Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150 f/2.8 PRO
The lens arrived yesterday and I had a couple of hours to play with it this morning. I think I'm going to like it.

It's a magical lens, so good I was even able to snap a shot of the elusive Father Christmas with it.

Quote: Did you have to split the order yourself or did you just get notified it was on its way?

Initially I split the order after the first email but then I received a second email informing me that the lens was now in stock and they could despatch it if I wanted. I had to call to confirm that I did and arrange a delivery date.

TC is still on back order.

Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150 f/2.8 PRO

Quote: I originally ordered end of Oct. but when WEX had a 10% off I asked if they would apply that to a lens already on order. Unfortunately the only way they could give me the 10% off was to cancel the original order and make out a new one, which they did in the middle of Nov. I might have to wait a bit longer but I could not pass up the offer.

Same here, annoying but I'm prepared to wait for 150 saving.

I know Jessop's have delivered the lens + TC to one person.

New promotion, buy the EM-1 then buy another lens over 199 within 30 days to be eligible. So effectively I got the 45 for 68 (and one can still claim the grip). Result!

Head In The Sand

Quote: In Rotherham, 1,400 girls were being systematically sexually abused and it appears no-one knew. Jimmy Savile assaulted and raped countless young people on BBC premises, hospitals and mental homes....and nobody in the BBC, police or hospital management knew. Bob Diamond's Barclays staff were busily rigging the LIBOR rate but he didn't know.

I suspect it's more a case of 'claiming' not to know in a lot of those cases..

Claims that Moon landing was faked debunked once more
I'd be a bit more sceptical if it was just one moon landing, but there were 6 landings in total putting twelve men on the moon. Could anybody really hoax an operation that large on 6 occasions and not get found out?

Head for lightweight camera
I went through the same process when I got my em10. I have an old Gitzo ballhead not dissimilar, but a little bigger, to this Manfrotto 494RC2.

I found the ballhead to be more stable than the trigger grip because it is so easily locked in place and the friction is easy to adjust to suit.

Quote: If you don't mind fisheye lenses the Oly 9mm bodycaplens is good fun for 80. And very compact

I got mine for free when I purchased the Oly EM10

It's a fun little lens. These were taken with it. Looks like it shrunk the Gherkin though.

Quote: Crossed in the post! My exported TIFFs are already reduced in resolution so the file size is suitable for uploading. It would be mad not to I agree. It's just so annoying that a site unnecessarily makes life difficult. And it isn't just this one of course.

I might be being a bit dumb here, but if you already resize and export as a tiff, why not just change the file format settings to export as jpeg. Are you using LR?

What is the benefit of resizing your tiff file to epz sizes?

Quote: I wasn't suggesting the site displays tiffs. It could do the conversion as part of the upload.

So what is your suggestion for the upload process?

Produce a tiff, upload to epz, epz converts tiff to jpeg/resizes etc, post to gallery?

Quote: So if I 'like' an image I can 'vote' for it too, but if I don't think it's that good I don't need to vote but I can still like it.

The vote is being used for everything under the sun, you have ago at cliques (a word that makes me cringe) but if you like something the only choice you have is to vote, its a fault of the system, not of the people using it.

I really don't mind cliques, whatever floats your vote is fine by me but its getting very confusing as to why there should be two distinct methods of saying, "I like this photograph". Let's have one button and call it a click/vote/like* (delete where appropriate)

2 Exhibitions worth a look in London

Quote: Charlie Waite at the Littleton Theatre foyer on until September. If you like his images in books, you'll love them properly printed and mounted. I'm not a landscaper but every picture is superb. I found them inspiring, even if at the same time they made me think about chucking all my kit away and giving up. Grin

Just a short walk along the South Bank and you come to the OXO Gallery. A little know photographer, Colin O'Brien has a small exhibition of Londoners from way back to the present. All mono and well worth having a look at. And he's a very nice chap too and good to talk to. He's there until 10th August.

Both free.

Thanks for the pointers, I'm going to London on Saturday and will pop in.
