  • Your welcome, glad I could help and as far as feeling silly, don't.  If I had a dollar for every time I got thrown for a bit because a dial got moved accidently I could buy a Leica. As far as ...
  • You appear to be in Creative Mode - sunshine.  Switch to another mode, PAS or M.  And see if doesn't disappear and go back to normal.
  • Well the 100-400 has certainly given you plenty to gripe about, but really this one person crusade of yours is getting irritating.  But I guess thats what you want isn't it? Sheesh, I can't believe ...
  • OK, and here is another viewpoint where interchangeable lenses are germane.  I'm invested in MFT and happily so, however if I want 12mm f1.4 my best option is probably the new Pany prime.  It ...
  • I'm not at all disappointed with rapidly diminishing f1.4.   The fact that it has f1.4 is the important fact to me.  So in low light - worst case scenario is either crop in post or use my feet if ...
  • If the lens tests out to be very good and I hope it does I will be buying.  I shoot mostly in aperture priority so dial assignments or limitations thereof don't concern me.  I want small and ...
  • Thanks for doing the thread Martin, and the updates.   I started a thread about a month ago asking for recommendations since I hope to be in Iceland in September of next year so your thread is of ...
  • If it looks like I'll need a crowbar I'll just let the whole thing soak in a vat of WD40 overnight.  It is weather sealed after all.  That works for my frozen shoulder.  ;-)
  • Goodness gracious Tom, how soon we forget.  You must remember the real reason the GX8 isn't selling well.  No, I'm not talking about how it didn't even warrant a review here until almost a year ...
  • Replied in LX10
    I sold my LX7 quite a while ago (mainly because of too much noise at higher ISO but I loved it in good light), and I still have a pang of regret every now and then. Excellent build, lens, features ...
  • Well, mine does sharpen up a bit when stopped down but I consider images at 100mm f2.8 to be just fine.  It seems to me that most lenses are sharper when stopped down from wide open and I hardly ...
  • If you have piece of very thin cleaning paper (designed to clean a lens without scratching), tear off a small piece - say 1/2 inch diameter. Lay it on the center of the lens and screw on your ...
  • Replied in Lonely Benches
  • I've survived enough motorcycle accidents for friends to claim I have an angel riding on my shoulder.  Well, that would be one shoulder, don't want to know whats on the other. :-( Sorry about that ...
  • A few days after I got my rather expensive Pany 100-400 this spring I was in the doorway of my garage taking some test shots.  At one point I removed the lens to put on another and safely popped ...
  • I don't use it myself - the only button I would like to lock out is the Disp button but that isn't possible.  However, I did set it up for use on my GM5 when my better half used it on her recent ...
  • Thank you both. Trevor -  yes, under the right conditions the background is smooth as butter.  It's rare in my woods to get a subject in direct sun such as these.  I'm glad I shoot Raw+jpg because ...
  • Created discussion thread The acrobat (fun with the 100-400)
    Considering the Black Capped Chickadee is my absolute favorite small bird it's high time I gave it a stage. Finally ready?  I can't hang here all day you know! Ok I'm jumping to the one above - try ...
  • Added 5 photos to their gallery

  • That drop of epoxy glue is a excellent idea.  I could do that on the front grip function button too I think - or maybe not, might hit it that one too often. Now, what I need is a drop of epoxy ...
