Yet more eye candy...

I would imagine the issue he was having at the air show could be fixed by simply using sets of AF points instead of trying to keep the moving subject within one AF box.

And two things stopped me, no M43 camera and the 1500 + $$ for teleconverter. I'm always tempted to jump to the M5 model but I understand it is noticeably smaller than the M1 so that stopped me from that thought.

Interesting. Not having m43 eguipment, I can't comment directly. but as a 43 user who has shot a lot of airshows, my E-3 locks focus fast using just the single point S-AF setting. Of course, being an experienced air show watcher, I do have the advantage of knowing the planned maneuvers and can have my camera waiting at the spot where i know where the aircraft will be when I plan to take the shot.

Yes, it is a problem solver Sammy but my understanding is the only Olympus body that focuses 4/3 lenses fast is the M1 and I really do not want to spend that much on a body and I do have three 4/3 lenses.

"QUOTE from the link ..... If you wnat to see what kind of pictures you can take with the new Olympus 40-150mm f/2.8 PRO zoom than check the images posted by Frank Rückert on Pen3.de. Really great images!
"

In fact I dare anyone to post ANY images and guess what camera/make took them, most decent lenses focus close in fact, and are equally good

I see no images that could not be equal or better with Nikon, Canon, Pentax etc

Sorry

Dont get me wrong, Olympus is a great camera, nice lenses, quality finish, but, place the equal in Canon, Nikon, Pentax side by side by side and no one will see any difference in prints

The 29th is before the 30th so still within the November time frame, about all we could ask for..... I reckon.

I swapped private messages with one of the posters over on DPReview. He called B&H to get on their wait list, which they told him was over 100 people. He then called Arlington Camera to get on theirs too and they told him they expected to receive 1 unit in November and the rest at some point later.
