  • Replied in Selling lenses
    ditto:  I never expect to make money or even break even on a lens.  They are like cars - they depreciate the moment you drive them off the lot.  But if I have a lens that no longer meets my needs, ...
  • Perfect little bag for m43 and up to 4 lenses.  The top zip opening makes it easy to exchange lenses.  You can wear it over the shoulder or with a belt or both.   Reasonalby light, water proof, ...
  • Actually, you might find the camera does a better job converting an image than you can. This is a blogger I followed in my Sony DSLR days. http://friedmanarchives.blogspot.com/2012/08/where-anti-jp ...
  • I agree.   I never understood why there were so many consumer grade zoom options, but nothing in the mid-tier level.  I would think a 12-60 f2.8-4 that weighs in at 300 grams or less would be a ...
  • Even though you've gotten beat up a bit here, I do understand what you are saying. I think the perceived tone got the tribe up in arms a bit, though. I've got the e-m5 and the 12-40. The 12-40 is ...
  • That is a valid criticism.  I'm testing DxO out now on trial and working on a folder with 600 RAW files.   600 is not a huge number, but you do have to wait until the all the thumbnails are ...
  • I don't own tthe em-1 but as I said in a thread a week ago, I find DxO produces better results by default.  The images are cleaner and sharper, more pop.   I can get there with LR, but it takes ...
  • Created discussions LR user tried out DXO
    Not sure if this is of any interest but... I've been using Lightroom for several years, and prior to that Bibble. I decided to download a trial of DXO and test it out. It's been several years since ...
  • I ask myself this question as well.   I'm tempted by the Sony A7, very tempted.  However when I look at the lens reviews, I'm not overly impressed.   M43 have such great lenses with corner to ...
  • But when I do use it, wow, sweet lens.
  • I own all three 9-18mm, 12mm, 12-40mm. A few weeks back I posted a comparision of the three (very unscientific): http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53641495 In my mind they are all very close - ...
  • Yep, the 9-18mm is great little lens.  155 grams in a quality UWA zoom.   I have an A3 sized print in my office taken with the 9-18, and hardly a day goes by where I don't have somebody commenting ...
  • I go with the idea that em1 replaced the em5. The em5 when it came out cost $1,100.   If they come out mkII em5, it will undoubtly cost similar.   Might as well buy the em1.   To me having the em1 ...
  • I had the 12-50mm lens and as a close up/people it was acceptable.   As a landscape lens, it was terrible.   Much too soft.   User reviewes are all over the place on the 12-50.  Some seem to like ...
  • Every review I've seen on the 9-18 gives it almost glowing reviews: SLR Gear, EPhotozine, Photozone, DPReview all say the 9-18mm is very good.   They mostly say there's very little difference in ...
  • I'm a bit in the same boat. I just bought the 12-40mm. I also have the 9-18mm 12mm, PL25mm, Oly 45mm and the 75mm. The 12-40mm is a comparitively heavy feeling on my em5, so I debate to myself ...
  • The only migration I'm seeing is to phones.   I hardly ever see anybody using an ILC camera any more, and it's usually a DSLR.  I can't remember the last time I saw anyone, but me, walking around ...
  • Yep, I agree.  This whole my camera is better than your camera thing sometimes boarders on silly.  Every modern camera these days is capable of taking outstanding pics.  Chooose the system that ...
  • Replied in No.
    I don't think any of the reviews actually say it's soft at 40mm. Rather it's less sharp at 40mm than at the other focal lengths wide open, but still very good. As was said elsewhere, that's ...
  • I'm not disagreeing with what you say, but my point is, most everyone is going to be viewing pics in similar circumstances so for most sRGB is the best option. I'm using a new, fairly exponsive ...
