    Rick_D replied to a thread Camera Topics What is a good upgrade from E-30? in Discussion
    If you want to stay with the E-series, I'd limit your choices to a second E-30 (hard to find), E-620 (cheap) or E-5 (not cheap). I would definitely...

    Rick_D replied to a thread Camera Topics What is a good upgrade from E-30? in Discussion
    E-5 is a step forward, as it's better in a hundred small ways, just nothing dramatic. Specific to IQ, you'll get more detail, less noise and greater...

    Not sure I follow--are you asking for failed photos? I tend not to keep those. Cheers, Rick

    Unacceptable loss of detail. http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympuse510/18 To put it in perspective, my LX3 can shoot cleanly at higher ISOs...

    My ISO progression has gone something like this: -E-510, keep it at and below 400 or expect a big, hot mess. -E-30, use it up to 800 provided you...

    Rick_D replied to a thread Camera Topics Slow learner? in Discussion
    Rather than the dramatic jump between the 510 and 30, the E-5 subtly improves on the E-30. What you will notice is in dim light, the viewfinder is...

    Rick_D replied to a thread Camera Topics Slow learner? in Discussion
    Do you ever plan on doing two-camera shoots? If so, keep the E-30 and dump the 510. I had those two bodies and basically never used the 510, then...

    Rick_D replied to a thread Lens Topics ED vs SWD Question in Discussion
    Will just add that the EC14 is certainly worth adding to the 50-200. You achieve a 283mm reach that is still quite sharp--definitely better than...

    Rick_D replied to a thread Lens Topics ED vs SWD Question in Discussion
    Correct. Either focus tech version will work. SWD will be faster, all other things being equal--only the 50-200 was made in both types. SWD also has...

    Hi Jim, That is precisely what happened to mine, as described in my earlier post: one of the lens' hood bayonet lugs has sheared off. In my case...

    Rick_D replied to a thread Camera Topics EM1 meter and 150MM Lens hood questions in Discussion
    If the lens is intact (and that's the best news) then it may be the hood has undetected damage. It should click noticably into place, both when in...

    Check the 150's hood bayonet lugs on the lens itself. Somewhere along the way I broke one off so have effectively two left (or is it three? don't...

    Having the better finder, 1/8000 shutter and IBIS makes the E-3 an easy choice in my book. Only possible shortcoming is no mode dial, which takes...
