  • No, still private...
  • More accurately, when you attach a 500mm to the 4/3 camera it behaves like a 1000mm would behave *on a full frame* camera. On the 4/3 it is just a 500mm. The conversion factor goes the other way ...
  • Just keep in mind that the additional light on the full frame sensor comes from using larger, heavier lenses, not from the sensor itself. The advantage of the full-frame is that those larger ...
  • Since you have a 5D MIII and ask about high ISO results on the Olympus smaller sensor.... Keep in mind when comparing pictures at various ISO levels that a full frame needs four times the ISO for ...
  • I'm with you on this one. When I bought the EM1 I bought just one lens, the 17mm f1.8 and later on the 45mm f1.8. It's amazing what you can do this way. Before going out I choose the lens to take ...
  • I upgraded from the E3 to the EM-1 but I don't use zooms anymore. The EM-1 is just perfect for a lot or other activities too, like travels, city trips etc. I have the 17mm and 45mm and I can have ...
  • That's a possibility indeed...
  • Created discussions MC‑14 compatibility
    That converter is said to be compatible only with the 40-150mm, it that really true ? Looking at it I don't see why it would not be compatible with a 4/3 lens with the micro 4/3 attached. When I ...
  • What I don't get is that if you are in A (or M) mode and selected, say a f2.8 aperture, the camera would never select by itself f2.0 if it were available, so who cares ? In P or S mode it would ...
  • Studio lighting no but manual exposure yes. Anyway, I think I found the reason as explained above.
  • According to this (http://www.pierretoscani.com/echo_telezooms_english.html) (not an easy read...), there are many design approaches (number of groups, which groups are moving etc) to zooms and ...
  • Not sure who you are talking to (I'm personally an Olympus user...) and I don't understand how it relates to the question but ok...
  • No value maybe but it would not hurt them either Who wouldn't prefer a 2.0 lens at 40mm, one of the most used focal length for portrait ?
  • No, aperture is just the the ratio focal length/(front) lens diameter... A 150mm f2.0 requires a 75mm lens but at 40mm it's only 20mm. That's why most zooms are variable aperture, the wider ...
  • Created discussions Why constant aperture ?
    Why do many people consider that as an advantage ? The new 40-150 f2.8 looks nice but I for one would have preferred a 2.0-2.8 aperture. After all the "equivalent" (don't get me started on that) ...
  • Exactly, or maybe Olympus Viewer should offer the option to save and reapply this settings after the update, or maybe simply give one the option to display and save to a text file what was changed ...
  • Or this one: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/994972-REG/fotodiox_om_4_3_mft_pro_micro_4_3_mft.html B&H didn't have the Olympus one when I was there so I took that one instead. Works very well.
  • Replied in NYC pride
    During the last NYC pride
  • I gave it a try last WE with only a few images (Olympus E1, E3 and EM1 files). I didn't find C1 better than Aperture but it's possible that my images were not of the right kind to make the ...
