Re: Rumour 70-250 & Oly 100-400

Reason/s for Olympus to produce a 100-400 with performance and price tag in par with the Panasonic Leica (F/6.3) would be an offering with dual IS compatible on Olympus cameras. Let's hope they also...

Re: Bearded reedlings revisited

Beaded reedlings, or bearded tits due to the similarity with the Long-tailed tit. Either works.

Re: E-M1 ii with 4/3rds lenses

Re: 4/3 50-200 f2.8

I tested too and can confirm Pro Capture L is disabled.

Pro Capture H is enabled though so Pro Capture can be used when the distance to subject is static. (That's what I meant with AF-S in my...

Re: More Interest in M4/3 Recently?

To answer that question... first we need to agree on what you refer to with "spotting scope".

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

That's what I meant with mammals in my previous post. When in Tanzania I found the 50-200 extremely useful, that was before I had the 40-150. For European conditions I agree longer focal length is...

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

Re: 4/3 50-200 f2.8

Hi,

"Pro Capture low" should not be constrained by the choice of lens. What may take some time is the initial focus acquisition as it is a 4/3 lens, however, once focus has been acquired the...
