  • Well, okay - it's not part of what you meant. So I can't argue jere. Nonetheless, I think that providing great JPEGs ios one of the basic components of the Olympus approach. I also own a Panny GH4 ...
  • Well, the modular grip system is one of the big plusses of the E-M5. I had loved loved the E-M1 to also be that transformable. Ultra compact if you need it, perfect ergonomics if you need it - and ...
  • One thing that would make me purchase a new E-M5 MKII would be if it would be equipped with the DFD (?) AF system of Panny's GH4. Don't get me wrong, I'm really more than pleased with the C-AF of ...
  • Well, I currently shoot both the E-M1 and the GH4 and as a JPEG shooter, I can say this definitely isn't the case. While the E-M1 allows me to go the JPEG route in 98 percent of the cases sas its ...
  • Well, I don't know a lot about the IQ quality in the film days as I was just a point-and-shooter, then. But I'd agree to certain extent, as I love the output of my E-30 more than the one of my ...

    Hi Dharma, unfotunately, BIF is one of the topics I don't really do. And as I said, focusing on a bird that already is in flight proved to be impossible for me with the 50-200 SWD - while it can be ...
  • Well, according to a test recently published in the German mag 'Colorfoto', the E-M1 C-AFs faster than the 7D MKi - that is anything but a slouch, in this area and has been regarded as the C-AF ...

    Thanks Rick.
  • Well, I remember an Olympus official - I think it was Toshi Terada himself - saying in an interview half a year prior to the E-M1 launch that they are not terribly fond of the on-sensor PDAF and ...

    Well, Roel, I really don't understand what's going on there. Have been using the E-M1 with the 50-200 SWD for shooting dog action since last autumn and was absolutely happy with the performance ...

    Well, at Olympus they claim it's the best zuioko zoom ever built - so better than the FT SHGs and according to some graphics I'm not able to read it even outperforms the 150 2.0 - according to ...
  • Hi Ohio shooter, the E-M1's C-AF with the 50-200 SWD is highly competitive. The problem is that Olympus still are nit willing/able to give us an AF field that remains visible in the burst mode ...
  • Thanks for the explanation, Lambert. I fully agree.
  • Ah, thanks. And yes, I also hoped for using it with my 75 1.8.
  • Well... if you want to use the 50-200 on the E-M5 I'd seriously recommend using the non-SWD version. It also doesn't AF fast but it's not a pain in... as the SWD version is. On the other hand, the ...
  • Well, it took me quite a while to find out how the GH4 ticks. The main difference to my Oly cameras: you have to have the sharpness in the plus area, not in the minus. Now I'm rather happy with my ...
  • Thanks, Aberaeron, you're absolutely right - although PPing the Panny JPEGs is more difficult than dpong so with the Oly JPEGs as you haven't got the L-SF JPEGs. So, you have to be far more carful ...
  • No I didn't as I can't use it at the dog racetrack. There, you are lying - for instance - at the end of the home straight on the left side and you have to slightly pan to keep your AF field on the ...
  • Hi Aberson, at a time I had iResolution at 'extended' to see the effect but apart from that, I thought I'd better try the other settings before letting an automatic decide what amount of ...
  • Hi Rens, it's not about sharpness or details as a whole. You can reduce and increase them in both cameras to your own liking. But did you take a look at the pic I posted further up? The section ...
