Re: ONE Macro Hibiscus

I'm looking forward to trying my 60mm macro on the new body :)

Re: It's on its way!

Just to clarify, Hec, that I am in reality still awaiting my E-M1, and am in the same situation as you.

My addition to Simon's thread, was by way of wishful thinking, or in jest, and I share many...

Re: OMD E-M1 Sample Images

Hard to tell exactly without seeing more of the antenna, Brian.
It's suggestive of a Radio Amateur VHF / UHF directive array, which rotates to the required direction, and has "gain" in the direction...

Re: OMD E-M1 Sample Images

Thanks again for sharing your first impressions and shots, Brian.

Just to advise the "junction box" is, in fact, an antenna rotator assembly :)

E-M1 C-AF video from Youtube

This was impressive I thought.
Using a 75-300mm, video and C-AF.

Re: Very Disappointed In Olympus

Thanks for this, Ian.

Speaking personally as someone who was told by Olympus that I would definitely be in the prioritised batch for delivery this week (and indeed posted that on here), I have now...

Re: Shooting BIF with the EM-1

Re: BIF with the E-M1

Thanks David for posting these initial thoughts.

I'm particularly interested in your comparisons with the 7D, particularly in low light and with respect to IQ, as this was a serious alternative...

Re: Very Disappointed In Olympus

I was told yesterday by an Olympus Manager in the UK that there will be a further shipment in 2 weeks time, and my order is now a priority.

I'm not sure that our sentiments about being early...

Re: Delivery dates...

Hi Hec,

My call did arrive, so kudos to the executive who took the time to contact me.

Sadly the news is not so bright, but a date has been given, and my order has been prioritised, but is...

Re: Delivery dates...

I too am waiting for a promised phone call.
Have sat waiting now for 3 hours, and my patience is running thin.
If I do not have the courtesy of the promised call I too will have to make a decision....

Re: Delivery dates...

Brian...I'm not arguing that. :(

But if they do debit my card, I expect the goods to have been sent!

In my case, at least, I have now been told they are on Back order, so to have taken the...

Re: It's on its way!

I was told by the end of this week,...

Finally a good test of C-AF

Pekka Potka has provided 6 sample images from a series at 6fps using C-AF, which show the potential of the E-M1 in experienced hands.

Read some of his comments to see what I mean about...

Re: OM-D EM-1 - Great things 2 come

:)

It's looking as if the shipping time has slipped a little, to late October/Early November, assuming Olympus Support were correct yesterday...

Hope that's a little pessimistic?

Re: C-AF on M4/3 lenses

That is my conclusion too.
We still need to see some proper testing.

Re: C-AF on M4/3 lenses

If I may say you may be missing the point slightly :)

No-one is asking if the E-M1 is competing with the Canon 7D, but exactly where it fits in the current hierarchy of available cameras.

Re: C-AF on M4/3 lenses

The likely truth is that the number interested in the E-M1 just for BIF is probably limited, so although Olympus reckon there will inevitably be some returns, they presumably factor in this will be a...

Smile Re: Prolific Posters :EEK:

What a great post, Chevvy!

I have been "lurking" for some months, but only posted over the last few days because of the new E-M1.
