  • Yep, pretty much. Or GH5. Or you can wait till next year to see what E-M5 Mark III brings to the table. Or Panasonic GX9, if that will ever come. Yes, it is. But Olympus starts offering bundles ...
  • It's all the same as far as image skewing goes. The only difference will be with the amount of motion blur. More motion blur might make the undesired effect of rolling shutter less obvious, but ...
  • Replied in Go for Oly 17
    It's hard to say if that is exactly the case. But yeah, the difference in opinions on this lens is a bit suspicious. Various reviews suggest that this is not one of the sharpest lenses in the ...
  • Yeah, if only Panasonic would recognise that. If they are, and they are planning to continue this line in the future, I hope they are simply perfecting it and waiting for all the pieces to make it ...
  • Hard to tell. Oly 60mm is a true macro lens that goes to 1:1 magnification which means that if you have a subject that is 17mm wide, you can fill the whole frame horizontally with it. Without ...
  • One more vote for GM5. It's the best Micro 4/3 camera. Mine is paired with Panasonic 20mm most of the time and lives in my pockets. It will not fit in a jeans pocket, but if you have trousers with ...
  • Does manual focus clutch on Oly 12 and 17 work differently that the one on PRO lenses? Cos the one on my 12-100 works the same on my GM5 as it does on my E-M1 II.
  • Replied in Go for Oly 17
    Yeah, unfortunately it's one of those manufacturer specific things. Like lens function button of Olympus lenses not working on Panasonic bodies. It's quite annoying, this incompatibility. It is ...
  • Replied in Go for Oly 17
    At $400, I'd say go for it. The lens itself is a bit polarizing, you will read posts of people who love it and those who hate it. I think it initially suffered from sample variation and got a ...
  • ILC cameras offer better image quality not because they have slightly larger sensors, but because you can pair them with amazing lenses that will enable you to do stuff that those compact cameras ...
  • Replied in Depends on combo
    It all depends on which cameras and lenses you compare and how you test. Not only that, different stabilisation mechanism behave a bit differently. It is especially evident if you take a Panasonic ...
  • Well, E-M5 Mark III is scheduled for next year. Q1 if Olympus keeps up the pace, later if they decide to slow down and prolong the life cycles. E-M10, on the other hand, is already late if we ...
  • The biggest problem with G85, as you already mentioned, is that it uses Panasonic's 16mp sensor, which is behind the curve even in Micro 4/3 world and whose inability to do long exposures in a ...
  • They wouldn't. That's why it's not how this promotion works.

    Try reading. It does not hurt, trust me.

  • You really need a very good reason to buy this lens. Do you have one? Fantastic little lens. Generally well regarded for nice rendering and sharpness in the centre. Not really famous for super ...
  • Note that those videos compare this option on two different cameras so the difference in final result is because those two cameras handle those things differently.
  • I have 135mm f/3.5 No. But I can see without comparing that it is not as sharp and native options. Lens Turbo II EF to M4/3 paired with Fotodiox OM to EF adapter, which gave me a bit of a headache ...
  • I do. Not that I have anything to show for it, yet :-) The only actual finished video I did was shot on GM5. But I do enjoy video capabilities of E-M1.2 and plan to use it more when I get back on ...
  • Replied in Perseids
    Those are unrelated. Meteor streak will look the same on a 2 second exposure as on 40 second exposure. Only on 40 second one it might be hardly visible or not at all, depending on conditions of ...
  • Replied in Perseids
    You need to keep the ISO high and use as large aperture as you can. Meteors are very brief phenomena, so unlike for Milky Way, exposure time is largely irrelevant. Especially if your skies are not ...
