  • Hi jerseyjim Thanks for the reply. I have wanted to go on a picture taking trip to NM for the big balloon festival but it is far from home. NJ is much closer and I love the area. Can you tell me ...
  • Great assortment of balloons! New Mexico?
  • Indoors my Em10ii is noticeably faster. Both are accurate when they do lock in. I recall in one review reading that the m6 has better focussing speed but do not have any personal proof of that. ...
  • Created question thread Focussing m6 vs m100
    hi I have an M100 and find the focussing speed rather slow except in daylight. I heard that the M5 and 6 are faster but have not tried either. Does anyone have experience with the m6 or 5 compared ...
  • Agreed about Nikon live view and autofocus in video. Just very mediocre. The P lenses on the newer models make the experience somewhat better, but still not comparable with even the lower end dual ...
  • Replied in 22mm Quandary
    Hi thanks for your replies.  Exchanged it and this one is more balanced so I think that the original was de-centered. This is the first lens I have ever had in recent years that had an issue ...
  • Created question thread 22mm Quandary
    Hi I just purchased a 22mm lens. While sharp in the center and ok on the left side, it is noticeably less sharp on the right. Top to bottom about 0 to 20% in toward the center.  I know there may ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon D750 vs Z6
    in Canada the D750 is significantly cheaper than the Z6 making the D750 a deal ($900 less and with the 50mm 1.8 lens) With specific reference to autofocus particularly Caf and image quality for ...
  • I already stirred the pot in my Mx-1 rant (Ok M1x) with my comments about the acceptance by specific non M4/3 users of the M4/3 format and what prompted that acceptance. But this thread is more ...
  • Replied in NY MX-1 Rant
    What fun... As the original S disturber I want to clarify some things. My three neighbors had no knowledge of M4/3 systems. Nikon all the way. I find this until recently quite typical of many ...
  • Created discussion thread NY MX-1 Rant
    The "reveal" of the new prof Oly body gets me head scratching. It is really about the possible physical size and price. Currently a Nikon D750, admittedly old school tech, sells for $1900C (and ...
  • Created discussion thread Panasonic G7 Question
    HNY everyone! Just a Quick question. The G7 with standard lens and 45-150 zoom is currently selling for $599 Canadian. Multiply by 0.7 for a rough US $ comparison and you will see it is a good ...
  • Thank you R2D2. Your advice is always thoughtful. Tried the Center cross type point only and it is a closer match to the live view pic. Too bad the sl2 was shackled with the 9 point focussing but ...
  • Created question thread SL2 Backfocussing Question
    HNY (well almost). My wife’s SL2 back-focusses enough to be noticeable compared to the same pic through live view. This with the standard 18-55 lens. I have the opportunity to exchange it or send ...
  • I bought an returned m100 for $359C and it is a nice camera at that price. Why I did it was to see just how the two sensor sizes compare. First it is a pleasant camera to use with reliable ...
  • My vote is for the grip. The Oly grip is probably my best purchase for my EM10ii. It certainly does help with the 75-300 lens which I find to be rather hard to hold in the field without the grip, ...
