  • Replied in Time to bail
    I have  colleague who has just been diagnosed with gout and he's tee total !! It looks like tomatoes set his off so you may be safe to drink beer after all .
  • Replied in Iliah Borg
    Pretty much all lenses will be improved by a higher MP count. The better the lens the greater the improvement. It won't make any of them worse.
  • I think the issue with Olympus is not how the menus are organised but how the manual is organised. Trying to find out what an unfamiliar menu item actually does is usually an exercise in frustration. ...
  • Two to three years is NOT a long time to wait for most camera buyers. Especially considering Olympus  recently released new versions of the EM-1 and EM-5. It may be a long time to wait for many of ...
  • Replied in duplicate post
    There are 10 types of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't. Beware of Geeks bearing Gifs
  • Replied in I hear....
    Olympus plan to market a range of hair shirts to their users. They've been reading  DPReview  and think they'll recover their losses.
  • Equivalence is only relevant if you're comparing different formats. If you have one format with you when about to take a photograph why would you care about equivalence ? What you care about is ...
  • Replied in Fear mongering
    The way to preserve li-ion batteries is to keep them charged from around 40% to 80% capacity. Keeping them fully charged and keeping little charge in them causes them to deteriorate more rapidly. O ...
  • Ok, apologies, I thought he was saying that the quality would suffer.
  • 'Genuine' spare batteries are a licence to print money for the manufacturers. They are not going to start producing rubbish batteries and threaten that revenue stream. In addition it makes sense to ...
  • Jim, I realise that this is well away from the purpose of this thread but actually the population of this planet has never been in a better place overall. Since the 1970s over 90% of the population ...
  • The half-hearted AF solution was introduced the time they (effectively) went bankrupt and lack of money probably had a lot to do with what they came up with. Edit, Actually it was introduced  about ...
  • No, but as has been discussed on here many times, they look on the Imaging division as providing benefits to the medical division. It's almost a case of we'd have to spend much of this money anyway ...
  • "and I do understand that given the current status of the Olympus company, any expenditure must be scrutinized thoroughly." Perhaps you'd like to tell us about the current state of the Olympus ...
  • Under EU law you are allowed to return products bought online within two weeks. You should be able to evaluate a camera better at home than messing around in a shop. Obviously not suggesting you ...
  • Replied in Yes..
    because Pro equipment never breaks and all the  Pro repair services set up by the various brands sit twiddling their thumbs all day long.
  • I'm not sure I follow the logic of this thread. If Canon started using new manufacturing techniques such as moulded plastics back in the late 1970s it allowed them to create a greater variety of ...
  • Firstly, have you seen the exchange rate. The dollar is worth fluctuating around a range 75 pence to 85  pence. And yes, it is not just VAT. It is also higher minimum wages   employer National ...
  • Actually we do not get 'screwed'. We live in a country (like much of Europe) with higher welfare and  local services and hence higher taxes to pay for it. We also have things like higher minimum ...
  • It all depends what you mean by 'significantly improved' but this belief that sensors will continue to improve 'significantly' from an IQ point of view is highly unlikely. Basically, they haven't ...
