  • That's not to say you can't shoot sports at all with an E-PL5, but it's harder. I went to Indianapolis Colts training camp last year along with my E-PL5 and 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 and ended up with a ...
  • It's pretty difficult to do manual follow focus when you're shooting from one end of a soccer field or a basketball court with the action coming toward (and away from) you rather than moving left ...
  • Whatever shortcomings the entry-level DSLRs have with C-AF tracking, the Micro 4/3 cameras (with the exception of the OM-D E-M1 and the Panasonic DFD cameras) are worse. Sure I can gun out 8 fps in ...
  • I suspect the Olympus 40-150mm was terrible for you because you were using it on a Panasonic body...and neither the lens nor the body had stabilization in that case. Put it on an Olympus body like ...
  • I have an Olympus E-PL5, but I'm not married to that particular body. I've found that I could use some extra focal length for sports and wildlife. Not sure if going from 150 to 200 is enough or if ...
  • You like the Olympus 40-150mm on the G3 even without in-body image stabilization? So are you shooting with a tripod all the time?
  • I don't see why you have to buy an $1,100 camera body to have a good C-AF system. After all, even the most basic DSLR can do a better job of this (Nikon is selling the D3200 with two kit lenses ...
  • To be less nitpicky: The continuous autofocus / tracking technology in the OM-D E-M1, GH4, and entry-level DSLRs blows the doors off the C-AF technology in all other Micro 4/3 cameras, including ...
  • This is all I'm saying. I just want Olympus to trickle the autofocus technology from the E-M1 down to its other cameras...maybe there will be an OM-D E-M5 Mark III that corrects this problem. ...
  • To clarify: PDAF as found in the E-M1 or CDAF with DFD as found in the GH4, FZ1000, etc. > CDAF without DFD as found in every other Olympus Pen or OM-D camera
  • Yep, that's the place: Michael A. Carroll Track and Soccer Stadium. Those photographers are standing on the running track that surrounds the pitch (and annoys the team since they want fans to be ...
  • So I ordered the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO lens as a rental. On a scale of 1-10, how important is it for me to also rent the MC-14 teleconverter and/or the E-M1 camera body (considering I already have the ...
  • So how was Sony able to offer phase detect AF in the a6000 mirrorless camera for about the same price as an OM-D E-M10? How was Nikon able to offer PDAF with its Nikon 1 line? I think this is just ...
  • "I really am asking myself what makes you believe that entry level DSLRs offer better C-AF performances." You may well be right about the E-M1, GH4, and FZ1000 being excellent for these purposes. ...
  • I'm all for making the MC-14 work with any Micro 4/3 lens. But since it doesn't...a few questions for you to think about: When you say "slow," do you mean in terms of aperture or autofocus speed? ...
  • Replied in The FZ2000??
    Yep - the Sony DSC-RX10 Mark II was just announced yesterday. There are lots of new features for video, including 4K. So, with that in mind, there's a real dilemma for people looking at this class ...
  • One great thing about Micro 4/3 is that almost every lens is designed to be shot wide open. They are so sharp you don't need to stop them down. Almost every review of Micro 4/3 lenses that I read...

  • The Sony RX10 is a teleconverter away from being ideal.

    If the Panasonic FZ1000 were f2.8 from 28-200 and then f4 from 200-400, then that would work too. But the aperture in the FZ1000 drops off...

  • Street photography is one thing...sports and wildlife photography is quite another because the subjects are moving so quickly. And this is where the Micro 4/3 cameras have lagged behind DSLRs. ...
