  • Tony, I am not suggesting that consumer-grade $200 lenses from Olympus and Panasonic should perform like Canon L glass or equivalent. I am talking about absence of professional-grade long native ...
  • They are all here: http://truckyeah.jalopnik.com/report-truck-dumps-20-million-bees-on-the-highway-dri-1714245232 On a more serious note, I don't see any shortage of insects where I live (Upstate NY).
  • Yes, I have this lens and use it - have some good results from our trip to Alaska last year. The lens is quite good, but not outstanding - excellent at below 100mm, but not razor sharp and already ...
  • Created discussions All the telephoto questions…
    It looks like there is no day here when somebody does not ask a question related to telephoto choices for m4/3 system. I have absolutely no problem with that - I asked a related question a while ...
  • Replied in E-M10
    Michael, Thanks for the tip - just ordered the orange E-M10 with the lens. I am sure my wife will like an orange camera vs. a bigger black one! thanks to everybody who replied!
  • Sorry, I wanted to say "not E-M", I am looking for something smaller; I know my wife will not like another "big black camera"...
  • Created discussions Which second body for E-M1?
    I am an E-M1 user searching for the second body to support my m4/3 system, and for my wife to use while sharing lenses. My lenses are a mix of Olympus and Panasonic, so some are not stabilized. I ...
  • Get a relatively inexpensive Tamron 60mm f/2 macro for your Canon. Light and small, 1:1 macro, fast f/2 aperture, nearly perfect optically, somewhat greater DOF than 90-105mm macro lenses. Also ...
  • Replied in An alternative
    If you know in advance that you will have to shoot through the fences, bring a small camera (I use Sony RX100) - its lens diameter is smaller than fence' openings.
  • I never used this lens (I don't have a Sony camera yet), but the reviews I read are less than flattering: http://slrgear.com/reviews/showproduct.php/product/1654/cat/83 http://www.photozone.de/sony ...
  • I agree - therefore, my landscapes range from ultra-wide to near-telephoto, depending on the story and composition. It looks like there is no sharp standard zoom for Sony system - or am I ...
  • Replied in A7R
    Steve, I am also interested in cropping - sometimes to change composition, sometimes to compensate for too short focal length - if your lens is razor sharp in the middle of the frame, you can ...
  • Replied in A7R
    Salah, I was thinking along those lines too. I am still considering one of 3 choices: - Buy A7II now. I think it will eventually replace my micro 4/3 system completely, so I only will have 1 system ...
  • Thanks to everybody who replied! It looks like 16-35mm f/4 is native ultra-wide lens of choice for landscapes. What about normal to near-tele range (35 to ~100mm)? I heard that 24-70mm f/4 is less ...
  • Created discussions Best lenses for landscapes?
    I am considering adding A7II as a full frame camera to compliment my current micro 4/3 system. The primary purpose for A7II will be landscape photography - I sometimes find resolution and noise of ...
  • Created discussions Image size for web
    With a variety of display sizes and resolutions out there, is there such thing as an optimal image size / dimensions for web-based photography presentations? I do not feel comfortable presenting ...
  • Created discussions Do you still run a website?
    Yes, I know, it’s not 1995 anymore, when many amateur photographers had a personal website to present their photos to the world. I am not talking about the professionals, of course – for them, a ...
  • Created discussions 300mm f/4 alternatives?
    I, like many others, am waiting for the 300mm f/4 to be released. I would like to read the reviews first. then, I may buy it, or not... It won't be among my most-used lenses, and I may look for ...
  • Current lenses have the highest resolution in the center of the sensor, when the lens is fully open. Most lenses are improving when closed by a couple of stops because it reduces other ...
  • I just would like to clarify: the sensor does NOT need to talk to the processor DURING the exposure. Rather, when the information is collected immediately after, each cell reports one value to the ...
