  • And what proportion of people that buy a Rebel ever buy a second lens? It's a tiny amount. Being able to buy all sorts of second lenses might be part of the appeal, but most people never do.

  • Not selling the M3 in America makes perfect sense.

    At the moment, Americans as a nation don't like CSCs. The various theories of why they prefer DSLRs have been debated many a time on DPR and...

  • @Eugene32 I'm sure for people starting out new, and who could afford the lenses *cough*, a Sony A7 would be very attractive. But we're not talking about people starting new, we are talking people...

  • When the G1 came out, blowhards like you spouted the "M43 is doomed" line for whatever reason. And as the facts refuted each claimed reason, blowhards like you switched to other reasons. Here we...

  • What I'm looking forward to seeing applied to m43 is any tech that will improve how the sensor make use of the light it has available. Like Back Side Illumination, Panasonics beam splitting tech...

  • Even the original E-M5 is better at noise control than the E-M1, if you take the word of the Astrophotography guys on another forum I go to a lot.

  • @johnsmith404 "soft lenses"?! You berk! Diffraction occurs due to the very narrow diameter of the aperture in the iris at high f stops. It's a similar effect to the light though a narrow slit...

  • No mention of the "non modal" shooting displays that the E-M5II just got *sigh*. I'd quite like to have live histogram on permanently, and then switch between Level Meter and Rule of Thirds guide...

  • I think the limit on megapixels of any format is going to be diffraction limits - you hit the diffraction limit at a bigger aperture every time you push the megapixels higher. Theres no point...

  • Diffraction on 16mpx m43 at f/5.6? I don't think so. At f/7.1 it starts getting visible, but at f/5.6 it's fine. Plus the Zuiko 45mm has really sharpen up across the frame once it's stopped down to...

  • Tim, check out this preview again, the high res mode currently does higher res by half pixel offset AND full colour sampling. Hence it uses 8 shots (the first four are full colour sampling at the...

  • Damn, this camera has given me GAS!

  • Unlikely, the GM1 didn't have it either. The mechanism of the GM1 shutter were also a bit odd to fit in, so if there wasn't even room for a normal shutter then I really doubt there's room for IBIS...

  • Replied in Kit Lens?
    But the Fuji 18-55mm that the OP uses as an example of what he's looking for doesn't fit that convention of "kit lens" either, as the OP said, it is $700 if bought on its own, and it has a max ...
  • What I meant was, since the OP was using Hugin to reproject to Rectilinear, he should try putting the lens focal length in the initial dialog box to 7.66mm, because as with most lenses, 7.5mm is a ...
  • That little bit of barrel distortion that you could not get rid of even in Hugin? Try using a focal length of 7.66mm instead of 7.5mm. I've done some maths and 7.66mm is more accurate, and gives ...
  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    One part of the Nikon 1 system design that is pretty much guaranteed to put enthusiasts off? Not having a focus ring on the lenses. Although it looks like the 32mm prime and the supertelephoto...
