Ethics in Macro photography
I've never seen a baby seal sitting on a dog turd and then attempting to eat my doughnut afterwards.

Ethics in Macro photography
So it's ok for me to put a pigs head on stick and take a couple of pictures just as long as I partake of a nice pork chop afterwards?

If a fly s in my house I will aim to kill it, or if its by a window I will open that.

I've seen loads of flies in the bakers sitting on a nice doughnut.

I feel the need to confess I have killed flies,impaled them and photographed them. Does that make me a psychopath?

Stuck between two lenses! :(
I have the 17mm and think it's great but I have never used the 25mm.

You can try the 17mm for free for a weekend using the Test and Wow facility from Olympus.

Advice Needed

Quote: [quote]Why did they insist on a full frame camera?

Presumably to sort the wheat from the chaff?!! - A ridiculous comment. How does having a full frame camera make one a better photographer than those who have crop sensors or M4/3 for instance?

no idea, they just did... Sounds to me that they don't know what they're talking about

Trade in/part ex.

Quote: Has anyone used MPB to sell/part ex equipment? Do they give a fair deal?

I recently sold a fair amount of equipment. I contacted MPB and some other dealers who all gave me their quotes for the goods. MPB gave me the best price but I still thought I could make more so I advertised elsewhere I and also put the goods on eBay.

Most of it sold on eBay for more than MPB offered me, however when I deducted eBay and Paypal fees, there was very little in the end price between eBay sales and the MPB offer. Having said that I could also have been luckier with my sales or alternatively I could have lost out. I'm also very wary about selling high value goods on eBay due to the eBay dispute policies.

Ultimately it would have been less hassle to go through MPB with their pick up service and potentially forfeit a few quid.

The choice is yours!

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.
