Re: Olympus Stylus 1 / 1s

Good Morning Bill,

Thanks for the head up, much appreciated.

I'm a bit hesitant to order from a non photographic specialist source - do they check equipment for cosmetic and functional issues ?...

Olympus Stylus 1 / 1s

Using OM legacy lenses

A friend has some OM lenses and is considering buying a 4/3 body and adaptor.

Am I correct in saying that the autofocus won't work on (for example) an E420 etc. ?

Are there any other issues to...

Re: 18-180 lens

Thanks Ian / Iain,

I've located this lens new and used (good condition) a bit cheaper.

I should also have asked for opinions on this lens.

It gets average reports in online reviews.
