  • I think I would simplify it. Broadly, the E-M5 III should be comparable to the XT30 with the following trade offs: Giving up 1) 2/3 stop sensor performance (latest sensor required to close the gap ...

    What I realized after seeing the teaser is that this is for sports, not wildlife. The big grip allows easy handling in vertical or horizontal position. If it was for birders / fast moving wildlife ...
  • +1. Wildlife is a natural fit for a small ILC like m43. Just need to make that C-AF amazing. Add in a handheld high res mode for when the wildlife photographers want to take their landscape photos ...
  • 16MP way behind 24MP ...and not much ahead of their smartphone's ~12MP.
  • I voted tilt as the camera can be a bit slimmer. Tilt is also great for street - which is what Pen F is ideal for. Video, vlogging and macro really benefit from flip and swivel. That and selfies. G ...
  • A last-generation flagship (E-M1 II) vs a latest gen tier 2 (E-M5 III) will always be tricky when the price difference is not significant. Typically, you want to have 2x difference (or higher) ...
  • One extra significant difference is 1/8000 vs 1/4000. This could be most relevant for outdoor flash work/very bright day with faster apertures (portrait?) when you don't have ND filters. As I ...
  • Not the most informed article and also missing the *big* picture (beyond 2019). A few facts: 1) 2018 was a quiet year for m43 whereas 2018 was big for FF with mirrorless. Olympus is releasing new ...
  • Interestingly the mk III has slightly better ISO performance than mk II. mk III also has significantly improved autofocus speed which may be especially valuable at lower light levels when some ...
  • How dark 'night' are we talking about? The m43 zooms you mention are rather for good (day)light work. In general, you want to be looking at f1.8 or faster primes for night work. That will give you ...
  • I'd take the 12-40mm. You may find some beautiful landscapes or groups of animals which would benefit from the wider angle. The 12-40mm also be useful for various snapshots during the trip ...
  • Thanks for sharing the photos. Sharp! The bokeh rendering looks very smooth and pleasant. Could you shoot a few more against backgrounds that are typically very ‘busy’/‘nervous’, (eg foliage in ...
  • A good point. I wouldn't chose m43 (currently) for birds in flight because of the AF. Nikon APS-C dSLR excels much more here. m43 is an excellent system (probably the best) for 'slow' moving ...

    You're right that 'computational photography' is not defined. It's why I put it in ' '. Some people might say jpeg is computational photography. But I think we can take the more common usage ...

    I would say the 'premium', enthusiast 'travel' and 'street' segment is a very natural one for m43. Although the latest gen high-end phones can work in these segments, an enthusiast will still want ...
  • Does this mean we can finally see a weather resistant range of small primes, especially pancake-ish (<2.5cm long)? ;) Who's for: (1) 17mm f1.9 WR (2) 20mm f1.7 WR (with faster AF)
  • Replied in Sigma 56mm 1.4
    +1 please also test bokeh with backgrounds that the Olympus 45mm renders in a ‘busier’ way. Eg treees/bushes in bright light. i always found the sigma 60mm bokeh more pleasing when shooting against ...
  • 11MP is obviously for 4K video ala GH5S (so for GH6S) I hope the 20MP offers another half step improvement over the current 20MP sensors and also better CAF capabilities. I would be happy with a ...
