Re: Panasonic Leica 200mm

There's always the MMF-3.

(And if adapter + Little Tuna is prohibitively expensive, the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro is a fine general purpose telephoto lens, though perhaps AF is too slow for some...

Re: LCE em1x

this is going over old ground again, but from the discussions I've read here and elsewhere, I think the E-M1X is not aimed at existing M43 users. It is aimed at 35mm SLR users who shoot sports,...

Re: OMD + 12-100 an overpriced bridge camera?

Great points.

As far as I'm aware the biggest sensor on a bridge camera is 1 inch / 20MPixel, and 4/3rds is over 75% larger (though still 20 MPixel). I'm guessing this is also significant.

Re: OMD + 12-100 an overpriced bridge camera?

My response was "more highly priced and also more highly specified than a bridge camera".

But it's an interesting point, given that some people say how rarely they switch to another lens.

OMD + 12-100 an overpriced bridge camera?

I read elsewhere, contentiously:

"An OMD with the 12-100 lens is effectively an over-priced bridge camera".


As they say in exam papers, "discuss". :-)

Re: Best 25mm choice

Bit too late, but also worth considering if you can be a bit flexible on focal length is Sigma 30mm f/1.4

Re: EM 1 Mk 1 Body

Two and a half years ago these were Olympus's top Pro camera, and retailed for 800, and they haven't got any worse. Such a shame they command such low prices now. Great bargain for someone who...

Re: DXO PhotoLab & NIK offer

Bizarre …

Have you tried googling on the exact error message? Sorry I can't make any better suggestion.

Re: Two cameras in one! so can't update

Just a guess but have you got some other USB-attached device which the system might be mistaking for a camera? Or perhaps an SD card plugged in?

Re: Olympus 1.4x Tele Converter EC-14

Re: 40-150 Pro vs. 50-200 SWD

And - for some of us at least - price. The used price of 50-200 (SWD or non-SWD) makes it an absolute bargain.

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

I hear there's a feature to make the focus ring on the lens automatically switch to MF mode, so in effect all lenses have a clutch. This seems eminently sensible to me; the expected behaviour for...

Re: Sigma 105mm Macro Lens 4/3 fit

Sounds an intriguing lens, though some say it is slow to focus. I have the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro which is superlative as a general purpose telephoto as well as for macro. Don't think I can imagine...
