    Camera Topics Re: Just pre-ordered the E-M1

    I'm interested to see what you have to say. Don't have the expendable funds right now for the new body but it'll likely be on my list. My 150 f/2 and my newly repaired 50-200 SWD would like a better...
  3. Astronomy Re: Can anyone give me some pointers on taking pictures of stars?

    Thanks, he has some amazing stuff on there. I definitely need to bring down my exposure time a bit... maybe kick it up to ISO 400 and do 30 second exposures with less time in between. I was using the...
  4. Astronomy Re: Can anyone give me some pointers on taking pictures of stars?

    Tried some star trails last night. E-620 w/ cheap timer remote, 21 5 minute exposures at ISO 100 f/5.6 with 85 seconds in between exposures (should have made that a smaller interval but I didn't...
  5. Camera Topics Re: How long to keep camera after replacement is bought?

    I'm a hoarder - that said, I'll gladly sell my 620 if/when I obtain the notional E-7.

  8. Astronomy Re: Can anyone give me some pointers on taking pictures of stars?

    I think part of it was that I idiotically mounted the camera on the tripod on the mounting point on the grip... instead of on the 150 f/2's tripod ring. It was windy enough that the grip was probably...

    I was out trying to take pictures of stars tonight (we have a great location, no cities nearby, very little artificial light) but I was having no success. I was using my E-3 with the 150mm f/2 with...

    Lens Topics Refurb lens warranty card

    I was planning on getting the extended warranty for my refurbed 150mm f/2 which is approaching 90 days since purchase, however since Olympus is particular about having all the documentation I was...
  11. Chit Chat Re: Used ZD Lens Value Drop, But Another Positive Note

    It's common sense, really. With the lack of newer 4/3rds non-pro bodies, fewer people are looking for lower-end lenses. I doubt SHG prices will be falling much - they're pretty much where they've...

    I've used extended warranties twice. Once on my E-3 (mentioned above) and once on a computer motherboard that got taken out when my power supply blew up (the power supply was also under warranty but...
  13. Lens Topics Re: Another great deal (maybe) on a 150mm here..........

    I struggled with the same thing. I'm trying to save for a very expensive shotgun I want to buy next summer and buying the 90-250 would make that more difficult.
  14. Lens Topics Best place to find the extended Oly lens warranty?

    I just pulled the trigger on a 150f/2 refurb and may want to get the extended warranty - with the refurb I believe it has to be purchased within 90 days of lens purchase. Any advice on where to find...

    Cameta is a big Olympus refurb dealer, I think they get them regularly.
  17. Lens Topics Re: Another great deal (maybe) on a 150mm here..........

    I for one thank you. Although when I woke up at 0500 to see what the price was 30 minutes before it closed it was too high for my tastes.

    Lens Topics Re: 150mm f/2 with EC-20

    I realize that it'll be fairly short, but I simply can't justify the 90-250 or the 300. My goal is just to get a little bit more reach than I have now - I'm not a hardcore wildlife shooter by any...

    I'm taking most of my shots wide open, especially the bird shots.

    The location is the British Indian Ocean Territory.

    Lens Topics Re: 150mm f/2 with EC-20

    Thanks for the input so far. Is the EC-20 sealed? I was pretty sure the EC-14 was but didn't know about the EC-20 as I've never actually seen or held one.

    Lens Topics Re: New 60mm f2.8 macro lens for uFT

    Is it an internal focusing mechanism or does the length change? I love my Sigma 105 but it's 1) a little long and 2) when I focus I sometimes bump it into the patient's face.

    No, I think dpreview actually had a news item about it months ago when they announced the EM-5. They had pictures of the lens as well.
