  • You could also bring the GX1+20mm. They can fit in a belt pouch (Lowepro Dashpoint 20). The GX1 would be great for low light or scenes which call for higher resolution & IQ.
  • I also like to keep my cameras in a fanny pack while hiking. Sometimes, I carry two (not large). The great thing about M43 (MFT) is that you can get amazing image quality (IQ), even in low light. I ...
  • Replied in old MF lenses ?
    if you work in a studio, and, can take the time to do manual focus, then legacy primes with adapter are plentiful. (AF or MF, the subject needs to stand still because of thin DoF, anyway). I've ...
  • Got a Pana 45-150 today. It seems to be quite good. I will find more when I use it more. So far, I would recommend it (it is much sharper than the 45-200).
  • I have a GX1. I had the 45-200 and 100-300. I did not notice shutter shock problems with those two lenses on the GX1 (and G3). (Maybe I was lucky or did not scrutinized bad results). Why I sold ...
  • The P-mpx in the DXOMark.com tests of that lens on the K3 are amongst the highest for any lens on the K3. I'm hesitating to buy it for my K5IIs... because I really like the FA43 and DA70. And, I ...
  • You can use them on a Canon 6D, with focus confirm adapter. On get a "Metabone" adapter to recover the angle of view... Myself, I'm happy with my FA43 on a K5IIs. Sharp, nice bokeh, and, character too.
  • The E-M5 is great. It's obvious. The E-PL3 is already very good though. With the 20mm, it could become an always-with-you kit. it can fit in a (relatively) small belt pouch. (It you're not into ...
  • The link works... but, then it's difficult to scroll through the pictures correctly. beautiful pictures, it seems... Please use a simpler HTML/Javascript web page layout. (Or test it in the dozens ...
  • You have to tell us your priorities. With young children, you might be too busy to change lenses or even get yet-another-camera out of its bag. Maybe you do not want to carry too much camera gear ...
  • yes, it happened after reading about the GF1+20mm. I had had compact cameras, up to a ZS-3, and, a FZ28, a LX3, and, a Pentax K7. When the price for the GF1+20mm became more affordable, I got that kit.
  • I have both. The S60/2.8 is longer, and, I find it useful if I want to capture subjects outdoor. Such as motorbikes at least 2 lanes from the sidewalk (where I would stand). The 45/1.8 has a ...
  • Chrome OS is made by Google. The Chrome apps are integrated (dependent) on the Google cloud, yes, but, ... But, Chrome OS is *not* Android.
  • The tripod might be at fault even more than the SR feature.
  • Replied in 20, 14, ...
    I'm sorry to have increased the confusion ! My undestanding is that "+1" means "I agree with that". it's a geeky neologism that comes from web forums or, maybe, G+ (Google + social network).
  • Beautiful sky & landscape !
  • Just as a reminder... Troubleshooting checklist: (1) identify variables in the "system": (2) lens (3) camera body (4) specific related settings: ...
  • Thanks Zvonimir. Excellent observations, AFAIK. My experience with SR on K7, K5, K01, and, K5IIs brings me to similar conclusions. SR is not useful if the shutter speed is faster than 1/500s. And, ...
  • Replied in 20, 14, ...
    +1 for 20 (on GX1) and 14, on E-PM2. The compactness is a plus for daily use or long trip. I use the 45 and Sigma 60 on the E-M5. Unless you enjoy disturbing your productivity, it's better to keep ...
  • Yes, the Fuji X system seems to be very appealing. It now has several large aperture primes. It can certainly give you plenty of joy. :) For me, two other systems seem to have an advantage over the ...
