    Re: Olympus/Zuiko 70 to 300mm

    I found the the 70-300 (mounted on an E-620) was too much for my Gorillapod 'SLR', but it is usable on a fairly cheap ($40 or so) tripod from K-mart. It's really not that heavy! Off the tripod (and...

    Re: Olympus E-P2 hands-on preview

    The only person I know who uses the Nikon lens didn't have to pay for it. Everyone else I know with a superzoom uses Tamron or Sigma - which cost (over here in the US) about half as much as the...

    Re: Olympus E-P2 hands-on preview

    I hope not - that is (at least partly) why the 14-140 is so ludicrously priced. A 14-150 w/o lens IS and w/o the video optimisation would be a lot cheaper, and therefore a lot more saleable.

    Re: Any Colour You Like?

    I'm not normally a great fan of B&W, but I actually like it here. Somehow, the flatness just works for me (I'm on a Mac, so it might partly be the different gamma of my monitor) - it certainly seems...

    Well, this is my first entry to the FTU saloon. 60s exposure at f/3.5. The bulb encased in the clear box...

    HELP! Re: Funny AF triggering

    I can reproduce it with the 14-42 as well, although I have to try harder (pointing it at something within the closest focus range generally works!)

    HELP! Re: Funny AF triggering

    I've done some testing now - this is quite easy to reproduce with the 70-300 by focussing it to infinity then full-clicking on a nearby object (or vice-versa). Obviously the moral is not to fully...

    Re: live view AF points?

    Yes, you choose it in exactly the same way. In fact, it seems to inherit the setting you have in normal view. Note that face detection focussing only works if you have all the points active -...

    HELP! Re: Funny AF triggering

    I've had this happen a couple of times, so you're not alone. I assume that once the shutter button is fully depressed, the camera takes a photo as soon as it can get a focus lock (unless release...

    Re: owners manual...uhhhhh

    One thing I've done is to set up the camera with anti-shock and other settings for tripod use and saved that as 'custom reset 2'. I've then saved my ordinary settings in 'custom reset 1', thus...

    Re: its at home

    3.5 hours to charge (which seems remarkably accurate), and you should be home just as it's ready to go! Sounds much better planned than I managed last Friday - the battery finished charging at about...

    Re: Big decision - ditch 4/3?

    I had understood that Oly planned firmware upgrades for both of these lenses so they would work with 'Imager AF' and m43 cameras. Unfortunately I can't remember where I saw this and whether it was a...
