  • Get the whole GM1 kit, if you decide to go along. I think if you keep the EM-10 body, the size difference of the lens won't be noticed. GM1+12-32 on the other hand will be a considerable ...
  • Replied in Panasonic G7
    I would go to the G7. It has DFD for improved continuous autofocus and thePanasonic menues are supposedly easier, too.
  • No that would be in the 135 (Full Frame) system. In APS-C it should be something like 18-180. To the OP: To find the APS equivalent you need onlyy to multiply the M43 focal length with 4/3. That ...
  • I disliked the rocker zoom switch of the EM-10 tremendously. I actually bought the GM1 with the Panasonic pancake lens instead, because I didn't want to compromise on the size too much.
  • Replied in Advantage?
    Even forgetting about all the implications of ownership of pictures, privacy in the age of facial recognition etc. What's the advantage really? Storing a couple of TB locally is easy and cheap ...
  • Yes the Panasonic zoom is nicer to use (and starts at 12 mm!). Buying the EM-10 body only and the lens separately is just much more expensive. OTOH, it's worth investing some more money into ...
  • I had the chance to try out the EM-10 for a few hours and I couldn't get used to the rocker zoom switch. Zooming with such a switch is the worst thing about most compact cameras, IMO. So I would ...
  • I think Panasonic has done a lot right in the recent past. The 12 - 32 for example. Small, good quality, starting at 12 (unique in this price range!), manual zoom. Supplemented well by the 35 - 100. ...
  • The GX7 has dials to directly control all exposure settings as well. With the 15mm lens it even has an separate aperture control. It just doesn't have one wheel dedicated to one thing and it ...
  • If it's a case of the strap failing when it gets caught, e.g. on a door handle, it's probably better than the padeye being ripped out of the camera body. The weakness of the straps might have ...
  • Replied in Get the 12 - 32
    I would also recommend getting a zoom. It lets you try out different focal length. The 12-32 is great because of the 12 mm wide end, it's as small as the primes and the manual zoom is nicer than ...
  • Replied in GM1 works great
    The opinions on cameras are always subjective even if written as they were objective truths. So will just offer my own subjective opinion on the GM1 to counter the more negative views without ...
  • GM1 is much smaller than EM-10. Really not the same class of ILC. Also kit lens is much more useful, 12mm focal length and manual zoom instead of the rocker switch. To the OP: From those two th ...
  • I ahd the same thought. 4/3 sensor size doesn't mean M4/3 mount. It would be the dumbest thing possible, though. But that makes it actually more likely. Canon hasn't excelled in product strategy ...
  • Created discussions Metz saved
    If this has been posted before, I apologize, but haven't seen it. Search didn't show anything. The flash unit of Metz has been bought by a German electrical drive company. Here is the press release: ...
  • Much better than the stupid footballers they seem to have under contract. http://www.volvooceanrace.com/en/news/8829_Not-an-unknown-world-anymore.html There isn't anything about the camera gear ...
  • The 12-32 is all manual. I know the OP said the focal length is want he wants, just wanted to point that out. The rocker zoom switch is what pushed me away from the Olympus E-M10.
  • I'm a metric European, but fractions are a great tool, even in a decimal system. 4/3 is actually a great example. Try writing it as a decimal number...
  • Why would it? Keep the Smasung, it's a good cam. Buy the 30 and or 20mm lens for it. They are small (great for backpacking) and fast. They are also quite cheap. Spend the rest of the money on your ...
