Re: New MC 20 announced.

Oly Store wont be putting on website for pre-order, only when actually in stock, which should be 1st July, but I'll probably keep on checking for the next 12 days just in case. EDIT: They have now...

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Yes, if they get too many orders for what's now quite an old code they may withdraw it. Only the MC14 listed at the moment, but I'll be regularly refreshing the page including teleconverters.

Re: Noise issues

So does this mean there's different custom settings for reviewing images? Which sounds potentially useful if there's (also?) a higher res option, to avoid dissapointment on subsequent reviewing using...

Re: HLD9 for EM1ii

As I find the EM1 mk2 already chunky enough to use with either a 40-150 f2.8 or 300 f4, that's about the only use I have for my 'free' battery grip, especially when staying at campsites with no...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Re: Did I make the right choice?

Best price for new body I've seen was 1,174 after cashback at SRS & Cameraworld last Black Friday.

But if the code JASPER15 is still working at the Oly Store,...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Artic Terns were in abundance to 'meet and greet' visitors to The Farne Islands when we visited 2 weeks ago, taking offence and pecking at heads both on arrival and departure.

Re: Did I make the right choice?

If you didn't already have the 12-40, this might be the best deal around at the moment, camera + lens+ extra 2 years extended warranty for 999? Something I looked at before buying from the Oly store...

Don't know if there's a better board for this, so will post here. Please move if there's a better location.
