  • With many trips to Legoland I can't really think of many situations where you'd need the 75mm.   The shows are in small venues, so the 12-40 at 40 will be fine.  Most of the rides are on the ...
  • Okay, so when I first got into m43 3 years ago I wanted a long lens similar to the 70-300 I had with my Olympus 520.  So I got the pany 45-200.  As I posted my images from the zoo and others with ...
  • And the biggest thing was the quality varied a lot.   Looks like you got one of the relatively few good ones. I had the 45-200 when I went to the San Diego zoo.  I got some good shots, but they ...
  • My wife went from the XZ-1 to the EPL5 + Pany 14mm pancake.   She loves it.   It's only a little bit bigger, but with the fast f2.5 lens it does soooo much better in low light.  It's nice to have ...
  • Ironically got out with the 135mm last night and the results were much better on Comet LoveJoy.   You want as fast a lens as possible: ISO 6400 135mm@f2.3 with 2 sec exposure - 12 pics stacked I'm ...
  • Most definitely. Though as your focal length increases, your shutter speed must decrease to prevent star trails. Here is a rule of thumb for preventing star trails (in 35mm equivalent length): I ...
  • On the phone, so reply is brief. A picture of the outside taken from inside is fine by me!
  • Replied in No problem
    Eggcellent!   Thanks!
  • Just realized that when the challenge ends, I'll be off the grid camping.  (Yes it's still nice weather here).  I won't be back online for a week.  Can someone else take over the wrap up and poll ...

    Of course in the summer it's 110F (44C) and you melt! :D

    Sorry, sometimes I forget about the cold.  Here in Arizona I still wear shorts at night and just put on a jacket when viewing with my telescope at 1am. Still there should be some lights worth a ...
  • It's tough compared to the newer sensors, but not impossible.   I shot the placeholder in the exhibition section with my E520 handheld! :D   Yeah, there's a bit of blur because I couldn't stop the ...
  • Replied in Hi Kevdog!
    Challenge should be up and all the links should be correct. Please let me know if there is an error and I'll try and fix it before the edit time runs out. Enjoy!
  • After getting back into astronomy in a big way the last few years I love the night sky. But all night time photos lull me in. With the Christmas lights out this time of year as well, there should ...
  • Replied in Hi Kevdog!
    I'll get the new one posted tomorrow (Monday).  Holidays are over for a bit again. Sorry for the delay!  And thanks again!
  • Sorry, I was definitely off this week for Thanksgiving and just thought I'd check the results tonight.   If you or someone can set it up, I'd like to continue the theme with night shots :D Thanks ...
  • I think the main change in the picture is the addition of the flag, which was put there in 2001 I believe!  Everything else as you mentioned, just works and hasn't needed changed/upgraded.
  • Well, also the first photo was shot with a $300 Olympus P&S. Can't remember the exact model. But the camera was already stretched to the limits and struggled indoors without a flash. Obviously ...
  • We went to the hoover dam this fall and took the dam tour with my 7 year old.  Thinking back we had been on the same tour in 2000 and I looked back at my pictures.  Wow, what a difference!   ...
  • When I tested several copies of the 14/42 PZ lens they all had shutter shock issues from 1/60th to 1/200th of a sec. It didn't seem like they could fix the lens and now there's the new 12-32mm ...
