    Chit Chat Re: where did everybody go!

    As the 4/3 lenses are larger than their m4/3 counterparts I assume they gather more light, and if this is true would it result in a higher DR or more resolving power?
    For example I was wondering if...

    Chit Chat Re: where did everybody go!

    I know what you mean. I am considering getting an em1 mkii, probably used from BH, as a resolution and DR upgrade from my e5, but mainly because of the body size for travelling. I also like the idea...

    Other Accessories Re: Filter vignetting

    Thanks Rich. The holder arrived today and is a partial success in that the vignetting starts at 18mm, and it is small enough to be cropped out. So I am well pleased given the price.

    Hi Wigpro

    Yes, things are petty quiet here nowadays. I look in now and again. Zippski made a rare appearance a while back.

    Lens Topics Lens calibration

    I just watched a video on BH on phase v contrast AF.
    The suggestion seems to be that lens calibration is only necessary for phase AF.
    Is this right, and if so will any lens calibrations be ignored...

    Other Accessories Replacement BLM-5

    I bought an Olympus BLM-5 off Amazon, and it does not hold charge. I suspect that it is old stock as Olympus probably don't make it anymore.
    Anyone have third party recommendations?

    Solved it!

    Menu-cogs-AF/MF-Set Home
    There you can choose which AF size is available.
    Simple really :)
