Re: Oly LH-48B hood for 17mm f1.8

I bought the JJC clone for about a tenner. Same fitment. Would rather a more secure fitting but not complaining at the price I paid. The 17mm f1.8 is a lovely lens and reminds me in many ways of the...

Re: The Photography Show - free entry for some

Are they still cleaning cameras then?
I wonder if they'd look at my non-function plastic fantastic if cleaning the contacts with proper stuff doesn't work?????

Lovely shots. Took me back to our visit last July. Didn't see any tortoises though, apart from in captivity. Did see leopards and cheetahs though - amazing!

Re: Old 300mm Lens

I had one of these when I had my E3 but sold it. Have fancied another for my EM1.2, but I might be disappointed with the results. I am sure that my 75-300 is likely to be better at the long end.

Re: DIY Kruger safari - admin

My wife and I and two friends let someone else organise it (Titan Holidays) when we did four areas last July (Entabeni, Limpopo, Karongwe, and Kruger).
Probably more expensive, but less hassle. It...

Re: Pen-F and just one lens.

The Pen F is often bundled with the 17mm f1.8 prime. There is a reason for this.......(think street). That's how I got mine.

Re: My latest foray into FF mirrorless - and why I'm sticking with m43

I have zilch interest in going FF. I make the most out of what I have. How do you find the 12-100 compared to the 12-40? I just have the latter but the former is nagging away at me.....

Re: Olympus 1.4 mc 14

Whenever an item of camera gear I have dies, I always keep as many of the tiny screws as I can recover. Goodness knows why but I have been doing this for years and have loads of them.

Re: Adobe LR - no more updates - options?

I really like Affinity Photo but it is no LR. I did hear a while back that at some stage it would be upgraded to have LR-type attributes........but no sign yet. I would pay extra for this.

Re: Oly 12-200 f3.5-6.3

I know what you mean, we have been spoilt. I think that the 12-100 would be a better bet and around the same price to. Maybe going from 12 to 200mm is pushing it a bit.

Re: Oly 12-200 f3.5-6.3

I hope that it is available at The Photography Show in March, at least to look at and play with, if not to buy.
This looks like a unique lens. Well done Oly!

Re: Always liked the look of the Pen-F but.....

I love my Pen F too. Didn't buy it for the CAF performance, bought it for the 20MP sensor, which my EM1.1 didn't have. It is also extremely cool :D:D But I have the 1.2 now so 20MP sensors :D:D:D

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I hope that it is a lot better than the EC20. And retaining the IQ of the 40-150 and 300 Pros as well as the MC14 does.
