  • Susan, I wouldn't be so upset until you have established any faults. My suggestion is to run the lens through its paces. If there are no rattles, the aperture moves smoothly, no visible signs of ...
  • Good set of photos of some cars from yesteryear. The old dash with the on/off switches is a great reminder of the times in which everything was simple and easy to fix should anything go wrong. Chee ...

    I'm sure we who responded to your original request would like to know the outcome. Did you have any luck in fixing your problem? If so what did you do? Cheers, John.
  • I look forward to your presence here once more on a regular basis. Now that a lot of angst has gone from this forum it is a much nicer and friendlier place to be, hope for all our sakes it can ...

    Hope you enjoyed your recent road trip and that the New Year brings you and yours all the positives you seek. Thanks also for responding to my very late entry. It was a bit of a fluke that I ...
  • Replied in Charles.
    I couldn't agree more with what you have said. I am also a firm believer that one should only act on the advice of those who know more about this subject than you do. There are many instances both ...
  • A peaceful little creek discovered in "Beenak Park" at a place called Gembrook. HAPPY NEW YEAR to all. Cheers, John
  • I had this problem some 3 to 4 years ago. The fix was for Olympus to replace a small round piece of plastic below the dial because the lugs that engagaed with the dial were broken and the mode ...
  • I also have an E1 and quite often use it in conjunction with a number of OM lenses and am generally pretty happy with the results. But having said that I don't believe any of my OM's are as sharp ...
  • That's a great outcome for you Darrell and at the right time of year too. The spirit of Santa is well and truly with you, hope you enjoy once more and for many years to come the output from ...
  • I think you maybe right on the money, the 'gremlins' are out in force and certainly on the attack. With the problem now fixed, they're probably just taking a break over the Christmas period. ...
  • The reason for the move is obvious, what a great looking little guy you must be so proud. Sorry to hear your health issues are still debilitating, I hope you and your family enjoy the time ...

    Thanks for your suggestion, but it seems the program was running in compatability mode, so that now is corrected and everything is again working fine. Enjoy the Festive season and don't go getting ...
  • Created discussions Access to the OTF page------
    When clicking on the index "Forums" the OTF page is obstructed by "The New Camera Reviews page" so now it seems necessary to hi light the forums page and scroll down all the various forums to ...
  • You captured the moment beautifully Byron. The 40-150 being a "Kit" lens represents great value, its output is quite stunning in capable hands, such as yours, well done indeed. Merry X'mas John.
  • A real beauty it is Lucy, lovely to see. Trust you are well. Cheers, John
  • Hi Steve, Why not use the word Current ie. Current Garden & Flower Thread, week commencing Nov 26th. FWIW, John.
  • Sure its not the 7-14mm but at a third the price it still does a credible job, at all apertures down to F11. Enjoy your new lens. Cheers, John. Kilcunda Surf Beach, Victoria, Australia.

    I was amazed that you didn't make contact after the last test series;-) you are well aware of the saying that winners are:-D what a humiliationn, talk about the tide turning, 'annnnnd', Steve ...
  • Replied in Marn (Marion)
    So sad to hear of the recent passing of Marion (Marn) a long time contributing member of the "Oly Forum". Today my thoughts are with her family, such a sad occasion for all losing a loved one. I'll ...
