Re: Olympus E5

CEX offer refund, repair, or replacement within 30 days.

Re: 300mm F4 Tripod Mount Screw Hole question

Mine doesn't have anything in there either.
I also guess it's to add a small cap head to stop it sliding out of some particular Arca type clamp with a slot/groove in it

Re: Possible Future Sale

Tim, the tripod adaptor is only about 200g but it's detachable, so unless you're using the lens on a tripod, there's no need to bear the weight whilst taking hand held photos.
