  • On the subject of Pixel count and older v newer sensors,  I recall a recent blog by Kirk Tick where he preferred the image quality from the 16mp D7000 to the 24mp D7100   and the OMD EM5 to the ...
  • Would love to have 12mp sensor again but with the latest Sony or Samsung technology.   Bigger pixels rather than more pixels any day.
  • I wouldn't be surprised to see Olympus UK throwing in a free two part grip from day one to try and justify £900, especially as they are still offering a free vertical grip with the EM1 which is ...
  • The image of the new EM5II with the HLD-6P battery pack added to the new grip clearly shows how the new camera is perhaps up to 10mm wider than the original EM5.
  • A 35mm equivalent lens is a great single lens travel solution which I have used going way back to cameras such as the Olympus XA/XA2 How about an EM10 or GX7 both of which will give you a much more ...
  • getting back to the original post I have used a GH2 for still for a couple if years and recently bought a G5 at the bargain clearance price. The GH2 has excellent image quality when shot in RAW and ...
  • a very little used GH2 in near mint condition. £245.00 Can be sold with a new 14-42 lens for £295 or a very good condition and sharp 14-45 for £345. I can also include an own user grip for £45 ...
  • Hello Brian These are superb photos and clearly show how the EM1 with good technique can get the best out of the high end 4/3 lenses such as the 50-200. In practice did you find the focusing with ...
  • Created for sale Olympus 4/3 9-18 lens
    For Sale near mint Digital Zuiko 4/3 mount 9-18 zoom lens.   Only used  a few times, excellent optics  complete with lens hood caps and Olympus soft case.  Focuses well on latest M 4/3 cameras ...
  • The sigma 60mm is a great lens but is more of a candid lens than a classic portrait lens so it really depends what you are going to shoot and at what working distance. I carry the sSgma as a ...
  • A good option if you can find one cheap is the G3  which has the  GX1 sensor and processing.  I use one as "pocket" camera with 14mm prime  when I do not want to take the GH2 plus 12-35. The G3 is ...
  • Panasonic UK are also doing a 2 year warranty promotion on most cameras The GH3 models that qualify for the freebies plus the 2 year warranty are listed as DMC-GH3AEB-K, and  DMC-GH3EB-K. Does any ...
  • Replied in GH4 Discussion
    As the GH4 body seems to be identical to the GH3 I wonder if the new GH4 EVF optics could be retro fitted to the GH3  This assumes that the EVF panel is the same size and positioned identically.  ...
  • The reviews of the G6 seem to indicate similar raw quality to the GH2 but much better JPEG processing.  Hopefully the G7 will have the extra DR of the GX7 sensor.
  • I have the same dilemma and as the G6 is the closet to the GH2 in terms of size and handling  and to me has a better EVF than GH3 or GX7,  I am going to wait to see if the G7 has the new GX7 sensor.
  • 100% agree. The GH4 will not be for everyone, but it is great for the future of M4/3  and bad news for Canon, Nikon and Sony.
  • Panasonic in their promotional galleries by pro photographers are clearly pushing the stills capability as much as the video, the silent shutter option  and high burst rate capability being some ...
  • Created discussions GH2 - good time too sell?
    With there being  good demand for used GH2's  I am considering selling my lightly used example complete with "own user" grip and spare battery. Being mainly a stills user I am looking for better ...
  • For sure pro photographers such as Buchan Grant could get great images from a huge range of cameras and lens, but what important for the future of M4/3, and this is after all the M4/3 forum, is ...
  • Panasonic claim better colour accuracy and improved optics for the GH4 EVF. I wonder how many sales they lost for the GH3 due to the EVF issues. I for one have held back switching from my GH2 to a ...
