About me:

I use an Olympus E-510 with the 14-42 and 40-150 kit lenses. I also have the 70-300 and 9-18 lenses. I use the EX-25 extention tube for close focusing. Next will probably be the 50mm f2.0 and the ec-14 (Scored both of these for $450 in excellent shape, whoopee!). I have an old Minlota X-700 film SLR with lots of nice MD series lenses so plan to get an adaper to use those with my E-510. I also still use an Olympus SP-500UZ. Waiting to see what the pro micro 4/3 body will be like if it ever comes about. I recently added the E-30 to my system along with the 12-60, 50-200, 8mm and 35mm lenses as well as the grip and another FL-36R flash. Another addition - Oly 11-22 and Sigma 24mm f1.8.

  • Your experience using 4/3 lenses is very encouraging. I have a nice collection of standard grade and high grade 4/3 lenses and am still using mainly the E-30 and sometimes the old E-510. I handled ...
  • The 12-60SWD and 50-200SWD also have the mechanical focus capability.
  • Does anyone else wish there was a water, dust and freeze resistant version of the Pen F? Maybe call it the Pen FT? Maybe include the PDAF enabled sensor? I would be up for a two camera system with ...
  • Replied in Tom
    Have you actually seen any reliable or otherwise rumors about improved pdaf? I have not. I have not even seen any mention that any pdaf will be included. Could EM-1 mark I be the last camera that ...
