  • be they ducks or Hawks (the Red Arrows kind). Always like to see what you're shooting, Trevor.  Cheers...
  • may be the best value in m4/3s lenses across the entire line.  It is arguably the only 4/3s lens that made a seamless transition to m4/3s.  First, it is a kit lens, so you need to stop it down 1/2 ...
  • and in good or even fair light, the focus was spot on. Took a long time...1.5 - 2 seconds in lower light, but it was excellent.  In low/poor light, I always used manual focus at 5x.  I could tell ...
  • IF you get a good copy and IF you use it within its limitations.  Arguably, Olympus tried to make it do too many things:  internally focused, weather-resistant, dual-zoomed, near macro...and ...
  • Replied in Would be nice...
    but I doubt it.  Given the global state the digital photographic market and Olympus's struggles to deal with a small share of a shrinking market, I don't see the ROI.  I think the three-tier 4/3s ...
  • Trust me, there's no moral equivocation on their part! I bought LR thru my son, a college student. And just to prove that turnabout is fair play, our company offered a discount to employees ...
  • and I never take it off.  It adds very little to the size and weight and makes a world of difference in handling. Yup...it's expensive.  But the materials quality, fit and finish is...well...Really ...
  • An E-500 with a 14-54 MkI.  And when I use it, it reminds me of how much I like the advances in the E-M5 that I use 95% of the time.
  • My 14-54MkI was on the front of my E-M5 for over two years, only coming off only when I needed the extra width or speed of focus.  When those needs presented themselves, I switched to my 12-50...a ...
  • for preferring the 45.  I do a lot of family photography in living rooms/dens, etc.  In that setting, the 45 is excellent for that, although I recently bought the 12-40 -- so I'm looking forward ...
  • Many thanks for the photo and your thoughts.  My "small" kit is an E-M5 with the 12-50 carried separately.  Not exactly small... And you're right on dimensions not telling the whole story. The ...
  • of the RX versus the GM-5?  I can look at the size comparison, but I'd be interested in your perspective on how they work in your hand. It sounds to me like your RX is with you more often than the ...
  • I wish that were true, but the number of units manufactured has dropped for two or three years running, by almost everyone, and sales have dropped as well.  At the risk of being flamed for naming ...
  • nobody is doing very well.  Except, maybe Leica.  The halcyon decade of 2000-2010 is waaaay over.  I bought my E-M5 2 1/2 years ago and won't replace it for at least another 3 - 4 years, maybe ...
  • I think it was something on the order of.."but we're going to bring products to market on which we can make money..." This camera would be the Olympus equivalent of the Nikon DF.  Nikon can afford ...
  • I'm taking advantage of the current lens sale and putting my $900 down on a new 12-40.  You'll get no argument from me that the MkII doesn't have some significant advantages over the Mk I.  The ...
  • I have both and use both in different circumstances.  Both have strengths and limitations and both have learning curves.  I'm about to order my 12-40, but I'm keeping (for now) my 12-50.  The ...
  • If they sell, then Olympus is a genius.  It's going to be $1600 or more for that body, but if you've got the disposable income...why not?
  • for the 75-300, I don't know what is.  We keep hearing that 4/3s can't do BIFs.  Liar, liar, pants on fire! Great shots!
  • I think a LOT (maybe most) of the folks on this forum are in the same boat.  But we're all here because we're, at least in part, photgraphic gearheads.  Aside from still climbing the learning ...
