Because the poster is quite possibly, and I make no exaggeration here, the worst photographer in the universe. He buys every single camera and every single lens thats sold in a quest to get better pictures.

Its like watching a golfer who's never managed to get a par score, spend tens of thousands on new equipment because it simply must be the clubs which are at fault.

I'm with you. No point in all the negativism and off-topic comments. Best no comment at all!

I'm impressed with the results shown at ISO 6400 and other high ISOs. The casual snapshot seems to be a good use of the GM1. And curiously I'm watching a video on an iPad which may be identical on a folding stand which *is* identical just now.

But that's their choice, and it should not concern you.

I remember when you left m43, complaining how whichever camera it was was a sixteenth of an ounce too heavy for you, then there was the Nikon A / Ricoh GR situation; you bought a Nikon A, then trolled about it, critcising the Ricoh, now you have a Ricoh. It's nearly two ounces lighter, that must've been the clincher.

The point is, I'm waiting for it to happen again.

Please stay, I ,for one, have missed you here.

P.S. Are you going to get the Stylus 1?

So anyone here, who has capabilities not to insult and p--s off other people can expose his opinion on camera low light performance using accumulated experience ?

I am truly amateur and not dare to judge. My E-P5 is too much camera for me, and E-PM2 build is lower to my like( feels too plastic) though with option of Viewfinder & build in stabilization. So, collecting opinions where to go. Thanks in advance.

And thanks for samples. We all often taking memory pictures. Just moments of our life. Not every picture got to be art and nobody forced to reply to this thread.

I saw a youtube movie with the Stylus 1 taking a loong time to AF

I read a review saying it focuses slowly

I'd rather then keep my 40-150 with the E-PL6

How do you do that wonderful trick that makes all your photos always look exactly the sane, no matter what camera you are using. Maybe all cameras in the world are the same after all.

Well, except skin tones. sometimes you make them look bad, sometimes worse.

Please, do not talk about skin tones.

If you want the best of skin tones, you have to use gray card and set custom white balance. I know you can afford gray card, and the whole custom WB procedure takes less than 15 sec.

P.S. Can you post 2-3 landscapes taken at daylight?

There is no need to defend photo perzon from other people. By doing so you are insulting him more than people joking at his photos because you are suggesting that he is uncapable to understand traditional photo qualities. I'm pretty sure photo perzon understands what's going on.

If I had as much money and free time as photo perzon does I probably would be trolling this very conservative forum just like he does. But, I haven't got these so I'm glad photo perzon is here.

Look at it in this way. A lot of people take worse pictures than the OP, and yet they own photographic equipment, in many cases SLRs and other types of interchangeable lens systems. In fact it's highly probably that the average photographic skill possessed by all owners of interchangeable lens systems is similar to, if not lower than, that of the OP. Those who imagine themselves as somehow above this should feel thankful to the unworthy masses as they help expand the market, keep manufacturers in business, improve the competition and are therefore more instrumental in maintaining a healthy and diverse universe of cameras and lenses than the truly skilled minority.

Imagine a world where only those who can win professional driving licenses are deemed skilled enough to buy cars, or only those who are graduates from cookery schools are allowed to cook, or only those who can write reasonable code can own computers. Cars, uncooked food and computers will be priced beyond the reaches of normal people and we'd all be using public transport, eating in canteens and playing with sticks and ladders.
