Great set, particularly liked #3 and #13

Well, if there's one good thing to come from this it's that more people are now aware of Joel... I'd never come across his work until now.

There's some sour people out there, I'll bet that most of you would love to be presented with a scene like that!

Well done to Tony for being in the right place at the right time and having the knowledge and skill to be able capture a stunning image like that!

StefanD: Darn... I just sold my Canon 70-200 4.0L to exchange it with the Olympus 35-100 2.0 only to find out that that beast weighs 2 times as much :-(

the 35-100 2.0 was for four-thirds DSLRs, not micro four-thirds...

straylightrun: Why is there no IBIS?

I'm not an expert but the usual answer is that 4K video produces a lot of heat and the heatsink required is too large for IBIS to move efficiently...

Guess I'm not cool enough for this as I want a bag that fits my gear, not my lifestyle! My current bag may be bland but is about half that size and I can already fit 2 m43 bodies and 4 lenses in it...

I really enjoyed this set Steve, perhaps I'm 'devoid of personality' too but these are the sort of shots I aim for... keep up the good work!

What an awesome set, and thoroughly deserving of more positive comments than have so far been made!

Franz Weber: Why does nobody make a 12-50mm 2.8-4.0 lens?

Bjorn, are you using an EM1? Only that camera has PDAF for 4/3 lenses.

In reply to:

Photomonkey: Here is the FF Olympus we've been waiting for. ;)

Mike, you seem to be under the impression that sensor size is the only reason to choose a format... for me lens size is more important as I like to take a selection of lenses with me when I go out.

Yes, image quality will be better on new APSC or FF sensors but my personal 'acceptable image quality barrier' was crossed with the ancient 12mp Olympus sensors so from here on in things are just getting better and better...

In reply to:

madeinlisboa: What a lottery competitions are. It depends whether judges awake to their left or right side or they just flip a coin? I feel so demotivated to enter in competitions because I can't understand what is going on their heads, honestly...

As someone who's just entered their first competition I can wholeheartedly agree.

It was like training for and running a marathon, then after the race being told it was actually a sprint and you ran the first 100m really slowly...

On Olympus PEN E-PL7 First Impressions Review preview (503 comments in total)
In reply to:

Mike FL: Most, if not all, M43 cameras are unable to compete with cheapest mirror-less APS-C such as $450 Fuji XA1 and $500 Fujifilm X-M1 in IQ.

BUT, Most, if not all, M43 cameras has IBIS which keeps M43 still alive.

If Fuji and/or Sony put IBIS in mirror-less APS-C, M43 will be DOOMED. The day will come...

Mike FL, I don't care what MOST people are buying, I buy what works for ME...

In reply to:

micksh6: No optional large grip (like the $20 MCG-2 available for E-P3, E-PL5, EPL6) = no buy.

E-P3 with large grip had perfect handling, only sensor was poor. E-P5 was already downgrade because of its small irreplaceable grip. Even E-PL5 was better. And now this is step back from E-PL5/6. When will they learn?

Absolutely... I know the official line is that's where the WiFi transmitter goes but surely they could find somewhere else on the body!

Repeat after me "IQ is not everything!"... I'm still using the EP3 with the "ancient" 12mp sensor and a GX1... still happy with the results.

APS-C cameras will never be able to compete with M43 lens sizes and as I carry more lenses than bodies they make up most of the bulk.

I sometimes find it quite depressing when the equivalence article gets 1,600+ comments while awesome shots like this only get 30... excellent work Erez, let's see more shots like this!
