Re: 35-100 v 40-150 pro

Re: Extended Warranties

Re: Zuiko 300mm PRO glitch

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

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...
