  • like the Panasonic G7 with the things you like to photograph. For Macro and tele the Olympus 2,8/60mm, for the rest a PL 1,7/15 or Olympus 1,8/17 or 2/12 for night skies. Peter
  • Replied in M43 plus APSc
    When travelling  i use a Ricoh GR for landscapes and towns and the GX7 with 40-150 F4-5,6 lens. The GR easily demonstrates that bigger is better, but the M43 combination gives me some reach without ...
  • Replied in 40-150 F4
    I use both the Olympus 2,8/40-150, which is simply outstanding, and the Olympus 4-5,6/40-150 and my sample is very good. However, the 2,8 lens is much too big and heavy as a walk around lens and ...
  • Replied in Fast lenses!
    Fast lenses with apertures of 1,7/1,8 give you the chance to get good IQ without using a flash. My first choice would be a Panasonic GX 80/85 or a Olympus EM 10II - many people prefer the JPG ...
  • Replied in Makes sense
    if it is fast - a 30mm F2 macro lens could be a multi purpose standard lens, otherwise a 100mm F2 macro would be preferable! Peter
  • Replied in Bluethroats
    Same here in the west. Very sad, the bluethroat is one of my favorite birds. Great photo! Peter
  • Look at the RX10iii sample photos with low color depth,  lots of noise and burnt out high lights... However, if there was a m43 super zoom compact with a modest 12-100 F2,8-4,0 lens of the optical ...
  • Replied in AIS Nikkor price
    There are certainly some excellent lenses, like the Micro Nikkor 55 F2,8 and some of the longer FLs - but I think, the main reason for the higher price level is that in theory all AIS Nikkors can ...
  • Replied in Samyang 2/135
    There is a excellent Samyang 135 F2, aqvailable with M43 mount, but very big and heavy. One of the best 135mm lenses there are and ever have been for EUR 600. Peter
  • Replied in Samyang
    There is a Samyang 50 F1,2 which has been reviewed very favourably. It is sold in a M43 version, so no need for adapters. Of course is it not as cheap as a Canon, Minolta etc legacy lens (EUR 410), ...
  • and great composition. I keep returning to this picture! Peter
  • Replied in Simple landscape
    with a frame. View as large as possible. Peter
  • I fully agree; there is nothing like this combination in M43 world yet. And there certainly won't be any birding gear of this size and weight in the next years. Peter
  • Replied in Lovely
    why do these guys never come and visit me?? And I'd  have my 150mm lens ready for them! Peter
  • Replied in price in EUR
    PL 25mm: EUR 450; Sigma 30mm: EUR 350 Peter
  • 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 ...
