Wow! Photos of Brian Jones by a swimming pool? Creepy. Four years before...
mrbonsai: Can anyone tell me what the shutter lag is for the M-1 is?I have been searching but can't find this information.Thanks in advance.
An Olympus sales rep calculated that the lag time is equivalent to the time it takes light to travel 33 inches! He told me the actual lag time in fractions of a second but I don't remember the number - sorry. The 33 inches did stick in my head however. :-)
Marty4650: You just can't please everyone.
If Olympus had made this a cheap lens... made from plastic, with a maximum aperture of f/2.8, then everyone would be complaining saying "I would gladly pay more for a much better lens."
But instead they decided to build a high quality lens, so now they will complain that "it costs too much."
You simply cannot buy high quality optics at bargain basement prices.No one has them. Not Canon, not Nikon, nor Pentax or Sony.
Incidentally, Leica will be happy to sell you a 75mm f/2.0 lens for $3800, and it still won't autofocus.
Well put Marty.
