Re: EM1MK11 low price

All the retailers at The Photography Show are selling at 1249. It does seem to have come down surprisingly quickly - especially given how good it is!

Re: Olympus 300mm F4 Pro Lens

Occasionally. I accept your points - one of the attractions of the kit - but there are the odd times when one wants less weight and more stability.

Re: Olympus 300mm F4 Pro Lens

Slightly different tack. When I converted to M43, I bought a Giottos tripod that weighs less than a kilo inc head and which has served me well. To me, that was maximising the benefit of moving to a...

Re: AF not as accurate

Like others here, I'm suffering from focusing issues, even on stationary birds, where even with the smallest focus box, I find it tends to focus on a branch, not the bird that is pretty much filling...

Re: Bird photography problems

I don't think you can use the converter with the 'old kit lens'. So surely has to be the f2.8?

Re: Help please- live time mode

Are you using electronic shutter? If so, switch to 'normal' shutter.

Re: Firmware for 100-400 lens fixes focus limiter issue

It does seem unlikely thatall of the Oly lenses are ok, but none of the Pannys.

Re: Good eating in London

Derek means the Portrait Gallery Restaurant at the National Portrait Gallery - and ,yes, it's a solid recommendation. Both views and food are good.

Re: Forecast looks good for Marwell tomorrow

I'd understood we were each going to be given a 300mm f4 to take home, as a gift. Is that not the case?

Re: New Firmware 1.1 Released

I've just installed and it's worked. Make sure you have the latest version of the Oly updater on your computer as it will save and reload all your settings. Which is useful.

Re: New Firmware 1.1 Released

It seems very strange that they've only improved the RAW file formation stability. I think most of us were expecting something more comprehensive. It does suggest something urgently needed fixing in...

Re: Lexar UHS-II 2000x issues with EM-1 II

I'm afraid (and as I said above) the Rev number is NOT an indication of suitability or up-to-dateness. Apparently the only to be sure is to do the swap with Lexar, which is free.

Re: Lockups with the E-M1 Mark II?

Most of the problems seem to have arisen with Lexar cards, specifically (and unfortunately) mainly with the 2000x UHS-II one that breezed to victory in the recent speed test. I'd bought one, but I...

Re: Lexar UHS-II 2000x issues with EM-1 II

My replacement is a mere Rev C. BUT we have established that this isn't significant - apparently the only way they know if it's the new version is to do a firmware check at the factory.

Re: Lexar UHS-II 2000x issues with EM-1 II

I have today received my replacement card from Lexar, so I was without it for a week during the exchange. It looks identical, so no easy way to determine - other than through use - whether this one...

Re: Lexar UHS-II 2000x issues with EM-1 II

I don't what else I can say. I've only had one minimal problem myself. But Lexar have admitted that the card doesn't work properly in the EM1.2 and are offering a free exchange for one with new...

Re: Lexar UHS-II 2000x issues with EM-1 II

The information I have (which may not be 100% - who knows?) is that the card requires new firmware, not just a reformat. And that that can't be achieved by the user.

Re: Lexar UHS-II 2000x issues with EM-1 II

Actually I haven't had any problem opening files in Lightroom. But any problems in camera - corrupt files, odd operation etc - are being attributed to dodgy cards in slot 1.

Re: Lexar UHS-II 2000x issues with EM-1 II

Lexar have accepted there's a problem. They have provided me with instructions to achieve a swap. I'll shortly be sending them my 64gb card for a swap. As far as I can see, the only cost to me will...

Re: Extended Warranty Help

The service contact and the warranty are two separate things. The standard warranty is two years, but by registering you can increase that to two and a half - for free. An extension beyond that costs.

That's true here in Guildford too, Mark, where our club now has about 15 M43 users.
