“rangefinder” for the rest of us

in 2018 after 18 month of ownership I have still to learn.

it is absolut a brilliant compagnion for street and travel, available light photografy. Shooting totally silent Vocal concerts in a church - yes you can.

It is not a studio cam. A PhaseOne will be the choice there. It not a sportscam - not for shooting Pro Soccer, but childrens soccer will be fine.

Anyway.: The e-P1 blew me off. I love it. It was the rebirth of the rangefinder.

The pen F has a decent evf something I really missed on the first pen. Fokus peaking ist great. JPG processing. Filters and colours are beyond critics and state of the art...

but it still does not blow me off like the e-P1 - it is no revolution, it evolution to todays expectaions. ... and a viewfinder ... and a different price tag.
