  • I can't fully agree, here. Photography is not only about results but about fun, too. It's just like in the automotive world: If it was just about getting safely and comfortably from A to B, nobody ...
  • Purchased the 12-40 with the E-M1, sold it a few weeks later. It's just to short for replacing my beloved 12-60 SWD. When it comes to the tele zoom, we still have to wait and see if I can live ...
  • Well, shooting both motherships - E-M1 and GH4 - I can well understand why the Oly is the higher appreciated camera. Yes, it's clearly outclassed by the GH4 in the video area - although its ...
  • Well, here are some sighthounds shot with the GH4 and the Lumix 45-175 (the m.Zuiko 40-150 Pro arrived just the other week) GH4 goes sighthound shooting ...here some every-dog-race pics shot with ...
  • I'm asking myself what lens you have used to get this kind of disappointing results. Here a collection of BIF shots with the FZ1000. (you arguably will have to register to see them). First set second ...
  • Well, this comment definitely demonstrates that you don't know what you are talking about. With the excception of the very first generation of µFT lenses, the entire bunch of Panny and Oly tele ...
  • Well, just watch this video and you will find out that the A6000's AF speed is not competitive - even in good conditions. Thank you very much. http://www.traumflieger.de/reports/Kamera-Tests/Wer-ha ...
  • Well, there already is a sliding move to µFT due to its outstanding overall package - including S-AF and C-AF. And with the next generation, the last DSLR bastion will have been taken by storm and ...
  • Well, pound for pound there is massive size advantage for the µFT lenses. Most of the E-mount lenses are clearly inferior and those that aren't are significcantly bigger and more expensive. There ...
  • Well, I particularly doubt that it will have a comptitive AF system. In he past five years, none of the competitors was able to close the gap to the µFT manufacturers but none was further away ...
  • Well, first of all, up- or downgrading the firmware is an affair of very few minutes. So why shouldn't I do it hen I feel the need to do so. Then: I'm shooting with - in addition to the E-M5 - both ...
  • You really needn't to explain me the basics of photography. And you only try to detract from the topic: You claimed that the AF-system of the FZ1000 is inferior to the ones of DSLRs such as the ...
  • Nope: As I'm using both the GH4 and the E-M1 I have desperately been trying for months to get the GH4 JPEGs on the E-M1 level. You can get close but you can't get there. And there is the colour ...
  • Well, being an Oly enthusiast who used Oly cams nearly exlusively and therefore could rely on their outstanding JPEG engines in most of the cases, since 2009, I won't comment on raws as my ...
  • Well, I don't exactly know what you mean with VGA size but I most defintely can see what's in the DOF area and what's outside in a picture shown - for instance - at 1600 x 900.
  • Don't change the topic. You questioned the S-AF/C-AF performance of the FZ1000 and you don't need big big pictures to see that it works perfectly. IQ is another story but that's not what you ...
  • Well Jim, I couldn't agree less. If a  manufatcurer opts for electronical instead of mechanical corrections for some reason this is just another way for achieving the same result and the fact that ...
  • I also recommend buying the E-5 with its wonderul modular grip sytem. It features an even better IS, is weather and dust sealed and if you buy a slightly used one, cou can get it for ridiculous ...
  • Well, there are loads of stunning FZ1000 BIF pics in the German DSLR forum. I read t features the same AF as the GH4 and I can tell you that thr GH4's C-AF is virtually bullit proof.
  • Well, as I see it, the question should be: when is there an advantage shooting with the bigger box. I shot my E-M5 nearly exclusively with the smallest box of the magnifying menu and do the same ...
