Re: New MC 20 announced.

My order is now marked as 'shipped', but no tracking info yet.

Would be great to get it before visiting Exmoor/Durlstone/Arne next week, but an express 24 hr delivery would prevent an earlier trip elsewhere. (It's a hard, hectic life being early retired).

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Really looking forward to seeing some results. I guess, to be fair you might have work at the first few. My worry is, is the IS up to it. I am hoping Oly have sorted that with the latest update....

Good luck, you are our guide.......

My MC-14 (bought with 40 - 150 f2.8) has almost never been off my 300mm f4 since I aquired the latter.

Hoping my MC-20 will perform as well.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

My MC-20 should be arriving from SRS today.
Big problem is that I have a busted ankle at the moment, so can’t get out to try it for a while!

Coincidentally, Olympus told me yesterday, that they now have stock ready in their online shop.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

If anybody has ordered from the Oly Store and is having trouble tracking delivery (their website is having problems), input the UPS tracking number (1Z5843F7687*******) from Order Overview in your account into UPS's own tracker https://www.ups.com/track?loc=en_GB&requester=ST/ and scroll down to Shipment Progress

My MC-20 is in Dusseldorf, delivery on Tuesday.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Just seen an article on the MC-20 by Tesni Ward on her blog here if it is of interest: http://www.tesniward.co.uk/the-mc-20/

Worth a read if considering getting one.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Quick grab shot this morning with the 300 and MC-20. Windy and overcast so had to bump ISO up to 2000. Hand held f11 inclusive & 1/200th. Looks very promising.



Spotted Flycatcher.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

That is very impressive Andrew. Have you taken any at full aperture for comparison? A 'quick grab shot' of a Spotted Flycatcher - you know how to rub it in.

I thought you'd like that! As they are on the second nest in the garden they are an easy target.

F8 and 200 iso with 100% crop.

Re: New MC 20 announced.

Looks extremely good to me Andrew nicely shot. Even if you hadn't just grabbed it. Looking at the Tesni and Robin articles with careful use it looks like a must have accessory. Not that I needed the excuse I'd already hit the buy button so hopefully mine is on it's way soon. Can't wait to see how it will fair with butterflies on the 40-150.

Just had a quick try with the 40-150 and it's not so good until you reach f9 and up. Not too surprising based on the MTF chart.
