  • Re: One thing many existing Olympus users expect from the new camera - BIF!

    I have seen your images Chevvy, I have been a member since 2009. I visit the forum daily. I tend not to make comments for the sake of commenting. I look at every single thread in Foto Fair and looking for improvement.

    I have no intentions of being shot down and when you have finished ranting and read it properly you may realise the point i am trying to get across is that there is more to BIF than the kit as "our Ian" states in the opening of this very thread!

    You use Flickr, search Olympus E5 bird in flight

    Is there really any need for the use for capitals?
    Thanks

      OK Tim and Chevvy, I can sense friction developing between you and experience tells me that by the nature of photo forums this will not end well. I'm sure if you were having a chat in a pub with something nice in your glass and was able to see each others facial expressions you would get a better context of each other's remarks and you'd simply grin and offer to buy each other another drink.

      That's not possible on the forum, so I suggest that you both pause, take a deep breath and allow the thread to change course.

      Thank you.
      John

        That is correct - 600mm equivalence.

            Chevvy, you need another cuppa! You've asked about lens compatibility how many times?

            The answer won't change: Micro Four Thirds lenses can only work on Micro Four Thirds bodies but Four Thirds lenses can be fitted to Micro Four Thirds bodies via an adapter.

            Ian

            PS Just to be very sure, the 150-600 equivalence is compared to Full Frame cameras. 300mm on an E-5 (Four Thirds) is exactly the same power as 300mm on Micro Four Thirds.

              Chevvy you asked this question in post #129 of this thread. The answer was given in post #130 and is still the same, unfortunately no.

              Regards.

                And it's not Olympus sneakily forcing you to buy Micro Four Thirds; one of the technical advantages of Micro Four Thirds is that the lens mount can be much closer to the sensor (slimmer body design). This enables the optics of many lenses, especially wide angle lenses, to be more compact in design. The Micro Four Thirds adapter is basically a spacer to restore the distance required to mount and focus a Four Thirds lens on a Micro Four Thirds body.

                    Micro Four thirds lenses are taking us back to the era of the 35mm rangefinder cameras, when the lens was close to the film plane.

                    When the SLR came along, the lens had to be moved further away from the film to allow the mirror to flap about. This required all the lenses for SLRs to be redesigned, to much moaning from the users of 35mm range finder cameras who lost their favourite lenses if they transferred to SLRs. Fortunately the number of people using cut film and plate cameras was small and so their opinions could be ignored in the move to SLRs as well as 35mm rangefinders. They just continued taking excellent clear well composed images at the rate of about one or two a day and probably achieving a better hit rate than the DSLR user. <g>

                      Ian, I have had my mind elsewhere these two days - apologies for repetition, not much has been sinking in


                      I have just seen this - the 75-300 and Owl Bif


                      http://www.olympus.co.uk/site/en/c/c...tml?f=feature3

                        Is it better to order from Oly or go through a local supplier?
                        Are the offers the same? and will the availability be the same?

                          I've pre-ordered mine through Wex, mainly because they are my supplier of choice. I couldn't see any difference in the offers, you still have to register with Olympus to be in the running for the free grip / MMS (for existing E owners only if I understand correctly). On the Olympus site the grip is said to be fist come, first served with limited supply
