  • Commando :) And even an engagement took place =) No jokes with this guy!
  • You're not taking lenses to a count, in terms of size an weight, m4/3 lenses are much lighter and smaller (maybe only Canon 40/2.8 is small enough to compare).
  • In the beginning of 2015 there must be Olympus 300mm/F4 prime (which gives you 600mm/F8 in terms of 35mm focal length and DOF), and also there is rumored Olympus 40-150/2.8 (80-300/5.6 in 35mm ...
  • Hi! I own both Fuji X-E1 (not X-T1, but same sensor), and Canon 6D, and also Olympus EM1. Well, if you are already used to DSLRs upgrade to 6D would be less painful in terms of overall system logic ...
  • Nice portraits! I love skin tone from Olympus more - Sony has strange yellow/green cast that I don't like, and often call zombie-skin tone :) But Sony captures a lot more details indeed, and less ...
  • SCP - Super Control Panel. Pressing Ok button makes SCP panel to appear, and there you can adjust many camera settings without menu diving. To enable SCP go to Detailed Camera Options (Gears Menu) ...
  • Congrats! I've switched from Fuji X-E1 to EM1 recently, debating a lot if I should've take X-T1, but in the end I have no regrets. Better converters support, lighter and smaller lenses, overall ...
  • Seems too short for birding and such... I would prefer 100-400 at least, and f3.7 is nice thing, but lens is going to be huge... 100-400/4-4.8 option is much better (and smaller/lighter, I think).
  • +1 on that I have Canon 6D and Fuji X-E1, and Fuji no near in IQ, especially when ISO starts to rise, Fuji tends to "cook" RAWs by applying some NR, and we have fine-details smeared. Compared to ...
  • Yes, that's what I meant - Fuji won JPEG and zoom-RAW comparison because of better optics and jpeg engine. Results with fixed primes are expected - differences in rendering approach (Oly with less ...
  • PhotoNinja tends to produce some artifacts often, and workflow in not the simplest, I prefer Capture One for Fuji (and not only Fuji's) files. I've downloaded comparison scene RAWs from DP test ...
  • I'm with you here. It's the same like "we don't need touchscreens, because they are for smartphone shooters, and not for photographers". Which, in my opinion, sounds ridiculous, because sometimes ...
  • Well, when compared in JPEG and Oly 12-50 vs Fuji 18-55, last one wins because of 1) better jpeg engine 2) Fuji 18-55 is way better lens, Oly 12-50 is mediocre, and also at f5.6 diffraction makes ...
  • Agree, both are great cameras, with their own strengths and weaknesses. I think Fuji is better for wide-normal-angle and portraiture, but Olympus excels in tele and overall performance. Yes, I miss ...
  • Right. Also depends on RAW converter a lot - Adobe is the worst scenario. I use Capture One for my Fuji RAW development (when I need it, rarely though), and I see less fine details (like bird's ...
  • Don't be fooled by fanboys and Fuji-insider reviewers, shouting "wow, what a fast camera and AF!" about X-T1. They did the same when X-E2 came out, and now X-E2 is a snail as they say. Just take a ...
  • Replied in Really?
    SaltLakeGuy makes some ridiculous statements all around the forum about Fuji - that it outperforms any FF-camera from Canon/Nikon, has better tracking capabilities and etc. Don't even bother try to ...
  • This is well known issue with Fuji 18-55 and OIS that blurs the images if not turned off at higher shutter speeds, there are couple of threads at this forum about this. All Canons, Sonys and ...
  • This maybe caused by couple of things: 1) You are way over diffraction limit, try not to close aperture more than f11. 2) If you have OIS switch at ON position with 18-55 lens, it tends to blur ...
  • Glad you like your X-T1, I didn't want to offend you, just to notice that tracking test at this focal length and aperture is not relevant to real world tracking we always mean. I'm still on the ...
