    EXIF data shows the Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F2.8 with the EC-14 TC...

    Which means 850mm equivalent FOV, right?

    Must be a lie, though, because everyone knows the sensor in these cameras is too small to produce "professional" results. :tongue:

    Wow!

    I always though those were a myth, like the tooth fairy, or the Olympus E-7...

    Well....
    The EXIF data shows the shooter's gear as the E-5. Wonder if he/she will purchase the EM-1 :confused:

    really... the internet told me that 4/3 sensors had no IQ.... what ever that means :)

    I've never seen that.....But I have seen lots of arguments that Four Thirds are equal to APS-C though :smile:

    You can find some of those debates here in this very forum :smile:

    For an old camera system with crappy IQ the lenses sure are expensive :tongue:

    Can you manual focus nicely with 4/3 lenses?

    Shhhh....you cant say that out loud here. Ned might be listening lol

    I think many of the 4/3 lenses have mechanical linkage for focusing. They should be a pleasure to manually focus, but Ive never had a chance to try one.

    Seriously, most users of other systems don't realize just how good Olympus 4/3 HG and SHG lenses are. If the "new camera" lives up to expectations regarding focus compatibility with these lenses, then :43: users are in for a treat. OK, not many people can afford, say, the 300mm f2.8 or the 90-250mm f2.8 constant aperture zoom, but in the UK at least there is a hire service for the full range. Another to try would be the 150mm f2 - quite possibly the sharpest lens ever made. :biggrin:
