    Here's a bird I got with the 40-150 and 1.4x converter.  Not a prize winner, but not bad for a lunchtime snapshot and 30 seconds in lightroom.  There is a good amount of cropping here, and while I ...
  • I just double-checked in case I missed something, but Olympus only lists the 1.4x Even though you only get to 210mm, the pro 40-150 can be an excellent wildlife lens when you get stuff close.  But ...
  • I didn't think there was a 2x converter for M4/3, I know I used to have the original 2x zuiko model for the old 4/3 systems.  I do have the 1.4x converter, and it's a must with the pro lens.  I ...
  • If it's the same one I've looked at, it seems interesting until you realize it's designed for larger sensor DSLR's, so it's really big.  If they made a version specifically for M4/3 like their ...
  • Haha, the funny thing is, I had to do some sleuthing just to ID this guy I found in Utah on vaction.  Everyone calls them pygmy rattlers, but true pygmies are a species that lives elsewhere.  So ...
  • Windblown It's sure nice to have a camera that is weather-sealed and rugged enough to take some serious abuse while being light and small enough to leave clipped on the outside of a shoulder strap ...
  • That is an issue I address by just closing my eyes between sliding my glasses down and putting the eyecup to my face.  Even when I've spent a long day at elevation on a glacier in bright sun, I ...

    I use polarized sunglasses almost religiously, and have never wanted to stop using them because of my camera. Those kind of glasses are too great for use outdoors, and all I have to do is slip ...
  • I must admit, that new lens is almost as intriguing as all the camera rumors.  I'm assuming it'll be weather sealed from looking at it.  As much as I have not been a fan of superzooms in the past, ...
  • The sensor is still only part of the equation.  As a former shooter of the old E-system DSLR's I remember people being disappointed that the E-5 used the old sensor, but the improvements that ...
  • Replied in 2.8 vs 4
    Yeah, and the Oly 7-14 will be a stop faster as well as the above.  I'll want it either way, though the price is gonna determine the "when" for me.
  • Hello everyone, I've generally been a stills specialist, but have decided to start collecting more video snippets this year and work on that side of things to add an additional dimension to ...
  • Replied in Amazon
    I had the same conundrum with a bunch of old DSLR gear recently, and I went with selling it on Amazon.  I might have been able to milk a little more money on Ebay, but I refuse to sell there ...
  • I bought the T-025x with the bundled ballhead, and never looked back.  It's the perfect setup for me, really light, reasonably tall, balances with M4/3 well, and suprisingly versatile.  I've ...
  • Whether you are a zoom or prime guy (Or like me, believe they are both awesome), is what you can have in 3 small lenses that take very little space in your pack.  I have three that go almost ...
  • Where do you live, Norway?  The 40-150 has already gotten me some great shots and I live in Alaska.  Wide open should be fine as long as you get a little daylight.  I have noticed that too ...
  • Hmm, chest pack...  Not a bad idea.  I currently use a clip for my EM-1 that locks it into the shoulder pack of a bag when I backpack, which is great when I'm carrying a pack.  And I have taken ...
  • Replied in TG-3
    That looks to be about the best option if I go the compact route. It get's decent reviews for IQ, and has an F2 lens at the wide end which isn't bad.  Is the image quality and low-light ability ...
  • Created discussions Waterproof M4/3 options?
    Hello everyone, I have this problem, and I was curious to see if anyone in this forum has found a solution that might work for me. I started a challenge recently, where I am climbing the mountain ...
  • But then, for me that depends on whether I'm flying, busing, or actually backpacking... I have to make those decisions every time I leave the house, depending on the objective, the pack I am ...
