I have $1500.00 to get new equipment but not sure how to spend... I have the following list of equipment. 1.) Fuji XPro-1 with 35mm lens 2.) Canon 70D with 18-135mm lens 3.) Olympus 12-40mm PRO lens (gave my EM5 to my son but kept this lens in case I wanted to get EM1) and 12-60mm lens I kept from my old E3. I shoot mainly street, low light and some sports. Do I get an XT-1, EM1 or another lens? I've read posts and reviews and still very undecided. Thanks B.C.

I finally made up my mind to get the EM1. I have both EM5 and GX7that I use regularly.  Should I keep the EM5 or GX7? I like both cameras and have no problem with the mannuals, operation and IQ.   I Like the EM1 because I have a couple of 3/4 lenses and also handling and responsivness.

Hi, I use the 2x teleconverter in my OM-D E-M1 a good bit.  Especially with my 75-300mm.  What I'm challenged by is achieving the same composition in the RAW file that I have in the jpeg version of the image.  The jpeg file is baked with the 2x image when shot, and as you know, the RAW isn't.  So in Lightroom I have to crop the raw image to achieve the same image as the jpeg.  I know that this is a plus feature, but I'd like to be able to see my original composition as shot in the RAW file...

It works, and it works well, even if you have to manually dial in the focal length. It lacks focus peaking, so I rely on a magnified view to nail focus, but the way I have set up the camera, this is just a button press away and since the magnified view is set up to be stabilised it works well enough for me. Hi Macx, I remember your excellent and meaningful comments about...

Hi.  I've just replaced some damaged Canon lenses with an OM-D EM-1, and am very happy so far.  I've only had it for a couple of days, but took it to the kids sports sessions over the weekend and I got better results than with the 60D.  As I'm only just starting out with the camera, I was playing around with lots of settings. The sports mode seemed to get faster shutter speeds than the standard mode, but at the same ISO and aperture. Am I missing something? I'm obviously keen on the faster...

Headed to NJ this next week to see my daughter who's a pilot in the USAF and they are taking me into NYC on Saturday for an afternoon game vs. the Red Sox. We're taking the train into the city, so if I walk up to the gate with my Think Tank Retrospective 5 bag and E-M1 outfit and security says "no way", I'm screwed since there'd be nowhere to store it. I'd like to take the E-M1, 12-40mm f2.8, 7-14mm f4 and 35-100mm f2.8 Panasonic lenses to shoot around the city and just to get images around...

How do you make a small change to a myset and then save it (as if the options for saving a myset should include "update with current settings")?  The only way I can figure to do it is to (1) 'set' the myset you want to modify, (2) make the change, (3) clear (reset) the myset, and (4) then save it again.  This works for me, but it seems unintuitive and too complex for what should be a simple operation(?)

I'm mostly an Oly EM1 and EM10 user, but recently have been looking at the new Fuji XT1 very closely and with a great deal of interest.  So, with that I have a couple questions I haven't yet found answers too: 1.  Does the XT1 have auto switching between the EVF and LCD?-- and if so can it be turned off and switched manually?  Personally, I don't like auto switching on the EM1 or 10 and prefer doing it manually. 2.  What is the file size of the XT1's best quality and largest sized...

I've been looking to buy a camera to supplement or replace my GH3. (I'm generally happy with the GH3, but nothing is perfect, and I have found the telephoto zoom lens selection to be limited.) Most of my shooting is outdoor action, daytime, at fairly long distances (over 80 yards, up to several hundred yards). The MFT format is nice for this due to the crop factor. A 300mm lens can bring things a lot closer. My equipment criteria are: good IQ, good telephoto zoom, good burst rate and depth,...
