Re: Oly sold out of.......

If you've bought a non-Olympus half case, you might find it more convenient than the genuine Oly one, as their own model doesn't have access to the battery/SD card compartment, whilst many third...

Re: Photography Show - fast path tickets?

Will the Oly code OLYMTPS19 also take 25% off the extra 3 fast track charge, or just off the ticket price?

Re: 40-150mm f2.8 Pro lens foot..

Ditto, lens bought June 2018.

I noticed a few days ago that the difference between a 40-150mm f2.8 and same lens with a 1.4x TC was only 50, when the MC-14 costs 249 by itself.

Re: Old 300mm Lens

I saw that lens in the window of Aylesbury Oxfam several weeks ago (and have also resisted on a few subsequent occasions).

Re: Sad, if true

They were previously listed as discontinued on Japanese sites in 2017.

In June last year I had one (with 17mm 1.8) in my basket at Currys checkout for only 681.97, and was tempted to buy a second...

Re: Show Your Snowdrop Pictures

That looks sooooo much better than numerous NT properties that promote their Snowdrops as a reason to visit, and if you do, discover it's a huge dissapointment.

Re: Olympus 150-400 Rumour

But the Canon 100-400mm + 1.4x TC (that I was looking at earlier today) can be bought (hdew) for 1,599, and if used with an aps-c Canon with a crop factor of x1.6. So it's 4.5-5.6, but witha...

Re: Olympus 150-400 Rumour

They further confuse future options.

As Pro lenses will they take the 1.4 and 2.0x teleconverters?

But will they be more fat, white, super expensive lenses similar to the 150-400?

At least the 2x TC is going to be black.

Wonder how much a black lenscoat for the 150 -300mm will cost?
