  • Thank you for the suggestion.  I was impulsive and sold all my Canon gear already while deciding on the mft body :(
  • Just to update everyone, I ended up getting the Olympus EM1 mark ii with the 12-40mm kit.  I almost bought the body only with the 12-100 but after trying it out it was too heavy to me for a ...
  • I've read quite a number of reviews over the past couple of days about how horrible video autofocus is on the G85 (and even the GH5!) and got a little worried. I've shot another video of fish in my ...
  • You underestimate the speed at which the fish swim, and they weave in and out of the rockwork in the tank.  Tracking AF is very important.  I've done birding previously and BIF is easier than ...
  • I definitely intend to invest in those equipment and skills over time :)
  • Thank you everyone!  It seems that the G85 is quite unanimously what everyone recommends for me! Just one more question - given how important I personally find autofocus, would the hybrid autofocus ...

  • This is embarrassing, but here's the first video i put together as a sample of the type of video i shoot. Photos would be similar types of views, but stills instead. One additional view would be ...
  • Thank you everyone!  Looks like Canon may still be best for me at this point in time - perhaps switch to an M5 or M6 for portability on vacation with just a single travel lens
  • Thanks Dan, my macro shots are of corals, which don't swim away that's why I'm not concerned about getting up close.  I basically take the shots top down over the aquarium, so for the corals close ...
  • Created discussion thread Should I switch?
    When I first got into photography a couple of years back, the intent was to go birding with my wife, and to take nicer photos while travelling.  To that end, I got a Canon 70d with the following ...
