  • you could use it as a slave, using a (cheap) receiver (optical). The slave would be triggered by the flash from the camera.
  • With this combination, the aperture lever of the lens rubs on the inner circumference of the adapter (when the lens is fully screwed in). This does not happen with lenses which do not have that ...
  • Even worse: the two primes together are heavier than the 12-35 zoom! The 25/1.4 is 200g. The 12/2 is 130g. Total: 330g. The 12-35 is 305g. Ok, since you already have the 12-35, you could add the ...
  • Since Dheorl is carrying everything on his back, reducing weight should be an objective. The 12-40 or 12-35/2.8 are great optically but bulky and heavy.I would not walk everyday with the 12-40 on ...
  • it will be a hiking & mountains ! Unless you have the endurance of a sherpa, and, you are on assignment from Nat Geo, I would suggest to minimize the photo gear. Something like: (1) GX1+20mm or ...
  • The longer the travel, the lighter the bag should be. Personnally, when travelling by plane, I make do with a belt bag, with the camera(s), and, a medium-not-too-big backpack which can fit under ...
  • you do not need a Sony camera. A mount adapter for MFT allows to mount a lens from another lens system (Pentax, Minolta, etc). The bokeh of a 50/1.4 or 1.7 on a MFT camera is more than creamy, it's ...
  • ... almost. it's "glued" to my e-m5. The e-m5 gets the 45 or Sigma 60 when it goes out.
  • The protectors for tablets (iPad, Nexus 7, etc) are touch screen compatible. I bought a pack of 2 sheets (for 8 inch tablet). I used it for several cameras. I still have a lot of it remaining. it ...
  • As Robbo wrote, I suggest to try RAW. Lightroom is not so difficult to learn. It has tons of profiles and filters. You should be able to find one that matches or surpasses the "Fuji jpegs" feeling. ...
  • When I finally upgraded from the K5 classic to the K5IIs, the improvement in AF (critical in many low light situations) was so amazing... that I felt like an idiot to have delayed that upgrade. ...
  • These are great for macro lenses and portrait lenses. We don't need to focus to infinity in those 2 types of situations. I leave the adapter-with-flange screwed thigthly on the lens. It's easy to ...
  • I had the 45-200 and 100-300. Sold both (because former was unsatifying, latter was too big and rarely used). The 45-150 is much sharper than the 45-200 that I had. It's also conveniently smaller. ...
  • Both are great combinations and have no issues, AFAIK. The 20mm is always on my GX1. (The 14mm is on a E-PM2, for now).
  • Amen to that: ergonomy (comfort & usability), and, lenses. I've explored the X-E1 menu. It seems much easier to understand than the menu from the Olympus (I've used the E-M5, E-PL2, E-PM2). The ...
  • Apology accepted. Having the courage to apologize for this misunderstanding shows that you are a gentleman :)
  • That kit can currently be found at about $700 USD. That's cheaper than the Oly 12-40/2.8 Yes, the Fuji 18-55 is only f/2.8-4 (F/4 at 55mm), but, that could be good enough in many situations. Also, ...
  • Not kidding. Have you tried taking pictures of people walking at a good pace toward you with a DA70? ... try it again (in AF-C mode, of course). Hmmm..., you can use F/4... Examine your pictures to ...
  • The K3 needs more excellent lenses, with fast AF. IMHO, the Limited are the "flagship(s)" of Pentax. But, their AF is screwdrive. They are too slow to do AF-C properly on an incoming subject. The ...
  • Replied in North Korea? no
    Montreal is *not* North Korea. You can take pictures of train stations... But, on private property (ex. Gare Centrale, owned by CN), the owner can decide to forbid taking pictures. (And, there is ...
