  • that includes a flask for up to four ounces of the appropriate beverage to...uh...enhance the quality of the coffee you've just brewed. I do SOOO love threads like this.
  • is pretty much spot on.  There will be some times when the new 40-150/2.8 is "too much of a good thing."  The older SG m4/3s variant, stopped down 1/2 stop across its range, is really excellent. I ...
  • That's kind of what I was thinking, but I really wanted a "been there" perspective.  I hope you're right on making up.  My guess is they'll fly the Vulcan as much as they can in 2015 before it's ...
  • Trevor...love your photos.  Sitting here in Phoenix, Arizona, wishing I could get to at least one British airshow.  Well, maybe there's a way.  My wife said, "Pick one airshow..."  So...if I could ...
  • The E-M10's feature set is more up-to-date than the 5's:  wifi, focus peaking, TruPic VII.  Ergonomics are improved by most accounts over the 5.  It's also a bit smaller. However, the build quality ...
  • I think there are only two areas where you'll definitely see a difference.  The first is the growth of the sensor to about 20 mP.  I know...that's not a significant improvment and that is more a ...
  • My E-M5 has a 14-54MkI on the front 80% of the time.  If I need more width or faster autofocus, I have a 12-50.  The 12-25 range on my copy of the 12-50 is excellent, so not a big deal for me.  ...
  • huh?  What does that have to do with it?  I've lived in Arizona for over 30 years and every one of my lenses has a UV or hardened clear glass filter.  The air around here is like sandpaper, and if ...
  • and John...thanks for the review.  What I really want is the 12-40 for my E-M5.  Given the costs of our daughter's impending wedding and another year of college expenses for our son, that's not ...
  • I'm really happy with mine, and personally really only want the VF-4, TruPic VII, and improvement of the Review and F1 buttons.  Leave the general design the same.  I like the abiility to work ...
  • and notwithstanding its ISO limitations, that sensor and the original TruPic engine really did bring life to Paul Simon's description of Kodachrome.  That's one of the reasons I can't quite bring ...
  • A 12-50/2.8-40, like the patent that Olympus already has, would be an excellent SG replacement for the current Olympus lens with that range.
  • For me, glass is almost always the better investment.  I'm saving for the 12-40.  I'd really like to have a small carry-eveywhere camera, but my dollars are limited so I'm putting them where my ...
  • Started on my C5050, progressed to my E330, and now on my E-M5.  The screen stays within the body of the camera which (for me) makes it much easier to manage.  You give up the selfie and the view ...
  • College tuition costs...the price of an upcoming wedding...retirement planning.  Your point is well taken though.  Life has a way of moderating one's GAS, and forces you to separate "want" from ...
  • I used and loved my E-330 for years before getting my EM5.  GX-7 is very similar in design, although a LOT smaller and obviously much more capable. Pany's got some really great stuff out there - ...
  • Makes pretty good sense in my book.  The Sony RX-100 series has really raised the bar on the size + features equation.  The GX-7 is an excellent camera, but it is definitely larger than the GM-1, ...
  • Simply and eloquently done, Roel.  Your photos really do convey powerful images.  Your use of shadow and reflection are elegant, but ironically, I was drawn to the last photo.  Look at the ...
  • It's not the Sony grip or Richard Franiac's...
  • Replied in Photokina 2016
    I can see this possibly on the successor to the E-M1, which could appear at Photokina 2016.  That would be about right in terms of the next generation of high-level OMD's.
