Highland Park you say......way back when....when I was in North Scotland I stayed at one and only B&B in that famous jumping off point John O'Groats where another chap and I drank all the single malt in the tiny bar and of course it was H.P.......the proprietor apologized that he was now out of it and would have to replenish it the next day! Mmmm it was good!!

Good times and great memories, Bill, you can't beat a whisky for that! Many of my best memories from my hillwalking days feature a single malt at some point!

Re: The Four Thirds solution - what would you like to see?

I have read bits of this thread but what should be being anounced between now and the end of the year is a line up of at least Four 4/3 cameras to replace the old line of DSLR's. The Canikon line ups are just getting bigger.

Re: The Four Thirds solution - what would you like to see?

The new OMD is just around corner so my take may not be relevant or of any interest.

There must be an adapter like the MMF1~3 for the mFT to use FT lenses due to the distant from the sensor. Also the FT lenses would require more juice to operate.

Maybe Oly can put a powered grip that would increase the power for the FT and increase the size of the camera for the FT to work even faster speed with the added power.

Also adding the extra powered grip, the camera may be transformed to a bigger camera for better balance with the FT lenses. Then those using pure mFT lenses would not be burdened with a bigger body if they do not use and FT lenses.

The E-m5 grip should be maintained for those who so not need the FT size and AF speed. And those who do not need the blazing AF speed of the powered grip can stay with the E-m5 grip and the older MMF for the FT lenses.

Re: The Four Thirds solution - what would you like to see?

Do I now need to try a bottle of Highland Park?
It seems recommended all of a sudden for Olympus users.

I "learned" my malt on Highland Park, from an Orcadian work colleague and some ex-Orcadian neighbours. Ah, happy days!

I'm afraid you do.

I suggest we start a sub forum called MALTS (Malt Appreciation and Late-night Tasting Society)

Re: The Four Thirds solution - what would you like to see?

So is this a celebration? Are we toasting a news release? or have we just gone off piste (pronounce that in any way you choose)

Early indications are favourable enough to allow us a modest celebration, which is why we are considering going on the piste!
