  • I prefer the simpler tilt screen but the importance of video is moving camera makers to adopt the swivel. I have an E-M5MK I and no intention of replacing it unless it fails completely. However, ...
  • and the return is inadequate to justify the investment.
  • Replied in GM5
    and the 12-32. It's replaced my E-M5Mk I for about 2/3 of my shooting. Why? In a word, size. Add inconspicuous The trade-off is WR and caution in handling. My E-M5 and 12-40 is just about bullet ...
  • But his header is misleading.  This is pure marketing from Pany.  Nothing wrong with that, of course, because that's how the world turns.  But  he really should have told us up front what this was.
  • and at some point it becomes "good enough".  My 5 year old E-M5 Mk I, supplemented by a 3 year old GM5 is good enough at this point.  The difference between 16 and 20 mP is not all that great, ...
  • and connects with your brain is what's "right." I'm not disagreeing with you; my bodies are a GM5 and E-M5 Mk I. But the folks out there who enjoy and use their big FF Canons and Nikon's like how ...
  • Replied in I'm convinced...
    I use my GM5 more than I use my E-M5.  Between the two, I really have no major camera body needs.  But the OP has an interesting suggestion.  Everyone says, "look how small the Sony FF is."  Of ...
  • Replied in E-M5 Mark III?
    There are already some good refurbished deals that Olympus puts out periodically, so depending on what you've got and whether or not the cash is burning a whole in your pocket, that might be an ...
  • I still think a major reason for the Pen was to wring the kinks out of the 20 mP sensor. And the designers had some fun with it and created a neat design. IF there's a Mk II, I'd guess next year, ...
  • but I just ordered it!  Thanks for the lead.  Cheers
  • Holy cow!  Somebody found a box buried in the back of a warehouse in Japan and they're going to make a killing!  That's the way the market works.
  • Rick's definitely right on the flare risk with filters.  I learned the hard way:  remember to removed any filter if you're shooting toward the sun.  Flares are almost impossible to remove.  Slows ...
  • was my solution, and it stays on my 12-32 unless I absolutely, positively need the smallest possible dimensions.  BTW, I have a clear glass B+W filter for protection, as well.  Here in AZ, the ...
  • Pick up a good one and it will serve you well.  But some will serve you better.  Your brain will tell you that.  And it depends on what you want to do with it.  Travel, sports, low light, birding ...
  • Tempe Camera has a few although you have to work through the Fuji stuff to find them. And no particular enthusiasm for selling them They are a Nikon/Canon store so anything else is an afterthought. ...
  • amen! And by the way, my Saturn was an awesome car until the day I sold it.  No guarantees on anything!
  • I know, I know...banal....trite....overused... But there's a ton of folks out there who love their Nikon and Canon APSCs.  And they're great cameras.  Another big group wouldn't even consider ...
  • I found an almost pristine 100-300 MkI for $300, and since anything over about 150 is about 5% of what I do, I didn't feel badly. I use the Oly E-M5 MkI and turn off the lens based IS. Super tele ...
  • Replied in Umm....no...
    Not for me. But as is frequently stated across a lot of threads. YMMV.
  • Great camera in it's day and I still very occasionally use mine paired with the old 14-54 Mk I. But so much stuff out there, especially m4/3s that you could find for the price.
