  • (1) I would also consider the E-M10 II. It is not much different from E-M5 II, but lighter and it also has a built-in flash. I have both cameras. The viewfinder magnification is not an issue, however ...
  • I have two original EOS-M cameras with 22mm, 11-22mm and 18-55. One camera was double kit with 22mm and 18-55mm, the other had in addition a EOS-EOS-M adapter. Those were bought at hugely ...
  • "Womans photo" is this correct wording? I was taught at school to use "women" for plural.
    Native English speakers - correct me if I am wrong.

  • It is getting hot in the $2000 niche - Fuji XT-2, Olympus E-M1 MK2, now GH5. I hope that competition will bring prices down over time.
    Besides this, I like the new body style - similar to G80/G85.

  • Richard: If Canon would disclose the two imagers' topologies (conventional and split-pixel) with key components' dimensions, then those could be compared.
    I was searching for this detail, but could...

  • Some people here have objected my statement about split-pixel sensors having higher noise levels.
    OK. In ideal world averaged signal from two or more independent pixels will be equivalent to a...

  • "In lower light and at higher ISO values, the EOS M5 is behind the competition by around one stop, which is a significant disparity at this point".

    Yep. This is the price to pay for dual pixel PD....

  • Sort of expected... But it may be not enough to significantly boost sales. Tough competition on mirrorless market. Panasonic G80/85 is more interesting camera. A second camera for current EOS DSLR ...
  • Although I agree that E-M5 is a better camers in general compared to the E-M10 (I have both), the E-M10 has some features over its older sister - Wi-Fi connectivity, built-in flash and HDR mode. ...
  • Totally agree with you. I would also add here Pentax K-1 ($2000) and Sony A7 II ($1700). Although these are not exact competitors to the new M-1 Mk II,  they are in the same price range. The new ...
  • Watch out Amazon prices. There was a hefty discount on the 11-22 recently @ European Amazon - 70-80 Euros off. Logically, should be the same in the US too. - 6x9 -
  • Created discussion thread EOS M & 11-22 @ Martinique [3 Photos]
    Love the 11-22mm. The 11-22mm and the 22mm are the jewels. The reason I still keep my EOS M and may want to buy the M5. Both are extremely sharp and are pleasure to use. 1/200, F/10, ISO 100, @ 14mm ...
  • Sony takes things seriously. I have recently bought Sony RX10, despite I already own multiple ICL systems. Although it is a 1" all in one cameta, which may not sound too serious, it has pretty ...
  • Just keep them all! Lenses are an investment since you can use them with any future body upgrade. Bodies are consumables an even if they are barely used they lose value pretty sharply after a new ...
  • Created user review thread All in One 3D Solution
    First-off, Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 is a unique camera, as it is one of the two models on the market (another is Panasonic Lumix 3D1) offering a compete 3D solution in a single package. The ...
  • I tried the A 99 II at Photokina. My biggest disappointment was the viewfinder. EVF resolution does not seem to be on par with the best offerings on the market. Not sure if it was a pre-production...

  • I totally agree about the pentaprism viewfinder. The one in Pentax 645 cameras is great. Size and weight do not matter for studio work. But they certainly matter for the field. People buying such...

  • After two recent announcements of medium format cameras by Fuji and by Hasselblad Pentax 645Z started looking somewhat ... outdated. It is still a nice camera (especially considering the price),...

  • I did ask specifically for the E-M1 II to the personnel, but was told that it was not available for hands-on. Sure, someone from a reputable magazine or Web site would have a better chance :) I am ...
