  • Hi John i I haven't noticed this myself but I have the "auto brightness" turned off so that the display more accurately displays exposure compensation etc.  You might like to try that and see if it ...
  • Hi A backpack, I know, but I would highly recommend the Flipside 400AW. I have 2 E-M1's, the same 2 PRO lenses plus the ZD 50-200 and 7-14, plus the 60mm macro and an FL36 and it all fits in this ...
  • Hi When I enquired to Olympus Australia last month (February) regarding the availability of the 300mm for a trip to Alaska in July I got the following reply... "Hi Kevin, Thank you for contacting ...
  • From that picture, the 7-14 is longer than the 12-40 when the 12-40 is @~18mm (its minimum length) and without the hood.  With the hood on and set at 40mm, the 12-40 is going to be much longer. I ...
  • Replied in Brain freeze...
    Hi I used to have an E-5 and this happened to me a few times.  Some sort of brain freeze that can only be solved by removing the battery for a while.  I used to find that 30 minutes was enough, ...
  • Hi I have read a lot about the "eyepiece falling off" syndrome but have never experienced it.  The eyecups on my E-1, E-3, E-5 and E-M1 have always been really solid. Luck, I guess... Cheers ...
  • Replied in Kevin...
    Hi Greg Thanks for the information and the excellent photos. I am hoping to "travel light" with respect to photo gear so limiting it to the 50-200 as the biggest lens will be most welcome. I'll ...
  • Hi Linda Yes, I thought of that but our local stores only rent out Canon and Nikon gear - Olympus is too small a player in the NZ market. I talked to US rental companies (e.g. Lens Rentals) but ...
  • Hi Bill Thanks for the info. I didn't know about the Metabones Canon adapter. I will definitely look into it! Cheers Kevin 😃
  • Hi My son's Canon 600D does exactly this, so the implementation is possible.  I'm surprised that Olympus doesn't think it useful.  I don't do much video but it would be nice to have. Cheers Kevin  :-)
  • Hi I use Progo batteries in my E-M1 to good effect. However, the Olympus charger only charges them to ~2/3 full so I now use a Watson Duo charger which tops them right up. Very happy with them. Che ...
  • N/T  ;-)
  • Hi Rick Thanks for the good advice. I have asked Olympus about the release date for the 300mm f4 and, unfortunately, it is not being released until late 2015 (who knows why they are taking so long...).
  • Created discussions 500mm mirror lens for Alaska?
    Hi All In July, I'm going to Alaska for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to see the bears at Lake Clarke (Silver Salmon Creek Lodge).  After reading the recent thread on the OM 500mm mirror lens, I was ...
  • Hi All I enquired about the availability of the 300mm f4 for a trip to Alaska planned for July. This is the reply I got... Cheers Kevin :-| Hi Kevin, Thank you for contacting Olympus Imaging Australia.
  • I seem to remember that it was revealed that the E-M1 had a Panasonic-made (Olympus designed) sensor, which explained the higher noise levels seen compared to the E-M5, which uses a Sony sensor... ...
  • Hi Guy Wow!  That is a good price.  NZ shops are complaining that Olympus Australia doesn't appear to be supplying NZ very well.  Our population is ~18% of that of Australia but we seem to be ...
  • Hi Peter I got it at Photo & Video International in Christchurch (www.photo.co.nz). Yes, it was ordered the day Olympus announced them and failed to turn up in the first batches of lenses sent to ...
  • Hi Jay Thanks for your reply - Yes, we like it here too but I like to travel overseas as well.  The m43 gear will be making a trip to Alaska in July.  I gather that this will test the weather ...
  • Hi All After a LONG wait, I finally picked up my 40-150mm f2.8 PRO kit, which included the MC1.4 teleconverter. As our $ has been dropping a lot lately, I was expecting the price to have gone up ...
