  • Those "Galahs" are really cute. One of my Brother's rescued one sometime back and it became his household pet. They become very possessive and can be pretty nasty if they think you are occupying ...
  • Kyle, You might like to consider the 70-300mm lens which provides you with both telephoto and macro capability. Look around I think you'll find one at a reasonable price. John
  • The P&S Olympus C 8080 was a beautifully built camera with an exceptional zoom lens capable of producing fabulous J'peg images from its Kodak sensor. It had a flip screen also. I still have mine ...
  • I have this lens also and use it occasionally on my EM1. I find it hunts a little sometimes but overall performs pretty well. It is bulky by comparison to the current M 4/3 version and for me ...
