Hi all, this is my first thread here. I have been in SLR world for a while now. I'm using Olympus )M 1 and I would like to switch to digital camera. I LOVE retro-look camera so I have been looking around and here are my list which in my budget range: Olympus OMD-EM5 II Olympus OM-D E-M1 Olympus OMD-EM10 Fujifilm X100S Fujifilm X-T1 Olympus Pen-F Nikon DF is my favorite one but it's out of my budget but once I got better in photography I'll definitely getting one (may be the upgrade one :-D...

I just saw an article in m43rumors.com, and the editor begins with the statement: "The PEN-F is a camera that polarized the 43 community"... I don't think this is true. It might be controversial, mostly because of lack of weather sealing, and high price, but to call it that it polarized us, I think is over the board. It remembers me the same reaction the Nikon Df had upon introduction. This is not the case here, I believe. The PEN-f have very valid and useful features for the street shooter,...

Wish to move from an ASP-C dSLR to M4/3 camera. I got my mind set on either the Olympus E-M10 II or Panasonic G7. The GX7 style doesn't appeal much to me. I come to realize that both cameras got their strengths and weaknesses. Wish to make a decision so I can start shooting some photos. I've absorbed little bits of information from numerous user experiences, skimmed through a few reviews and read some blogs such as those by Robin Wong. Best of all, I went to a store to handle both cameras for...

Hi Folks, Ok, the EM5II is driving me mad again. I'm hoping I've missed a setting somewhere and someone can help. The Panasonic cameras have this annoying limitation of a 1 sec maximum shutter time when in e-shutter. They just won't let you dial in anything slower than that. When the EM5II came out with its implementation - the 'silent shutter' I was very happy because I was under the impression Olympus had not imposed this short limit on their e-shutter. In fact, I could have sworn I've...

I've been shooting with a lot of MF glass with my DF, but all of it has either been AI or AI converted. Just started playing with a non-AI lens and just want to confirm how the metering works. When I was shooting m43 with non-native MF lenses, I'd basically stop the lens down to whatever aperture I planned to shoot at and the camera would meter based on the light coming through that aperture. I didn't need to do anything else. There was no exif information but the metering was correct. With...

Hi, I'll try to keep this brief, I posted something similar in the micro 4/3 group.  I have micro 4/3 and a Pentax k50 and I'm trying to have less gear and gear more focused on my interests.  I like to do family portraits (mainly of my 6 year old son), pictures of dogs, but my main love is bird photography.   I'm trying to figure out if the Pentax K3 would be a big upgrade over my k50 for birding.  I'd also be looking to add a longer lens (55-300 is what I have now), something that can go to...

I was wondering if anyone has seen any extensive test of Panasonic's DFD technology? While some people attribute Panasonic's superb AF performance to its use of DFD technology, some people consider it more of a result of its superior CDAF. Thus far I have yet to see any test that tries to establish how and where DFD could contribute to Panasonic DFD-enabled cameras' AF performance. Would be very interesting to see how an Olympus equivalent lens performs differently on a Panasonic DFD body....

Vivitar DF-583, I can't find a serial number -- and it's not on the box, either. I need to record the serial number for my records; but, I can't find one. I wrote Sakar and got a reply back as follows: "We would like to inform that the serial number can be located at the bottom of the Flash.NOTE: The MID number is not the serial number of the Flash." There is no number so I called and after some consternation, overcame the language barrier.  The guy told me it was the MID number.  I told him...

I was wondering if anyone have experience with the IQ performance of the both the X100T and the GX8 + M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8? The X100T is a very attractive camera, but I wonder if it's IQ performance is going to be comparable, or even better than a GX8 + M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8 combination. I understand that the M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8 is a little disappointing IQ-wise - at equivalent focal length, it is optically inferior to both the Olympus 12-45/2.8 Pro or the Panasonic 12-35/2.8. It cannot achieve the...
