Re: FW Update 12-50mm lens to Version 1.4

Don't think so. I have it and it's a versatile lens. However, I also have the 12-40 which is much nicer. Occasionally I consider selling the 12-50 but then decide it's a better size on my Pen F.

Affinity Photo Special Offer

Affinity Photo has 20% off its normal 50 price until the end of the year. I have been waiting for a price drop and downloaded it last night. Bye bye CS6!

Re: Olympus lens cap Rear

I have bought a number of ones from EBay (which look near enough identical to the Oly ones) and have glued them back to back with Araldite to make the storage of my small primes easier.

Re: Olympus or Panasonic ... That is the question.

As for VFM, the 75-300 is superb. But it does need good light due to its slow speed at the long end (actually it is best to avoid the full 300mm if you can). Depending on what you are shooting, I...

Re: Thumbs up for the 75-300

I tend not to use mine much but it is much more manageable than the 40-150Pro plus MC14. I am still in two minds about its performance but I need to use it a bit more in good light. Thinking about...

Re: Any Affinity Photo Users?

No but I am seriously thinking about getting it at that price. I see that there is an iPad version now. I hope there will be an Android version too for my Samsung tablet.

Re: OM-D E-M1 Advice Requested

I would echo Bruce's comments on the third party adapters. I had one and it distorted the images I got with my 7-14 and at the wide end of my 11-22. However, this might not be a concern for you with...

Re: How does one judge an Art/Photography Exhibition?

Re: Olympus 7 14 f4

Is there a way to overcome this with this lens? If I need to control exposure (say sky and landscape), I would take two bracketed images and merge them in PP.

Re: 11-22mm f2.8 - 3.5for 4/3rds

I only used it with an E500 and E3, never with m43rds. Was my favourite lens when I had it. Great IQ too. Sometimes wish I still had it but with the MMF3 it becomes rather large.
