Englishman in France's recent activity

  • Thank you very much for the compliment, it is really appreciated.
  • Thanks for the really interesting reply.  I initially thought the choice of materials on the E-M5 mkiii was a shame as well, but those magnesium alloy bodies quite heavy.  It looks like an ...
  • It sounds like you waited until the GX7 came out before upgrading the GF1. It was a very good replacement. My GF1 is still going strong too. My eldest daughter somtimes uses it, and I take it ...
  • I knew you liked the Olympus Pen series! It was the lack of EVF that stopped me getting a E-P5, but I really like its rangefinder styling.  I would have chosen the Pen F if it had been a similar ...
  • Yikes, that's a lot!  Why so many changes ? And I felt guilty about buying the E-M5 mki because the GF1 was still a perfectly good working camera!
  • Created discussion thread Four M43 cameras in 10 years
    I have been using M43 cameras for over 10 years now, starting with a GF1, then an EM5 mki, an EM10 mki, and finally a EM5 mkii. Choosing my first mirrorless camera was a no brainer back then, ...
  • The gentleman in the second shot is going to win a lot of prizes.  I like the duck shots too.  You can invent your own stories behind them.
  • A very nice experiment and drinking game.  I like the way the wine has focused the image in the second, but my favourite has got to be the flute.
  • Replied in Country Life
    That's a really nice series.  The first one makes me smile with the vegetable stall outside the farm.  My favourite is with out a doubt number 3;  an interesting subject and a great composition.  ...
  • Replied in Cats !
    You are absolutely right.  I was worried that the ball of fur on the seat would not be identifiablen but it is a better photo. (I do like the odd things that people leave outside their house.  That ...
  • Replied in Out and about.
    As everyone else has mentioned, #2 has is really nice with wonderfull colours and light.  I really like the last as well, with the dramatic clouds.  A very nice set.
  • Replied in Leap of Faith
    I am getting vertigo just looking at the photo and imagining doing that !
  • Replied in October garden
    What a beautiful garden and view.  As NVC commented, I like the pastel colours too.
  • Replied in Cats !
    This series is themed, and specially dedicated to Yaelle.
  • That second shot is a stunner.  Well captured.
  • Replied in F/2.8 is F/2.8
    It's a ratio.  It corresponds to an aperture size that is 35.7% of the focal length.  And, well, a ratio is a ratio.  It's difficult to argue otherwise, unless you are bad at mathematics. So many ...
  • Replied in EM 5 mkii
    The EM5 mkii is a major upgrade for everything except IQ.  I own both....my mki broke so got a cheap mkii without lens. It is a very nice upgrade, and you should be able to find a cheap one quite ...
  • Replied in He-he-he
    I could see the option to still shoot M43 gear, but didn't see the option which specifically read PANASONIC.  Not wanting to stereotype Olympus shooters, as I shoot an Olympus too, but, ahem, you ...
  • Congratulations.  A great set. It is really interesting to see which photos you picked out of your rather impressive portfolio.  You have the knack for observing and capturing the unusual.  Well ...
  • The two lenses are very different from each other. If you know what your needs are, then the choice should be very simple. I have the 12-40mm and while it is a useful lens, it often gets left at ...
