On Hands-on with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 article (215 comments in total)

shutterbobby: Hi Andy--Did you happen to test with the 14-54 I lens? really would like to know if it can focus fairly quick on the E-M5

@shutterbobby:

Hi, how goes? To answer your question, I have personally tested the OM-D with my 14-54mm Mark I during a preview event, and from my observation, there is practically no difference in AF speed with the PEN E-P3. In dim lighting, the AF is really slow, but in good light, it focuses alright (1-2 seconds, give or take). I had better luck with my ZD 25mm pancake, which focuses really quickly even in low light (around 1/2 to 1 second), which I believe is due to it being CDAF compatible.

I'm afraid to say that the OM-D not being able to focus my legacy ZD lenses even at reasonable speeds is the reason why I will be skipping this one out. If you take mostly stills, and have no issues taking your time in getting the pic, it should be no bother to you.

Cheers,

Rob.

On Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera article (874 comments in total)

SeeRoy: "When is a camera more than a photographer’s tool? The answer is when it’s an object designed by Marc Newson..."

When is promotional drivel more than a load of old b0110x? See above.

Of course it must be acknowledged that most photographers' biggest desire has long been for a camera designed by Marc "Who He?" Newson. Preferably one without a viewfinder; in two-tone. Bliss.

I couldn't agree more with you man. Like Mescalamba, I personally felt like hurling when I saw this monstrosity (I am not joking, I really wanted to). Goes to show that some bloke who did work for museums and whatnot won't necessarily be able to design a half-decent looking camera. I wonder how Pentax could imagine trying to sell this lovely picture of ugliness (pun intended) just because it bears the name of a designer.

..........I could have fallen off my chair from laughing the moment I saw this. Pictures as wacky as this don't come everyday, and this now ranks as one of my all-time favorites. Cheers.
