  • I had the EM5 too switched completely to DSLR and came back again, so if you can keep it and probably one or two of your favorite lenses you will probably not regret it. I think the DSLR systems ...
  • I had it for a while and you are right it is a great lens in all aspects aside of sharpness which is only average for that kind of lens. But I have to say compared to the 15mm to me it is still ...
  • @ the OP: The difference in this scenario will not be major and hard to detect for several reasons: 1. Difficult lighting 2. In this portrait only center sharpness of the lens matters (which is ...
  • Replied in RX-1R
    Good for you, Jeff. But that is a tradeoff that many would probably not want. A camera without viewfinder or tilt screen. No more interchangeable lenses means only 35mm - at a stellar quality ...
  • I have been using an EP5 happily for 16 months now. Only thing I am missing from time to time is an integrated viewfinder. I use the vf4 practically on a daily basis, but it makes the EP5 quite ...
  • I had both lenses but unfortunately I cannot offer comparison photos as I never really directly compared them. My impression was though that the Oly 17 is less sharp - even at f2.8. It is not a ...
  • The 15mm is a very nice lens. Because of its shorter focal length it will offer a very different perspective compared to the 42.5. But I really like the look of the results. Here is a recent photo ...
  • You are right. There are many subjects which are worthwhile and static. But I thought the purpose of a zoom is to be versatile - not to be great at very specific tasks. And with the social life - ...
  • What is the purpose of this. This is to be expected. An unchallenging non-moving subject with a lot of straight lines and shot at a very much closed aperture for this sensor size. I would expect ...
  • The Olympus system was a bit better before maybe ½ to 1 stop and has now been improved by another stop if early reviews and Olympus claims are to be believed. Plus Olympus stabalizes every lens ...
  • I recently had to decide whether to take the 45mm f1.8 alongside the 12-40 f2.8 with me on a vacation and decided against it. Instead I took the 15mm and the 25 mm because I use those focal ...
  • True. But those were not the same customers, I presume. I for one do not buy a new tablet every other year. And as of late Kindle Fire sales have plummeted (-70% in the 4th quarter). Source: ...
  • Thanks for sharing. Being a European living in the US (and I really like it here) this made me remember what I miss most about the old continent. The history you can breath in wandering through ...
  • You argue as if there is only one manufacturer you are forced to buy from. If a manufacturer acts as you describe he is not very smart either. He will lose many past customers and - in these days ...
  • You don't get it. Amazon honored the contractual agreement. After a long list of returns Amazon considered the cost of doing business with this customer too high and therefore stopped doing ...
  • Hi Walt, I certainly would like you to join m43. But why do you not consider the Sony A7II which is labelled as "weather resistant" and has a 5-axis IS? Switching to m43 there will probably be ...
  • How silly. A D810 is a different tool for different tasks. It is huge and much more expensive in comparison. The bigger sensor obviously allows for cleaner hi res images out of the box. If Olympus...

  • I don't really get what is going on with Nikon. 500 Dollars for a superzoom with a smallish compact camera sensor and a slow aperture? You can buy a Panasonic FZ1000 with a much bigger sensor, a...

  • @FujiLiver I tried the regular A7 in a Manhattan Sony Store. Maybe it had been through too many hands, but to me the outer shell seemed not very solid and the camera is too light for the size and...

  • Good for you. I am currently battling with myself over getting the original E-M5 as a second body to my E-P5 or buying the new one and use the E-P5 as a second smaller setup. The price for the E-M5...
