  • Replied in Surely.....
    She could afford an EM5 or EM1. And both of those really are weather sealed! She may regret bringing an EM10 to the beach, then using in while standing waist deep in water. The real shocker here ...
  • What you are suggesting is that Greece should default on their loans, effectively stealing money from Germany and France. It is not the fault of the lender, that the borrower has squandered the ...
  • That lens alone sells for $400 new, or around $300 used.... so I'd call that a very good deal.
  • Replied in I agree
    I won't be upgrading either. Although the new features are nice to have, my EM5 works too well to be replaced by a very similar camera with a few nice features thrown in. However, I think the EM5 ...
  • The absence, or presence of a mirror has no effect on image quality. Since even when that mirror is there, it is flipped out of way for the exposure. You don't have a preference for "DSLR quality ...
  • there is almost no difference in image quality. I think the EM5 is marginally better, but others will see it the other way around. So it just comes down to features, since the is virtually no ...
  • the 12-32mm lens is... (1) smaller (2) lighter (3) at least as good as the 14-42mm (4) those extra 2 mm at the wide end are a huge plus
  • As you have already listed, each camera has it's own unique advantages. Both are extremely nice cameras, and your decision should rest on your own personal preferences and your own particular ...
  • How very sad it is to lose a good friend. Probably the hardest part of owning a dog is knowing that you will probably outlive him or her. Those who have never had a dog cannot possibly understand ...
  • While I am a huge UNC fan, I have to admire the way UVA is playing so well this year. They are 19-0 so far, and they are ranked #2 in the nation. Oh wait... you are talking about some other ACC?
  • Replied in Red
    You and I both have seen ten year old threads brought back from the dead! It happens when someone does a forum search rather than starting a new thread. This is actually the suggested method, to ...
  • Replied in Yes and No
    I agree with Dpreview's policy that a thread should have limits. And even 150 might be too high, because after the first 100, there isn't much left to talk about. Just a lot of bickering, that ...
  • One of the unique features of high tech products, (and a digital camera is essentially nothing more than a computer that happens to have a lens), is that they are cheaper to build than to repair. T ...
  • Replied in I had no idea!
    Thanks for the tip! I had no idea you could select the ones you wanted. I always ended up getting them all. Perhaps I need to start reading the owner's manuals?
  • @Everlast66...

    Well, since I have no personal experience with ANY of the models listed, I simply "voted for" the cameras I felt were the most significant for the year. And they were... in this...

  • I think people who never processed film don't understand how many "corrections" we had to make to get the results right. When I was in college, I had a part time job working in a darkroom at an ...
  • Lets be honest. Most of the people who voted in that poll never touched ANY of the cameras they voted for. Perhaps a few did, but most didn't.

    And absolutely no one has tested them all. Not even...

  • Tom, I was thinking the very same thing. Maybe a "B&H Superstore" in Taiwan, with it's own web based sales outlet could make a lot of money. Simply by matching prices.... and then actually ...
  • Some of those folks are a lot smarter than you give them credit for. Some people waited in line for days... only to sell their spots on ebay auctions! I read about people selling their place in ...
  • Yes, there are several full frame MILC cameras from Sony, but none of them will focus as fast as an Olympus OMD will. At least not yet. But you really must remember that Olympus is on it's third, ...
