Going Fully Olympus (Almost)

I purchased the Olympus OMD EM 10 mk iii around Christmas, and I’m really pleased that I did. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, easy to use, good manual controls and I like the quality of the images. It is a touch noisy when shooting indoors in low light, but no more so than any other camera and better than many.

I’ve decided to trade in my Nikon D7100 which is heavy for me to carry with my neuro-muscular condition.

As the Nikon was great for macro with the set up that I had then I’ve brought the Mzuiko 60mm f2.8 macro, and if I find I want to get in closer thenI’ll buy a Canon 250d front end macro converter that works with Mzuiko.

I’ve also ordered the Mzuiko 75-300 which out performs the Tamron 18-270 that I had with the Nikon, so I’ll have the range of focal lengths that I want for events, especially airshows/sport.

There currently isn’t a teleconverter for this lens that I’m aware of, so I’m going to keep my Fuji s9900 bridge for birds, it’s possible poor quality but I get a few good bird photos from it.

If any one knows of a 1.4 or 2 times converter, from any brand, that’s compatible with the Mzuiko 75-300 then I would be grateful to hear about it.

    1. Much appreciated Dave. The mc14 is only compatible with two of the Mzuiko pro lenses unfortunately.
      And thanks for the tip about dropping them an email.
      I’ll get straight onto that.


  1. Hi Richard, this all sounds mind boggling! I do understand your conversion to olympus though. All the best with all the various options you have.
