Olympus CBG Rucksack: as new, in black

Found this at the back of the bag collection while creating some space: it's unused, still tagged, and apart from a little dust is as new. It has quite broad shoulder straps, and despite having a...

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Yes - just the look of the 150-400 at the Photography Show made my wrists ache.

A 2000mm-equivalent reach will be amazing (pending reviews and the ability to handhold it, of course) but actually...

Re: Amazon price £1040

It's the season for offers at the moment - lots of manufacturers have a confusing mix of price reductions, discounts, cashbacks, trade-in offers etc.

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

Apparently thereís an undocumented feature in v3 that allows orf transfer via OI.Share. Iím not going to have chance to test that for a couple of days, but might be worth checking.

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

I suppose it would be best if this was checked blind (so to speak), and also checked that it hasn't occurred at the expense of detail, micro contrast etc.

I'm certainly not volunteering, although...

Re: Is it only the British ?

The individual details might be different, but this is a universal human trait. It's very close to the one for devious organisations perverting impressive and sciency-sounding words.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

In decent light I'm sure it'll be excellent on all 3 lenses (300, 40-150, 150-400), and the only usability question will be how much the AF capabilities do get compromised at the beginning and end of...

Re: The 'M'

There's no doubt that the more different settings you use, the greater the chances that you'll have left the camera in the wrong one when you reach for it next, and so you'll waste time while you...

Re: New MC 20 announced.

That's quite good - current Wex prices for the 2x Sony full-frame version is £499, with the 1.4 at £549 (!!!, although neither currently available).

Re: Updated Olympus lens "roadmap"

True, although several people have said the optical performance of the 17/1.8 has improved in those produced in recent years.
