  • Greg, Great photos - thanks for sharing! I think I will get the 75-300mm; my other concern is the upcoming 40-150mm f/2.8 - I am not sure it will be available before my cruise (September)...
  • Created discussions 75-300mm or an ultrazoom?
    A couple of years ago my wife and I took a cruise to Alaska. I took my Canon 60D with a few lenses, including 70-200mm f/4 IS L. I brought home some nice photos, but I feel that 200mm on APS-C ...
  • Created discussions Cosmonauts use Nikon...
    Collection of lenses, and some amazing photos from space: http://englishrussia.com/2014/07/16/what-cosmonauts-see-that-we-dont/#more-149328
  • I use E-M1, and I was hoping that GM1 will serve well as a second body. My wife likes to photograph with her phone, and my 2nd wish was to introduce her to a small interchangeable lens camera with ...
  • Replied in A hobby!
    I guess this is his hobby – “a regular activity that is done for pleasure” (Wikipedia). In my professional field - building equipment for testing some very high-end audio, I met people who have ...
  • Replied in When? How much?
    I realize that this is an 8-month old thread. Of course, this in not a lens I will bring along every time I am going somewhere. Is there any new information on when this lens will be available, and ...
  • Does somebody has experience with this lens mounted on newer Olympus bodies? Is IBIS helpful / sufficient? I am planing on visiting African Lion Safari near Toronto and my 35-100mm lens may be ...
  • Created discussions Battery for E-M1
    If you are happy with an aftermarket battery for your E-M1, please share the brand and where you bought it from. Also, if you discovered a battery to stay away from, please let us know too. Best ...
  • Created discussions Sony shows a curved sensor
    By curving the sensor many aberrations of a lens can be reduced, and lens design - substantially simplified. I wonder if this ever scales up to large (4/3 to FF) sensors... http://www.eetimes.com/d ...
  • It really depends on what you are trying to take a picture of. Yes, diffraction-wise, a fast lens needs to be fully open for maximum resolution (smallest disk). But we all know that it works great ...
  • This is my intention also. However, is the old recommendation NOT to place Photoshop scratch disk on the same drive as the program itself still relevant?
  • Thanks brn, I was thinking about a hybrid drive, but I don't want to put all eggs in one basket... I remember reading somewhere about Windows auto-managing SSD + HDD combination, relocating most ...
  • I am considering building a new system with approx. 256 GB SSD and 1 TB or larger HDD. I use Photoshop & Lightroom, Office, and Visual Studio. No games. Should I install everything on SSD, or just ...
  • Replied in Long lenses
    Moving from Canon APS-C, I am missing Canon's L tele- lenses, particularly, 70-200mm f/4 L IS. I am using Panasonic's 35-100mm, which is great but a little bit too short, and 100-300mm, which is ...
  • I did not know that orange GM1 is now available in the USA. Thanks for the info!
  • Created discussions Orange GM1 in USA
    My wife was considering a GM1, and, being E-M1 user myself, I thought that it would be a great 2nd / backup body for me too. The problem is, she really liked an orange camera, and my understanding ...
  • Eric, I am in the same situation, and I would consider this lens as a macro lens only. For portraits, there are as good or better solutions (35-100 or 75mm).
  • Exactly what I was thinking.
  • Some lens have a rectangular rear opening, and many lens shades are petal-cut to prevent vignetting in rectangular photos. Other than that, all lenses produce image circles. If somebody would make ...
