  • Replied in Yes, for some...
    Works pretty well with the ZD 35mm macro (below) and legacy (Tamron bottom)
  • This is just a bookmark for Olympus USA / Canada for 04/21/15 New “In Stock”as of 04/21/15 - $1,699.99 Reconditioned “Limited Quantities ...
  • Replied in Easter Morning
    A morning stroll along the Natchaug River, just below Diana's Pool. A favorite spot in season for local kids, college students and trout fishermen. It's a busy and dangerous spot, class II to IV ...
  • Carl, Why the 12mp E30 over the 16mp EPL5? A quick answer is the rendering characteristics. The EVF is another but different issue. I do some pro-bono event work, one is an awards reception for a ...
  • Hope you enjoy them. My used E30 and used ZD 12-60 have paid for themselves several times over. And after shooting with the E30 and EPL5 with it's "superior" sensor side by side, the E30 is still ...
  • Life is sweet. Keep the stories coming.
  • Ah Marty, Panasonic came out with m4/3 with the G1, announced in September 2008. The GH1 announced in March 2009 and the GF1 announced in September 2009. Olympus announced the PEN E-P1, June 2009. ...
  • Well, Olympus has some seven or eight 16mp cameras in rotation. None of them seem to be selling all that well. They can’t seem to give away some of them. The bottom is dropping out of the used ...
  • And, It is sometimes instructive to check posters Galleries. Helps to see where they're coming from. : - )
  • I'll add to Peter's comment that the E-M1 and m4/3 is a completely different system. What you will mostly hear in this forum now is how great the OMD line is compared to the 4/3 system. That ...
  • Yes, Olympus lost some compass settings when they dropped the Kodak sensors, the move to fingertip cameras and then the 16mp sensor. Dropping telecentric lens design didn't help either. But at ...
  • Replied in January
    January Bougainvillea (something to take the edge off the white outside).
  • Unlikely that a lens wider than the 25 or 17.5 is going to have corners like the 42.5 at f/1.4. Fast wides in all formats suffer vignetting and softness wide open. Even with that in mind the...

  • Replied in Recent pix
    Really enjoy the travelogues! And yes, that Leica 14-150 is impressive (and still pricy).
  • Lovely image, even the second time around : - ) Like something from one of the Life Library of Photography books. Something that doesn't seem to get a lot of mention is how well the E1 images do as ...

    Wonderful lighting in these two. The falloff from the center spot in the Solas shot is really nice. Just enough.
  • It may not be simply that the telecentric designed lenses are better on the edges and corners (as they were designed to be) than any of the m4/3 lenses, take a look at the paint tube from the M5 ...
  • Commented on Olympus OM-D E-M5 II Review preview

    Well, does Olympus USA seem to think there's still a market? Or maybe Olympus is just hedging their bet?

    "In Stock" (Only $1,699):

  • Tracking camera usage (percentages of share) on flickr over the past year in Camera Finder has been real interesting. It's readily apparent why Canon has no interest in the mirrorless market for ...
  • Replied in Reenactors
