Re: To edit or not to edit! that's the question?

Not me but I think that I might have looked for a position that didn't include them. Easy for me to say this though as I don't know the area......

Re: FW Update 12-50mm lens to Version 1.4

Don't think so. I have it and it's a versatile lens. However, I also have the 12-40 which is much nicer. Occasionally I consider selling the 12-50 but then decide it's a better size on my Pen F.

Re: Olympus lens cap Rear

I have bought a number of ones from EBay (which look near enough identical to the Oly ones) and have glued them back to back with Araldite to make the storage of my small primes easier.

It is a very busy image and the glove is at the edge of the frame (partly going out actually). The bright area outside the window is distractive and draws my eye away from the interesting machinery....

Re: Olympus or Panasonic ... That is the question.

As for VFM, the 75-300 is superb. But it does need good light due to its slow speed at the long end (actually it is best to avoid the full 300mm if you can). Depending on what you are shooting, I...

Re: Thumbs up for the 75-300

I tend not to use mine much but it is much more manageable than the 40-150Pro plus MC14. I am still in two minds about its performance but I need to use it a bit more in good light. Thinking about...

Re: Olympus 7 14 f4

Is there a way to overcome this with this lens? If I need to control exposure (say sky and landscape), I would take two bracketed images and merge them in PP.
