Re: Photo Show Camera Cleaning Warning

I was asked that too yesterday. As I haven't updated to the latest FW I went for it. Didn't have many settings saved so not really bothered about that. Haven't checked that they actually did the...

Re: 'MY' perfect strap.

The Peak Design anchors look thin and flimsy too but are really strong. I have used PD straps for number of years.

Re: Someone got a good deal!

The mk2 is a stunning camera. I am sure that the EM1X is too, but the built in grip is a big turn off for me.

Re: Someone got a good deal!

If I am not mistaken, the seller was Joe Knapman, a very good wildlife photographer. Look on the Olympus Users Facebook Wildlife Photography site to see his stuff. He seems to spend a lot of time in...

Re: 300mm f4

That was a bargain I reckon. I'd love tgat lens but I couldn't justify the expense for occasional use. I would hire it.

Re: Pen-F ECG-4 grip....any merits?

I have clone version too. Makes bigger lenses easier to use, which was the case when I bought the Pen F as it had the bigger sensor over my EM1.1. Now that I have the EM1.2, I rarely use bigger...

Re: Panny 12-32mm, bargain at Bristol Cameras.

I have been thinking about this lens but I think that keeping my 12-50 Oly might be a better bet as it is more versatile, is well made, and has a greater range. I can just about live with its size....

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.

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.
