  • You can manually set the FL for IS the same as you would a OM lens.
  • Since Oly doesn't allow stacking accessories, you will have to git one of them and make it a pass through or lose functionality. We use to stack the EX 25 buy first outting the lens on and setting ...
  • Funny thing about the best glass is it takes effort to make it shine. Otherwise it will show your weakness very quickly.  The right settings, pinpoint focus and turn off the IS, old school is ...
  • Nice shots, the cormorants should be flying here too. I should know this weekend. The best I can offer is to back off of 200mm some and I think you will find it will track/ focus much better. I ...
  • Sounds like the E 330 to me. Oly doomed this fantastic little camera from the start with a $1200 price tag. The only feature you could really see was the live view and it is what drove the price up ...
  • Replied in Tube flash
    This is a post I did a while back on the tube flash. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/28743471 I'm not sure if it would work for you but seeing that it cost nothing, you might give it a try. I ...
  • I'd compare what it would take to get it fixed to the cost of a good used one. If it makes sense to get it fixed then do so and see how the results are on the EM-1 before deciding to sell for ...
  • Volts and amps appear to be the same, if the plug and polarity are it would seem the AC-3 is a less expensive version of the AC-3. The AC-1 has worked on the C-8080, E 300, E 3 and E 5 for me. Migh ...
  • Nice write up Stan. I'm glad my post inspired you to continue the discussion. Very nice shots. The reversed lens works well for you. I got to shoot over the weekend some. I've been changing the ...
  • Replied in The smallest gem
    I have a lot of glass, mostly HG and even one SHG. The lens I would have to replace immediately if mine was lost is the humble 35mm macro. I have it's big brother the 50mm and while it's a stunning ...
  • Very nice Conan. Hand held at that magnification is something to be appreciated.
  • Replied in Stunning
    I love being a early riser. People forget that the sun rise is as colorful as the sun set.
  • Tim The difference back then was some of us got great focusing with the E 3. I'm not talking like now where the EM 1 focuses just fine as long as you are a casual shooter but it's accepted that if ...
  • I have the money set aside that was to go towards a E 7, so I can afford the EM-1 and adapter. Unfortunately to get fast and low light focus, you need m4/3's lenses. Now it starts getting expensive. ...
  • I really wanted a E 7 and was miffed when they cancelled it.  Luckily the E 5 serves me well with only the higher dynamic range and maybe the extra resolution being attractive. To me, Oly has a ...
  • I was never all that thrilled with the 14-45 that came with the E 300, so I used the 8080 for the short end and the 40-150 for the longer. The 40-150 was surprisingly sharp for a kit lens and ...
  • Replied in Snow Flakes
    Very nice. Lately the flakes here haven't been very big or well formed. Did you need to crop at all for the final image?
  • I use a Olympus E 5 and a 35mm with a EC 20 to shoot flakes. The EC 20 doubles the magnification without cutting the working distance. Here is one of my threads in this forum. http://www.dpreview.c ...
  • Baiting, right or wrong has been around for a long time. I remember watching Mutual of Omaha and the amazing shots they got. It was decades later that I learned what they did to get them. Hopefully ...
  • Replied in Not peeved
    It was more disappointment and even that has passed. Even if there had been a E 7, there wasn't going to be any new lenses. Expanding my glass to fill my needs better will require a new system one ...
