Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

That will be a stonking long lens, no doubt at a long price too.

Re: E620

Buying a cheap old PC or laptop with the right connections might be a route. As long as you don't connect to the internet it hardly matters what operating system it has.

Re: Proposing a completely new hire offering

I too am in the fortunate position of owning all the bodies and lenses I am likely to need. There's a very small chance I might hire the 150-400 when it comes out.

Re: EM5ii

Yes - but you're paying more and getting less! Moreover I indicated that reasonable offers would be accepted. Anyway, as my earlier post said, it's history now.

Re: Mara River Crossings

We've never done a walking safari and as as we're both over 75 I think the time may have passed for that. Several camps do them. There are also a few driving trails only open to 4x4 which you have...

Re: Mara River Crossings

We'll be back to the Kruger again, probably for a fortnight which will give time to do the northern part where we haven't been for several years. For anyone thinking of going the SAN Parks website...

Re: Mara River Crossings

I really enjoyed the narrative and photos. It should inspire Phill D and others to take the plunge. There's nowhere quite like Africa for getting stunning wildlife photos. Our next trip is...

Re: HDEW..Ridiculous price.

I bought my 300/4 from HDEW. It developed a problem during the guarantee period and was quickly repaired. I'd happily use them again.

Re: Olympus E-1 plus 14-54, lenses and some accessories

When I joined the forum that was state of the art kit. It's sad to see it going for so little but I guess that's progress in the digital world.

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

The EM1 eventually arrived at its destination on Friday, a full week after I posted it. Some of the delay was probably due to the batteries but the rest is unexplained.

Re: E-M10 shutter repair

I bought a Mk2 from a forum member earlier this year. It was sensibly priced because of a scratch on the LCD and I've been very pleased. All the photos in my Fishy Tale saga posted a couple of...

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

There obviously is a scanning system. I've just sold an EM1 on eBay and posted it on Friday, expecting it to be delivered on Saturday. It got stuck yesterday for a Dangerous Goods Review at Royal...

Re: Great Migration, Maasai Mara - introductory post

We did five safaris in Kenya between 1966 and 1991, covering Tsavo East and West, Mara, Amboseli and smaller parks like Nakuru, Naivasha, Hell's Gate and the various lakes, such as...

Re: More than one camera

When I'm doing 'serious' photography such as safaris or longer holidays I take 2xEM1 with appropriate lenses. However I still find space for the EM10 and 14-42EZ because it fills a different niche.

Re: More than one camera

The EM10 is worth considering as a backup. It lacks many of the features of the EM1ii but is much smaller, lighter and less expensive. It fits nicely in a cargo pocket with the 14-42EZ but will...

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

I've now also got a Green Cell battery. This is rated at 1900mAh. It charges in the Olympus charger and gives the right reading in the camera but I have yet to find how long it lasts. ...
