  • Final update  - Olympus replaced the broken one with a brand new MMF-3 for $84 Canadian. Fair deal I'd say.  NEXT time I won't spend $30 in postage to get the old one into the Oly repair facility ...
  • Fuji just announced a medium format offering and no one is complaining they are abandoning their XT-3 line. I still think oly will corner the market on small and  light and quality to their ...
  • Let them go APSC and compete directly with Fuji.  Meantime I believe that Oly will be not only the best, but the only truly professional quality system that is small and light weight.  That’s the ...
  • I just sent my bent MMF-3 to Oly for a flat rate repair at USD54.
  • I was using the 12-60 so not a long heavy tele, and the MMF3 is an oly product, not a cheap knock off.  I suspect Goblin is correct  it must have been  bent inadvertently. on the bright side, oly ...
  • My quick tour - Shadow recovery has been vastly improved and is worth the price of admission alone. Highlight recovery is significantly improved - I still have to test it against my prior ...
  • Definitely not counterfeit - I bought it directly from Olympus. No trauma either... no drops or bumps.
  • Created discussion thread How does an MMF-3 adapter get bent?
    My 12-60 wouldn't focus at infinity... The last time it happened the lens mount plate on ten EM1-1 was loose and all I had to do was tighten the screws. This time, all screws on the camera lens ...
  • And weight - it’s a bag I can carry all day.
  • I switched a year ago. It is a great program and getting better all the time. They had 3 major free updates last year. The new version X4 is due out soon. Free trial is available. Look at their ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Strength in tradition
    Taken at the Mill Race Festival, 2017, in Cambridge Ontario. I do no know her name, but she was a powerful and very photogenic performer. If anyone can identify her, please let me know... she deserves the exposure.

  • Replied in 4/3 strategy
    I still have mine and I never use it  but I still use my my older e510. When I look back at my e30 shots I see just how much I struggled with resolution and noise.
  • Just as an exercise I tried to make up a light long kit with Sony products...  can’t be done. You’re OK on the normal to wider end, but there is nothing even close to the Oly 75-300, or PanLeica ...
  • If this video is what got you thinking, there are lots of people who think they are full of baloney.
  • Glen, for once I disagree with you.  It’s not sensor manufacture that is the issue, but image circle and lens design.  As mft sensors rival ff the size and weight of the whole kit become deciding ...
  • I used it for years. It is a very capable all in one solution... RAW editing, pixel editing with layers and plugins, and a decent catalogue. Highly recommended.  I did switch to Exposure X3 ...
  • Hmmm   I’ve tested different copies of the same lens in the store and twice found clear winners before purchase. Yes in real use you’ll know, but try before you buy helps deal with sample variation.
