday at Rutland Water.

Re: Cunning 45mm f1.8 to 75mm f1.8 conversion

There is a C-210 Teleconverter that is a 1.9x that may also be worth trying too.

Re: Cunning 45mm f1.8 to 75mm f1.8 conversion

The timing difference I think is down to a few things, the light loss through the TC and the fact the front element is smaller than what would ideally be needed for a 76mm f1.8. Despite this, there...

Re: Cunning 45mm f1.8 to 75mm f1.8 conversion

Great, please post any results! I sold my 75/1.8 to get the 40-150/2.8. The 45/C-180 combo really is surprisingly good. Other screw in TCs are generally awful, but this one (despite plaggy build...

Cunning 45mm f1.8 to 75mm f1.8 conversion

"What?" I hear you say... If you can get hold of the exceedingly cheap C-180 1.7X Olympus teleconverter, and a 37->52mm (in either one or several steps), you get this (apologies for iphone image):

Re: ZD 300/2.8 (Yes, really)

Works well on the E-M1, the focussing speed is not up to 40-150Pro standards, but it isn't bad. I've used it for birds in flight without problem.

ZD 300/2.8 (Yes, really)

I've finally decided that my body can't cope any longer with the weightlifting. Arthritis has left its toll and I'm going to sell the 300/2.8 and hopefully get the mZuiko 300/4 when it finally...
