  • If you're doing very large prints or heavy cropping, you might notice a difference. If you're shooting in low light, the difference in aperture becomes more important. Likewise if you need ...
  • No one has had a chance to shoot over the weekend?  Guess I need to join the party in X.
  • Borrowing mom's Jeep.  It's older than my van, the handling is a lot different, but only 70K mile and the AC works. You have to admit though, dying a block from the house is worlds better than 50 ...
  • One will have to be kicked over to the X at some point. Haven't been first in the comp in ages, but it cost me...  the van died on the way home (fuel pump?)  yet another expense I don't need  (no ...
  • Haven't been following the UK market, but was there a price incentive or sale going on when you last priced the E-M1?  Sale over everyone has the camera at full list price.
  • Replied in And a third...
    Now to see if I have any for the X
  • Replied in EXIF
    Photo Paint has been stripping my EXIF, but I found a quick way around that- post an unedited photo to the gallery then replace it w the final version... the EXIF from the original remains. Now I ...
  • and it's not the last hour of the challenge! This despite the chickens still keeping me busy, getting a new dog, and house/cat sitting for someone else. So yes, I actually can get something done if ...
  • Replied in If you want
    durability and the best 4/3 compatibility, the E-M1 fits the bill But aren't many of the Panny lenses contrast detect AF compatible?  (meaning they would work reasonably well w any m43 body)
  • Replied in Did you check
    the battery contacts?  Dirty or corroded contacts could cause a power drop as soon as there is a current draw (as in powering AF motor) Or could be something like a corroded circuit board
  • Your needs and usage will be different, but this may give you an idea of what to get... 12-50 bought w camera.  Probably my most used lens, general purpose and works well... I'd trade the power ...
  • Replied in nice...
    should be something for everyone. If anyone is stuck for an idea, here's a list of the songs on the Beatles 16 disk box set. ...
  • a 9-18mm- it will give you the wider angles you'll want for sweeping scenery w/o breaking the bank.  The m43 version is also quite compact.  Pick one up used or refurb to save a bit on the price. T ...
  • Replied in Done...
    and added 'original' images for both my shots to make up for the missing EXIF (I learned clipboard doesn't copy EXIF)
  • Replied in Olympus rubber
    This issue goes at least as far back as the E-1 ...  Actually, I have an OM-PC where the rubber is coming loose. Olympus uses double sided tape to hold on the rubber down... the rubber can be ...
  • Replied in things to check
    Simplest first- Is it set in MF mode? Is the aperture working? Are you getting lens info in the EXIF?  If not, there could be a contact issue- clean the camera/lens contacts, and exercise the ...
  • Replied in Yup
    I'm also waiting for the price of used E-M1s to come down a bit... probably won't happen until its replacement hits the shelves. In the mean time I'll work w my E-M5 until it gives out. The bad ...
  • Replied in I wouldn't worry
    so much about the age of the camera or the lack of future 4/3 development. Rather concentrate on the utility.  Will the camera do what you need?  Are the lenses you need available?  The E-3 is ...
  • Replied in Sounds great
    A timely topic :)  And of course a great shot Now that the starter coop is built and the chicks are out of the house I might get a chance to participate...  Or at least vote the next time around  :0
  • Fastest AF would go to the m.Z 12-40 most range the ZD 12-60 smallest size/weight the Lumix 12-35 (by a hair) easiest on the wallet- the 14-54 MkI (or the one you already have) highest IQ probably ...
