  • 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.
  • Replied in DA15
    Indeed, the DA15 copes very well with situations that often provoques bad flares in images. It's amazing. I can use it at F/4 (the corners are soft because of lack of DoF, usually). Of course, ...
  • (To avoid being flamed to ashes, I am not asking this quesion in the MFT nor in the Fuji forum). Does anyone here have experience with both lenses for travel photography ? I do love my Pentax ...
  • I agree that a "super-zoon" camera can be an alternative to a long zoom for MFT. Before getting a Pana 100-300 in 2013, I had a FZ150 in 2012. The 100-300 did give sharper, and, more contrasted ...
  • What you wrote is (usually) true for APS-C and FF lenses. I have 4 fast APS-C primes which are F/1.8, F/1.9, F/2.4, and F/2.8, and, they have their optimum IQ between F/4 and F/5.6 -- nonetheless, ...
  • I have the X-E1 + 18-55. It's a very nice kit. If you can, go for the X-E1 + 18-55 + 50-230 :) Don't forget to buy a second battery (at least). And, perhaps, the inexpensive (non-Fuji) grip. The ...
