How's Billy Green's E-3 doing...
The initial thread:
However, I'm sure that many of us want to know whether what he describes as an ongoing "horrible front-focus problem" with his E-3 has been satisfactorily resolved. He's a professional actor as well as a professional photographer, so didn't seem to have the time or energy left for some of the more complex and laborious ways of absolutely pin-pointing the problem that some helpfully suggested and demonstrated in the earlier thread. (IMHO, most such tests should be O's responsibility: they should supply a working camera!!)
Also, if memory serves, after some confusion, some logistical difficulties (likely in part because of Billy's grueling and atypical work schedule) and some incompetence, rudeness and outright denial, Olympus technical support did finally offer to have the camera shipped to them for inspection.
I hope that he has finally been able to do this, and also, that they supplied him with one of the three well-working E-3's they apparently had on hand so that he can continue to earn a living while they fix his.
I, for one, will not be buying the further Olympus E equipment until I hear that Billy Green's problems have been resolved.
