    Re: Olympus E-400 Important Firmware Update Request

    this certainly is true & I subscribe wholehartedly to this petition ;-)

    last time (with E-400) it was Poland :D or more precisely, this forum:

    Re: Olympus have published new E? image

    I'd say that if it's true for the E-P1 (E-3, whatever) to be on the market in october (at least in small numbers for, say, at least reviewers and probably some pro photographers), the design of the...

    a friend of mine had a problem with his E-1: sometimes, the mirror stayed locked up and only came down again when he turned the camera off and on again; turned out that his camera had accumulated...

    Re: Steves Digicams E-510 Review

    I'd like to add:
    #4: it's great for focussing manual lenses, otherwise not too easy through the viewfinder
    #5: LiveView with an IR-filter on allows you to focus exactly on IR which otherwise would...
  6. Re: Interchangeable IR filter ......... sorry, not Olympus

    great review you've posted there, Alec ... so it is true, if you're not into sports and if you've got the money to spare then the Mamiya back would be the thing for you

    Re: Plastic Insert for Hotshoe

    Dave, they most certainly will fit perfectly - you even could use your Oly flashes (FL-36 & FL-50) with OM's, I did once but a friend of mine told me to be careful, probably either flash or OM-body...

    Re: Butterflies

    if you will have to shoot through glass, a polarizer would be handy to eliminate reflexes - although it "eats" light (which would hurt if there's already little to begin with)

    another option would...

    Re: using olympus e-1 with cannon lens

    you might try and convert your Canon FD lenses (if indeed they are FD) to FourThirds mount, Jorgen Bergfors postet this quite some time ago here in this forum (and it's now moved to the blog...

    Re: More E-510 vs 1D MKIII

    well, there definitely are focussing issues with the MkIII, this already is well known, and it will be fixed by Canon surely sometime, but then again that is not good enough for pros who will have to...

    Re: Hartblei tilt and shift lens

    dnproblem with this Hartblei seems to be that it's built for middle format: I'm not quite sure if it's really sharp enough on FourThirds (or crop 1,5x/1,6x) - really I think it's more apt for 24x36...

    YES, it is indeed possible to work with 1.51 (and do good work with it!), I really love what Studio 1.51 does with RAW, and yes, with additional manual setting of...
  14. Re: E-510 image stabilisation - technically evaluated

    Hi Rally,
    concerning this:

    you should consider that, as (seemingly) body IS does not work with manual lenses, such a test would not be possible for 800 mm with any FourThirds lens, at least not...

    Re: 43photo on site blogger

  16. Re: Who is interested in domestic US IR conversion? >

    yes, Alec, I already considered this option - and probably some day I'll make use of it

    thing is, as Jens already mentioned, that the filter is part of the optical path and to achieve focus, one...

  22. Re: how do you reduce effects of chromatic aberration?

    Hi Jens,
    I, too, am not troubled with the slight out-of-focus-CAs of the 7-14; I didn't notice them with the 50-200 yet, but now that you've put this in my head I might not be able to stop myself...

    I'm surprised by this statement because I own the Peleng and there are really only two things which I absolutely don't like:
    - it is quite soft, softer than any Zuiko I own (including the OM's)
    -...
