Jon Schick's recent activity

  • An excellent suggestion - I have a 14-54 (ii in my case, also mostly welded to my E-1) and the Lumix 12-32.  Great combination and much cheaper than the new fast m43 lenses.
  • Thanks for your note... Now sold but hope you are successful tracking one down. Jon

    She is a lovely cat (although I'm biased towards my own....a future post....).  One of the reasons for posting though was to illustrate that you can get a decent ISO800 shot out of the E-1 with ...
  • A variety from last weekend (E-1): Devil's Dyke Devil's Dyke (with bugs not sensor dust!) Calm after the storm.... Cheers, Jon

    My GF's cat, posing for the E-1 last week:
  • It does.  It also knows the focal length of my Zuiko 14-54 and Sigma primes.  But I need to input for my old SMCM and  SMCA lenses :-)
  • The camera does automatically revert to IBIS when OIS is not detected.  And like Pentax, it automatically prompts you to input the correct focal length. Jon
  • I find the GX-7 much easier to live with than the EM-5.  I found the menu system and fiddly controls of the Oly got in the way of my photography, but acknowledge it is a great camera if those ...
  • No need to instruct me to enjoy the E-1!  This is my third, and it remains my favourite dSLR bar none, regardless of how much more capable modern gear might be.  It was the first dSLR I purchased ...
  • .....I decided to go up the ISO scale (a bit) when using my E-1 over the past few days after seeing Jarrod's recent post.  I was surprised at how usable the images are when processed with modern ...
  • I used to own both and did compare them at the time.  In terms of image sharpness/contrast etc they were surprisingly close although the Zuiko is arguably better in terms of overall ...
  • Replied in classic v fast
    Indeed - there's a lot more to pleasing images than sharpness. We've got used to digital cameras giving a level of sharpness that frankly isn't realistic compared to the way we normally view ...
  • Yes it is, and as long as you don't crop much (ie work harder to get the shot right when you take it) it is more than capable of printing up to quite decent sizes, especially with the help of good ...
  • I reached the same conclusion recently - shots from the E-1 were instantly recognisable on my computer screen and some of the best prints around the house were made with that camera.  That's why I ...
  • A couple of snaps from yesterday afternoon's walk around Sydenham Hill woods.  I was using the 12-32 for the first time, plus the electronic shutter which is uncannily quiet!
  • I set my GX7 to show the shooting info on the rear screen so I can glance at it a little like I might check a top LCD on a dSLR (I tend to use it almost exclusively in M mode), and use the EVF ...
  • To be honest I don't think I'd recommend any crop sensor camera if your main intention is to use adapted 35mm lenses.  The size of larger SLR lenses with an adapter negates the rationale of ...
  • Oly E-1 with a couple of 43 lenses (14-54ii, 40-150) GX-7 and GF-1 with quite a few m43 lenses Fuji X20 P&S which may well be sold to help towards a GM-1 at some point.  I suspect with the latter, ...
  • Replied in E-3 to K5iis
    Enjoy... one amendment to your note is that all K mount lenses will fit, except those manufactured with a "Ricoh pin" which needs to be removed and then all is well with those too. You're not a ...
  • Replied in Thank you
    Thanks for starting this thread - I've been pretty dubious about going up the ISO scale with my E-1 and generally try and keep to ISO 100 or 200.  I don't have extended ISO switched on so my ...
