Re: FT 35-100 f/2.0 565

Are the m4/3 lenses that good?

I have a 35-100 f2 and the quality is simply stunning. Together with the 14-35 F2, a reviewer referred to them as "a bag of primes".

Re: Steam workshop

Re: Thinking of an E-P5

I'm still vacillating over getting an E-P5!

My main reason is portability, so I don't want a thumping great lens to go with it. I've seen reviews of the 14-42 'pancake' lens that are critical of...

You can always tell a man/woman by the company he/she keeps!

Re: Steam workshop

The thing about a lathe, is that you can build a better one from it, so its lineage can be traced back to pole lathes in the woods.

I know what it's like in Birmingham - I watched 'Peaky Blinders'!

Re: Lodging around Coventry Uni, UK
