  • Could be, but faced with the obvious advantage of the first choice it seems self-defeating. Again, Oly gear is internationally guaranteed.
  • Exactly! It makes even less sense because of the International Warranty! It's so silly it's stupid. "Hey, I'll pay the same price, no free SM card, and I'll also pay for shipping!" Crazy lame ...
  • Created discussions two listings at B&H for EM-1?
    Can anyone explain to me the logic why B&H has the EM-1 listed twice, both at the same price but one with a USA warranty and free shipping and a free SM card, the other without the free card, a ...
  • Replied in refurbished
    Are warranties the same?
  • Replied in refurbished
    Thanks to both. These deals are from Olympus, too.
  • Created discussions refurbished
    Could someone explain to me (for like the umpteenth time) what exactly refurbished is and if it is a good deal. Sorry, I'm old and slow...
  • If this is so then Think Tank needs to think and promote this. They don't. The way that extended snout looks to me it looks like its sides are not padded enough to face the outside world. If you ...
  • http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HRNDYGK/ref=pe_62860_121774850_em_1p_4_ti Curious no pic with it on actually on the camera.
  • While the EM-1’s AF speed with 43 lenses has been called equal to the speed on 43 bodies, I was curious if adapters play any hand in the matter. I have the first (and only?) Panasonic adapter, ...
  • Actually, the money has to be used soon. (It's tricky, complicated.) As for getting a lens instead, gosh---I have enough lenses. My preferred scenario was to just wait until the EM-1 price came down.
  • All these replies are hitting nails on the head. I need to clarify; the money for the camera is coming from a mutual fund (inheritance) but one that I have not tapped that much.
  • Created discussions My EM-1 vs. EM-10 dilemma
    First off, I know all the differences. I’m a long time Oly user and have been shooting with the EM-5. My problem is rather odd. If I had a direct call on my side, I’d spring for the EM-1. I love ...
  • Interesting to hear, I have the old version.
  • i cant answer for glen but on my omd-5 the 14-54 focuses fast enough but not as well as a micro 43 lens. nothing odd here...
  • you misread. i didnt say i didnt like it, it was my workhorse lens for years. i said i didnt think it was a stellar stand out lens.
  • Created discussions 14-54 vs. 12-40
    Has anyone compared the 43 old standard tele 14-54 2.8-3.5 to the new micro 43 12-40 2.8? although I took a great many nice pics with the former in my 6 years shooting with my E-1, I wouldn’t ...
  • Yeah, I've seen those and was curious if they'd work. But without extra padding you'd probably need a lens wrap or case if you put it in the bottom of the holster, correct? (I've never handled ...
  • Created discussions holster bag tactical question
    Does anyone know of a holster bag that can hold both an SLR w/lens and---here’s the important part, an extra lens in a secure padded spot of its own? I have one from Kata but it’s too small for ...
  • I’ve considered this but unless the extra lens can be secured and padded I’d be afraid of it crashing against the other equipment. Added lens cases strapped on are not for me, they’d knock the ...
