  • Replied in Not a debacle
    If I need 3 batteries per day, this is 9 batteries for a 3 days hike or about 200 g. To charge 9 batteries I need either a lot of time (more than 30h with changing batteries in the charger every 4 ...
  • Replied in Example
    This image has been cropped with approximately factor 2 and shows the lens near 150mm. What you don't see here is the surprisingly pleasing bokeh. Peter
  • Replied in Not a debacle
    a mere nothing for small walks, but a big problem, if you go on long hikes into more remote country. For me this is the one thing that makes me consider a dslr. There are times when I dream about a ...
  • Check the "problem with modern lenses" at peta pixel Peter
  • Replied in Rendering
    This is in fact a good idea. There was a time, when I thought the talk about "rendering" of a lens absolut gibberish. Until I got by chance a lowly Minolta MC 2,8/35mm. Reds and yellows just pop ...
  • Replied in Yes, why?
    It is eve EUR 2500 and weight 920g. Sigma makes a 14-27mm F1,8  APSc lens with 810g weight at a price of EUR 850 for Nikon, Canon and Pentax. It should be possible to produce a, say, F2/14-30mm ...
  • IS is rather useless for sports as YJPfoto pointed out, you need short exposure times. Another point: The better quality of the Sony APSc sensor will be balanced by the fact, that you have to use ...
  • Replied in A beauty!
    They don't make them like this any more. Sniff! Peter
  • but I have to admit I keep looking to the side, too. Even forward! ;) No doubt about that. But if  we don't wanted "better" gear, what sense would make a forum like this? Indeed, even I pride ...
  • Replied in Alternatives
    The EM5ii is cheaper and WR! Peter
  • Replied in Alternatives
    If you want to stay with M43, you might get an EM5ii, if you like the looks better. Plus a 2,8/12-40? Olympus is known for it's higher saturation and sharpening at default settings. The pictures ...
  • Replied in The last one
    This, for me, is easily the best: great composition. Peter
  • I do most of my photography when walking or hiking as well. So weight is my problem, not so much size. 1. M43 is not ideal for low light and not yet for moving subjects. The latter will probably be ...
  • Is that samething like the Canon QL in the real world?
  • are excellent, the street light certainly has a menacin quality. I also like your birthday portrait, it makes me want to meet the man who radiates this humorous dignity. Peter
  • Replied in BOF
    Your Bee on Flower is very impressive! Thanks for posting. Peter
  • In the evening after sundown. Rokkor MC 1,4/50mm @F2 I wish I had a 1,2/50mm with close focus (25-30cm) and good sharpnes wide open - I still hope for a Olympus 1,2/50mm with all this plus WS. The ...
  • All cheaper adapters are produced in China. Google Metabones for US products, but there you will have to pay about USD 100. What IS interesting though are the Metabones speed boosters for m43. ...
  • No problem; I had 5 adapters costing between 10 and 50 EUR. All wobble a little bit and all except one focus beyond infinity.  But I love to use them and have very nice results. With one I wasn't ...
  • Replied in Leica lenses?
    How about the Leica APO-Telyt-R 3,4 180mm? Relatively small lens, excellent IQ, of course fully manual. But longer reach than you want. There is also the Summicron R 2/90mm or 2/75mm. In good ...
