Re: Olympus 150 - 400

Canon have had a 200-400 f4 with a built in 1.4 converter for years, you just flick a switch and it swings into position all internally. Very good but very very expensive.

Re: Police stop & ID in U.K. shopping centres?

Re: E-M1 MkII, should the I.S. make a noise.

Should be easy enough to check, take some shots at really slow shutter speeds with and without IS turned on. Hopefully the diffrence in the number of sharp shots will confirm whether or not IS is...

LOL, women are wonderful but mysterious in their ways! At least you can put the money that you saved towards a nice new lens! :D

Re: Underwhelming CAF - 9 and 5 point modes

Did not realize that, plain stupid design then. The whole reason for selecting the 5 or 9 box is when single point is too hard to keep on a fast moving erratic target whilst all 121 could find the...

Re: Whew that was close!

Re: Whew that was close!

I very carefully made sure there were no dangling straps, indeed the camera was put into the middle of the table. Pesky pooch reached right into the middle of the table and grabbed the camera by the...

Whew that was close!

Several months ago SWMBO decided she wanted a dog ending in a "short detour" of 30 miles or so without telling me why resulting in the acquisition of a retriever pup.
Now 10 months old he is sweet...

Re: Time to say goodbye ?

Interesting that you feel that the Nikon "juussst" got more keepers. Stack that up against the fact that you have already left the Nikon camp once due to the size/weight issue speaks volumes to me,...

Re: Time to say goodbye ?

It might be an idea for you and your son to swap cameras for one of the meetings to see if it is the camera or the fact that your son, being young, will be steadier and have better reflexes than you....

Re: M10 Mark III review

The Mk III is one big yawn as far as I am concerned, a rather weak excuse to put the price up.
The next one due an update is the E-M5 so I await that one with some trepidation now.

Re: Long Dilemma - please help

I would be interested to know in what way you feel it is better. Do you mean versatility being a zoom or something else? Not that I have the funds to buy one at the moment!

Re: Long Dilemma - please help

Surely the 40-150 f2.8 "whizzy one" plus the 1.4 converter would give 420 mm equivalent? Still a long way short of 800. I have the Canon 100-400 mk II and it is a superb lens but much heavier than...
