    This tickled me a little, as I was thinking of the bird forum and my general distaste of the 'bird on a stick' photos. It most definitely is, a bird on a stick (although obviously not enough for the purists). Taken with EM1ii and PL100-400.

    Nice and sharp but I can see bad jpeg artifact rings in the sky.

    That's how my E-M5II was recently.
    I presume it's not an E-M1ii as they are priority as pro kit

    Better than Panasonic though.

    Its fairly normal, the repair for my 12-40 took a bit of time too but was well worth it.

    All taken with the 12-40, decided on 30mm macro as my next lens though...

    I think it's a great little lens for what it costs.

    I took a gamble and bought from here https://www.tecobuy.com/en_UK/olymp...MIy4OUhO-82gIVhkAbCh2zjg9REAkYASABEgLwQPD_BwE

    As they take paypal only I thought, if they don't deliver I will be covered. (I called Paypal just to make sure). I ordered on a Wednesday. The following Wednesday it arrived. And that was over the Easter weekend.

    I don't know if it will work but try REVIEW in the promo/voucher code box. You might get another fiver off. They sent me it for a review I done on Trustpilot.

    Tecobuy - I took delivery of a 15mm Panny Leica a couple of weeks ago, and am currently awaiting delivery of a 40-150mm f2.8 Pro. I had the extra £5 discount for posting a review.
    No problem with either order, and great prices.

    It's not about the stick, it's about the detail of the bird itself, people just go for that uncluttered background to help it stand out. Personally, I prefer a little foliage, or scenic back drop, but I can appreciate good detail. You need to get closer and fill the frame much as poss.

    Sounds rough, sorry to hear you had an accident. A friend of mine tripped over the landing gear of a light aircraft and protecting his E-M5 and 12-40 PRO he fell on his elbow.
    This was the result, I think under the circumstances he wishes he'd sacrificed the camera :(

    It's an automatic reaction to save something that cost so much when it's in your hands

    Sure. If you have reactions fast enough to make a rational decision then you’re probably some kind of ninja and therefore won’t be tripping to begin with.

    Few shots with the em10ii the other day at Leeds Castle in Kent.

    Leeds Castle have a lovely Falconry center there. One of the staff had this owl, called Mozart, on her arm. She was answering any questions about owls and showing Mozart off. I asked if Mozart would be ok if I put on a macro lens and put the lens near him. No problem at all she said. He's a right poser :) I was lucky enough only to be about 10 inches away from this wonderful bird whilst taking photos. After a few shots I gave him a stroke to thank him. He's feathers are as soft as a cloud. Thank you Mozart for being such a great model :)

    So I have acquired a E-PM1, old camera, no immediate manual controls…..is this any good?

    If I were to have fun with this, what is the best/cheapest 35 or 50mm prime?

    Recieved repair cost from Olympus yesterday, forwarded it to Panamoz who transferred funds immediately. Great service Tina and team! Just waiting for the camera to come back from Portugal now......

    Should be fun you can get a viewfinder a VF3 is good.
    The Oly 17mm f2.8 or f1.8 would work with the f1.8 being better. If a zoom is wanted the 14-42 60mm EZ is a lovely little lens.

    I love my little Panasonic 25 1.7, it is 'nifty-fifty' plastic fantastic for the price, I find it plenty sharp enough wide open and it focuses nice and close too, also very quietly.

    Best for me is the Olympus 17mm f1.8 but it's probably too expensive.
    The Panasonic 25mm f1.7 is a great lens and great value but perhaps a bit large on that body.
    The Olympus 17mm f2.8 is a good pancake 35mm equ lens which is very compact - that would be my choice with an older smaller m4/3 body.
    [I own all 3 but should probably sell on the 17mm f2.8 as I haven't used it since I got the f1.8]

    I had a VF4 for my E-PL5 but it seldom got used even though it was lovely.
    If you want an EVF then I'd go for the E-M10 body.

    E-PM1 got me in to csc and a good little camera.
    Make sure to enable the SCP to speed up access to ISO, White balance etc.
    Enjoy!

    Fantastic Mark! I'm sure you'll love it. There's some phenomenal native AF glass available from Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma, mostly at very sensible prices. Look forward to seeing what you take with it.
