Re: Hello from Leamington Spa

Re: Camera club speakers

Big name speakers are likely to be expensive. And of course being a good photographer may not mean you are also a good presenter. Our club has occasionally had an evening playing a DVD of a big name...

Re: Manfrotto 410 head

Looks brilliant value. If I didn't already have a geared head (I have the Manrotto XPRO) I'd snap this up. (Free bump for you)

Re: Non-political: We're doomed, Captain Mainwaring

Tesni Ward's review seems to confirm this. It's an additional model for sports and wildlife, not a replacement for E-M1 ii.

Re: Lens recommendation

Yes I agree. The Sigma 150 is great for macro and also a superb general purpose telephoto (so long as you don't min autofocus being a bit slow). The image quality on mine is breathtaking, and f/2.8...

Re: The mighty 12-100

12-100 561g / D 78mm / L 117mm
12-60SWD 575g / D 79mm / L 99mm
