Re: All my gear: E-M1, 12-40mm f2.8, 40-150mm 2.8, FD lens +more

Hi Milko,

Is the 12-40 still for sale? I _think_ I sent a PM but didn't tick the "save in sent" option so now I'm not sure if it went!

Re: E-M1 v.3 firmware - CAF improvements

It was that bit of text that led me to reduce the H fps to 9. But that was just me trying to figure out why it was not working. They have not really spelt that if you do leave the H fps at 10 then...

Re: Need people to test the FL-LM2 on their EM-1

Thanks cliff, yes I did know this but had not thought that smooth movement would be an issue... Thinking about this the aperture is wide open then stops down for the shot. It has to do this pretty...

Re: Need people to test the FL-LM2 on their EM-1

Testing, testing

OK it's only my 50mm that has issues with high F over-exposure using the replacement FL-LM2 that arrived. Sorry I should have tested the 11-22 and 50-200 before posting. My 50mm...

Re: Need people to test the FL-LM2 on their EM-1

Thank you for trying, could you do it with something a bit wider too since it seems to go wrong at larger F-stops with my 11-22mm.

Perhaps my EM-1 body has issues (I have tried a second FL-LM2 and...

Re: Need people to test the FL-LM2 on their EM-1

Re: Need people to test the FL-LM2 on their EM-1

Nope I'm in A and it picks 1/60 for the shutter

However... <testing now> .... in M it is erratic at 1/20, at 1/320 and various points in between. In M at 1/320 and F20 it can still over-expose!

These are driven optically on fibre cables that poke into those two holes you see on the front top. The FL-LM2...
