  • Zuiko, Olympus own lens brand, is much more high-end and has better reputation than any of the brands you mentioned. Beware of anything like re-branding of Zuiko lenses. I would say that Zuiko is ...
  • Replied in 2014 Elections
    Have you realized that this is an international forum with members from a lot if countries? And yes, I might take some photos an the election day september 14 here in my country.
  • The 12-40 and 40-150 is exactly what I have to my E-M5 and those two lenses fill all my needs. The 12-40 is one of the best lenses there is, of all cathegories and brands, and the 40-150 is ...
  • That's a view that I as a European wouldn't support. And remember that the "Americans" are people from most European countries, Africa and Latin America, and very few native Americans. The US is a ...
  • Replied in OM-1 or OM-5
    You'll never know of course until they announce it. I don't know anything else than I read on different rumour sites. And according to them there will be a silver E-M1 soon (to what use?) and ...
  • Replied in OM-1 or OM-5
    My E-M5 isn't sleepy at all. It's still a fantastic camera. It behaves exactly as when it was new two yeras ago, even better after a few FW upgrades. But I don't think I should buy one new today, ...
  • I had no intention to be provocative, I have no reason for that at all. I have never said you can do exactly the same things with a m4/3 as with an FF, of course you can't. I miss for instance TS ...
  • Per, I know it's easier to get a creamy bokeh with a larger sensor and that FF has an advantage in that field. I have nothing against FF. I just thought the alternatives in the poll are formulated ...
  • A friend happened to go through the ice down in a jåkk (samish for small river) when we were skiing in the mountains. He was wet all through and so was his Nikon F. Luckily we had enough dry ...
  • I sold my Sigma 19 when I bought my 12-40 and would never think of buying it again. It's not at all as sharp as the 12-40 at 19 mm, no faster and not very small either. If you shoot at f/8 you ...
  • I think it does. The three OMD:s are aimed at different users. E-M10 is the entrance model, no weather sealing, smallest body. EM-5 and E-M1 will as high-end bodies, I think (and hope), be ...
  • I couldn't check any of your boxes. The only one of them that is entirely sensor-size-related is the one about noise, but as this is only about 1,5 to two stops difference between FF and APS and ...
  • Very subjective selection. Nothing wrong with that. Here is my equally subjective selection: Olympus 12-40/2,8 pro. A standard zoom of highest quality, both regarding IQ and build. A must have if ...
  • Yes I have also some nice shots from the subway, from its run-down days in the late '80s, when all cars were bombed with graffiti. Probably cleaner and less exciting today but people riding are ...
  • I have visited NY many times but I haven't been there since more than ten years now. I love that city. I have tons of photos, mostly slides. There are interesting subjects everywhere. Just walk ...
  • I agree totally with what you say about mp3 and music, mp3 is a bad standard. But it's not the only digital sound standard, there are lots if good standards out there. According to your analogy ...
  • Replied in awards
    The EISA expert groups are formed by magazines writing in the field, not the industry itself. A quick check showed that for instance the chief editor of the Swedish magazine Foto is a member if ...
  • I think the 1/8 sec delay is annoying so I don't use although I have noticed that it works to reduce shutter shock in some situations. Mainly with light lenses. With the heavy 12-40 there's hardly ...
  • The best viewfinder ever for me was a Pentax slr OVF with both microprisms and split picture as focus help. Second is my EM-5 EVF. If it only had a little higher resolution it would have been the ...
  • If I'm not mistaken Olympus doesn't have the habit to announcing firmware upgrades in advance. So I wouldn't be too surprised if the AS 0 shows up in the next FW upgrade even if a representative ...
