  • I just took that phrase to mean that it isn't enough for him. Someone that doesn't shoot with the longer focal lengths, 5 stops may well be enough, and judging by the other review, the G9 fares ...
  • Thanks for that link, Brent. I've not come across any of his reviews before. I think his results back up CameraLabs conclusion. The 2nd graph is using the new 200mm F2.8, which is what Gordon ...
  • I don't know if anyone is complaining, we're calmly discussing the features and merits of this camera. This is after all a gear forum, is it not ?  What's wrong with discussing  what some consider ...
  • Yep, I find Gordon's reviews to be very thorough and fair. One thing he did miss in that the review is that the Oly 300mm comes with a Arca Swiss compatible tripod foot. To me that's a significant ...
  • Yep, that's the one. I saw it had been withdrawn but I wasn't sure if it was by the entrant or by the judges/admin. I guess it means my equal 10th place is now equal 8th !!! Woohoo !!! Not bad for ...
  • CameraLabs review of the Panasonic 200mm F2.8 has just been released and it seems to back up the findings of the German review regarding IS. CameraLabs reports getting around 5 stops of IS with ...
  • Thanks for the link. Another excellent review from Cameralabs. The one pro in favour of the Oly that he missed is it comes with a Arca Swiss compatible tripod foot. That's a huge Pro in my books. A ...

    I agree, very suspicious voting irregularities indeed. I don't  vote or comment on any of the challenges I enter whether it be my own entries or my fellow competitors. Let the masses decide, I say. ...

    I'll take your word regarding that particular cheater. I was referring more to the entrants like the one in the bird challenge you mentioned. If his/her response is to be believed, he/she has been ...
  • I would wait to hear other reports and reviews before making a final decision. This is the first report thus far that I've seen discussing IBIS to any degree. Or maybe wait and try it for yourself ...

    I just don't understand all this cheating. After all, there's no monetary reward. It's just bragging rights and perhaps a boost to ones ego that's up for grabs. I imagine that by cheating  you ...
  • IMO, the price of the Fittest, if it includes the panorama ballhead, looks to be worth the gamble. I've never seen one myself so I can't comment on its quality.

    I apologise, that was not my intention. I meant to compliment you on your photo and threw in what I thought would be a humorous and light hearted comment. Apparently you didn't find it funny either.
  • The 32GB and 64GB 2000X Lexar UHS II SD cards came with a UHS II USB reader. They've been discontinued recently but you may still be able to find some around.
  • I don't see why not. The modern day camera is pretty much a computer (the EM1.2 has dual quad processors !!). Besides, a quick look at their digital camera section shows several reviews of a ...
  • Sorry, the interview isn't in German. I think it may have been in Japanese. I think I saw the interview on one of the links on this site. I'll try to find it but my Google Fu isn't that great. And ...

    :-D
  • Thanks for verifying my interpretation. I thought Panny's claims were 6.5 stops for IBIS only, but I may be completely wrong here. Even if their claim of 6.5 stops was for Dual IS, their results ...
  • From your lips to Oly management's ears. I think I read somewhere that the EM5.3 will come out early new year and will be a catalyst for the long awaited FW update for the EM1.2 . Hopefully you ...
  • I'm surprised that he puts the EM1.2 and the A9 on the same level when it comes to CAF. I thought the A9 was above the EM1.2 as far as mirrorless goes. I've never tried the A9 let alone shot it in ...
