  • It is for sure a matter of perception. But when you are used to it... I also had no wider lens than 28mm until I got the Panasonic TZ7 (ZS3) 5 years ago. But it is really handy sometimes.
  • The Stylus 1 is a nice compact camera. The main mistake in my opinion is that the lens starts at 28 mm equivalent and not at 24 mm. Be it a group of people or be it the surrounding landscape 28mm ...
  • Actually I thought it was time to get a good mobile phone with a good camera. But even expensive mobiles have a really tiny lens with fixed focal length. I do not like that. At the end I decided to ...
  • Replied in GH3 ?
    In my country Panasonic still sells the GH3 as new. Maybe they see the GH3 as an upgrade to the G6. Or maybe they do not want to bring a G7 as long as they have enough GH3 in stock.
  • Replied in Handgrip
    What I do not understand is that they make a camera like the EM5 without a handgrip. If you want a reasonable handgrrip you have to buy one extra. Does not make sense to me. Same with the EM10. Mak ...
  • Replied in Okay it is...
    Okay it is havier and bulkier and in my books not really a "carry around" lens. But it is of course a better lens and I admit also more stable to hold. The latter may allow even longer exposures. I ...
  • Replied in Dude, Man Up.
    Your headline is a bit hard but I think will survive it. Otherwise I use a small bag and that works actually quite well. Greetings
  • Replied in At least ...
    Well at least I know now that I am not the only one who finds it a bit heavy. One has to get used to it. I was just somewhat surprised that it feels havier than I would have expected from the 100 ...
  • It is not a joke and I will adapt for sure but I was somewhat surpised by the different feeling. Must really have to do with it that the GH1 with 12-35 is quite a bit front heavier.
  • I have a similar bag and that works pretty well. But in my hands GH1 + 12-35 feels a bit front heavy. For me the 12-35 needs some left hand support which was hardly necessary with the 14-45. Well I ...
  • I think you are right it must be the balance. For my feeling GH1 and its handgrip is just a bit to small for this lens. Not to say that it is not a nice lens.
  • Created discussions 12-35 feels heavy
    Some time ago I asked for advice which would be more usefull to upgade my lenses from 9-18 and 14-45 to 12-35 or the body from GH1 to EM10. I got a lot answers and after some thinking and ...
  • m43 is a good compromise for many, a good compromise beetween IQ and size. Not that there are not applications which may need lager sensors, and there are also applications were much smaller is enough.
  • Embarrassing mistake of course.
    But a bit harsh to show it this way.

  • Replied in Price an size
    I really would not mind if M43 would be somewhat cheaper. But in no way I would buy a bigger system even if is cheaper. For me it is a good compromise between IQ and size. Thats it.
  • Replied in 12-35 or EM10
    It is always a question preferences. I for my part would have preferd child and father (I assume) both in focus. In this case in my opinion shadows and highlights are much less of a concern, if at ...
  • Replied in 12-35 or EM10
    Oh I use flash a lot and I do bounce it to the ceiling if there is one. I mean in a big hall or church that would not work. Birthday party was just one example. As said before flashlight can be a ...
  • Replied in 12-35 or EM10
    Half the light means one stop less light so one stop underexposed? At least as far as I understand it.
  • Replied in 12-35 or EM10
    The comparison between runners where very small differences count with photography where "one stop" is the double of something is a bit far fetched, isn´t it? Okay just for the fun of it.
  • Ergnomics makes definitely a differernce I know. As mentioned I have the Stylus 1 and for comparison my ancient KonicaMinolta A200. The latter is larger of course but with the handgrip it is really ...
