  • One relatively straightforward test is to take a picture of a static object at various shutter speeds on a sturdy tripod. Everyone seems to agree that there will be no shutter shock at, say, ...
  • I notice you have a Canon G7X.  How does it compare to the XZ-2 in IQ (sharpness and noise)  at low (100) and high (800) ISOs?
  • The curious thing is that this is based on a talk to be given at a semiconductor conference with the authors listed as being from Olympus.  I had not known that Olympus did semiconductor ...

    LCD users should note that the LCD brightness adjustment (-7 to +7 on the E-PL7) makes a considerable difference in its visibility in bright light.   I set it to +7 in bright sunlight to good ...
  • As you suggest, anyone reaching 50, or at the latest 60, is going to have trouble with accommodation to varying distances. This is called presbyopia. There are two eyeglass solutions to this ...
  • I don't like to pick nits, but do wish to point out that two-handed holding does not necessarily mean the left hand under the lens.  With my lenses, all of which are small, my left hand is on the ...
  • My point is that neither can be considered very portable.  And further, that if one chooses a large lens for whatever reason, it will handle better on a proportionally larger body.
  • I agree that for pocketing, fixed lens cameras are the solution.  My version is an Olympus XZ-2 with the petal lenscap.  It has a fast versatile zoom and is far more pocketable than a GM1 with the ...
  • My question is: What is the point of using a tiny body on larger lenses?  Although some of you are able to hold the lens and treat the body like a filter, why do this when a larger body is easier ...
  • Don't fail to consider the EPL-7.  Each of has his ergonometric favorite.  The EPL-7 is perfect for me; the GM1 and the GM5 (which I rented) are too small and fussy.  I use several Panasonic ...
  • Didn't you mean wider than the 17mm"?  I find the 15mm the widest I can leave on and still handle just about anything that comes up.  If had to cut back to only two lenses, they would be the Pany ...
  • Anyone who likes the E-PL7 presumably composes using the LCD except for rare occasions with an accessory EVF. (I don't even own one.) In this case, the four way controller is instantly accessible ...
  • I often use immediate LCD review to determine sharpness due to focus and/or camera motion.  To do this I click the playback magnification on my E-PL7 up to 14X.  I cannot see any difference in ...
  • An important issue will be the IQ with the new 1" sensor.  Admittedly there is a one stop size advantage to m43, but improved technology might reduce the difference.  This technology might later ...
  • The new Panasonic 42.5mm f/1.7 has Power OIS, which is better than Mega OIS.  I have convinced myself that the 3-axis IBIS in my E-PL7 (the same as in your E-M10) is better than Mega OIS, I think ...
  • Possibly a new m43 size sensor will be revealed on a new video camera on April 13 at NAB, and possibly that sensor will appear in a new regular m43 camera later in the year.  Panasonic is among the ...
  • Maybe m43 models will split into two lines, one for resolution at low ISO and one for speed at high ISO such as Canon FF (5DS, 50.2mp and 5DIII, 22.1mp) and Sony FF (A7II, 24mp and A7S, 12mp).
  • I think the E-PL7 is a great camera and I have never taken a selfie. Some of us like a small discreet camera which takes pictures of the same quality as an E-M1 or GH4. If an EVF is made big ...
  • If you can detect the difference between 77 llpm and 71 lpmm you are a great optician and I defer to you.
  • You seem to be hung up on LensTip's use of English language adjectives. In their test of the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 at f/4.0: Center 73 lpmm  "sensational" Edge  64 lpmm  "excellent" In their test of ...
