Re: A few Hours in London

Wonderful. You got some great viewpoints and compositions. (You also had some high viewpoints for some). I find the first and last ones particularly appealing.

Re: panasonic lenses

Can this price be for real?

Grey import I imagine, but even so, less than half the best price on Camera Price Buster (and less that someone is trying to sell a used one for here)

Re: Someone got a good deal!

Found a buyer for my HLD-9 without trying (a wanted ad here). I didn't use it until testing it before sending. HLD-7 seems to have low value nowadays. And I don't really need the extra EM-1. I'm not...

Re: Olympus Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 pro lens

About to send PM

ETA Sorry for delay. PM sent now. 12-40 Pro is stunning lens, but now I have 12-100 Pro I don't use the 12-40 much. (Tend to go for primes in low light)

Re: Sigma 150mm Macro Lens 4/3 fit.

I agree. Mine is superb for image quality, whether used as macro or as general purpose telephoto. Works well with EC-14 too, and even EC-20. AF isn't the quickest (not an issue for macro as most...

Re: WARNING: E-M1 Camera body eyelet has come away from camera body!

Yes - mine was done free of charge earlier this year too, despite being old, having been acquired second- (or more-) hand and being well out of any warranty.

Re: Panasonic Leica 200mm

There's always the MMF-3.

(And if adapter + Little Tuna is prohibitively expensive, the Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro is a fine general purpose telephoto lens, though perhaps AF is too slow for some...

Re: LCE em1x

this is going over old ground again, but from the discussions I've read here and elsewhere, I think the E-M1X is not aimed at existing M43 users. It is aimed at 35mm SLR users who shoot sports,...

Re: OMD + 12-100 an overpriced bridge camera?

Great points.

As far as I'm aware the biggest sensor on a bridge camera is 1 inch / 20MPixel, and 4/3rds is over 75% larger (though still 20 MPixel). I'm guessing this is also significant.

Re: OMD + 12-100 an overpriced bridge camera?

My response was "more highly priced and also more highly specified than a bridge camera".

But it's an interesting point, given that some people say how rarely they switch to another lens.

OMD + 12-100 an overpriced bridge camera?

I read elsewhere, contentiously:

"An OMD with the 12-100 lens is effectively an over-priced bridge camera".


As they say in exam papers, "discuss". :-)
