On Photokina 2014: Olympus stand report article (75 comments in total)

Visited Photokina on Thursday 18th, with the one purpose to talk to the Olympus tech people about the problem of the indeletable color blothes that sunshine exposure into the EVF will cause in the EVF optics if the diopter wheel is set to a high positive number .
The head of tech Support in their "first-aid boot" , a gentleman from Japan,
acknowledged that they know about the problem (which is known to have affected both the E-M1 and the E-M10 top models), but that there is no solution yet .
I gave him printouts of the DPR micro four thirds forum threads dealing with the issue, as well as a few other threads in Germany.
They promissed to look into the issue .
here is the list of DPR threads dealing with this :

You raise and shine with your double win ! Again some beautiful examples of what can be done with reversed lenses, and a fascinating insight into the world of insects. Congratulations !

On leaping polar bear in the LEAP challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

summicron: Thx, as always Ruth, for your thoughtful comment!
It was indeed amazing watching these guys not only hop from berg to berg, but also swim with ease.

..that they can swim was clear, even submerge in pursuit of whatever prey is at paw ... but such leaps ? this was new to me, and it's your absolute merit to have published it. Congratulations to a spectacular and very beautiful image !

On How the West was won in the Past or Future challenge (2 comments in total)

Congrats to yet another (double) spectacular old steamhorse win! Fantastic colors here .
Btw, were these old tracks really double ? I allways thought it was one single track back then, with the train using it either eastt or west bound ?

On REPTILE in the A To Z - Letter R challenge (7 comments in total)

Great shot... by the way, I believe that the reverse lens setting is a matter of do or die as far as focus spot is concerned -actually a matter of a millimeter or so- it needs great skill to capture the right spot/moment. Congrats !
