Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I have to say that, notwithstanding the price, with the snippets we have seen so far it is bringing back fond memories of the E3 which always felt very good in my hand.

Still think Olympus should...

Re: Anyone print A3 ?

I would suggest that you do not need to develop such a phobia. I have, what is now becoming, a fairly elderly Epson R3000 which, according to urban legend, clogs up frequently.

Re: MORE Th>N ( you think ) Pet Insurance

This practice is not confined to pet insurance.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I've been rather out of touch since early Nov, as some may have noticed when I suddenly disappeared, due to my wife's spinal surgery and recovery. Those nurses uniforms do look good on me however...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I am fully aware of the meaning of the word democracy.

It does not include a vote based on lies, deceit, misrepresentation of fact and illegal election practices. I qualify that this probably...

I am sorry you chose to go down the route of using the tired old rhetoric. As I have said the request was genuine.

Goodnight and I hope you have a good weekend.

Certainly not the Mail, Sun, Express, Telegraph or Sun. The Times have not been entirely factual either but at it's heart it is considerably better.

The FT is interestingly factual and to the...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Absolutely correct. It's denialism and for me the same mindset as creationism and flat earthers. No matter how much information and fact, backed by evidence, nothing will cause a rethink.

Re: Postive view of Olympus

Interestingly I'm not surprised. I know several serious, long term photographers who have switched to Oly and all to EM1. The common factor is that they love the smaller size factor and have seen in...

Re: Tony Northrup believes micro-four-thirds is dead

An interesting thought which I simply had not considered.

One flaw in it is that some people, myself included, decided that I would not get the grip for the Mk2 and just had an extra battery. I...

Re: Tony Northrup believes micro-four-thirds is dead

At some point m43 will die. As will APSC. Something else will come along as that is the way of technology. Personally I do not think it will be for some time due to the same technology advancing...
