    The boredom of this continual negativity is nauseating. JB
  • The E1 may not have all the features of the newer M4/3 models, but as sure as God made little apples it is still a very capable photographic tool. The combo of E1 and 14/54 is hard to toss in the ...
  • Replied in This may help.
    This may help, I had a similar problem some time ago with my E30. I removed the eye piece and put a single very narrow strip of masking tape along the vertical edges--It has never come adrift ...
