Re: Macro lens recommendations

The FT Sigma 150/2.8 macro is also an excellent lens if you want a long working distance. It's now the only FT lens I have since switching to MFT.

Re: which camrea?

The E3 is certainly weather proofed but I don't think the E30 is. That may affect your decision.

Re: 150mm f/2 at LCE

In my E5 days I had one of those and the 35-100. They are stunning lenses but heavy compared to MFT. Apart from composition I seldom got a duff shot even in difficult lighting conditions.

I now...

Re: Olympus Survey

I was attracted by the notion of 10% off so went ahead and did the survey. As others have pointed out it's not too user friendly but worth the effort as you can add the Oly 10% to a retailer's 10%...

Re: Gimbal Head for Wildlife Photography

I'm another supporter of hand held with the 300/4 and the 100-400. Ideally I use the car door or the shelf in a hide for added steadiness. You lose a lot of the advantage of Oly kit if you have to...

Re: Long Dilemma - please help

Versatility mainly. I can't detect any difference in IQ. If it's purely birds then the 300/4+1.4 gives the best reach and you need it to fill the frame. For animals, on safari for example, the...

Re: Long Dilemma - please help

I have the Panny 100-400 and for most purposes find it is better than the Oly 300+1.4. Mine are used mainly for wildlife, which they do very well.

Re: Acid Attacks

As I said it's not foolproof but one needs to try something. Doing nothing does not seem a viable option.

One option would be to make the carriage/possession of noxious substances a crime unless the possessor could show a good reason. This does reverse the normal 'innocent until proven guilty' rule but...

Re: HDEW Cameras

I bought a 300/4 from them. When it developed a problem it was quickly fixed under their guarantee. I would use them again.

Re: Battery charging 'in the field'

I use an ExPro which plugs into the 12v system in the car but I suspect newer models will run off USB which is the same voltage.

Re: The Ransom scam that has hit many countries

The worrying thing is that the code seems to have been stolen from NSA although apparently someone is in custody for that. Theft seems all too easy and the consequences have been dire.
