Hi all,

When I try to perform a search on say a 14-54 or 35-100 lens the internal search engine always says there aren't any matches. I of course know they are plenty of matches so there must be a trick to successfully perform that type of search.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks...

Tom

Internal to what?

I use Clusty http://clusty.com/ and it spat out 7 pages of "hits". This is the input I used:
ZD 14-35mm f/2

I meant when I use the forum search function. Never heard of clusty.com before, thanks!

Try google search?
The built in search is getting better, but still has some issues.

Tony,

I also had the same problems finding specific content in the forums. But, have my own solution.

Rather than doing a general google search I have created a Custom Google Search Engine for Photography, with a high emphasis on the 4 thirds format. The site can be seen at http://fourthirdsnews.com/ (http://fourthirdsnews.com)

I have also syndicated content from some fourthirds sites so that I can have the latest news all in one place and easily accessible (more sites to come).

It is mainly for my own use, but it may help out others as well.
