    Re: Continuous display on macro lens

    Hi Ross - you may just be right

    Certainly in terms of Pens and OM-Ds I'm correct regarding live view but yes the non-optimised lenses may stick to PDAF mode even on an E-620. I actually have an E-620 here at home but the 35mm is at the office and there are no old-style lenses here I can try.

      Yeah, sorry to correct you. I'm not a tidy person & have my lenses & cameras arrayed around me on the table & the E30 was at my foot (I get it out occasionally to try other things, like the Sigma 150 lens) & it was right there to try. Also, I can't help myself, but I'm a bit pedantic & have most of the manuals saved so I can look them up if I want to (& have too much time on my hands that should be put to doing my paid work or work around the house). I also save manuals of cameras I have on my wish list & now I am wishing I had bought the E-M1 last year when I could have (although the Stylus 1 still proves to be useful).

      I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
