Re: Olympus lens + MMF1 + EC-14

I'm using a generic MMF adapter and usually with the EC-14. I don't know about the EM-5 Mk2 but don't think the focus on the Mk2 is any different to the original.

Re: Olympus lens + MMF1 + EC-14

On the EM-5 mk1 the autofocus can be very slow (especially in low light) and not totally accurate. But single autofocus with manual can be very sharp, I've been very pleased with about 20-50% of my...

Re: Waxwings

I had about 40 in my garden last year and they managed to eat all the berries off a Rowan tree in 15 minutes. Unfortunately the only lens I had at the time was my 12-50, so didn't get any good...

Re: For Sale: 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 non-SWD, boxed

Thanks for the advice Rob. I was getting lens sizes mixed up, I was considering the M43 75-300, but think optically the 50-200 will be better and with the option of tele converters this will be...

Re: For Sale: 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 non-SWD, boxed

I'm interested in it, but using it on an EM-5 I imagine it will be mainly manual focus? I was thinking about a 70-300mm but think this could be more versatile.

Thanks.
