  • Thanks...that's what I thought too. I guess the guy at the camera shop was misinformed.
  • Addendum: The guy at the camera store told me that the PDAF is only beneficial if you're adapting legacy 4/3 glass to the E-M1. It wouldn't help me at all if I were only using Micro 4/3 glass. So ...
  • So help me understand something. What's the best upgrade path from my E-PL5 + VF-4 viewfinder if I am primarily interested in tracking moving subjects with Micro 4/3 lenses? Is it E-M1, E-M5 Mark ...
  • Thanks for saying this. I use an Olympus body (E-PL5), and I was considering switching from my Oly 40-150 to a Panny 45-200 for the extra reach. Would similar speed issues arise from making that ...
  • I have the E-PL5 and VF-4, both of which I bought used on Craigslist so I got a very good deal on both. But if you're buying new, the E-PL7 and VF-4 together are considerably more expensive than an ...
  • So I ended up renting the 40-150mm f2.8 as was suggested. It's a tremendous lens. Someone also suggested renting the OM-D E-M1 as an upgrade over my Pen E-PL5 + VF-4 viewfinder. I thought renting ...
  • Replied in The FZ2000??
    We're not talking about the FZ200...we're talking about the FZ1000 and its successor, which might be the FZ2000. I suppose the successor to the FZ200 could be the FZ300?
  • 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 ...
