Re: Bird in Flight - Fens Falconry Sunday 9th March

If you or anyother member could bring along an OM manual long lens I would be grateful!

QUOTE=Ian;283200]Any requests for lenses and camera bodies for me to bring along?


An E-M10 was supposed to be with me by now but nothing has turned up so far

I do have a Stylus 1 that someone requested. I also have the new body cap fisheye - which is rather good!

I will also bring:

Some E-M1 bodies and grips
Some MMF-3 adapters
A 90-250 f/2.8
A couple of 300 f/2.8s
A 35-100 f/2.0
A 50-200SWD
A 50-200 Mk1
Andy already has my 150 f/2
A couple of 75-300s
A couple of 75mm f/1.8s

Anything else?

Not more temptation John?

Looks like your going to have a good day, so jealous, haven't been able to get out with the camera in ages (not even for images of Joshua).

Yes Simon, more temptation, not to purchase but maybe to hire in the future? I'd love to own one of course, but.........

Hope you manage to get out eventually.

Blimey only just seen the email info. Didn't realise we'd get homework too
Excellent details just wish I'd seen them earlier. Off to check settings.
Definitely looking forward to tomorrow.

Re: Bird in Flight - Fens Falconry Sunday 9th March

Hi Everyone,
Trust you had a great afternoon.
Sorry not to be with you - car blew gasket on M11 - had to be recovered to home - not a great day for me - but never mind.

Best wishes to you all.

Pete
