  • While its not a particularly "good " commercial , on the full spectrum of "stupid" commercials it  doesn't even get honorable mention ;) And i don't even watch that much television .
  • Replied in pricing
    In the four third lens line up, the HG lenses were reasonably priced for the enthusiast to aspire to. The SHG lenses were,  for me, at least only a dream, in case I won the lottery. The current PRO ...
  • Another +1 For the few times I would actually use a FE lens, that Samyang is looking pretty good. Or maybe I'll also get the body cap lens....
  • I found a FL36R on the for sale forum for $80. On the EM-1 it works fine on  the hot shoe and as a wireless slave with TTL using the small   included flash as the command unit. . It won't work as ...
  • Replied in EVF !
    Before getting the the EM-1, I used Canon film SLRs and Olympus DSLRs. I resisted getting into MFT cameras because I did not think I could adapt to an EVF after using optical finders for so long, ...
  • People watch the countless crime shows where complete strangers routinely commit unspeakable acts , and hatch complex conspiracies against unsuspecting innocents, until the hero can bring them ...
  • Replied in Quite bizarre
    I have never heard or read anything that would indicate that photographing children at sporting event is some kind of precursor or " gateway event" leading to child abuse. The whole idea is simply ...
  • The Kippon EF to MFT AF adapter is supposed to list at $285, a used Canon EF 85mm 1.8 sells on KEH for $313. At $598 for both you are pretty close to prices for an Olympus 75mm 1.8  I've seen on EBay.
  • Sounds fine to me. I'd be happy to buy MFT lenses from canon if they had something I wanted. Canon is known to make some very nice lenses. Besides it adds a dose of legitimacy to MFT, for those who ...
  • Thanks for the comments. The small "flowers" in the lower right corner I believe are dogwood trees. These are quite tall evergreens, I was probably 30-40 yards away.
  • All taken with an EM-1 and the 50-200
  • Replied in Miscellaneous
    Very nice collection. The Sigma 105 seems to really well. I have the lens but rarely use it except in a housing underwater. Apparently it needs to get out more
  • Your réponse summed things pretty well. I guess I didn't make clear I didn't want to duplicate the FL's of the 12-40, so  I did not consider 45mm or the 25mm. ( know myself well enough  that I am ...
  • The 14-54 will work just great on the EM-1, as will the 40-150. Neither will focus particularly fast on th EM-10. I have bought quite a bit from KEH and they are a very reputable company. I can't ...
  • That's a good point, but I guess I'm guilty of convoluted planning. If I were to get the 60mm macro, I would have a decent portrait lens capable of excellent 1:1 macro. I could sell the 50mm since ...
  • The AF speed is another problem. The 50 is a nice sharp lens, but hunts quite abit. Even in the E30 it was not fast to focus . I don't believe it's worse on the EM-1, but certainly no better.
  • On my EM-1 I have the 12-40 as an everyday lens. Everything else is FT lenses used with the adapter. I'm considering getting either the 60mm macro or the 75 1.8. I don't really need the macro as I ...
  • I saw an EM 10 sell on EBay for less than $400, if you are comfortable with used gear. You could also consider the EM-1, they are going used in the $700-800 range. Many  think the EM-1 is still ...
  • Replied in primes vs zooms?
    if you don't mind changing lenses , then getting the prime focal lengths that are covered by the 12-40 and selling the zoom makes sense. I prefer zooms ,  so I sold my 17mm 1.8 after I got the ...
  • Your experience with the heavier lenses is good to know. I have been carrying the 50-200, with and without the EC 14, just as you described , strap on the camera, lens hanging off the body. ...
