Re: What would really make you unhappy?

Please don't:

1. Provide a big43 solution via an adapter for an m43 body which loses some light. There is a reason I lashed out all that cash on the f/2 lenses - it's f/2 and I want to keep it.

Re: Four Thirds lens compatibility - what's your preference?

It's hard to pick a good answer here, because as always the devil is in the detail. having both "big" and micro-4/3rds bodies I'm not too fused about which format it is. A good optical viewfinder is...

Re: Which flash?

I tried it last night and it appeared to work fine. There are some other reviews around which suggest that it is compatible and I don't think there is any risk of frying the electronics in either the...

Re: The Tree

I agree with you René, the subtle shades and limited colour palate work really well. There isn't really enough going on in the B&W, maybe a lighter treatment might bring it to life.

Re: Dynamic range versus shadow / highlight control

It looks to me as though the clipping indicators are woking from the JPEG. I had a shot with burnt-out highlights and the clipping indicator blinked nicely in red to warn me. In the camera JPEG there...

Re: E-3 weatherproofing with 50-200+EC14

I'm very pleased with the 50-200SWD + EC-14 for rugby, as long as there is enough light to shoot at f/4.9 (which is wide open at the long end). I habitually use it wide open and - for this kind of...

Re: E-3 weatherproofing with 50-200+EC14

Not as far as I know. I've used the combo for rugby for some time. We've been lucky and had any REALLY foul days in the last few seasons, but we've had rain and it's never been a problem. I always...

Another good place to look for adapters in the UK is SRB-Griturn - http://www.srb-griturn.com/ . They are good folks and very helpful if you ring them up.

Sounds like you may be fixed anyway, but...

Re: E-620 is

I've tried IS on the E-3 and E-5 and neither seems to work very well for me. If it was just one body I would put it down to a problem with that particular one, but since it's with both it looks more...

Re: Olympus T32 flash with E-system?

I have used a T32 on an E-1 without causing problems to either. You should be able to double-check by emailing Olympus support.

You won't get any TTL auto facilities, but you can use the T32's...

Re: E-620 + 12-60 vs em-5 +12-50

Not necessarily. One of the reasons m43 lenses can be smaller is that there is no need to provide enough back-focus distance (is that the right term? Distance from rear lens element to sensor) to fit...

Re: Raw or Jpeg on holiday?

Remember that you don't have to save the JPEGs at full size or top quality. The GF-1 offers options to save as large, medium or small - this only applies to the JPEGs, the raw files are still the...

Re: Lemmings, pre-ordering the OM-D E-M5

In my case, it is because the OM-D puts all the things I have been waiting for into one place.

I've been using a Panny GF-1 as a small carry-around for a couple of years and am very pleased with...

Re: 50-200mm SWD Reported Focal Length

My 50-200 SWD seems to report correctly. I usually use it with the EC-14 converter and at full stretch the EXIF reports it as 283mm, which is what it should be. I don't check very often, but I have...

Re: 50-200 swd with teleconverter
