  • I can't see how it wouldn't be. I have had my X-T10 for three (four?) years and it is giving excellent service carrying either the 35mm f/1.4 or the 60mm f/2.4. I am saving up for an X-T2 but I am ...
  • Nope. I like all my Fuji cameras enough that if there was no upgrade path available--or I didn't like or want the replacement model for some reason-- I'd simply replace my lost or damaged camera ...
  • I use both and much prefer 40mm for most things where the 35mm is commonly used . (The big exception is cars.) I'm sure this is purely a matter of personal taste. I can only describe the ...
  • Replied in E-M5 today
    I like the idea that if I go ahead with the E-M5 idea I may find the camera to be everything I want right now. I do print occasionally  but only small (hand sized) prints.
  • A wide range of products are offered!
  • Just out of curiosity, how do you carry/secure it?  Neck or shoulder strap? Where are the lugs?
  • I can't imagine owning an MFT camera and not buying the Panasonic 20mm eventually. The 40mm pancake is a longtime muse.
  • Replied in Only ...
    Oh, i do want them. A feature list is important for comparision. But i also know I don't use most of the fancy features on my current cameras, several of which are also older models. So lack of ...
  • I think people who have the Pen Fs must really like them and are keeping them. The one really good used example I've found was priced right up there with the refurbished models from Olympus. I was ...
  • I've always wanted to play around with a Sony R1. I think if I ever found one in good working condition at a bargain price, I would find it irresistible. I dream of finding an Epson R-D1 at a ...
  • Formal portraits, maybe not, but 40-45mm equivalent is great for pictures of people in context-- artists and craftspeople at work, for example or "environmental portraits"  of people in cafes or ...
  • First of all, thanks for all of the responses. Did not realize the thread had woken up again and am catching up. But I really want to reassure people that I know exactly what I am getting into ...
  • Replied in Better to ...
    Features are only critical if you need or want them.
  • Replied in E-M5 today
    As a strictly jpeg shooter I want to stick to Olympus.
  • My advice to anyone considering buying a prime lens is to choose the focal length first. Prime lenses of different focal lengths "see" different things. This is the lens's field of view. (And yes, ...
  • My first suggestion, if you haven't done it already, is to buy a new battery. Older  cameras often have older batteries and older batteries don't hold a charge as long as new ones. If you have ...
  • In my secondhand stable, the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 I bought for $330 really stands out in terms of value for money. The aperture ring is maybe a bit sloppier than it would be in a perfect world, but the ...
  • Very cool. Give your daughter out congratulations on her very cool new camera. ( after she gets it, of course.) And a Fuji, too! Next stop, an X10. And then the world.
  • Replied in Prime lenses
    The latter is mostly how I work day to day. My other favorite solution is two cameras, one (usually a small camera) with a 35 or 40mm equivalent field of view prime for general purposes, and a ...
  • Replied in Prime lenses
    To me, every kind of shot I do except for animals at the zoo and birds under the feeder. I like a zoom for telephoto ( mine is the Pentax 55-300mm) but for everything else, a prime. Primes are good ...
