  • Might suit a “light” RAW user with access to fast broadband but not suitable for heavy RAW user with slower broadband. I much prefer storing my images on my own multiple RAID drives, stored in...

    Many thanks for posting yet another lovely nostalgic set of photos.

  • Commented on Olympus PEN E-P5 Review preview

    On the other hand it is great fun shooting in candle light with my M240 at 3200ISO or above and f0.95 Noctilux. I still use Kodak T-Max 3200 in my M4 but film grain is somehow much more acceptable...

    New firmware a definite improvement, particularly with the 75-300 lens, which always seemed to settle at the critical 1/160 second. However Olympus could have made the menu implementation of the...

  • Commented on 1939: England in Color (part 1) article

    The car is a Morris 8 but all the pictures are great. Very nostalgic. I wish I had some of my dad’s colour photos from 1938 to 66 of Scotland and his various trips to Europe but my mother threw...

  • The thing that impresses me is the heat resistance of the landing legs. I assume they must be covered in some sort of ablative material, such as tantalum hafnium carbide, but even so, to retain...

  • I am getting the error message “Check Status of Lens with a brand new M-Zuiko 75-300. I got this the first time I mounted it but popping and reinserting the battery sorted it and I assumed it was ...
  • Purple fringing on a 50 ASPH Summilux - shock horror! Taken together with the incredibly stiff and graunchy focus, the ever present fringing on high contrast edges on my M8 and M9, was why I sold ...
  • Having owned both V1 and 2 CV 35/1.2 Noktons and both Pre and ASPH 35 Summiluxes I would have have said it it like comparing a Dacia with a Porsche. The CV’s have poor micro contrast and are very ...
  • D, Thanks for the update. That information has confirmed for me, that I shall not be getting a Nokton. I was going to buy a Noctilux 50/f0.95 this year but sadly I had to go to Switzerland to have ...
  • Can you say at what f number focus peaking becomes effective. I have heard that there is no focus peaking below f2 because the contrast is too low. This would negate the advantage of having focus ...
