  • As pretty much every other MFT camera is cheaper and smaller than the EM1 and EM1X you are spoilt for choice then.
  • Like a lot of people I was confused when the EM1X was announced - it seemed the opposite of what people really want MFT for, but with the long lens announcement I get it now. The EM1X is meant to ...
  • It's very rare to find someone so aggressively in denial and ignorant as FF users. It's like a religion. Truly fascinating. This will be a great lens to against the handful of 800/1000 FF zooms,...

  • Guessing this must be crazy expensive as otherwise it makes the 300 F4 a bit redundant.

  • I think the point is that if you are going to use FF with F9 lenses then you might as well use a smaller format - equivalence works both ways.

  • Replied in Kirkjufell
    Thanks. To be fair, there is plenty of true Icelandic wilderness, but strangely enough that is much harder to get to. The north of the island is much quieter than near Reykjavik too and is where I ...
  • Replied in Kirkjufell
    We recently visited Iceland which has spectacular scenery and rotten weather - I really came to appreciate the weather sealing on my camera! This is a set of photos of the famous Kirkjufell ...
