Re: Wrong - It's simply about lenses
In reply to dave gaines, 8 months ago

This thread and my OP is about the lens options, not equivalency. I'm comparing the best HG and SHG Olympus lenses to what is available from Nikon in FX. I'm clearly writting about finding Nikon f/2.8 that will perform as well as Olympus HG and SHG lenses. I'm comparing the best lenses of one brand to the best of another.

It's unfortunate that someone has hijacked this thread to start an argument about equivalency with as many people as he could get angry enough to reply. He's kept it going by bending the subject to fit his ever-changing points.

I wish people would stop responding to this inane argument, ignore people who post these off-topic flames and Complain when they get abusive. You don't have to attend every argument you're invited to.

Absolutely agree!

I'm not sure how this discussion got to this point.
Most of us tried to argue that an Olympus 150mm F2 lens is equivalent to a 300mm F2 FF lens in all aspects except DOF. The 300mm F2.8 Olympus is equivalent to a 600mm F2.8 FF in all ways except DOF.
In other words the shutter speed you will be getting with an Olympus would be twice as fast as the brightest FF telephoto at full aperture.
Somehow the discussion has been hijacked by people that like bringing pseudoscience they don't understand into it.
