  1. My first medium format camera, in the early-mid 1970s, was a Bronica S2a. I sold it after a couple of years but have since had a couple of others, and including several lenses and the bellows (with swings and tilts). I adapted a view camera lens to work with the bellows. A great system, and I still have a S2a with the 75mm and 200mm Nikkors. In the early '90s I got into the SQ series and used various bodies and lenses for almost 15 years. I only had problems once, with a SQAm that refused to advance the film, and that was corrected quickly with a trip to the service centre.
  2. It seems to load faster for me. Well done.
  3. Affinity Photo will do panoramas, at least the Windows version will. Look under the File menu and you should see "New Panorama...". It also does HDR and focus stacking (it calls it Focus Merge). One of the things that I like is that it will do these techniques with RAW files (Olympus .orf in my case) while most other apps require tifs or jpgs. Peter
  4. The PL 100-400 is a m43 lens so it mounts on any m43 body without an adapter. On my EM1.2 body AF is as fast and as accurate as any other lens that I have, including a couple of Olympus Pro lenses.
  5. Hi Ann, In fact, they overwinter as adults. In 'The Butterflies of Canada' the authors state that there are two broods per season, with the second emerging in August, flying until late October, overwintering and then flying again in early spring, until May. In the Ottawa area, where I am (and a bit north of you in NY state), they have been seen from late March to early November. Peter
  6. The caterpillars in the first photo look like Mourning Cloaks (see here and here). Peter
