  • Letter to Olympus Europe

    On the end of May 2018, I wrote this mail to Olympus Europe. I hope they wish to help us.

I make much fewer images today than I have in previous times, and I expect this trend to continue. Progress in art is not about becoming more prolific; it's about becoming more demanding." - Guy Tal

      As you probably know Olympus (Iberian Olympus which manages both countries, Portugal and Spain) lends cameras to the people they choose.
      I see no reason why they should not patronise our project, which will be viewed by so many people. As you read above in my first post, I am willing to give personal warranties.

      However, I am aware that - most probably - they will not lend me 3 cameras but if they do, just one with the three lens: :dance4:
      Anyway I would be - I am anyway - thrilled to the perspective of making shots with these beautiful primes.
      If the other lenses are so great, why shouldn't these be even better ? :yahoo:

      I have bookmarked this thread so I can keep you all, knowing how things are going.

      Than you for commenting !

          Of course OM USer !

          I hope they say yes !
          Once I was borrowed a 75mm. I made some photo of my grand son and I found it to be superb !
          Even on the screen of the camera I could see the quality of the image. Later I confirmed the fact on my home computer.

          Cheers !
