  • How's this for a 600mm equivalent reach lens

    ...and note, this is no kit lens either.

  • That makes no sense. One can't compare a 300mm m4/3 lens with a 300mm FF lens. They are different systems. Dx is a cropped version of FF but m4/3 is not a cropped version of anything. M4/3 is a...

  • Replied in Rubbish!
    I think you are missing the point of the sort of photography most of us do.  The camera captures what is there as best it can.  What we see is something else.  What we see crowded with our own ...
  • Replied in OI.Share
    A great find!  I've tried it.  It's a little fiddly but I have no choice thanks to Olympus.  Neither anti-shock nor self-timer will work with focus stacking and my RC-200 and RM-1 push-button ...
  • Replied in OI.Share
    Point taken.  It's just that I know Windows fairly well and for better or worse, I can't be bothered learning another OS.  Life is too short for that.  It's bad enough learning the E-M1 after the ...
  • As much as I admire and respect Robin Wong, one must remember that he has a relationship with Olympus to which he openly admits.  So in a line ball situation, he would hardly be likely to ...
  • The M.ZD ED 75mm f1.8 mentioned above would certainly be worth looking at however if it's for outdoor work, don't overlook the weather-sealed M.ZD 60mm f2.8 macro. Both have good reviews on Robin ...
  • The second pic is great.  It dramatically shows up issue with electronic shutters.
  • It looks to me that silent mode should be relegated to situations where absolute stealth is required and accepting an IQ trade-off.  I haven't tried silent mode on its own but have been playing ...
  • Created discussion thread OI.Share
    Any other Windows phone users frustrated that OI.Share is not available for Windows?  Wi-Fi is a significant functionality available on my E-M1 but it's lost to me unless I move to a less ...
  • Created discussion thread Are focussing rails redundant now?
    The in-camera focus stacking now available on the E-M1 has renewed my interest in macro.  I thought, now I'll have to get a quality focusing rail so I did some research.  There are focusing rails ...
  • Yes I agree.  It is so good to see that manufacturers providing gratuitous functionality additions and performance improvements rather than just bug fixes.  I wish the niggardly car manufacturers ...
  • Agreed!
  • Good advice!  Keep it simple before you jump into the manual.  The options are ridiculously extensive.  First thing to learn is how to return to factory defaults.  You might be doing that often.  ...
  • Created discussion thread Focus bracketing
    So I've put V4 into the E-M1 and gave this new fangled focus stacking/bracketing a go with the M.ZD 60mm macro. It's fantastic. I can't see that anyone would contemplate marco without it ever ...
  • I am an Oly fan boy there is no doubt.  Nevertheless, I find it hard to recommend you having two systems.  It surely can't be cost effective.  Although, since you already have a full frame camera ...
  • Created discussion thread M.Zuiko lens reviews
    No doubt DPR has a swag of gear to review but me thinks it's time some of the new Oly lens offerings were reviewed.  I make it that there are 17 new lenses that have not yet been reviewed and none ...
  • It would help if you explained the acronym SCP.  Just saying.
  • Ah, I get it! It's meant as in"Alpha predator". I've never hear the term "alpha dog". I guess it's an Americanism. I was thinking more in terms of, "My car is a dog to start on cold mornings"...

  • Why do you call it a "dog"? In Aussie slang it implies the camera is no good. Is that what you mean?
