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

Is this the one that's 48.97 for 2 batteries + usb charger?

How long does one take to charge using their charger?

And are you going to try charging a genuine Oly battery in their charger?

Re: Olympus developing a new 500mm lens?

What I don't understand is how a professional photographer can state a m4/3 300mm lens isn't suitable (long enough?), but say a DSLR with a 500mm lens is O.K.

Re: E-M5 Mk III

For EM-5 Mk II owners considering upgrading who use large lenses, it's not just the additional cost of a few new batteries, but maybe another couple of hundred pounds for a new battery grip.
