And if we all eat beans instead of meat to get our protein we'll be producing quite a lot more methane ourselves...('Blazing Saddles' times 7billion ;))

It's amazing how well-known dealers such as Wex can't seem to get them. They could, of course, be fulfilling a backlog of customers' orders which out-number their allocations of the converters, hence...

I think the 150-450mm will be a stunning lens if the 300mm is anything to go by.

It's going to be quite a price, though - having added both a 1.4x converter and a new EM1 II to my kit this year,...

There's been a lot of criticism of Olympus for bringing out several recent items that seem to go against the m4/3 ethos of small and light - the E-M1X and a number of 'PRO' lenses come to mind - so...

1.8kgs would be nice but I think it might be quite a bit heavier than that. It all depends on how much glass is in there. The 300mm F4 weighs 1475g with tripod foot and contains 17 elements. The...

I hope it's not changed too much. We're thinking of returning, possibly next year. Looks about the same on Google earth anyway.

I've had up to a dozen on my Buddleia bushes this week. A month or so previously there were lots of worn individuals passing through the area.

I use the 300mm F4 for larger butterflies/dragonflies and it's an absolute gem and I also have the 60mm for when I have time and a cooperative subject for the smaller damselflies, etc. A longer macro...

The 2x converter will fit the current 40-150mm F2.8 and 300mm F4 lenses as well as the new 150-400mm so that's one good point. I'm thinking of getting the 1.4x some time but will wait for the tests...

It certainly looks like the 40-150mm F2.8, though the lenshood is not the standard issue. Could just be the photographer's own lens with a different hood (the original has come in for some...

Actually, looking again at photo 2, the ground colour of the hindwing isn't 'plain' enough for SSB, which wouldn't have that whitish area on it, so is it a Common Blue without cell-spot?
