Rmark's recent activity

  • Currently I use a Mac Mini (2009) with a 23" Dell monitor  with Aperture, as my primary machine. I also have an 11" MBA that I use for travel. I was going to update the mini, but was advised to ...
  • When I acquired the EM1 I purchased the MMF-3 , as my primary interest was to use my FT lenses      ( mainly the 12-60 and the 50-200) . I recently picked up an older Panasonic FT-mFT adapter on ...
  • I have to agree 100%. I have always had a nice camera, and they have lasted a long time. My first enthusiast  SLR was a Canon F1. I used it for more than 15 years, repaired twice. With digital ...
  • Thanks , hope to find another with better macro gear
  • While entertaining my grandson for a few days we drove to Conowingo dam, known for frequent sightings of Bald Eagles. Did not see an eagle but found this EM1, 50-200+EC14
  • Replied in Young Osprey
    Taken a few years ago in Cape May NJ. E620 and 70-300
  • $200 might be possible, but KEH is selling them closer to $400. looking at recent sold listings on eBay I saw from $234 to 317 (looking only at auctions) I was considering selling my E30 ,as it's ...
  • I do things in a similar manner. In a car I'll bring the 50-200, 1.4, tripod etc. With the E30 (and now the M1), my walkabout lens was always the 12-60  (I did buy the mFT 17mm1.8 , and it is a ...
  • I contacted Reef Photo and Video., The Nauticam Housing is likely the best housing for the EM1, however the vacuum bulkhead is not suitable to use for wired strobe sync cables. due to its position ...
  • LOL, now Im even more confused. The 12-60 is really one of my favorite lenses, and have had it for 3 years. The only reason I bought into the EM1 was to use my FT lenses, since Olympus was not ...
  • I certainly appreciate everyones input, still confused though..:)...The consensus that the 12-40 would work well as a main walk about lens with no loss of quality over the 12-60 I  understand.  If ...
  • The E30 was the best camera I ever owned. Better even than the Canon F1 and A1 film cameras and to me better handling than the Olympus E3. I unexpectedly acquired an EM1 as a gift last March, have ...
  • I acquired an EM1 last March ( sort of retirement gift ) and have been using it with my FT lenses. Primarily the 12-60 (and the 50-200SWD), and have had no problems. focus is fine, and I love the ...
  • Well, it seems to be faster than I would have expected. for non-macro distances, say portrait, or indoor 1 meter to 2 meter range it focuses like my other FT lenses (14-54, 50 mm) not neck ...
  • I have the Sigma 105, but have not yet tried it on the M1. Like many macro lenses I found this lens slow to focus on the E30, but actually not much worse than the ZD50mm. Especially at macro distances
  • Created questions OMD-EM1 as an UW camera?
    Has anyone used the EM1 for diving, either with the Olympus housing or the Nauticam?. Do either of the housings have a bulkhead for wired strobes (vs fiber optic). I have nothing against fiber ...
  • The ZD 50-200 + 1.4 would give you less reach then the 70-300.  The combo would yield a maximum of 283mm .
  • Yep, I think your right.
  • Replied in Wow!
    Same, would not have the EM1 if I didn't find a nice 'LN' used one at 25% of list. I didn't buy the EM1 particularly for the size and weight savings, but to get a more modern sensor for my FT ...
