  • Nope. They are committed to 'One Beautiful System'. The E-M1 takes the FT lenses to a new, never witnessed height. That's what they promised and that's what they did. That's what you can do with ...
  • Well, the question is: has the A7 range really been an economicak success, to date? I don#t know but I don't think so. I don't think that the FF range of any camera manufacturer is a cash cow. It's ...
  • Well, I wouldn't Olympus expect to commit economical suicide any time soon.
  • Hmmmm, I wonder where he found this couple of pro lenses for his A7 - that - should they exist - would be far bigger than the µFT lenses.
  • Replied in 12-60?
    Defintely the 12-60 SWD. The 12-40 was sold after just a week. Wouldn't like to miss the extra length.
  • I always use the Wii wrist straps, for my µFT cameras.
  • Well, at least these guys found a way to downgrade the firmwares of E-M5 and E-M1. And downgrading an E-M5 to FW 1.2 is a very attractive move if you want to use this camera for shooting sport and ...
  • Well, Olympus seniors said often enough that they regard their compan as manufacturer of photo cameras. Video is just an extra they fdon't care too much abvout. And right they do. Today, they are ...
  • 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 ...
