  • Yes... everyone should just step aside, and allow Hillary Clinton to ascend to the throne she rightfully owns! Joe, I often wonder if you are for real, or are just having some fun with us by ...
  • Replied in I agree
    If the price is right, and the lens isn't too large or heavy, it might make a great companion lens for a Panasonic 100-400mm lens, or a great high end travel zoom lens. Personally, I would give up ...
  • Created discussion thread Yet another new PRO lens!
    I knew it had to happen! Olympus and Panasonic have finally run out of lenses to make, so now we will get a really nice high end normal zoom lens which is weather sealed and has an amazing 8X zoom ...
  • A group of around 25 teenagers went on a mass shoplifting spree at a Boston area convenience store last night. When CBS reported the story, they blurred the video to protect the privacy rights of ...
  • See for yourself.
  • Most of the people who work at Walmart would have no earthly idea what an EXIF is. These are generally minimum wage workers who are just following the orders their manager gave them. You can't ...
  • From an ebay vendor in Taiwan. Apparently, they were splitting kits, and yes, it is silver and it is grey market. But it works wonderfully on my GM1. This is one seriously nice lens, and it can be ...
  • That used to happen routinely to me at Walmart! But I never ordered any prints larger than 8' x 10". So that might be different. My defense was always "Be serious. Would anyone intending to sell ...
  • No, I probably won't. I would want one, but won't buy one unless I find some screaming bargain on a used copy a few years from now. My EM1 is just too good a camera, and does everything I need it ...
  • If the rumors are true , then the planned EM1 Mark II will be a nice improvement from the EM1. Specifically, it is rumored to have: (1) 20MP sensor (made by Sony) (2) 4K video ...
  • Replied in I tend to agree
    Robert, After reading all the replies.... and everyone made very good points.... I think the answer to my question comes down to two main factors: (1) Too ambitious a design, with too many compromises. ...
  • Odds are.... Flickr was one of the most valuable parts of Yahoo, with over 110 million users.

    I bet the free accounts with 1 TB of storage will soon be a thing of the past.

  • Replied in A few of mine
    All were taken with an Olympus E30 and 50mm f/2.0 Macro lens
  • Created discussion thread What went wrong with the 12-50mm EZ?
    When it was first announced, this lens seemed like an ideal solution. Weather sealed, nice zoom range, macro mode, FN button, and a power zoom for people who like video. It even has a push-pull ...
  • You can download it from the Olympus website. And this version actually has a lot more information in it than the printed version does.
  • Oh come on! You are saying a GM5 will not fit into any pocket at all? My GM1 plus 12-32mm lens fits comfortably in my pants pocket. It can even fit in jeans pockets if they aren't skin tight jeans. ...
  • Replied in I agree
    If "extra stops especially at night" mean you want a faster lens, then there are several really nice fast primes to pick from. If the OP wants to avoid duplicating his kit lens, then the 42.5mm ...
  • There will not be very many digital cameras made without video. All the angst over "I hate video" will get people nowhere. Their only options is to buy an old camera (like a Nikon D80) or a very ...
  • At last count, there were 12 of you. But the other 35,000,000 people who bought cameras last year wanted a video option. Go figure!
  • Replied in My advice....
    You already own the 12-32mm lens. This is a pretty fantastic kit lens. I think you will love it. If you want a lens to compliment this one, then you have several good options: (1) Get the 35-100mm ...
