Hi guys, In May I will be in Portugal for a week and I really really want to see some wildlife. I am drawn to spiders, horses and birds of prey but of course any wildlife will make my week such a great adventure, I'm sure. There are many more animals I would love to see (i.e almost all African) but haven't had a chance yet. So if you know any places I should go to observe and photograph, please write some down. Will carry D700, 300mm, x1.4 and 105mm macro. Thanks a lot, Ran

I hit the magnification loop button twice to get into the magnified frame view mode with E-PL5. If I half-press the trigger button, before of auto-focusing, the E-PL5 switched back to normal non-magnified view, so it looks like that the AF is not available in the magnified frame view. This is different from what I see with my E-PM1 and E-M10 which can auto-focus while zoomed into the magnified frame. This is greatly improves accuracy with pinpoint x14 magnified zoomed AF box.  Are there...

I have been so used to using my lenses either wide open, or stopped down x1 1 1/2 stops. Doing landscapes, I obviously want more in focus than I would, say a portrait, so a smaller aperture like f/16-22 would be required. How do I get the right "focal point" to get as much as possible in focus? is this where using the hyperfocal distance comes in? If so, how does it work. Hope you can help.  --lee uk.There are old pilots, & there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots."I'm so...

So as an X1 -> X2 upgrader, while I still like the shooting experience of the Leica X 113 I'm feeling more and more it's redundant in my lineup. The X1 and 2 made sense as a fixed-lens compact: They could be slipped into a soft briefcase or at a pinch in a coat pocket that I didn't mind ruining the lines of. The X 113 on the other hand is basically the size of an M with a regular lens on it, it can only really go places that an M can. And while I still like the handling and it allows me to...

trying to find out if I can tell the mfg date of a Leica X1 by the serial number--I think it is on the lens..I have been looking for a good used X1, buy don't want a 5 year old one, too expensive to have work done when it goes bad.

Hey all! I'll begin a trip to Europe March next year and would like to know which camera should I choose down to 350 bucks. I've seen some Pana LF1, Canon S110, Olympus ZX2, Fuji X1, but I can't make my mind on those... I would need a rugged camera that could provide me the best possible pictures, either at landscapes and at night, since I'll be camping most of the time. Another point is that I'll be cycle touring, meaning that space is a important mather, so I've discarded bridge and super...

At present I have a 40D and 70D with 18-135 STM/50 1.8/85 1.8/70-200L 2.8 (non IS), with Lightroom 5, I mainly shoot sport/basketball as a hobby. Photos are used on local club/league web sites. In the last 6-8 months I have started to take a keen interest in wildlife photography, mammals and birds mainly. I would like to expand into this area, the main issue is reach of lens (far too much cropping) the options I am looking at are: Canon 300mm 2.8L IS Mk2 with x1.4 and x2 Extenders. 1DX and...

I'm going to start shooting a lot of high school and college sports (baseball and soccer mainly, sometimes football) and don't have the budget for an f.2.8 lens. I have to decide on a 400mm f.5.6 or a 300mm f.4, sometimes adding the x1.4 III extender to the latter. Most of the time I'll be shooting with daylight but I'll also have some night games, specifically soccer. What would you recommend in terms of sharpness (very important to me) and focusing accuracy and speed? I'm shooting with a 1DX.

I want to add focal range to my kit, right now my 35-100 f/2.8 is the longest lens aside from a legacy 135mm f/2.8.  I am looking at the well regarded FT50-200/2.8-3.5, using a mmf3 to preserve the weather seal for use on EM-5.  As opposed to opting for a FT teleconverter for use with only one lens, if /or when there is a native teleconverter for the MFT would it be possible to use it in conjunction with adapted lens as well as the faster native lens? thanks in advance for any input, I am...

Does anyone know any other extension tubes which allow the use of SDM-AF, correct metadata and normal screwdrive AF other than the Kenko 25mm? I am quite pleased with the combination of DA*300mm F4 + Kenko 25mm extension tube + HD TC x1,4. It gives a 1:2.3 maximum magnification at a MFD of 125cm. The magnification is more than good enough for 80% of my macro uses. The image quality is outstanding (everyone knows what the DA*300 is capable of). And the distance you can keep to your subjects is...
