Re: Boris Gate

I don't think the old who are on their way out should be able to dictate the future of the young and so I would make the voting age 16 to 65 (with a link to the State Pension age as it rises).

I liked this recognition from Canon. It'll be interesting to see how their system works.

Re: Motorway Brexit signs.

100m has been wasted on media adverts and displays in motorway service stations etc. Pure propaganda.

Re: More Interest in M4/3 Recently?

I'm seeing a lot more birders with m4/3 gear now. Others seem to be more aware of the format too. I think it helps that people like David Tipling and Andy Rouse have been promoting it. Although I'm...

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

Re: Zuiko 300mm PRO glitch

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