Re: Partial lunar eclipse...

It'll be very low down in the southern sky in the UK. At present, I've got low cloud and houses blocking any view of it :(

Hope you have better luck!

Olympus 100 Souvenirs

I see from the latest Olympus magazine that they produced a special 'Olympus 100' version of the Billingham Hadley Pro bag this spring to mark their 100th anniversary. (And if you want one, despite...

Re: Olympus M.Zuiko 14-150mm f4-f5.6

Yes it was pretty much a fixture on my Pen F when I was away on holidays, with an occasional wish that it got down to 12mm at the wide end, and longer than 150mm at the tele end. (It's now been...

Re: Olympus M.Zuiko 14-150mm f4-f5.6

No interest shown on the forum so I've shipped it off to Ffordes for them to sell it for me on their website.

Re: Panasonic Leica 200mm

To resurrect an old thread...

I was out at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod again yesterday, and as I've found in previous years my 75mm f1.8 was very useful for covering the middle of the...

Re: Best 25mm choice

Ffordes are selling a s/h PanaLeica 25mm f1.4 for 260, with very little sign of usage.

I bought mine secondhand a few years ago and have had no problems with it although some users criticise its...

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

Having just downloaded 1100-odd images from my trip to the Farne Islands, I've realised the update reset all my image file numbers to start from 000001 again! Grrrr! :(

Re: Grip

I've picked up an 'as-new' Olympus grip from WEX, for 80 and can confirm that has a much feel to it than my Meike one. The textured area of the grip feels much more secure, and the edge on the side...

Olympus M.Zuiko 14-150mm f4-f5.6

It's time for me to sell off some lenses that I'm not using anymore as I've bought others that overlap their range.

And the second is my Olympus 14-150mm f4-f5.6 lens. This is a very useful wide...

Re: Grip

I have the Meike version of Olympus' ECG-4 handgrip, which I leave on my Pen-F at all times as I find it gives me a much better grip on the camera when using a wrist strap. However, my one complaint...

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Bearing in mind the loss of 2 stops, and hence the need for slower shutter speeds and/or higher ISO settings, is there any real benefit over cropping images using the unextended lens I wonder??

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

I was over at the Farne Islands yesterday with my 40-150mm f2.8 plus MC-14 teleconverter on my v3 E-M1 II. I was using CA + Tracking all the time and it seemed much better at keeping the focus on...

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

One oddity with the update... at least I hadn't noticed it before... I use the rear screen to show the super control panel, and today I realised that it was saying Y/M/D at the top left. Sure enough...

Re: Considering upgrading to the Mark II and have a few questions.

The recent firmware update for the E-M1 II is another advantage it holds over the older E-M1!

Re: 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO vs 14-150MM F4.0-5.6 II

I have both (well my 14-150 is the Mk I but it's pretty close to the Mk II I think).

The 12-100 is certainly bigger and heavier, but I'd say it is a much higher quality, and the dual IS is also...

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

Did it remember all your custom settings and reapply them after the update? As this is a major update, I presume the camera will lose them unless they are recorded in the update software and...
