  • Replied in 'M' quick shot
    Thanks guys, its a marvelous little combo.
  • Created photos 'M' quick shot
    Recent family gathering with the 'M' and the 22
  • I've started using this as my default import preset for my E-M5 files. This is a great preset you've created! I'm finding that it recovers highlights better than anything else I've tried to do, ...
  • Steve, I know this is a cliché but I enjoy slowing down and using the manual focus lenses, but I still have my AF versions available when I want them. It is a beautiful lens isn't it? I did a ...
  • It's even more fun to say "stopped down to f/1.4" :-D I could almost see getting the Voigt 17 and 25, and getting rid of everything else... almost. Here's one more sample for you - a head and ...
  • I have the Voigt and the Oly 45/1.8 and have used the Voigt more often than 45. The Voigt is a wonderful piece of craftsmanship and is a joy to shoot with IF you like to use manual focus lenses. ...
  • Replied in Maybe.....
    I try not to be to very argumentative about such things :-) though I am pretty opinionated! I should have clarified - I was referring to the AF tracking sucking - the single focus acquisition speed ...
  • Now TEdolph, you're being a little unfair, I know the E-M1 is supposed to do better at focus tracking but that body is hardly a fair comparison to the 'M'. Pretty much all of the rest of the m4/3 ...
  • Replied in m4/3 and EOS M
    Well, I suspect you know that pretty much all of the current m4/3 bodies are 16mp, not 18. the difference between those numbers is pretty insignificant in my experience. The first and very obvious ...
  • Replied in m4/3 and EOS M
    I'm a m4/3 shooter primarily and also have the EOS M with the 22 and 18-55 zoom. I like the EOS and use it to travel with so I can leave my much more expensive primary kit at home. I don't find ...
  • Created photos Through the window
    Flew home today out of General Mitchel airport (Milwaukee, WI) I've taken a lot of shots through the window of the planes, usually haze and scratchy windows really lower the quality of the results. ...
  • It's amazing to me how small a fixed lens camera can be. The 12-35 shown is a constant f/2.8 lens so on the wide side the LX100 is only 1 1/3 stops faster, not 2. And they are the same f/2.8 on ...
  • While I realize the LX100 doesn't utilize the full resolution of the m4/3 sensor - it seems that a useful perspective on this new camera would be to compare it to the available m4/3 bodies and ...
  • Nice use of the FE in the first shot...
  • Created discussions 2nd go around with the M
    I had bought the EOS M several months ago when the price was first reduced to a reasonable level. I took a few hundred shots and was generally pleased with the results, but not particularly ...
  • Some carnival shots from the Vernon Hills Summer Celebration - Vernon Hills, IL Shot with the GX7 & 12-35
  • I've always been very careful to not let lenses or cameras touch each other in a bag - I have a collection of the padded Velcro dividers that I add or remove as necessary. My most used bag is an ...
  • I have that combo and have enjoyed using it. Wide open with head/shoulder framing the DOF is pretty shallow and creates a nice soft look for portraits. I've also used it for some rainy day ...
  • I have the GX7 and the EM5 but it doesn't matter to me which camera I'm using. In my use, I don't have any special mode for any type of photography with the exception of using flash indoors. I ...
  • I just noticed your question - thanks, and by the way, are you referring to my wife's work or my photography? Either way, no, she doesn't do that for hire, and the couple of weddings I shot more ...
