About me:

E-M1 and some m43 lenses
E-M5 in a box... maybe I'll send it off to Olympus one of these days.
OM-4 (yay, finally replaced the one that was stolen)

  • If your subject is moving, no amount of IS will help, so for low light action, those fast lenses are still needed. But when it comes to handheld vs tripod, I'll  regularly shoot my E-M1/II and ...
  • Over the years, I've discovered it's not always possible to zoom with my feet.  Maybe there's a body of water in the way, or a busy street, or changing distance ruins the angle of view or puts ...
  • Replied in If it were me...
    I would take one body and the 12-200, plus a wide option (9-18, 7-14 or FE) and a fast prime (my choice would be the 17/1.8, but go w whatever is your favorite length for street). Covers what you ...
  • Your not the only one who took a bit of a break, but I'm getting back into it as well. That bridge is wonderful.  The reflection really adds to the shot.
  • Main Street, Northport, NY looking east. E-M1/II, 12-200 color slightly boosted. Parking garage, lit by evening sun E-M1/II, 12-200, Dramatic Tone filter. Store window, after dark, E-M1/II, 12-200, ...
  • Replied in For birding.
    My wife, under recommendation of a friend who does great bird photography, and over my objections, got a Nikon D7500 and 200-500 zoom. She now had to get a heavy tripod and gimble head because the ...
  • Replied in 14-150 MkII
    That's the lens I keep on my E-M5 which I leave in the car so I'm never caught w/o a camera.
  • Which to get will depend on use. Do you need the shallower DoF or faster aperture for low light shooting? Do you need/want the flexibility of a zoom? Is cost a factor or are you only concerned w ...
  • But I've had my E-M5 and 12-50 out in all day drizzle during a Scotland trip, back when it was new. No ill effects and I still have it. I do not hesitate to take my E-M1/II out in rain or even ...
  • Out and about New Year's night in Huntington and Saturday night in Northport Pilings around Northport harbor, by my headlights. Window dressing Some more shots on the monochrome thread
  • But my current go to lens is the 12-200.  I'll even take it on my night street shooting. In the past I would take my 17/1.8 for night shooting, but with the E-M1/II IS I don't need as much aperture. ...
  • Shadows Guardians of the gate
  • I remember a fallout of Kinglets at a local park.  The ground was covered w them, the bushes were full of them.  Constantly in motion.  Try as I might, I never got a decent shot.  Now that was w ...
  • If I were to try another system, it would be my wife's D7500.  (purchased on a friend's recommendation for birding) I suspect when she actually gets around to using it, she may find my E-M1 more to ...
  • Would you be more impressed if I told you I had two dogs tugging at my left hand the whole outing? Actually, one of my favorite night shots was taken w an E-500 by streetlights.  Had my back to a ...
  • The TG-5 or 6 are the Olympus water proof shock resistant cameras.  Nice zoom range, stuff in your pocket and take to the beach camera.  On vacation I may use my wife's TG-5 more than my E-M1/II.
  • Created discussion thread 12-200 for night/street?
    I like to wander the streets of my little town at night, looking for shadows, reflections, and little vistas in shop windows. At first the 17/1.8 was my main lens, with the E-M5 I really couldn't ...
  • Whiler you are deciding what system to go with, and then which bodies/lenses, why not pick up a refurb Tough TG-5/6?
  • Replied in Technique?
    Maybe try holding the camera differently? I will shoot w my E-M1/II, 300MMf4+2x handheld in less than ideal light.  I've also shot long hand held exposures w E-500, (max usable ISO 400, no ...
  • They took my camera gear, and not much else.  My OM4, 600mm reflex, and two E system cameras and most of my 4/3 lenses.  I think I was more angry than anything else. Insurance paid a fraction of ...
