  • Your choice: 1) Bow down in  adoration to the hordes of gearhead poseurs that spend all their time comparing camera specifications and very rarely get around to photographing anything. In that ...
  • One extra plus for the 17mm 1.8 is the manual focus ring.You may not use it much, but for street photography, particularly with messy scenes where autofocus is unpredictable, and you are working ...
  • The 9-18 is a fantastic lens for mft landscapes, small, lightweight, excellent optical quality. Any marginal loss of sharpness in the corners at f4 is a trivial issue that can be dealt with by ...

    I'm very happy with the results from my Epl5. Not so happy that after a couple of months careful use, the outer part of the shutter button fell off somewhere in the Utah desert unnoticed. Should ...
  • Replied in Big deal?
    Any details of the method for remote triggering using an Iphone? Is it a specific  app?
  • Sheesh, I was only saying "possibility" of police attention as friendly advice, based on the numerous incidents that led to the Amateur Photographer. Campaign for photographer rights.
