Re: Autumn colours - North

Phil,
Apologies - I should have re-read the earlier posts more carefully.
I agree with the view that Chatsworth would be easy to locate for anyone unfamiliar with the Peak District.

Re: Autumn colours - North

Jim's idea of Chatsworth is good. There's lots of variety (deciduous woodland, waterfalls, lakes, Hunting Lodge etc.) in the estate above the House.

Re: Tides up

Mark,
:) Entirely accidental - this was good luck rather than good judgement. I was 'focused' on the wave to get the shutter release at the right moment.

Panasonic UK send all lenses for repair (or an assessment of repairability) to DK-AVS.

Re: viewfinder query

Sounds like there are small flecks of dust/paint/similar which have become dislodged internally and landed on the inside face of the dioptre adjustment lens?

Re: Is Olympus developing a new 150-400mm PRO Zoom?

If you want 300mm at F4 or 420mm at F5.6 there is already a Pro quality Olympus product - so I'm not sure why they would want to kill off this product's sales with a 150-400 zoom.

However I could...

Re: Sleep reset frustration

Chris,
I think that the only way you can prevent this is by assigning your (Landscape) Myset to one of your least used positions on the Mode dial (instead of a button).

Re: AF not as accurate

Mike,
I think at the FL you used (224mm) the field of view is such that where the plane of focus intersects the waterline would fall below the bottom edge of the image frame - hence no water in...

Not sure if these account for the 'mis-focus' (which may not be a C-AF related problem) but -

No problems with mine, which I’ve had since they first shipped in 2014.
It looks like a solidly made piece of kit.
