  • Created discussions Dynamic Range Difference?
    Have read a few times about hos the M1 has great dynamic range. How much better is it than the M5 (I have one), or earlier? I would assume the M10 and PL7 will have the same, or less DR?
  • Or maybe if you have an adapter, you can use the bigger 4/3 Zuiko 50mm f/2.0 ED Macro 1:2 ? It focuses a bit slower on all but probably the M1 body, but it is a good alternative. I have one, and ...
  • Yes, it really is. A must with the older "big" Olympus E series, and it is certainly much better optically than the Panasonic 100-300mm on the micro line, if you have the Oly Micro M-1. And the ...
  • Replied in Thanks
    Lots of great info and thinking here. It helps a lot and most appreciated. If I can sell a bit of big Olympus gear (E-3 and 50-200), I'll be in the 12-40 f/2.8 ownership.
  • Olympus 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 Zuiko ED Lens - $475 (us$) : This 50-200 lens is the first generation and not the SWD version, but it is still a great lens and very responsive. NO issues with the lens ...
  • Yeah, knew about the 7-14 and flare. Didn't know about fitting a gel filter slot to it with a 2A or E.... Thanks for that info
  • Created discussions Landscape Lenses
    I know there are a lot of "what lens to buy" threads in here, and unfortunately I'm adding another. Sorry. But I'm interested in landscape shooting, and want the best lens options. Obviously, you ...
  • Olympus E-3 - $300 : This E-3 is pretty awesome in appearance and performance. It has under 5200 shutter clicks, for those that like that info, and that is LOW considering the 150,000 shutter life ...
  • I got run off by a security guard at an outdoor mall before. Said I couldn't take pictures there. Ask them why and they said that the stores have their names and signs on the building and such, ...
  • Some really nice images in there. Some made me hungry. The daughter with tongue sticking out of her missing teeth was really nice. Anyway, wondered about this comment: Is it the best camera and ...
  • Created discussions Bye Bye Long Lens
    If you have the Olympus E-M1 or the E-M5, which of these lenses would you get rid of first, and why that one....? Olympus Zuiko ED 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 Non-SWD w/ tripod adapter (note, not a Micro, ...
  • I replied to the earlier post where yes, I got the number backwards. The 12-60 is 1.5x heavier than the 12-40. Nuts? Seriously? A dang honest mistake and people like your smarty pants but claim ...
  • Yes, my bad. I got those backwards. The 12-60 is 1.5x heavier than the 12-40.
  • Created discussions Oly 12-40 is too big/bulky
    So I have read and pondered the Oly 12-40 purchase for awhile (like a lot of people, probably). I read the "arguments" over zoom versus prime, and the size/weight/bulk stories. So I wondered if it ...
  • Actually, the best camera I have had, all around. It just feels great, handles great, and all that stuff that E-1 people know I'm talking about. I'll never lose mine.
  • Replied in Dynamic duo
    I like your comment. Spot on. but what happened the person on the right? They got ashamed and just vanished, leaving trace amounts of stuff behind?  ;-)
  • I have read this whole thread twice and I really like the discussion. I have the same problem, of sorts, but my problem is I want the 12-40, but in trying to save the money for it, I keep buying ...
