  • Just a remark. Basically the Japanese market aims with the screen, so an EVFless camera allows some $ 200 savings. I too would be sorry to see the E-PMx series discontinued, but it is one of the ...
  • Do you realize that the PL7 is a most important camera for Olympus? In Japan the PLx is the Top Seller in mirrorless, followed by Sony. The GM2 might exactly aim at being the top dog there.
  • I fully agree, but for some it will always be counterintuitive. m4/3 is scalable , meaning you can put the same sensor in different body sizes. For general photography it makes sense to have the ...
  • The market decides one year later what models can survive, starting from Japan. Probably the other m4/3 tiers are better covered by Olympus. OTH GM2 could be slightly bigger. Lack of physical ...
  • I couldn't have put it better. The histogram is more the engineer's point of view on the general distribution of tones. But it's only with WYSIWYG that you get into the (aestethic) composition of ...
  • I don't have a Panny camera, but unless you do something special (Preview?) you'll never see the action of the *Aperture* in the VF in a mirrorless because the camera will compensate automatically ...
  • Replied in Oly 17/2.8
    I use the 17/2.8 on the E-PM2, and the 19/2.8 on the E-M5 for more dedicated tasks. They seem redundant but stealth and/or resolution are my main factors. 2.8 is not, since O latest sensor's ...
  • Thank you. The second part is more taxing than the first, since I had to quote Bergmann's images, that are not selected to please, but to explain. But if one has the patience, the reward will be a ...
  • And this is instalment n. 2, dealing with the end of the expedition and the Egyptology dealings, ending with the 'Black Genesis' hypothesis: http://amalric2014.blogspot.it/2014/08/adventures-in-wes ...
  • from the Noob, to the Enthusiast, to the knowledgeable Photographier, and the socially conscious one, to the Artist - it is like a Pyramid. The only thing being shared is a camera and some ...
  • Not to advertise it, but in my blog I try to keep a balance between art and gear, notably enquiring on past and present photography. It's not a forum yet, perhaps in the future. As for pure forums ...
  • Yes, this is usually the inner working of the firm, usually. These are slack years however - the doldrums - since camera sales have dropped globally by 20% a year in the last two, so you can ...
  • For the Logic of the Argument, or are you so thick to consider everything so personal, to think that you have the right to calumniate me, by telling the group that I write under another name? Fault ...
  • What stimulates one is important, whatever it is. However if we discuss rules, one must remind the classical ones, from HCB: "50mm corresponds to a certain vision and at the same time has enough ...
  • No, I didn't, learn to follow a thread, before smearing.
  • Are you referring to someone in particular? My considered opinion is that using  zoom like a main lens, complicates composition in depth, and I will stick to it.
  • Yes, that is correct. But so is the consideration that today the pendulum has swung again in Mirrorless, where primes are more important than zooms - at least for photogs. in the know.
  • Pity that I added that tele zooms were a good buy even in the distant 1970s. But what do I know about canyon shooters, and Disneyland shooters.
  • Midbrows will be midbrows. By different perspective i mean that the zoom selects a different segment of the same perspective, but the result is still you don't know how objects are going to be in ...
  • At the end of the 1970s SLR users were a much smaller proportion than other camera users, thus they were more knowledgeable. A 'normal' zoom was considered a device for tourists, since they were ...
