  • 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)...
  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Toby K wrote: maybe it's time to go beyond some of the traditional but now unnecessary film-era constraints. 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...
  • Thanks guys, will try a prime.
  • Created discussions Party lens?
    While reviewing my photos from the New Year party, I noticed that quite a few of them (about 5 - 8%) are slightly out of focus. I was shooting with E-M1, 12-40mm and FL-600R flash. The party room...

  • Just a crazy hypothesis of mine… I think that physical size (diameter) of the lens’ front element affects how much of the subject is visible to the sensor. Larger lenses on FF camera can see more...

  • I am used to situations where the lens is larger / heavier than the camera. In such cases, I hold the whole assembly by the lens, and think about the camera as an attachment on the back of the...
  • I ordered mine on 12/10, and received 12/12. I got the lens with E-M1 body; both were in stock, with $200 instant discount on the lens when bought with the body.
