  • Replied in Stay alive....
    ....it's well worth waiting for!
  • My experience is a bit different. The GX8 is growing on me. I'm learning to use all the features more effectively. The blue jay above was in deep shadows and was "shot" handheld using the GX8 and ...
  • Replied in ...and about IQ
    I have a stellar copy of the Pany 100-400 and I had a great copy of the 50-200. With the TC which I needed...the Pany is better IQ wise...no questions asked
  • the 50-200+ 1.4TC I think made compromises with IQ (over the 50-200 alone), required an adapter to mount on MFT bodies and went against the main reason I chose MFT- namely size and weight. It ...
  • I gave up on that combo! Sooo heavy, difficult to focus accurately, relatively slow. Finally got the Pany 100-400 - life is good, very good!
  • Replied in ...but...
    As long as your subjects hold still in bright light and you don't need to crop the 75-300 is adequate. I've got plenty of those. Just don,t need to focus fast from greater distance wide open or in ...
  • I don't want to be changing lenses, I want to travel light...last trip to Paris brought my Panasonic 40-140 f3.5 on my OM-10D (electronic shutter - no shutter shock with lens) great combo...great ...
  • Not much experience with the gunrest- but this lens is a midget compared to the Tamron 150-600 I use on my Sony a77ii. It handled really well mounted on a GX8 on a Jobu Gimbal. In fact with the ...
  • Nice pics! My copy has what seems like a stiff zoom which I also hope will loosen up. I just got the lens and I am putting it through some preliminary testing. With the Lenscal there was no problem ...
  • Thank you to everyone who responded to my post. In fact I just needed to give the 603 trigger a little more push into the hot shoe. I discovered with the 603 and the flash set to Multi and RX I ...
  • Created discussion thread EM1 and Yongnuo off camera
    I know this has been addressed but I can't seem to get it! I have Yongnuo RF603 NII triggers and 2 YN560 IV speedlights (the box says that they are supposedly for Panasonic)  and just can't seem ...
  • I have the Pany 30 and the Oly 60 - both great lenses. I found the magnification factor on the Oly 60 too great to use for larger subjects that I needed to shoot at closer distances- operating ...
  • I feel your pain! I was so frustrated with the long lens options for MFT that I invested in a Sony a77ii and a Tamron 150-600. This was much better for the extended range (~900 mm) and BIF than ...
  • ...but really no difference. It is the individual who is the professional, not the equipment. Great equipment just makes the jobs easier many times. I can get the job done as well with less fancy ...
  • You miss the point. It's the "Pro" that employs whatever tools that make him(her) function the best...not the tools that make the pro. I know my photography is not going to be better with a D5 and ...
  • Replied in Not my day job!
    I look at photography as I look at golf...fun, more fun when you take it seriously and can do it well, but not life and death. I really get satisfaction from taking photos and am fascinated by the ...
  • Replied in Nissin Di466
    Nissin Di466 works fine...I have problems with the Olympus FL600. Newer Nissins for MFT might be more compact.
  • ...I kept my EM-1: it handles too well and does most everything well (not bif, though - trying the red dot laser sight), but I also got the GX8 as my second camera: so serious: weather sealed, ...
  • Replied in Why not?
    Unless you are a professional photographer in which case you might be using a high full frame with fast sharp primes or zooms, I think the 12-40 is fine- it's a great lens. I like the 12-35 ...
  • I wear the EM-1 on a light BlackRapid strap with an Arca compatible clamp which hold a Peak hand strap. This works the best for me and allows me to unmount the camera from the strap to use on a ...
