  • ... when you talk about the best compact cameras today. The RX line is on par with the LXes and FXes. Peter
  • Replied in Sometimes, yes.
    Right, with long lenses and static subjects, it is very useful. For moving subjects, it is useless. Then you need fast lenses or flashes. Peter
  • Replied in I understand
    From what I read, the 1,7/25 might not be much better than the zoom. Peter
  • Replied in I understand
    I was never aware of what my Panasonic cameras were able to do until I got the 1,7/20mm. The 1,7/15mm is quite as good, as is the Olympus 1,8/25, and even the 1,8/17. Perhaps you should try one of ...
  • Even though the 75-300 is supposed to be a little soft near 300mm the difference to 210 on APSc is clearly visible. 300mm on m43 is equivalent to 400mm on APSc. No. The excellent 1,8/25 is about as ...
  • Built quality is great and the grip is very comfortable, if you use small lenses. With the 2,8/12-40 and the 2,8/40-150 the lens diameter is too big to allow my fingers to close round the grip. Peter
  • Replied in 80%
    until last summer. Now I have the Ricoh GR for landscapes so it is down to about 40%. Peter
  • Replied in Interesting
    Looking at the cameras that are used by Peterson and in other articles, I always see cameras with nice built in grips. Grips are taken for granted, that is why nobody needs to mention them. I first ...
  • Replied in Less is More
    I don't quite understand your need to get anything else or why you are not satisfied. However, if GAS torments you, this is what I think: With your style of photography, I'd sell all m43 gear and ...
  • Replied in Yes
    The Panasonic GX8 (and of a smaller size even the GX7) has a nice grip built in, so yes, with these cameras no grip is necessary, neither is it with the EM1. If I want to hold the 40-150 Pro lens ...
  • Replied in Leaf and mist
    this picture is just great! Love it. Peter
  • Replied in camera size
    Go to camerasize.com for the data. However, note, that with these Olympus bodies function follows form, as you will need a grip for the PRO lenses. They might be ok with small primes however (of ...
  • Replied in Whatever
    you will buy, everyone of these bodies is only usable with the 40-150 PRO, if you add a grip. Peter
  • Replied in Wishful thinking
    Yes, a 2.8-4.0/12-60 would be great, if it had at least the IQ of the 12-40 and at most it's size and weight. Peter
  • your gallery proves it, where I found many interesting and some very humorous pictures. IMO this however neither proves nor disproves the title. But I see, others think differently. Peter
  • Cooperation Sony/Olympus see: http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/News/Press/201209/12-0928E/index.html Latest FF sensors: does Nikon have the 42MP sensor yet? Right, but Olympus cameras are. Right. And ...
  • And who would produce the sensors, if not Sony. They have a "cooperation" with Olympus and won't sell them their newest and latest sensors while preventing Olympus to get their sensors from ...
  • Replied in Second thoughts.
    The EM5II started at  1100.- body only Now we might see a 20MP Sony sensor with PDF plus an Epson 4.4MP EVF, a price of about 1300.- body only seems  justified. It looks as if Olympus doesn't see ...
  • Created discussion thread Pen-F kit for 1500.-
    Must be a great camera. http://www.43rumors.com/ft5-few-more-olympus-pen-f-info-announcement-january-27-costs-1499-euro-with-kit-lens/ Peter.
  • Replied in Democracy is
    when minorities are respected. You don't have to read any thing you are not interested in, so why bother? Peter.
