Re: Life saving app...

My understanding is, that it only needs data access to download the app itself.
If it's already on your phone, all you need is GPS access so it can self-locate.

Re: 35-100 v 40-150 pro

Whereabouts in Derbyshire are you?
If anywhere near Buxton, you could always drop in for a brew and try one before committing yourself.

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

Personally, I've found the ExPro batteries fine for the Mk1, but when I contacted them recently, they were unable to say when, or if, they were likely to be re-stocking BLH-1 equivalents for the Mk2.

Unfortunately evening meal was served from 10.15-11pm, so I missed most of it.
I did manage to get the tripod out and get one shot in before it immediately clouded over until the eclipse ended. :(

Re: Olympus E5

CEX offer refund, repair, or replacement within 30 days.
I think I'd be likely to try and go for the repair option, maybe suggesting Luton cameras.
