  • J720's suggestion for the WD wireless backup is something to explore. YMMV... I prefer a simple and robust backup on a common portable hard drive. When I travel, I often fill a 16GB SDHC card each ...
  • This is a typical problem with UV filters. It's better to remove the filter when there is a bright light source in the scene. Perhaps you can find a filter with better anti-reflective coating. It ...
  • The Oly 40-150 is most probably a better value than the Panasonic 45-200. I had the 45-200. It is bulkier and the sharpness at 150-200mm is not as good as the sharpness of the Panasonic 45-150 at ...
  • By my experience, the 45-150 is better at 150mm than the 45-200. I found the pictures at the long end of the 45-200 to be slightly disappointing. Not as sharp as I wished (The 100-300 was much ...
  • Hello, I think it's important to have a few months of experience with new equipment before travelling and relying on it. The 18-55/2.8-4 is sharp and convenient. You can add a prime with your ...
  • Apollon, Please tell us which ones you would bring again, and, which one you would not bring. :)
  • I find it tiring to carry too much luggage when traveling longer distance or to several locations in the same trip. Heavy bags are not fun when changing trains, bus, or flights. And walking ! A ...
  • I like the 18-55 so much on the X-E1 that now I cannot choose a prime. Many of them (the F/1.4 ones) would be bulkier (or almost).
  • Retro mirrorless FF would be good for me too ! if the announced Pentax FF does not have a very good LiveView implementation, I might just ignore it. AF fine tuning for PDAF is tedious, boring, ...
  • Thanks for your interesting in-the-field review of that lens. I've sold my DA 55-300 two years ago, and, now I rely on a FZ200 for 600mm equivalent FL, and, on a DA 50-200 WR for cold, snowy & ...
  • interesting:) my favorite is the last picture. The front prayer wheel is well defined and the tones are pleasing. I think should increase the contrast a bit more in post-processing.
  • and any Panasonic (or, even, Olympus). Why the 14/2.5 ?  Because you wrote "cheap and light...".
  • Replied in Tone curve ?
    In LR4, changing the "Tone curve" settings would explain the major differences between both JPEG. I have C1 v7 but I rarely use it, so, cannot name the equivalent setting.
  • Replied in Full stop.....
    Tedolf, A small sensor 1/1.7" does not give good DR. It's very easy to get burnt sky. That's obvious even on web sized pictures. With APS-C or MFT sensors, it's much easier to get good DR and avoid ...
  • Buy more SDHC cards. Use F+RAW. You can discard the RAW files later (if the matching JPEG is perfect enough).
  • Replied in pls return it
    that is not normal, for any camera, nor electronic devices. get it fixed or simpler, return it, with the lens.
  • Suggestions: You have to decide if you want a ViewFinder or not... Without EVF: (1) E-PL7 + 14-42 kit lens With EVF: (1) E-M5 + 12-50 kit lens, both are WR (weather resistant). ...
  • The K5IIs did solve my frustrations with low light AF. I still feel irritated that the original K5 AF tungsten & low light AF made me spend so much energy in vain for 2 years or so. (The micfro AF ...
  • Replied in battery
    The K30 is still great (16mpx, better AF than the original K5). One weak point would be the smaller capacity of its battery. The D-LI90 battery has a very good capacity.
  • Replied in DA15
    great pictures with the DA15 ! And, nice examples to show how this lens handles the Sun to make  it  part of the composition directly.
