    This is sad, terrible and disgusting. I’ve visited Lake Clark many times. I’ve fished and taken hundreds of photos. At no time did we disturb the bears or any wildlife. What’s being proposed is viable. As long as guides mind the people that come to fish and photograph the wildlife…

    I really don't know how people can still be so ignorant of how crop factor works. You have to multiply the aperture as well as the shutter speed to get equivalent results, so your conclusions here are an utter fallacy. This lens produces images exactly equivalent to what a 300-800mm…

    Hi Dan, It will be very interesting to read your comments comparing the OM-1 and the OM-1 ii once you have been using your new cameras in the field for a while. Reading the different blogs and comments I’m still not convinced that the improvements are worth switching models, but…

    I also completely agree with you. When I used film cameras in the past, I used Olympus OM-3/4 and Contax etc. When I became interested in bird and animal photography, my main camera became the Caonn EOS-1. However, the Canon 600mm lens weighs 6kg, making it difficult to use without…
