  • 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. ...
  • Because they're not looking to win any photography awards, they just want good, sharp photos that capture the action with minimal effort and learning. Manual focusing, especially with sports ...
  • The only thing I can figure out is that there might be some downsides for video. This is why Panasonic developed the Depth from Defocus technology for better tracking of moving subjects while ...
  • But I'm talking about the market for Olympus PEN models and, say the OM-D E-M10. Amateurs and hobbyists like me...or maybe parents trying to take good photos of their kids running around. If ...
  • With the new 40-150mm f2.8 PRO from Olympus, you can get to 105 (or even 150) at f2.8. Probably not all that different from f2.5. And you get to 210 at f4 with the MC-14 teleconverter. Not that I ...
  • Commented on Nikon D1 Review preview

    I used one of these in 2002 when I worked as a reporter/photographer for a community newspaper. It was, for its time, a pretty incredible machine even three years after it was introduced.

  • Well, this is an old thread, but your wish has been granted with the MC-14. Unfortunately it only works with the 40-150mm f2.8 PRO and (in the future) the 300mm f4 PRO lenses.
  • Considering consumer-oriented competitors like the Sony a6000, Nikon 1, and every SLR ever has phase detect autofocus, I'd hope this wouldn't be perceived as a "pro" feature. Even your average ...
  • I think most people are just after better photos. If they're REALLY concerned about size and portability, they're probably not going to buy this camera anyway since it's quite bulky.

    So who is it...

  • Replied in Olympus E-P7
    Is the EVF from your GX7 small? My mom recently got the Panasonic DMC-LF1 point-and-shoot, and it has a similar design. Her EVF is positively tiny. I'm coming from the perspective of the ...
  • Well, yes, but there are machines within the same price range that can do a much better job with this: entry-level DSLRs. So if I'm interested in shooting sports and wildlife, that would make me ...
  • It shouldn't really have to be a "balance." All of the Micro 4/3 cameras and lenses could benefit from the Dual Fast AF system from the E-M1. So when they say they just included PDAF in the E-M1 ...
  • I actually take a lot of bird photos, so fairly serious but lacking the budget to buy a pro lens. An egret in flight at dusk (hence the noise from ISO 6400 at f5.6 and heavy cropping). Very ...
  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    Very impressive compared to what? The previous E-M5? The E-M1? A DSLR?

  • Commented on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 Review preview

    Dear Sony: How about a teleconverter for this camera?

  • So this is a really interesting option and probably the best point-and-shoot camera available today. A true bridge camera.

    But, for that same amount of money or less, you can get a two-lens DSLR...
