  • Olympus and Panasonic collaborate in the same way that shopkeepers collaborate on a towns high street. They benefit from the system footfall, but ultimately fight to attract customers into their shop.
  • I’ve been through a lot of M43s Kit the last couple of years, including just now the E-M1 Mk2. I also own or have owned a lot of Oly Pro lenses. The M43s body that has impressed me the most is the ...
  • I’ve tried a Kenko 1.4 MC DGX on my FT-1 and although it fits, it’s tight and the back of the TC just fouls the internal face of the FT-1. My Kenko makes the Nikon 300mm f4 I use with the FT-1 make ...
  • I spend a lot of time photographing fast low level jets as well as birds in flight, and the general consensus I’ve arrived at (along with the guys I shoot with, whatever the system) is that ...
  • I went for one of the ‘Cyber Week’ V3 kits on Monday, but got an email today to say they’ve run out of 10-30 PD lenses. Theyve offered the option of a cancellation or to proceed with a standard ...
  • I found S-AF a bit strange on both 4/3rds lenses I owned. It was generally accurate, but if I set the frame rate to H, the camera would take one picture then pause for a while before machine ...
  • On my em-1 Mk2, the 150 f2 and 50-200 SWD achieved about 3-4 FPS max with C-AF, so noticeably slower than native m43s lenses.
  • Some great shots there, right up my street! Thanks for sharing.
  • The weather sealing (or lack of) is an issue that is raised often these days. Its almost like people have forgotten about waterproof lens and camera body covers that were the normal solution to ...
  • I had a copy of this lens until very recently, and one of the things I noticed was that there was some movement in the barrel at max extension. As others have said, it didn’t seem to negatively ...
  • Replied in 200mm f/2.8
    Well, I’ll be very interested in such a lens. A 200mm f/2.8, 280mm f/4.0 with 1.4x TC or 400mm f/5.6 with 2.0 TC would be fab, assuming the image quality was there. I’m quite addicted to my adapted ...
  • Strictly speaking, the Culdrose aircraft are Sea Harriers, and pre-dated the disposal? The Harrier GR7-9a, and the ones they were upgrading to T12s, constituted the flying fleet when they were cut ...
  • Some cracking shots as ever Trevor! On the subject of Harrier disposal, India did want to buy our fleet, but it was blocked by the US on the basis that the cockpit technology was their IP and ...
  • Replied in Olympus hoods
    I’ve got a JJC sliding hood for my Oly 60mm Micro lens, a third of the price and works just fine. The 40-150 Pro hood is a good design, but a fair few people have had it fall apart in use. Mine was ...
  • Lovely set of images! I’ve recently acquired a Panasonic 100-300 II, after a run of disappointing Oly 75-300 lenses (I tried 3, and they all went back). My main birding lens now is a Canon 400 f5.6 ...
  • Not much to add to what everybody else has said, but feel compelled to say that these look fantastic! Well done on some inspiring work!
  • Replied in Olympus MMF-3
    I’ve been using it with the 50/200 and 150 f2, the only noticeable wobble is from the extending barrel on the 50-200, the adaptor itself has no play relative to the camera lens mount. So, yes, ...
  • Replied in Olympus MMF-3
    I’ve recently got a Fotga AF adaptor from Amazon, £22.99, works exactly the same as the Olympus MMF-3. No wobble either!
  • Thank you Roger. I’m heading off out again later this week, so will see what comes out of it.
  • I’ve never tried the Panasonic 100-300, but I may yet as it would be good to get something lighter to carry around on a walk rather than going out for a photo session. I’ve tried three versions of ...
