  • Replied in ZS3 is tough
    For almost a year, since June 2009, my ZS3 was strong and reliable. A few weeks before the end of the One year warranty period, its zoom-in/zoom-out lever began to behave erratically (for ...
  • Replied in lenses !
    hi there, I've been to tropical Thailand , snowy Japan , and, snowy Montreal , with a K7, K5 or K5IIs. Yet, I've never really used my 18-55WR, but, I did use my DA50-200WR for the japanese snow monkeys
  • Replied in GX1, gf6, gm5
    I have a EM5, but, my 20/1.7 lives on a GX1. Almost permanently. Why not get a GF6 again ? or GM5...?
  • Me too, I'm not eager to change lens too often. Especially not just to take a few shots, and, swap back the main lens afterwards. On the other hand, I usually prefer prime lenses to zoom. I really ...
  • After a few thousands of pictures with my GX1, I have not observed any "shutter shock". Is there a setting which would increase the probabilities of such vibration ? or, perhaps, your GX1 unit is ...
  • Commented on Video Product Overviews article

  • Replied in ZS3 va ZS15
    The IQ of the ZS3 I had was better than the IQ of the ZS15 that I have now. Also, the ZS3 had slightly wider aperture through most of its zoom range. The ZS15 is much faster at focusing. That's its ...
  • Replied in #6
    The picture is mostly perfect as is. The pipe is part of the "story".
  • Great pictures ! I really like the lady and the cat in the window. Neat composition :) Please continue your work. It seems your country and location are full of photo opportunities. In which city ...
  • The K5 AF was letting me down too. It was awful in low light. Once I got a K5IIs, suddenly, it's as if I had 5 years more of experience of photography! ...half joking here... At least, I did not ...
  • If you want to be bewildered by the large selection of m43 lenses, you should look at it in a well ordered way . Mr. Hennig web page is a complete compilation of all m43 lenses, AFAIK. If you liked ...
  • An umbrella is usually enough to fix the WR doubts. :) My favourite travel camera is WR, but, my favorite prime lenses are not. If snow is falling , I protect the lense with my left hand. If it's ...
  • DivideEtImpera, I agree with Beat Traveller. The 3rd combo seems to be the best deal and more versatile combination. Earlier this year, I got a good deal for the X-E1 + 18-55. That kit was cheaper ...
  • It seems that she preferred the Takumar in the 2nd shot. ;) (I guess the 2nd is the 50/1.4 because it appears to have more DoF -- if you shot both lenses wide open).
  • It was a friend's GF1 + 20mm/1.7 which attracted me to m4/3. Before that, I had had a few compact cameras, and, in 2009, I had the Panasonic FZ28, ZS3 and LX3. I felt that noise from these cameras ...
  • Replied in old primes
    I agree with Col K10D, old primes are more interesting than old zooms. Two reasons: (1) usually primes are sharper than zoom, and, more so with old lenses
  • The Sigma 18-50/2.8 seems way better for sharpness, and, it has f/2.8 through the focal range. Usually, i do not post about product that I have never used.But, that 18-50/2.8 is the one zoom that I ...
  • I have a K5IIs. I shoot RAW+Jpg (Jpg: one *). That gives ~24 MB+ per image. My understanding is that the K5* serie does not take advantage of the extremely fast (and expensive) SD cards. (The K3 ...
  • That's good news. :)
  • interesting comparison! I wish that Ricoh-Pentax will bring newer lenses out. Some of the existing ones are a bit underwhelming. Such as the slow AF of the DA*50-135. It seems that the SDM ...
