  • (on the MkI) didn't lose it, but had been cracked for a year or so, finally let go.  (fortunately I ordered an extra a while back) Was at a flower show w my dad last weekend and I spotted an ...
  • Replied in Unfortunately
    This happens all too frequently w Olympus FW updates.  Any misstep can have an unhappy outcome. Basically, the camera needs the lens FW to 'see' the lens, and can not update or fix the FW if it ...
  • I believe, by definition, Bulb is a manual exposure- you time it and hit the shutter button (or remote) a second time when you want to close the shutter (or when the camera hits a maximum time).  ...

    OK, --.-- indicates no communication between camera and lens, but no image indicates the locking pin is depressed.  you can see the effect if you press the lens release button while the camera is ...
  • Replied in The OM-4
    Really loved that camera, but since getting the 2100UZ, it hadn't gotten much use. Factors that led to choosing the E-500 were familiar handling and ability to mount my OM lenses.  Of course, I ...

  • Replied in I'll try closing
    Been a while... didn't even think I still had the PW or I would have tried sooner. Closing now... (if I do it right??)
  • Instead of wondering if m43 will work for you, asking opinions of others, why not rent or borrow an E-M1 for a week and see how you get on w it. Yes, there are other models out there, and you can ...

  • 75-300  has a size advantage 100-300- slightly faster aperture. I have the 100-300... when I got it, it was half the price, but given a similar price I'd go w the 75-300 just for the smaller size. ...
