  • I Like your photos. The E1 is still a great photographic tool even now that it enjoys "Vintage Status", don't use either of mine anywhere nearly enough, seem to have the EM1 welded into my hand, a ...
  • Google "Fotga" readily available on Ebay at a very competitive price. Check any reviews too. Cheers, John.
  • Replied in Wow.
    Hi Wayne, Your new lens is serving you well. JK and I visited Healesville some time back and I can recall one of these honeyeaters in a cage on its own down in an area where the Brolgas were. There ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hi Theresa, Long time no see hope you are well. Biofos has an article on how to setup and configure the E3 with recommendations on their website. Probably similar to Wrotniak. Maybe worthy of a visit.
  • Replied in Many.
    Those carrying the Olympus 4/3 brand are all there to be seen on Olympus' web-site and in all different specs. John
  • Your photos speak louder than simply words alone. John.
  • Replied in Olympus 9-18
    If its in "Top Nick" go for it. Its a good lens and should serve you well. John.
  • Replied in Pure Artistry.
  • Pixel Soldiers have served me well over a lengthy period at a reasonable cost. John.
  • It's status is legendary. I have 2 of them ,one of which is like brand new and hardly used. When my older version stops working I'll revert to the back up and use it on days where I think it is ...
  • I agree with your sentiments, and wish you well with your Fuji. Yours is a typical example of what I was trying to convey within my original post. Emails to Olympus re the dissatisfaction with QC ...
  • I think all we OMD users should report all QC issues to Olympus whether we intend fixing ourselves or sending in to be fixed. Our collective voice should have more impact in getting Oly's QC ...
  • Replied in 4/3 adapters
    You'll find it hard to compete with the genuine article which has the finest of tolerances ensuring a snug fit and proper electrical connection. More expensive yes but a perfect partner for your ...
  • Replied in Old vs. new
    That "OLD" E1 is still a great performer if the conditions are right to use low ISO settings  in good light, but it does fall short of some of the more recent developments from Olympus such as the ...
  • It's a pleasure to have been helpful to you both. John.
  • I think you will find them here OK
