  • Here we go. In italics my reply to Olympus America's first positive response to my inquiry as to whether they could service the lens. In bold, their reply. It is still not entirely clear whether ...
  • Goblin is correct. I just received a very quick and fulsome reply from Olympus USA. It is quite complicated as all transactions have to be through someone in the US. I replied asking confirmation ...
  • Hi Phocal. Thanks for your input and the link. I have tried that link before. The form will not work for me. Because I am not in the US, my details mean the form is not accepted. After ages of ...
  • As it is now, in MF mode it is still by wire. - as you turn the focus ring slowly the focus moves forward and backward in little hops. You can hear the light buzz as it jumps, so it is still ...
  • In fact, the lens has not been dumped yet. The NZ repair agent has given me the choice of confirming in writing before they would dump it, or they will return the lens free of charge. My headstrong ...
  • A month ago, I replied to another thread here regarding the purchase of a 150mm f2. My favourite lens ever, and my response reflected this. Until now. The last time I used it, it was working ...
  • Replied in 150 mm f2
    I have the 150f2 and the 40-150f2.8. They are both excellent lenses, but particularly for m4/3 I would think the zoom would suit most people. However, if you can put up with the weight and medium ...
  • A year ago I bought 2 Wasabi batteries for my D500. They both appeared to charge and work normally, up to around 60 images. At that point they were fully discharged. I emailed Blue Nook, and they ...
  • It looks a nice program, but doesn't support my Nikon D500 or J5. Surprising. Can't be bothered messing with PNG.
  • Strange logic and doesn't make any sense to me at all. One did not exist in 2016, so that date is irrelevant.
    If I was comparing them to buy today, today's comparison is all that counts!
    Good...

  • I'm not sure there are any ways of stopping idiots.
    In this same general region there is the foot of a live glacier, a high ciff of rock and ice roped off from the bus park with a notice warning...

  • Replied in Mowgli
    J5 and 10mm f2.8. My apology, a cat photo. Mowgli, touted to us as bomb proof, and so he is. His first action upon arrival, was to unleash with both paws like Mike Tyson upon our labradors chin. ...
  • A beautifully crafted series of moments in a very different place. My 2 favourites are the view looking down upon the women and their food dishes, and the portrait of the boy. Wonderful lighting in...

  • Thanks for being patient with me Judas, I will check it out. LATER: you are correct about the 2 manuals Judas, thanks.It is odd that the lesser manual is more fully descriptive than the larger one ...
  • No, not at all. From my Nikon 1 J5 Reference Manual - page 53 is about movies page 73 is describing Bulb Exposure Index Continuous describes the basic function of each focus mode only page 134 ...
  • Except the J5 handbook does not tell you :)
  • My impression is that it is not as good a performer as the 4-3 EC-14, which I found degraded very little from my 50-200 or 150 f2 images. The MC-14 I don't much use because I feel it degrades the ...
  • Oh!  Thanks so much for your help :) Don
  • Created discussion thread J5 - How to set 5fps?
    I see everywhere that 5fps continuous shooting is an option. My menu options start at 10fps. I can't find reference how to set 5fps in the manual. Does anyone know please? Thanks. Don
  • I received mine from the Korean vendor, free freight. Only took 4 days to New Zealand and I couldn't be happier. It sits very nicely in my D500 bag, without losing much in comparison, other than ...
