  • The real reason why the price is lower is economics 101: Supply vs Demand. There is a much larger supply of O17 lenses available than there are P15. The O17 has been on sale for years, and has been ...
  • It's absolutely the truth. All they hear about is Canon or Nikon, all they see are pros using Canon and Nikon, and so they go out and buy a Canon or Nikon. They likely never change the lens from ...
  • I agree with the frustration around the lack of marketing of the m43 system here in the US, and the absence of Panasonic and Olympus photography equipment in your major stores (Best Buy, Walmart, ...
  • Replied in 25 mm
    I had the Oly 25mm, and sold it to buy a 17mm. While the 25mm is sharper, 50mm eqv. FoV is noticeably tighter than 35mm eqv. FoV. Every time I would use the 25mm, I would wish it was just a little ...
  • According to camerasize.com, the 15/1.7 from Panasonic has a diameter of 57.5mm, a length of 36mm, and weighs 115 grams. The 17/1.8 from Olympus has a diameter of 57.5mm, a length of 35.5mm, and ...
  • Yay. Excellent build quality, IQ was far better than I was expecting based on all the "it's a soft lens" reviews out there, and the FoV is perfect for general street photography. Also, the AF is ...
  • I agree, these photos are fantastic! I was in the same boat as you, thinking about the G7X (I have an S110), and while the larger sensor and brighter lens definitely are appealing, I get very ...
  • There is a Sony store in Shanghai, on the Puxi side of the river. Take the metro line 2 and get off at the East Nanjing Rd stop. The Sony store is on the main road you would take walking down to ...
  • Gotta love thread hijackers, amiright?
  • If 12mm is wide enough for you (I know it is for me on my 12-35), then I would sell the 12mm & 12-32, and buy the 12-40 (and possibly sell the 45mm too depending on how much you use it for ...
  • I was replaying to the person who said they were "thinking of upgrading my S95 to the S120". But yes I agree that the max aperture on the tele end of the S-series cameras does leave a lot to be ...
  • Thank you. OK so I can lock the exposure and take X number of images at the same exposure (useful for stitching panoramas together). It's a pain that I can't take my finger off the shutter, but I ...
  • If you're considering the S120, why not consider the S110? The S120 has basically the same lens (1/3 stop fast throughout the range), a slightly newer processor, and better resolution screen, and ...
  • Created discussions A question for S120 Owners
    When locking exposure (half press shutter and press up on the 4-way pad), does the exposure remain locked even after taking a photo, or does that exposure lock only last for that one image? I ...
  • The 12-40 is sharper than the 16-70, and is a stop faster. The sensor in the a6000 is likely about a stop better in terms of high ISO noise, so it's a wash there (shooting the 12-40 @ ISO1600 ...
  • Seriously, every thread where somebody asks about some other system compared to m43 turns in to a giant p*ssing match. Are people really that blind that they can't realize the benefits of other ...
  • It is nice to be able to reprogram the video record button, especially since there is a dedicated video mode on the dial. You could program the video button for either AE or AF lock, and the Ring ...
  • Yes, in the manual it says that as long as "*" is displayed, the exposure is locked. My S110 works the same way, and yes you can recompose, refocus, and shoot while maintaining the locked exposure. ...
  • Having said all of this, you even said it yourself that very rarely do you ever do large prints, most of the time you're doing 8"x10" prints or web viewing. a m43 camera (particularly one as good ...
  • The SEL1670Z is a good lens, but it's not "great" in the same way that the Olympus 12-40 is. The sensor in the a6000 is so damn good though, that paired with the SEL1018, I don't know what else ...
