In my experience, the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 has a very smooth and nice bokeh. On the negative side, out of focus highlighs (e.g., during night photos) can have hard edges. And when stopping down, the...
The problem with video recording with the GH3, in my opinion, is that it is not easy to manage settings to get a 180 degree shutter.
I agree that it is best to use 1080p, 50fps or 60fps, depending...
I have some examples here:
One thing to think about is that even with the electronic shutter, there are moving parts in the lens. The lens will need to change the aperture for every shot, unless you are using the maximum...

I'm not sure that "metal barrel" is the right way to describe the construction. Surely, the exterior is metal. But I'm guessing...
Any interest in video? That might tip the balance towards the GX7.
Otherwise, I view the GX7 more as a shower camera than a real performer in my opinion. It doesn't have a good grip. And the EVF...
I love the Tamrac Velocity Sling x6. It will fit the E-M1 with the 12-40mm, and another medium small lens.
So if you don't intend to carry anything beyond the camera and lens, it would be a tad...
Fun fact: The number of spikes on the stars is related to the number of aperture blades.
See some illustrations here:
The maximum flash sync speed is very low at 1/50th of a a second.
This could indicate that the electronic shutter readout is 1/50s (or faster).
If so, not too bad. The first...
Thanks for the reply. Could you please let me know how the image quality of 45-175mm compared to 14-140 in the similar focal lengths?
I have compared them at 140mm...
I don't think Fujifilm joins the retro style fad. They started it! With the X100.
For BIF, get the 100-300mm. It focuses fast, and is generally a good lens, relative to the price.
My review of the lens here.
From Samyang/Rokinon, rumors and announcements indicate that they will bring out two lenses:
A 10mm f/2.8, which is designed for both DSLR and mirrorless cameras. This means it will be huge.
I have compared a number of Panasonic zooms at 140mm:
I'd say get the 45-175mm lens if you think you can afford it, otherwise, get the...
Was the Vulcan operational, flying?
I have made a video from an air show with the same lens:
Unfortunately, I shake quite a bit, and there are some...
Essentially, I would say:
If you want a cheap DSLR-like spare camera, get G5. If you have more money to spend, get G6. And if money is no issue, get GH3.
Or if you want a cheap compact spare...
G1: Original, first M4/3 camera.
G2: Same as G1, but with touch screen.
G10: Seriously dumbed down, avoid.
G3: New design, smooth, slippery surfaces. Said to be designed for women (?!)
For a superzoom lens, the new 14-140mm lens is very good. Here is a comparison in the long end of the zoom:
On the negative side, it is...

They've increased the readout speed for the focus points on the sensor to 240Hz in the high end models. So the focusing mechanism gets 240 samples per...
It will be very expensive, clearly.
It is the fastest autofocus capable Micro Four Thirds lens so far.
It has OIS.
It is Leica branded.
They don't come much more expensive than this ...
