Re: Zuiko 50-200 recommendation

I think you are right, Chris, although others who have used them with those bodies will be able to give better feedback. Depending on your subject and shooting style it might not be a problem in...

Re: Battery Terminal Caps/Covers

I can never remember which battery is which, but if the BLN-1 is the one for the original E-M5 and E-M1, our forum friend Beagletorque designed and 3-D printed some holders for them which work very...

Re: Olympus 5 Mark II + Oly 40-150 f/2.8

Thanks for the extra photos Antonio, interesting to see the stone in context.

They were't messing about when they dug that quarry, were they!

Re: turning off screen

I'm not sure about the details with the E-M10, but somewhere in the EVF section of the menus you ought to be able to find a setting for something like "Eye detect" whihc probably defaults to "On" -...

Re: Olympus 5 Mark II + Oly 40-150 f/2.8

Fascinating colours and textures in the stone - the top half looks like blue cheese! Is that one of the marble quarries up Estremoz way, Antonio?

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

Thinking about this a little more seriously (while trying to suppress the gear envy, of course :) ), I wonder if it would? The two big monsters in the old 4/3 line-up were the 300/2.8 fixed and the...

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

That would be lovely - but it would also be huge and expensive. Front glass would have to be 100mm wide, so only marginally smaller than a 300mm f/2.8. The 4/3 300/2.8 and 90-250/2.8 are roughly this...

Re: Camera JPEGs a bit iffy?

An interesting thought - you say you are using a Panasonic/Leica lens so that might be the case. I'm not sure, but I would imagine that with an Olympus lens the camera might well apply corrections to...
