  • Replied in EP5 vs GX7
    Second this suggestion: decide on the lenses first.  They are interchangeable, but they do work best on their respective bodies.  I also switched to the GX7 partially because of the 7-14mm.  I ...
  • It would be interesting to hear from others with the E-M10 (or any other Oly for that matter) with this lens.  Based on the samples, it seems the camera is stopping it's back and forth contrast ...
  • I was thinking the same. My kids turn away when I try to take a picture of them, not to mention posing. We've now seen several of these, how on earth do you get the family to cooperate?

  • Replied in Requests
    These are difficult images to compare the lenses by.  Although it does indicate that in real world usage, there's not much between the 14 and 15mm (hopefully the 15mm doesn't purple fringe as much ...
  • After years of using Olympus and trying various other brands - IMHO Panasonic m4/3 cams are designed more for photographers than any other.  My friends are shocked, as are people looking at my ...
  • First, I would like to applaud Olympus for addressing such a key and embarrassing issue head on, and for putting out a fix for an existing camera. Second, if someone has both an E-P5 and either the ...
  • If everyone uses the "inch" system than it is a standard

  • The XZ-2 is an awesome camera, for outside shots it beat my GF5 with the 14-42 X lens (mainly because the XZ-2 has such a sharp lens).  For night shots, not so sure (I only tested a friend's ...
  • Replied in Not quite
    I would say a poor man's 7-14 is a used one off eBay.  I got one, for not much more than a new 9-18.  Sold my 9-18 after comparing the 2. The 7-14 is great - except for purple blobs.  I switched ...
  • Haha - pretty soon the OP will get a full list of competing RAW converters.  I second the DXO Optics Pro, I think it works really well with the GX7 files: both color wise, and image sharpness ...
  • I'm 100% satisfied with the Panny 14-140mm II lens.  I enjoy travel photography as well, and I don't believe anything can beat it.  The image quality is fabulous - not far behind the 12-35 and ...
  • I suspect Panny will eventually support other m4/3 lenses, via a firmware update.  Also, DFD is such an elegant solution - if it works, I also hope that Oly licenses it - or that it gets built ...
  • Replied in Regardless..
    Super!  Yet another feature I was anxious to see, is how much better e-shutter is at the faster readout of this camera. This isn't a perfect test for it, but it looks quite good.  I expect the GX8 ...
  • I tested a friend's 17mm 1.8 side by side with my 17mm 2.8.  I was very disappointed, it hardly improved on my otherwise pretty poor copy of the 17mm 2.8.  I've seen great images with 1.8 online, ...
  • I really never get the total scores for DXO.  In this case, each measurement is higher for the E-M1, when you look at the graphs.  I've noticed this before with lenses as well.  They would rate ...
  • Figured that would certainly part of the deal.  It would strengthen the system overall.  Even though I don't have a lot of lenses, and shied away from expensive fixed zooms, I would still shell ...
  • Absolutely in agreement about the 100-300.  I've held off buying this lens, in the hope that Panny wakes up and spruces it up.  Especially since Oly did the same with the competing 75-300.  If ...
  • Panasonic stepped up their game with the new Leica branded 15mm and 42.5mm.  I think the aperture ring is a great idea, as well as putting out a quality lens body worthy of the Leica name.  I now ...
  • I was just thinking the same Geoff, but I guess to each his/her own.  I went back to natural, and find that even that is over sharpened.   Vivid was really over sharpened (and contrasty).  Oh ...
  • Quite a bit of purple fringing in the center of the lens.  I presume the E-M1 does not (yet) correct for this.  Of course this is a test shot, as otherwise one wouldn't shoot at 1.2, and ...
