  • According to the troll going by the name of fingersomething "I'm going to partly agree with this point. MFT lenses have to be sharper and less diffracting than equivalent FF lenses to render the ...
  • He will be in the right forum for as long as we make the mistake to feed the trolls (not that I don't make the same mistake myself); ignore him, or just send him the name and address of a good ...
  • And adapted their style to the constraints of fast apertures. Style was not an independent choice, economics came first, style followed . It is possible to achieve a subtler use of DoF, to create ...
  • I do and I have seriously considered it. Ufortunately, this system has not yet realized its full potential; bodies have no size advantage (nothing yet as small as the GM series, or the RX100), ...
  • Replied in We?
    I am merely giving you an insider's tip - I may be an amateur, but I do have some contacts who do (professional) cinematography (and I mean cinematography, not wedding videos, not even commercial) ...
  • That's assuming too much.  How many sensors are there out there that use the exact same technology and differ only on size? And that's before even factoring in the effects of using different ...
  • Replied in We?
    Ad hominem arguments are neither civil nor valid; in fact, usually they are a telltale sign of desperation. But I will pass and respond, in order to put that red herring out of the way: Are you ...
  • Replied in Nice take ;)
    Fast lenses are mostly for night street photography and other low light situations and DoF and blur comparison posts are mostly responses or anticipatory responses to visitors' grumblings ("we can ...
  • This is all correct. But what it amounts to is that 35mm, like medium format, is, or at least is becoming, just a special purpose format. For general photography you don't need it any more (or ...
  • He almost has a point, about the primes and the standard zoom, even though at low ISO there is no significant noise advantage between 35mm and 4/3, and, of course, as you rightly point out, a ...
  • Thanks! :-D (As you may have gathered I have never bothered to study the technicalities of shallow DoF and background blur, since it is not a special effect I aim for)
  • Actually the young lady's hands are OOF - and even the dress is soft-focused! But if your intention [insert correction: no ifs, I am sure this was exactly your intention] was to make the viewer ...
  • Replied in except...
    The question has never been whether FF and m4/3 will give you the same DoF. The question has always been (a) under what circumstances would you actually want the shallower DoF (if, for any reason, ...
  • I suspect it would be a worse portrait! At 120/2 most of the lady would be out of focus - how likely is it that you would want that? And you would need to use either a stabilized lens, or higher ...

    I do not intend to start again discussing DoF etc. But the "sensor efficiency" myth must be busted. In the first place there is no such thing as "same sensor", unless it is actually the exact same ...
  • A 24-80/2.8, an 80-300/2.8, an 85/1.2 and a weather sealed Canikon body, for less than the m4/3 competition? I don't think it is cheaper, unless you buy Sigma or secondhand.  Unfortunately, ...
  • Strange. I have Win7/64 bit and Silkypix seems to work fine.
  • A week earlier in Seville you would have seen a few G series, an EM10 (with no less than the 12-35/2.8 on it - but it is worth noting thath the young Asian lady carrying was shooting through the ...
  • But what would be the advantage over two GM cameras? (ok, the LX100 will give you a faster zoom, but a second body would give you more versatility, so it is not as if the choice were so ...
  • No. I do not know any uber-fast lenses smaller than the Nocticron and the Noctons either * . This does not make them small. This is why I have posted that if I needed an UWA, I would forego the ...
