Re: My E30 'Metz' with an accident...

Re: My E30 'Metz' with an accident...

My experience with super glue is very mixed (I once glued myself to a small dog by mistake) so I thought best to leave it to the experts.

My E30 'Metz' with an accident...

Re: Stolen camera and lenses - replacement suggestions

Your best option will depend on what you consider to be more important - the greater convenience of a zoom, or the greater flexibility of three primes covering the same focal range.
Personally, I'd...

Re: Sigma EM-140 DG Ring Flash

Not sure there is an Olympus-compatible version of this flash, but I do know Ffordes have 2x used SRF-11 for £299 (and a very nice piece of kit it is too, from my experience with it)

Re: mint e5

Indeed; and from a purely functional perspective, <15k clicks is as close to mint as you might hope to get on an E5

Re: Tower of London

Re: Looking for a bit and of advice

I'd second the 50mm f2. The 35mm Macro was the first lens I added after the kit lens and it's a real cracker - so sharp it'll make your eyes bleed, but the working distance is ridiculously short -...

Re: Squall and Rays

I think the darker treatment is much more dramatic and the boat lends scale to the picture, it's maybe just a little too central for my liking
