Re: Sigma 105mm Macro Lens 4/3 fit

Sounds an intriguing lens, though some say it is slow to focus. I have the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro which is superlative as a general purpose telephoto as well as for macro. Don't think I can imagine...

Pany 10-25 is now around at 1799. Not sure who it is supposed to appeal to; was outside my budget. Maybe wedding photographers for indoor use?

Re: Upgrade to weather sealed

My view - the original E-M1 (or "Mark I" as it was never called until there was a Mark II) is incredibly cheap on the used market and superb value. It was the top of the range Pro body until a...

Re: Disabling stabilisation off switch

Maybe superglue is the only answer. Seems a bit crude …

Sometimes I think the switch gets moved when getting the camera out of the bag. As does the focus clutch ring, but that's more immediately...

Disabling stabilisation off switch

Hi. Not sure whether anyone can advise.

I gave an E-M1 ii with the 12-100 usually attached. Occasionally after taking a photo which looks a bit fuzzy feeling I've found that the switch on the lens...

Re: Who is this ?

Whyever not?

(I'm not normally the sort of person to wear advertising stuff, but buying an extra strap doesn't seem like my highest priority. What are the advantages?)

Re: So who's going to enforce it?

Maybe the taxi drivers should wear a pullover. Most of their customers will be in outdoor clothing and don't really want to be overheated while in a taxi. As for buses, I expect the bus companies...

Re: Olympus E-M1

Such a shame these wonderful cameras are not valued more highly. I have no need for another.

Re: S-AF(MF) - a slight downside

Sorry if I put that confusingly.

If you're in S-AF(MF) then you can take photos with whatever focus you select; sharp or fuzzy. Even if you have Rls Priority S, you won't be prevented from taking...

Re: Do we actually need HS2?

HS2 is likely to enrich London and the south east at the expense of the rest of the country. If we abandoned the London to Birmingham branch but went ahead with Birmingham to North East and North...

S-AF(MF) - a slight downside

When I started using OMD a couple of years back, I quickly decided S-AF (MF) seemed to be better than S-AF for normal use in that it gave me the extra option to make fine tuning using the focus ring...

Re: First from the 12-100

Cromford also has this wonderful mecca for lovers of used books (and they also have a nice cafe, and the very photogenic millpond outside). Not to be missed if you like that sort of thing.

Re: Android Stock - yes/no

Re: Back Button focussing

Initially I wondered about using Fn2 for something else when one of...

Re: 6 in a thousand.

That's probably why there's little or no feral pigeon mess or nuisance around the Newton building, but far too much in the city centre.
