Re: Light Meter issues

Thanks for the reply - no aperture ring used, so working at F2 - the old E400 copes with that extremely well so there is something amiss with the new one.

Thanks for the...

Re: Light Meter issues

Update 04.02.15.

It's definitely the camera, not the lens, as I've put my original 14-42mm lens on & there's no difference. Today I put the Lensbaby Composer on, so there's no aperture to change...

Re: Shutter count

Mine's now on just over 28,000 - it was a birthday present to me, brand new in May 2007. It's got some life left yet. :D

Re: Anyone still using their E400 in anger?

Yes - I'm using it with my Lensbaby Composer & optics - it has a Katzeye focusing screen, and as you have to manually focus the Lensbaby, it's a no brainer! 28k shutter count in almost 8yrs - got a...

Question E3 F__ Error

I am new to the E3, having bought a second hand body back in July. I have an E400 so use the same lenses between cameras.
