This week, I took a look at an E1 in a dealer's shop. They had the
E1, 14-48mm and 50-200mm on display. I have a few comments and
Try as I might, I could not get the back open.
Neither could I! However, I was informed that the manual focussing
ring can be set to operate in either direction. This was offered when
I noticed that the indicator ring on the standard lens was turning in
the opposite direction to the manual ring. Is this true? - damn
clever choice if it is! Couldn't check as no-one there had the nous
to work out how - the rep had left the basic kit with them for a
couple of days. The manual focus feels nice - light but well damped.
The salespersons comment - it feels nice but... They aren't really
into Oly - mostly Canon bigots. But then, the rep hasn't taken his
clothes off yet.
