Re: MC 20 question...

Back in the days of film I took a similar series of shots, ranging IIRC from 21mm to 300mm, in preparation for a talk I gave at the local camera club. I also took a second series with the same lenses...

Re: Echinopsis Hybrid Razzle Dazzle (Form)

I can't seem to get the hang of the stereo pairs. I can make the bottom set into a row of six blooms but I don't think that's what is intended :confused:

What is the recommended distance between...

Re: The Yashica-Mat

I have my late father's Yashica-Mat. Unfortunately the shutter is broken; I had it repaired once but it failed again not long afterwards. It was given to my father by our elderly next-door neighbour,...

Re: Another very rare butterfly having a good year

Excellent images *yes

I wish Olympus would make a MFT equivalent of the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 FT lens, compatible with the 1.4x & 2x converters, weather sealed and compatible with pro-capture. The...

Re: Charger flashing amber. Normal?

I should have added that the light goes green when the battery is fully charged. I did have one Olympus battery that failed to charge, the orange light continued to flash even after several hours of...

Re: Charger flashing amber. Normal?

Yes, that is normal for the E-M1ii charger. The frequency of the flashes changes as the charge increases.

Re: E-M1X Terrific Red Kite Images

I'd like an EM1-X but I think I'll wait until Olympus do the customary "free grip" offer :confused:

Re: Can you save/store AF point by orientation?

If I have understood the reviews correctly, this seems to be a feature of the new E-M1X. It would be nice if this functionality could be added to the E-M1ii in a firmware update, perhaps even for the...

Re: Steady Hand of the Year

Here are a couple from Crete, the harbour area of Agios Nikolaos by night. The combination of the E-M1 Mk2 and 12-100 f/4 is ludicrously capable of sharp, hand-held images at slow shutter speeds....

Re: New Olympus Patent: 400mm f4.0 MFT Lens

I have the Pana-Leica 100-400 and it is a cracking lens but if Olympus brought out an equivalent it would be tempting for two reasons. Firstly it would be nice to have image stabilisation in the lens...

It is a very good deal but the wife would kill me if I went for it, especially as I already have one :o

Re: Voting procedures...

With the "Thanks" and "Like" buttons we could implement a 1st, 2nd & 3rd voting scheme: both "Thanks" + "Like" = 1st; just a "Thanks" = 2nd; just a "Like" = 3rd. It might give more finely nuanced...

Re: No medium telephoto primes

I agree, it really is a great lens but its great drawback on MFT is the lack of speed. It is slow to focus, although it is quicker on the E-M1 Mk 2 compared to the Mk 1, and it is glacially slow when...

Re: Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro

I think it probably would, and for a couple of reasons in that particular situation. Firstly, I was using the Sigma 150 with the EC-14 but couldn't get very close to the action (I was in a garden...

Re: Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro

I have one and use it frequently. It is very sharp and works well on the E-5 and Mk 1 & 2 E-M1s. Focus is nailed more quickly on the Mk 2 than the Mk 1 or E-5 with much less tendency to hunt or spool...

Sorry for the slow reaction, I'm in the far west of rural Pembrokeshire and the broadband is a bit flaky :(

Re: 24-48mm legacy Zuiko

I also had this lens and now regret chopping it in along with the 75-150mm f/4 when buying a second-hand OM 180mm f/2.8 :(
