Re: Proposing a completely new hire offering

Good luck with it Ian. I would think that it could work with expensive lenses that people would like to use for a particular trip or to try out over a longer period such as the upcoming 150-400mm...

Re: 35-100 v 40-150 pro

Some people say the 1.4x converter is not so good with the 40-150 pro, but I have found it plenty sharp enough. If you are not in a hurry, you might want to see what the two new Pro Telephoto zooms...

Re: Extended Warranties

I've taken the extended warranties on my cameras. I figure 33 a year is worth it. These are complex machines with plenty that can go wrong and could be expensive to fix.

Re: LCE em1x

I can't really understand the angst here. We do have choices and Olympus make plenty of small cameras. The EM1 Mk2 with v3 firmware is an excellent camera and very close to the EM1X for performance....

Re: LCE em1x

Possibly, but it's got the attention of professionals like Andy Rouse https://www.andyrouse.co.uk/index.php?b=1 and that exposure can help the sales of the EM1 Mk2 etc.

Re: Zuiko 300mm PRO glitch

C-AF uses PDAF and that can be variable. But mine also shows the problem using S-AF where it will be using CDAF and it should be OK. But the +5 adjustment doesn't work in S-AF. I need to send it in,...

Re: Zuiko 300mm PRO glitch

Yes. I found it was focusing just in front of a bird and so I did some tests and +5 has put it spot on. The 300mm on its own is fine.

Check for front / back focus. Mine needs +5 adjustment with the TC.

Re: So who actually has an E-M1x?

Thanks Mal. It's good when they come close and the EM1X did a great job of grabbing the focus.

Re: So who actually has an E-M1x?

I got mine at launch for a good price and I'm very happy with it. I did worry about the extra weight, but I have got used to that very quickly. The main thing for me is that it is so responsive -...

Re: RAF Douglas DC3 "Dakota"

Very nice. Next time you could try reducing the shutter speed to around 1/250th to blur the propellers, but then it's harder to get the plane that sharp!

Thanks for the comments.

Shuttleworth with the EM1X

The first air display of the season at Shuttleworth and a chance to test out the plane tracking mode on the EM1X. It's not hard to use C-AF on these planes, but I found the tracking to be very good...
