rawdinal: How could they show the pictures without the given permission of the maker and the people seen on it. In Europe there are massive restrictions. For good reasons :)

@rawdinal, that's incorrect. Images taken in public does NOT need any permission from those in the images. Otherwise newspapers, TV, or even we, amateurs would be in trouble. Though these images are not taken in public spaces, they seem to be pretty private, but still, if nobody cares then nobody cares.

There are already so many UWA lenses for the Z, why one more...?

Fred the Swede: I guess that because it is in actuality a third party lens whose optics must fit the smaller E-mount any suggestion of the wider diameter and short flange distance Z mount being an advantage is in this case null and void.

I would rather have seen an unrebadged Tamron at a lower price.

It may be that the optics are made by Tamron, but the lens is a Nikon design. Tamron is NOT weather sealed, Tamron has 8 aperture blades as opposed to 9 in the Nikon, and Tamron has a slow AF motor. The Nikon lens is also quite a bit heavier than the Tamron, probably for the reasons above.

On challenge Macro Nature Unlimited! (5 comments in total)

Same question. "The photo must be macro." says nothing about the definition. "Macro" in my opinion is life size (1:1 magnification) or larger image on the sensor, not on the displayed area. A close-up is not a macro. Also, there is no way to check if an image is macro or not, we can easily crop an image to give the impression of macro.

This should have been the ONLY way the focus ring works. As it is, the other lenses are useless for manual focusing. Hopefully the other lenses will follow and will also get this firmware update.

On article Nikon Z30 review (737 comments in total)

I will never buy a camera without view finder if there are any alternatives. I don't know how Nikon was thinking regarding this camera. It's not an alternative to the Nikon 1, or a P&S due to the huge lens mouth and the need of large size lenses, so what's the point? A selfiecam...?

I don't understand people wasting money on this toy.

rainydiary: For the price could get full frame.

What advantage of Micro four thirds againts full frame ?

@Not Ferb; all that is anecdotal. Neither build quality, nor IBIS or anything else you mentioned is proven better in ANY Olympus camera compared to Nikon top models. ...and I am not talking about the Z9, but starting from the Z6 (first version) and onwards to the Z9.

In reply to:

photography-lover: Interesting option, a bit expensive considering the image quality, but together with a 12-40mm F2.8 PRO II it may be a great street camera.

We'll have to see how well it performs in terms of speed, AF in particular.

@Video-vs-photo; Where did you get that from...? Not even the Z9 costs 3x more, and that camera is at least made in Japan, as opposed to Vietnam. Not to mention it is miles ahead in technology. Even the Z6II is cheaper than this Olympus, marginally, but cheaper, ...and better ...and also made in Japan.

Nice camera. Too bad it is made in Vietnam... for that price...

On photo Be-200 at MAKS 2019 in the Firefighting aircraft challenge (3 comments in total)

Very nice image, and a nice plane. Never seen one for real, but I guess it is a fire fighter. It would be nice to see one landing and taking off from water, as well as filling the water tanks skimming the water surface, assuming that is the way it does it.

You should have waited until the guy stops picking his nose and that the woman would have taken her picture and would have gone away, out of yours. He was not going to run away and the picture would have been MUCH better that way.

olyflyer: Very nice. Also very difficult to capture that image on that spot without any traffic. It's always busy there. I know this was early in the morning but still...

I have never stayed in that hotel yet, but maybe next time... just for the view. Did you know that once a year they close the bridge for all traffic and then people walk up on the metal plates and sit there, drinking and eating... and risking their lives...

That's just exactly my point. None of that holds unless you compare apples and oranges.

olyflyer: It is huge and heavy. I am sure it takes nice images, but... At this size, weight and price... why would anyone else than a real Oly fan buy this camera?

That's just exactly my point. None of that holds unless you compare apples and oranges.

Phileas Fogg: Part One: Follow me through all parts.

I was just looking around at comparing this EM-1X prograde/built camera and lens choices to the FF alternatives from Canon, Nikon and Sony.

Ok first yes, I know given aperture a M4/3rds has basically double the depth of field and double the sensor noise... I and I dare say for all of us M4/3rds shooters we get it. But I say 99% of any clients or viewers given viewing the same shots, same conditions, same subject WON'T GIVE A FRIG!

So Lets put a kit together for say sports, motor sports, wildlife, birding.

Olympus

2- OMD EM-1X
1- 300mm. F4.0 pro (600mm FOV equal to FF)
1- 40-150mm. F-2.8 pro (80-300mm FOV equal to FF)
1- 12-40mm. F2.8 pro (24-80mm FOV equal to FF)
1 - 45mm. F1.2 pro (90mm FOV equal to FF)
_______________________
$12,200.00 US.

As usual when Oly users compare Oly with FF, it's apples and oranges. You take Oly f2.8 lenses and compare them with FF f2.8 lenses. That's nonsense. You can't just take the beneficial part of equivalence and leave the negative part out. You have to compare your f2.8 lenses with FF f5.6 lenses and those are considerably cheaper and lighter.
