Quote: I sometimes accidentally hit that little button on the right side of the viewfinder that selects the monitor on and off. The first time it happened, I thought the camera was at fault.

He he, of course. There's a saying in Dutch that goes basically like this: In case of a false note, it's always the violin's fault, or the bow's, and never the violinist's. Smile

Have any of yopu tried the EP-11 Eyecup?

I find that the lens of my glasses is getting scratched. I'm not sure if this is causing it, but I might try the eyecup.

Denny, The link doesn't work, but you might want to look at this before you buy one.

I purchased one, but unable to get on with it, not to sure whether to hold on to it or not.

Edit - I wear glasses but found the EP-11 hard to get on with

I read reviews Roger, and some said it didn't work with glasses, others said it was great with glasses, so I guess it's one of thos things I'll have to determine for myself.

I'm playing around with macro gadgets and have pulled out my old Vivitar Macro Teleconverter - a 2x converter with a focus extender that turns an ordinary 50mm into a 100mm with 1:1 macro. This was taken last night at the desk with illumination from a torch placed at an angle to get the best relief. The lens is an old Pentax 50mm f/1.4.
The micro 4/3 mount it the best thing to come out of photography for ages. Love playing with old stuff...and anything is possible. I'm going to try other combinations, including an Industar 50mm f/3.5 lens on an old zork extension tube and mount the camera on some old BPM bellows to see what I can get from an enlarging lens on the front. Think an article showing differences is on the cards!

I`ve never owned a macro converter, so a while ago I dug out an old x2 converter and removed the glass elements, it does a ground job as a macro converter Smile

I have the old Canon FD 50mm f3.5 and the Lifesize adapter, plus a strange Canon 50mm extension attachment that I'm not sure about. Haven't tried it with the Canon adapter, but I'll give it a shot.

Cool shot Pete, hope you do that article.

On Amazon the price of the OMD has dropped and the free lens offer runs to January 31st, could be a good offer for some Smile
