  • Replied in Control Dials?
    well - G9 placement is different from GH4. So... hard to tell :)
  • Replied in Control Dials?
    One of the questions I have, coming from the EM1.2 is how convenient are the control dials. You mention it, but could you elaborate? Most specifically, the rear control dial seems to be very much ...
  • The Sigma is half a stop faster. The pana is 1mm wider. The Sigma is WR, Pana has DFD. All that is BS. The PanaLeica 15/1.7 is amongst the very very very best m43 lenses. It is not only extremely ...
  • I don't really agree with that statement. I own an EM1II and GX85 because they were the best fit for my "main" and "small" camera. I've owned an EPL7 before as my small one but the GX85 was a much ...
  • Satisfactory is such a subjective term that I find it hard to answer. 20 years ago, people found the images printed from ISO1000 films satisfactory, given the limitations. They were extremely ...
  • that's a bummer... this feature has kinda grown on me on the Olly...
  • Hmm.... maybe you are confusing. there's also a setting that allows you to do focus limiting. With PreMF there's no "range" - it's a specific distance focus.
  • Created question thread Pre MF on Panasonic?
    Hi, In the recent EM1II Olympus added a focus mode called "Pre MF". It essentially allows you to choose a predefined focus distance, and revert to it on half-click. This is very very useful when ...
  • There are plenty of comparisons online. I can only say this - I switched from 7-14 to 8-18 and couldnt be happier.
  • What about the 300/f4 on a Canon 7DII? that is 480mm FoV.... and at F/4 on APS-C it is similar to F/2.8 on m43....
  • So... before shooting Olympus, I shot Canon. In almost 20 years and multiple bodies and over 20 lenses, I had ONE problem with ONE lens (aperture mechanism got stuck, and that was on a consumer ...
  • I have EM1.2 and GX85. I like the interface on the Olly better for the most part. The Olympus SCP is far superior (IMHO) to the Panasonic menus and quick access. The main benefit for me with ...
  • Replied in Too big....
    Well - I've seen some online size comparisons: https://www.apotelyt.com/compare-camera/panasonic-g9-vs-olympus-e-m1-ii For *me* this is sort of a deal breaker. The EM1II is already a little big in ...
  • Replied in E-M1II vs G9
    do you have references to that?
  • well -but Olly with 1.4X TC gives you 420. not 280 :)
  • Created discussion thread E-M1II vs G9
    Kinda obvious question.... Probably biggest interesting differences: - Much bigger EVF on Panasonic - Faster mechanical FPS on Olympus - Can DFD Deliver similar AF performance as PD on EM1II? - Is ...
  • Replied in MID RANGE?!?!?!
    This camera matches or outperforms the EM1II in (almost) every aspect. The one that remains to be seen is the ability to deliver accurate tracking focus with DFD at such speeds. But on paper - it ...
  • Created discussion thread Holy Smokes!!!!!!
    3000$ for a 200/2.8?!?!?! Someone lost their mind....
  • Created photo thread 12-32 goes to Boston
    The 12-32 keeps surprising me for the better. Shot with the 12-32 & GX85. Edited in LR/NIK.
  • Interesting point btw. I feel the GX85 is already "large enough" to hold its own with larger lenses too. I used it with my 35-100/2.8 (larger than the 45-150) and it was quite comfortable to hold. ...
