Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

A friend of mine has just been in almost exactly that position, though with Canon in his case.
He traded in both the body and the Tamron and bought an E-M1 Mk2 plus 300mm F4 and 1.4TC. I think he's...

Re: Boris Gate

I would suggest that because 20-30 years ago, any aspiring journalist or similar, wouldn't have a future career if they highlighted every experience of unwanted attention under a table.

Re: Walking boots

I'm really not sure that anyone can answer that as they don't have your feet at the end of their legs.

Re: Anyone lose their eyepiece off their em-5?

Re: Tax Free Purchases from the EU?

Looks a good trip, I hope you enjoy it.
I've taken the Panasonic 14-140 + 100-300mm on a few trips, which seems to cover most things apart from weatherproofing, slipping in the tiny 14 + 20mm...

Now I accept that this is a slightly false scenario, as one wouldn't normally clout a battery with a roofing hammer, but they have been known to do this spontaneously as well.
This was a discharged...

Re: Third party battery failure for OM-D EM5 II

From where did you buy the battery, was that Jessops as well as the camera?
I believe your warranty lies with the vendor, rather than manufacturer/wholesaler.
It's up to them how they deal with...

Re: Third party batteries for the EM1ii (and EM1X)

If you can cope with the extra bulk and weight, a very good reason to use the grip, with battery priority set to it. If the grip battery goes flat at a crucial moment, the camera will revert to...
