Re: EM1 Mk1 Body only

Such a shame that such a good camera - top of the range Oly until 18 months ago - should not command a greater used value. I don't have a use for another body, but I'd hope someone would.

Re: Wanted 60mm macro

H have both. 60mm is considerably more compact than FT 50mm (+MMF-3) and focuses much more quickly and reliable (and quietly). Both have such excellent IQ I'd hesitate to compare them. 50mm is a...

Re: Amateur Photography Article About Street Photography

I like the idea of getting close, but a wide angle lens cam have unflattering perspective distortions.

The PL 12mm 1.4 seems to be listed as both a "standard" and a "wide angle" lens ...

Re: Focusing, for over 50 years I've been getting it wrong.

I don't have E-M1 II but I have a couple of thoughts occur to me which might be relevant to someone if not to you.

Focus/Recompose was standard practice on film cameras so it can't be that bad. ...

Re: OM-D E-M1+HLD-7, black

Maybe lots of folk, like me, who were possibly in the market for a used E-M1 "Classic", got one when the used prices first plummeted following the launch of the Mark II. Your offer looked good value,...

Re: street / candid photography etiquette - from the other side

Re: Replacement for my FT 12-60 SWD

Anyone know: if you have it repaired, is the new cable more durable than original, or could it be a recurrent problem?

Aperture mechanism you mean. Yes, that's what's making me cautious about getting another used one. It might develop the same fault. But people who sell on here tend to have looked after their...
