  • Replied in Same here
    Tamron has some nice lenses these days, and the prospect of more high quality optics is promising.  That said, I'm not going to buy a superzoom.  It's the wrong quality/size/price ratio for me.
  • That rumour is nice and I would like to believe it.  Unfortunately, Adobe's recent changes in business model mean I do not have faith that the company is going to meet my needs rather than ...
  • Replied in Too vague
    This is close to my own line of thinking.  When considering lenses, it's the whole package (including price) that matters.  In answering the poll, I selected "Large Aperture" as the most ...
  • So far, all I've seen from Adobe is that LR6 is going to require a 64 bit OS (Mac OS8+, not sure about which Windows versions are compatible). Until there is an announcement direct from Adobe ...
  • At least in North America, it is the most commonly used catalog and editing software.  I also use it as my main post production tool, and plan to do so for as long as I can buy (not rent) the ...
  • Personally, I'd start with the 12-32.  It's a great mix of focal lengths and size, perfect for the wide to normal field of view that will come up on a trip like this.  I'd then add either the 45mm ...
  • I own a set of primes covering off the focal lengths I need most- 12mm, 14mm, 19mm, 20mm, 45mm, and 60mm macro.  Honestly, I'd be hard pressed to part with any of them.  The Sigma 19mm vs ...
  • I did a big cycle tour with the three primes you list and a pair of bodies- at the time, a GF2 and a G2. They make for a pretty compelling little package.  I've since added the 12mm f/2 to my kit ...
  • There was nothing hypnotic about my choice of mirrorless system. Micro Four Thirds had the lenses I wanted in production as well as camera designs that met my needs.
  • For most of my commercial and personal work, raw capture and Lightroom editing gets me where I need to be.  For art shows and other situations where I am pushing the envelope (like infrared ...
  • It looks like a fine piece of hardware.  The IBIS is getting to the point where it would make a noticeable change in my shooting style and allow me to capture images I otherwise could not.  The ...
  • Replied in Juxtaposition
    For much of my life, be it social circles or work, I tend to be the oldest person in the room. It's a little refreshing to be one of the "young" 30 somethings here ;)
  • My primary storage and local backup are on magnetic hard drives. I also use a cloud based service for off-site back ups. -- A photograph is a creative interpretation of reality.
  • I own both and for food photography I find the macro very useful.  The Olympus 45mm doesn't focus very close, relatively speaking, and with food photography I usually have plenty of room to set up ...
  • It's what I did with my old GF2 and I love it.  In camera spectrum control would never be profitable in the mass market.
  • Sampling more data at the time of capture is better than resampling existing data in post.  As such, stitching (done well) will produce better results than up-sizing. Sensor shift resampling ...
  • Replied in Looks promising
    This is also similar to what Pentax is doing with their "selectable anti-aliasing" feature. If this rumour becomes reality, it would certainly be something that would be of value to me and would ...
  • Replied in Not for me
    It's a great little camera but too small for my hands, at least for an extended shooting session.
  • Replied in No
    Most cameras have the same "recommended" range of temperatures.  I routinely shoot in conditions ranging from 0ºc to -30ºc in the winter and while caution is a good thing there's nothing to panic ...
  • 12mm Olympus, 14mm Panasonic, 19mm Sigma, 20mm Panasonic, 45mm Olympus, 60mm Olympus. I'm planning to pick up either the 12-35mm f/2.8 or 12-40mm f/2.8 for a trip next year, almost entirely to have ...
