  • I love my 12mm f/2 Loy.in manual. Also the Voigtlander 17.5mm f/.95. I have a gaggle of Nikon macros and tele's. Favorite is the 105 f/2.8 Micro Nikkor. My 500mm f/8 mirror Nikkor is quite sharp...
  • MMmmm! I had a similar problem with my  E-M5's with two cards. I tried them in other cameras and got the same error. I thought it was cards and actually posted about it in MFT Talk forum. I since...
  • Now this one is REALLY moving!
  • I can only guess, but mine is pretty substantial and has a nice solid feel. I'd be less concerned whether plastic or metal. If anything, plastic is more resilient than metal.
  • That makes for some interesting shots! Catch that baby on the go when the baby done gone and went!!!
  • I've gotten some pretty impressive shots using iPhones 4, 4s and 5.
  • Ditch digger here. If I had my druthers, I'd druther take pictures for a living. Said. I've heard other posters talking of this same problem - people's relative ignorance when it comes to...
  • Replied in great shots
    I do have to wonder -  Though poor and oppressed, what would they gain by becoming more like us? While I don't care for our own deciding whether they should be "allowed" to modernize as we have, I...
  • Size means a lot. I never owned a DSLR and never will. Coming from film I saw DSLR's as way too big and bulky - throwbacks to the day when press photographers carried Speed Graphics. I got into...
  • I'm a huge fan of primes and love my 12mm f/2. Oly. I've seen it panned a few times, but don't find the purported lack of sharpness to be apparent in real shooting. I did some landscapes one rainy...
  • I think that the "speed boosters" only work, so far, with lenses that have grater flange focal plane distances than native MFT lenses. That is, you can use legacy Nikon, Canon, and now Olympus...

  • See my profile to see my gear list. I'll focus on the macros, as some of the stars of my kit are macros.     You made a good decision getting the Oly 60mm. I'd only pont out that 45mm is a good...
  • Aw!! You know. Threats of spontaneous self combustion, immolation and going to your beds without dinner. Pick yourselves up off the foor, wipe your tears and be good little boys and girls...--The...
  • Thanks all! I pretty had much figured I'd still have to work my "regular" job. As I'm self emloyed I'm not put off by the prospect. As a matter of fact my own line of business can be spotty so...
  • Commented on P4040239 photo in gregbartgis's photo gallery

    I heard a slight rustling in the leaves and looked closely 'til I found this little fella which leapt onto a low twig. I had to carefully approach it and find as firm a mounting place as I could. I...

    This lens on MFT camera is the equivalent of a1000mm lens on FF camera. I love using the compression to accentuate the illusion of mountainous vistas.
