Re: Grey Imports

Bit of an impulse decision (funds will available next week); wanted one for ages and the old 300mm f/2.8 was always way out of my budget. Looks like the Lensmaster Gimbal (from another post here)...

Re: Gimbal Head for Wildlife Photography

I currently have the 50-200mm + EC14 & EC20 and the 40-150 + MC-14 but if I get a Gimbal it will be for a 300mm f/4, if I can afford it.

Edit: E-5 and EM-1 mk1

Re: Oh dear, my MC14

That's interesting Jim, I've never heard about this (maybe I need to get out more ;) ). I found my 50-200mm SWD was sticking a bit when zooming recently. Do you recommed any particular brand? You...
