  • The OP has an E-M1 listed in his sig.
  • I have a Manfrotto MKCOMPACT-LT, I think I paid $70 for it. 2lbs, 15" long closed, and 5ft fully open with center column. It supports my E-PM2 and smaller lenses just fine, but larger lenses ...
  • I would actually recommend trying to find an Oly MMF-3 for the 14-54 II - its weather sealed, as is the E-M1 and the 14-54 II zoom. If you have a sealed body and a sealed lens, it might be nice to ...
  • He said the 14-54 is the mkII version, which works reasonably well on m4/3 bodies - about as fast as the Panny 20mm when it comes to focusing. Not blistering by any means, but very sharp and ...
  • I wouldn't go so far as to say accident, but if you enter a turn too hot or on a wrong line, using the break properly can turn what was going to be a crap lap time into a presentable lap time. ...
  • Also consider looking at the E-M1. The main camera body is about the same size as the E-M5ii, but there's a reasonably substantial SLR style grip on the side. If you're considering getting a grip ...
  • Dynamic range and high ISO performance are highly correlated. It's usually the case that for each additional stop in ISO, you end up losing one stop of DR - in which case, a good base level of DR ...
  • Replied in Sensor size
    Given your use case, I'd recommend looking at a Panasonic GM1/GF7 (essentially the same camera) as well. The Ricoh is a fine camera, but you may find having just a 28mm lens limiting, and cropping ...
  • The Olympus XZ-1 was a great camera - impeccable handling, beautifully sharp lens with built in 3-stop ND to take advantage of its f/1.8 aperture, and nice build quality, all let down by a s*** ...
  • I have both, I use both, I love both. However, I rarely use both at the same time. PL25 - Good all in one lens. If I need low light, or I want to isolate subjects (portraiture), or I want to get ...
  • Replied in GM5 vs RX 100
    If I were only to pair it with a 12-32, then maybe the RX100 might be a consideration. But then if I wanted to pair it with a 15mm, then I should get a Ricoh GR as well, right? And if I wanted to ...
  • Replied in Thx All
    If she's starting out in realty, it might be in her best interest to learn how/what to shoot, anyway. A wide angle point and shoot is probably fine to start with, but if she's doing this realty ...
  • Unless there's something I'm missing, whoever taught you that ISO rule had it backwards. Higher ISO = more sensitive, better for lower light and for using a faster shutter. Has been this way ...
  • Panny 12-32 for b-roll shooting. Allows flexibility in focal length, small, good sharpness. Not good if you're doing manual focusing, in which case I'd recommend the Panny 14mm. Either option can ...
  • If you don't like zooming in, don't get a telephoto zoom. The 40-150 is a great value, but it'll likely still be there for $119 when you need it. I would say, based on your budget as well as what ...
  • The FZ1000 is a bit bigger, but a much better option than the G3x based on the information I've heard so far. For one, the G3x doesn't include a viewfinder, which is definitely nice at longer ...
  • Not sure 1" sensors will ever get there with regards to being 'good enough,' and I'll explain why. Look at the Panasonic GM1, GM5, and the Oly Pens, in particular the E-PM1 and E-PM2. The Pens are ...
  • Sure, I'll bite. What's more fun than playing devil's advocate while at work? Yes, camera makers are stupid. Camera makers right now are in the same place as the big-three auto makers in the ...
  • Panasonic GM5 might be up your alley. Deck of cards sized body, but the pancake lens it comes with is a 24-64mm equivalent. However, overlooking that, the camera has a built in EVF and is manually ...
  • I said what I said based on a few assumptions. When I say 'decent' shots, I'm personally thinking that you should be able to print out an image at 8" x 10" and have it look good. If your standard ...
