  • Here's the thing. Whether you think it's aimed at videographers or not, the point is that many of us (Olympus shooters) also do videography/filmmaking and would prefer NOT to have to buy two...

  • Sigh... yet again no 1080/24P. Seriously WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM OLYMPUS

  • Sigh... yet again no 1080/24P. Seriously WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM OLYMPUS?! PLEASE STOP DOING THIS TO YOUR CUSTOMERS!!!

  • Sigh... yet again no 1080/24P. Seriously I really am disappointed. I'm a loyal Olympus customer and I've done nothing but stick with this brand for years. I really don't think that 24P is too much...

  • So I take back what I said about you using the 135F equivalencies just as a marketing ploy. But I would ask you to seriously consider the idea of Range Factor. DPReview holds a very important place...

  • For example you could describe a 28-100mm lens as being a 0.78x–2.78x zoom. It goes from a mild wide angle to almost a 3x telephoto. This is similar to how they describe zoom in binoculars and...

  • @Richard Butler :

    I hear what you're saying, but trust me, even though they do think of it as "28-100mm equivalent" they don't know what that means. They think they know, but they don't.

    The...

  • But the monkey didn't steal the camera. He let the monkey use it. I highly doubt that tiny monkey would stand a chance to gain possession of the camera, or retain possession, unless the...

  • If the flame of that myth ever goes out, it's likely that the 135F market will shrink to the point of non-viability. Fortunately with DPReview on their side, the 135F-makers aren't likely to see...

  • My point is that we should not worry about how to convert each format into 135F-equivalent mm. Instead we should worry about what angle we want in terms that make sense, like the Range Factor idea...

  • @Great Bustard :

    The FZ-200 does not have a 25-600mm lens. Quit lying to people.

    It has a 4.5-108mm lens. That doesn't give me as shallow of depth of field I like to work with. I prefer my...

  • First of all stop calling it "FF" because it's not the only full-frame format. All the formats are full-frame now. Period.

    Call it 135F which is what it is. (135H was half-frame 135, like the...

  • LOL, no, the monkey held the camera, posed, chose the lighting, etc. If I had my camera to another photographer and he takes the picture, is it my copyright then? No. The fact that the other...

  • I realize I'm being intentionally polemical or militant about this, but someone has to. I honestly feel that we need to shift our thinking on this and use Occam's Razor. Why refer to something that...

  • My wager is legitimate and it still stands.

    Also, I'm not angry, I'm just telling the truth. Which is that while I know it has been the industry standard for awhile, I disagree that I would call...

  • My thoughts exactly. I had the Olympus 12-60 2.8-4 for years and it has that moustache distortion. But at the same time it was still the best kit lens you could get until the 16-50 Sony 2.8 came out.
