  • A couple of thoughts. HIKE  to me means small and light. I assume you'll be hiking down . . . and up. In that case choosing a lens that's not a monster is preferable. I've hiked into and out of the ...
  • I kind of agree, though not with your conclusion. I toted around a RRS-gripped EM5 + 12-40mm for a couple of long hikes at Bryce NP last month. A lot of up and down, just a long day. Like I always ...
  • I think you're missing the point of the versatility of this camera. Yes, you can mount a pancake lens on it and put it in your pocket--I carry mine like this all the time (see photo above!). This ...
  • Well, the one attribute of the GM1 is in fact new and innovative its tiny size--no other m43 camera comes close. You may dislike the size, but many prefer small, pocketable cameras and for them ...
  • People make this claim all the time, and I wonder if they've tried. Granted I'm an old guy, but in what sense is this not "truly pocketable"? Fattish old guy showing that you can indeed carry a GM1 ...
  • Tom, I agree the GM1 is a giant step in the right direction, but I think it's a game-changer only in the sense that it shows how small m43 can really go. But the camera has too many limitations to ...
  • I had the 16mm and my copy sucked. I mean, if you have to stop a lens down and keep the subject in the center to get a technically decent image then it basically sucks. Of course you can still get ...
  • You're going to find legacy lenses addictive . . . I know I have! I've bought tons of lenses off eBay, and if you can get them at a good price (e.g., be patient) you can usually sell them for ...
  • Replied in My thoughts...
    We're still quibbling about the word "much". I don't consider 22% more pixels horizontally and vertically to be  "much more"; you do. Fair enough. In principle, yes. But of course the 12Mp ...
  • By the standards of modern lenses, it's really that bad. It suffers from vignetting, distortion, corner softness, and overall softness wide-open . For comparison, here's a sharper lens that covers ...
  • Replied in Crop factor
    This is exactly right. I went down that road for a while, and finally realized to get a normal or slightly WA look from a legacy lens I needed to get a lens that was: (a) big; (b) heavy; and (c) ...
  • Replied in My thoughts...
    Remember, 24Mp isn't "much better resolution"; it's 22% more pixels horizontally and vertically. That's certainly better, but I'd quibble with "much better". As far as the larger sensor goes, the ...
  • I have a NEX-5R which IQ-wise is about the same as the A6000. This is my experience: 1. Sony APS-C lenses basically suck unless they're very expensive (e.g., Zeiss), and almost all are ...
  • Huh? I see $39: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Haida-PRO-II-PROII-slim-MC-Neutral-Density-Filter-ND-3-0-ND1000-10-Stop-58mm-/161229212362?pt=Camera_Filters&hash=item258a028aca EDIT: I see what you mean; ...
  • One of the advantages of m43 is that you don't need to restrict yourself to one manufacturer. In this case, I think consensus is that the two sharpest m43 lenses are the Olympus 75mm and the Panasonic
  • I second this (for me), but I recognize that there are others who don't care that much about minimal size and will LOVE this lens. Me, I'm pretty happy with my Panny 45-150mm, especially with the ...
  • Thanks for the review. But why did you say that you "need" AF with this lens? I've got the much cheaper Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye, and have never really found it a problem to use MF with this FL.
  • Defective? I'm not so sure . . . here's slrgear.com on the CA at 12mm: "There is a bit of a story with chromatic aberration, and it is most obvious at 12mm, where the corner performance numbers are ...
  • Compared to what? Compared to EVERY OTHER KIT lens, including the premium f/2.8 Panasonic 12-35mm, the Oly 12-50mm is longer. The only lens it ISN'T longer than is the 12-40mm f/2.8 Oly, and that ...
  • Replied in I see ..
    I want to complement this post. I think it's the first one where someone actually wrote, essentially, "I'm wrong". We could use a lot more of that around here. People cling to their opinions like ...
