  • Appreciate the responses following my post.  I was bracing for half of them to be flames in response to perceived criticism of Oly or m43 (which was not my intent), but instead got thoughtful and ...
  • My mistake. I thought the EM1 inherited the same sensor (with tweaks) from the EM5, but it's from a different manufacturer. Perhaps it was the comparable image quality noted in the reviews and ...
  • Created discussions No New Sensor Since EM5???
    I've had the EM5 since it first became available over two years ago.  Great combination of IQ and size, and a nice alternative when my 5D3 is too big, heavy, or conspicuous for the occasion.  I ...
  • I don't have the Sigma 35, but do have the old Canon 35 1.4L. It's actually been sitting on my shelf for a while; I tend to use the 70-200 2.8 II for close-ups, or go even wider with the 16-35 ...
  • Thanks.  Appreciate the kind words.  Will follow up with some wide open shots, maybe this weekend.
  • I did . . . but at f/1.4, the DOF is so thin, it was hard to get both eyes fully in focus unless they were both perfectly aligned along the same focal plane.  The shots at f/2.8 seemed to hit the ...
  • I put my new lens through its paces (on a 5D3) stalking the family cat.  The lens passes the cat test, I think.  :)
  • Because I don't have one yet!  Pre-ordered in April on both B&H and Amazon a few days after announcement, and still getting emails saying don't know when it'll be in stock.  Missed using it on a ...
  • No need to be so suspicious or defensive of m43. Yes, I got both the 5D3 and EM5 around the same time, but there's logical or technological reason I should feel the need to upgrade both at the ...
  • Created discussions EM5 Replacement This Year?
    Any idea when is the EM5 Mark II is coming out? Haven't read much here or elsewhere about an EM5 successor since the EM10 came out. Been shooting with an EM5 since release. It's my potent ...
  • Created discussions Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art Shipping?
    I pre-ordered from both B&H and Amazon last month.  No signs of life from either so far.  Anyone else have one from either retailer already?
  • Replied in Thanks so much!
    Really thoughtful, balanced, and helpful comparative review.  (I also appreciate knowing which camera would make a better weapon in case of attack!) Thanks for the informed perspective.
