Re: Rear dial problem

I hope that you continue to be lucky. I am using the 'dial spinning' technique to keep things going, but it only helps a bit.

Re: Rear dial problem

Thanks for the update. Your situation sounds very like mine. I'm trying to cope for as long as I can, but I think it will need attention soon.

Re: Rear dial problem

Just wondering whether you had any luck with Olympus yet? I've had the same problem for a while now, and it is getting worse. I discussed it with Olympus sales a couple of weeks ago when attending...

Re: 12-60 mm Front Seal

Update on this issue. I spoke to Olympus on the phone on Friday 28 March and they couldn't provide a 'standard' repair price for this lens. They arranged courier pickup on Monday 31 March and I...

Re: 12-60 mm Front Seal

Thank you John. I'll look into both options tomorrow. Because I was in a sandy environment when it happened, I wonder whether a general service and clean might be in order anyway.

Re: 12-60 mm Front Seal

I'm a bit surprised that this seems like a fairly common problem on such a well regarded lens. Some sort of 'lubrication' does seem in order, as suggested by Jim.

Re: 12-60 mm Front Seal

Thank for your advice Jim. I did as you suggested when my 70-300 became a little tight, and it did work, though I also worried about what Olympus would think of the treatment. In this case, I had...

12-60 mm Front Seal

Has anyone had an experience of the front seal of a 12-60 SWD lens popping out? Mine has, and at first the symptom was simply that the 'zoom' became very stiff. In other respects, the lens was...

DxO support for E-M1

Sorry, but I may have posted this in the wrong place initially, under E-M1.

I wonder whether anyone out there uses DxO software with their new E-M1, and is disappointed that DxO do not appear to...

DxO support for E-M1

I wonder whether anyone out there uses DxO software with their new E-M1, and is disappointed that DxO do not appear to have any intent on producing 4/3 lens modules. At the moment, I am using all of...

Re: Message from Olympus UK re E-M1 supply issues

I agree with Brian, above. Andre Kellerberg also replied to me within a few hours of me emailing him. Mine was already in the post and arrived the next day. To be fair to the Olympus Shop, they...

Re: Message from Olympus UK re E-M1 supply issues

Mine arrived yesterday afternoon as well. So far so good. Everything seems to be working fine, with a few little noises, which although different, seem perfectly reasonable to me. I also need to...

Re: Message from Olympus UK re E-M1 supply issues

I had an email from Olympus this morning saying:

"We are very sorry for the delay due to high demand.

We are aiming to fulfil the pre orders by the end of November."

I had been told early...

Re: DxO Optics pro 9, de-noising.

Thank you Peter, but I am still a little concerned whether the E-M1 may require the Elite version since I know that the E5 did. It would be nice to find out before 20 Nov, when the 39 offer for...

Unhappy Re: DxO Optics pro 9, de-noising.

Does anyone know whether it is correct to assume that the 'Elite' version of OP9 will be required for the E-M1? At the moment I use the standard version, but might bulk at upgrading to the 'Elite'...

Re: Batteries for OM-D EM-1

That is the battery that I have just ordered. I will report back on how good it is when I get the camera, not until next month.

Re: Batteries for OM-D EM-1

Thank you Stephen. I've just ordered one to give it a try. 2 year warranty sounds reasonable.

Re: Batteries for OM-D EM-1

Thank you Stephen. They are mostly so much cheaper than the Oly battery, I just wondered which ones to avoid. I will tread carefully.

Batteries for OM-D EM-1

Re: 70-300 autofocus problems.

I have just agreed the repair at a 'standard' cost of 138.00 and should have the lens back, next week. I will obviously be VERY careful with the lens hood in the future, and trust that this is...

Thanks Stephen. Mine goes back tomorrow. It would be interesting to know how old his is and how Oly respond.

Re: 70-300 autofocus problems.

Thanks everyone. Although I've always tried to be careful when removing the lens hood, I suspect damage from this action may still be the problem. Interestingly, I don't think Olympus give any...
