Re: Panasonic 100-400 vs 300 f4 information

Foe medium-sized lenses like this (4/3rds 50-200, 40-150 f/2.8, 300 f/4) I find a "shoulder pod" really useful. It mounts on the tripod ring and provides good support without restricting mobility....

Re: Best 25mm choice

I got a used Oly 25/1.8 from somebody on here (sorry, forgotten who) and was very pleased with it. This probably doesn't help much as they don't seem to come up very often!

Re: Honestly, do you like autofocus?

Neither, it is just another tool which works well for some jobs and less well for others.

I'm pretty sure you can the beep off (possibly by turning all beeps off, can't remember exactly how but I...

An interesting beast. There are a few of them left - I'm not sure whether the one in Newport is back in operation (the only other one ever built in the UK, as far as I am aware without checking). The...

Re: Olympus 1.4x Tele Converter EC-14

To state the obvious, it will only work with 4/3 lenses, not Micro-4/3. If it works well with a particular lens on a 4/3 body there is no reason at all why it shouldn't on M4/3. And in practice I can...

Re: Factory reset - does it reset the file numbers ?

Surely if you keep a card with some photos on and put it back in after the camera reset, the numbers will just pick up where they left off?

Re: Sony RX100

Horses for courses - I strongly preferred the faster lens on the Mk 3 and was happy with the pay-off of a smaller zoom range. It's good that we have the choice.

I haven't even tried to keep track...

Re: Sony RX100

And .... it is small. Which makes it nice and portable but might be a problem for people with big hands. Even my stubby little fingers end up pressing the wrong button sometimes.

Re: Sony RX100

I've been running a Mark III for a few years. Within its limitations it can produce quite good images and I'm quite pleased with it, but wouldn't use it for anything mission-critical.
