    You have your opinion. As legit as mine. Opions are like noses; we both have one.
  • When my camera can't technically do something I ask of it...it's time to move up.  Last occurred in 2011 when I walked into Notre Dame - a huge, beautiful but dark space - and my E330 couldn't ...
  • and...outside the exposure info that you can see....not a whole lot else.  It's small.  However, I live in Phoenix, AZ and there isn't an LCD screen on the planet that won't get blown out by the ...
  • These are just cameras. It's not a life experience. It's not a metaphysical concept. It's. ..just...a...camera.
  • The build quality, quality of the lenses, superb output and the fact that I use my camera most frequently in travel.  My GM5 goes with me in my briefcase to work.  I have confidence in all my ...
  • If it didn't matter to the user, there would only be one manufacturer.  Your hands tell your brain what works. Even though they all perform the same function, somehow they "feel different".  I ...
  • I still have my C5050, E500 and E330. Cant part with them and they're not worth very much anyway. My 5050 was replaced by a GM5/12-32 and my 500/330 by an E-M5 Mk I and 12-40. Aside from ...
  • and for me it's all about the 50-200. Coming from the Oly side, it's a source of continual amazement to me that Oly couldn't or wouldn't recreate their 12-60 and 50-200 in m4/3s. So Pany did and ...
  • for $599, and I'm all over it.  (Hope everyone knows the lead on this comment was with my tongue firmly in my cheek). I LOVE old technology.  Particularly when it's really good, no...great...tech.
  • One more vote for saving up for the MMF3.  Used mine for two years fulltime connecting my 14-54 Mk I to an E-M5.  Worked flawlessly.  It now is connected more or less permanently to my ...
  • Some months back, they offered the 7 Pro version that worked ONLY on Pany cameras for about $35.  I got it and it does work well, as long as you have Panasonic (probably not a problem for people ...
  • Replied in No difference
    Agree with No (or virtually no) difference.  Your profile shows mostly Pany stuff.  If you know and like Pany, there's no reason to stray.  The EPL-7 has IBIS and the GM5 does not.  GM5 has EVF; ...
  • Put an EVF on a GFx camera and you might have some takers on your proposition. Most of the issues of the GM1 were addressed by the 5. And most especially the addition of the EVF. The problem with ...
  • I keep my cars for several years, and generally buy them low mileage and used. I let the original owner eat the 25% depreciation that comes with most cars when you drive it off the lot. My Ford ...
  • I have both and ironically use them primarily on my GM5. i love the speed of the 45/1.8 for family portraiture. Even with the 50 on an EM1, i think the 45 is faster. For travel,  i carry the ...
  • My Olympus 14-54 now resides on my E500. But i have to tell you, having made the switch to m4/3s about 4 years ago, my classic 4/3s gear sees very little use. Both of those lenses were amazing, ...
  • I've lived in Phoenix, AZ for over 30 years.  Every one of my lenses has a high quality (B+W) clear glass filter on the front for precisely the reason you've described.  I've replaced three of ...
  • Replied in And huge...
    If you thought the Olympus 12-40 was too big, a 12-70 would be a positve beast. And it would be well over $1000.
  • I've had two Motorola Moto X's and my next phone will be a Moto Z Play (presuming it's released in the US).  I'm VERY happy with the phone.  You might be able to find a Moto X, Generation 3 for ...
  • pair the size of that module (with the phone attached) to a really good 1" sensor camera or a Pany GM5. Nonetheless, it's an interesting concept, and I'm going to be buying one of the Moto Z Plays ...
