Re: 300mm f4 no longer available

Just had a quick look at Wex. They are listing the 300/4 at £1,649, but "awaiting stock", as are quite a few of the posh Oly lenses. As far as I can see there is no sign of the 45/1.2.

Off-topic -...

Re: 300mm f4 no longer available

Wex were doing all sorts of odd things with prices last week. I decided to get an FL-700WR through the local LCE, their offer price was £269. I mentioned in passing that Wex had it at £229 and to my...

Re: 300mm f4 no longer available

How strange. Oly's own website still lists it, with a price. LCE list it as in stock, with a rather more attractive price.

Re: Winter Wonderland

Gorgeous - but my goodness, cold! Love the broad sweep of the valley turned almost monochrome by the frost.

Re: Old om2 user

Some drool-worthy kit there, OM!

There was a doc on TV a while back about a "society photographer" from Scotland who used to pap people in Knightsbridge. Dougie somebody, I think. It looked as...

Re: Old om2 user

Yes it does, as do the fancy T-series macro flashes etc. No TTL exposure control though, I think - but the flash's own Auto mode should still work OK.

Re: Lens roadmap due

The main cause of my bafflement is that we already have the 12-40 f/2.8, which is a lovely lens. Going to 45 rather than 40 doesn't look like much of a bonus, certainly not enough to justify...

Re: Lens roadmap due

I wonder what the point is of the 12-45 f/4. I suppose it must be really small to make it worth doing, unless it has some extra kind of fairy dust.

Re: My X-perience with the E-M1X

It's a fairly recent addition so probably not in the standalone version. In Lightroom Classic CC (the subscription version of the standalone desktop program) it is in the "Presence" section,...

Thanks OM, that sounds like pretty much my understanding. Of course, the radio bit is like a telephone, in that if you only have one it is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. But if you want a...

Re: New Flash system

Has anybody tried using the new system? I have been thinking about getting a newer flash, mainly prompted by the occasional desire to shoot in the rain. The FL-50s and friends terrify me if there is...

Interesting Dave, is it a composite or a single shot of something weird?

Re: Day 10, got me days mixed up. East Beach gangway, Shoeburyness.

Love the muted colours in this one, the treatment suits the subject perfectly.

Re: Picture trail

I think they do - they can run around and have the occasional cuddle to keep warm. It was horrible - blowing a gale, freezing cold, and the rain was lashing across rather than down. It was so dark I...

Re: Election Vote

Thanks for clarifying, I didn't know that. I am not sure whether it is a good or bad idea overall. Probably, like a rather too many things, it's a good idea which is open to abuse by people with bad...

Re: Itís all Greek to me!

Cursive is just crazy! Trying to learn all that plus a grammar and vocab that are significantly different from any other language I know is quite a challenge for an ageing brain.

Re: Itís all Greek to me!

Russian did import a few letters from Greek to augment the earlier Cyrillic alphabet. I'm not sure exactly which ones, but the modern Russian F, G and P certainly look similar to their Greek...
