  • No kidding! When I look at this comparison again, I still can't figure out how Panasonic did it. It's not like the Pentax has plenty of empty space inside. If you sliced it open you would probably ...
  • If a $1500 camera can "destroy" a $750 camera, then perhaps a $3000 camera could destroy a $1500 camera? This really takes us back to the old equivalence chestnut. Is there such a thing as "price ...
  • Wait..... you mean it doesn't?

  • @Barney,,,,, this certainly isn't bad journalism. In fact the article is very informative. There is an awful lot of good content there.

    And you are right to put it in context. There really are...

  • Here you are absolutely right. You cannot make this camera any larger without losing the plot. It needs to be small, and it needs to be very good in order to find it's product niche. And I believe ...
  • Everyone has their own style and their own preferences. You really can't explain why people do the things they do, so you just have to speculate. So here are my guesses... (1) The guy with three full ...
  • One all black, one silver and tan, and two different silver and black versions! All black Silver/Black (notice, no silver on top of grip or on bottom plate) Silver/Black (with silver on top of grip ...
  • Rich, if you had a model release from this poor guy, you could sell this photo to Olympus or Panasonic for use in one of their ads. This is the "camera guy" that no one wants to be. Full frame ...
  • It doesn't mean "dislike."

    It just gives you the ability to change your mind AFTER you have liked a post. I suppose it would also come in handy if you "liked" something by mistake, or liked the...

  • There are plenty of public schools in the USA where there is no homework. And children are free to play and express themselves. And while Finland might have "the shortest school day, and fewest ...
  • Hard to believe they are the same bag! Kirk's is downright ugly, while yours is quite nice looking! :-D
  • This is one product that you must see, handle, then decide for yourself. Unlike cameras and lenses, there are no spec sheets and test charts for the "experts" to compare. There isn't much high ...
  • I really enjoyed reading your post, and you make some valid points. But as one old man to another..... please explain how camera makers are supposed to reduce their margins, by "not cutting ...
  • But your 10-18mm lens is NOT the same focal length as the 7-14mm lens. Since you already strayed from your goal, why can't simomallen stray slightly in the same direction you just did? And his ...
  • I hear Samsung makes some really nice cameras and lenses, and they are selling pretty cheap right now. And Fuji makes some really nice cameras and lenses too. When it comes to small and light, it's ...
  • You already own an Olympus EM5 II and an outstanding 12-40mm PRO lens and you want to "jump ship" to another system to save a few grams of weight for a second "wide angle zoom kit?" Did I hear that ...
  • The Samsung NX500 is a pretty remarkable camera. And if you could get one, plus a lens, for only $370, then you just scored big. And here's why. Ask yourself.... what is wrong with this camera? The ...
  • List prices are about marketing, and not about relative worth or value. High end cameras are routinely given very high list prices. This creates many benefits for the manufacturer, and makes a lot ...
  • Replied in My experience
    I was a 4/3 user who moved on to M4/3. And I had some of the same lenses you have: (1) 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 (2) 11-22mm f/2.8-3.5 (3) 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 (4) 14 ...
  • Replied in Pay attention
    Well, that's what happens when I reply to the first post, without reading the others! I probably should have also noticed the thread is two months old!
