Dr Hal's recent activity

  • I have the 20mm 1.7 and love it.  I traded it once for the 25mm 1.4 and found that I really missed the 20mm focal length.  A wonderful lens that does not break the bank.  I ALWAYS take it with me ...
  • Replied in My two favorites
    Two favorite cameras. 1.  Kodak Retina IIIC...My Dad bought it for me when I was 13 years old.  It was a small beautifully made 35mm rangefinder camera.  It had a 50mm 2.0 lens and it folded back ...
  • I want to enjoy my hobby.  My first "good"camera was a Kodak Retina IIIC.  My Dad bought it for me when I was 13 years old in 1956.  I still have it and it is in good working order.  It was a ...
  • Replied in Dumb post
    Obviously trying to stir up controversy.  Buy what you want and think you need.  You know that we are not going to convince you either way nor do we want to convince you.  Different strokes for ...
  • You are right, there is no reason that I can think of to own both.  I bought the 25mm because there were so many rave reviews on this forum.  My excuse for buying it was when I gave my 20mm away ...
  • The Panasonic menu system is so superior to the labyrinth that is the Olympus menu system.  I liked my Olympus EM 5 but never enjoyed the menu system.  It usually was not an issue but it was an ...
  • I presently have the GM1 and GX7.  One of them always has the 20mm on it.  It is just a great lens.  Several years ago, when I gave my GF1 to my grandson, I gave him the 20mm with the camera.  I ...
  • Last week, one of my patient's told me that one of the reasons he enjoys coming to my office is he enjoys seeing all the pictures that I have on the walls.  This lead to a discussion about ...
  • I had the 9-18 and sold it because it was so limited.  People looked distorted most of the time and I was constantly changing lenses.  My 12 - 35 can stay on my camera 90% of the time and if I ...
  • I love the 12-35.  It is an excellent lens.  I also have the 12-32 lens that came with my GM1.  In good light is also unexpectedly a very good lens.  I use these two lenses most of the time when I ...
  • When I was in Alaska, I used three lenses almost all of the time, even though I had taken others.  I used mostly the 14-140II, the 12-35 2.i, and for inside and poor light the 20mm 1.7.  I do not ...
  • Replied in Relevance?
    You are the one bringing up the stupid argument.  This is the M43 forum and 90% of the people told him to do whatever he wanted.  I love M43.  It allows me to enjoy photography again.  I am 72 ...
  • Just got back from a trip where I took my 14-140II, 12-32, and 20mm1.7 with my GX7.  I used only the 14-140 most of the time and the 20mm for indoors and lower light situations.  Never got to the ...
  • Obviously, you are more comfortable using the Nikon gear.  That is what you should use.  I use M43 because I enjoy it.  Sounds silly, but it really does make me happy.  I sold all of my Canon gear ...
  • I do not use the panoramic mode in my camera but I do use software for my panoramic pictures.  I hate changing lenses and the wide angle lenses are so specific that they are not practical when I ...

    Love it, thanks for posting. Hal
  • Both are wonderful little cameras but the menu system on my GX7 is light years better than the Olympus labyrinth on my EM5.  The IQ is the same on both cameras and I find the GX7 is the most ...
  • I have had the GX7 since it first came out.  It is truly a great little camera.  The 20mm 1.7 lens is just perfect on it.  It is basically the same field of view as you see.  Whenever I go out to ...
  • Your beautiful pictures from the Denver Zoo remind me of a trip I took 2 years ago to the San Diego Zoo.  It was a week after I had emergency Gall Bladder surgery and I wanted to travel as lightly ...
