I would like to have a MF system before I get too old to put it to good use.
Just to try it out and play with.

Peiasdf: Nikon, Pentax, Panasonic and Olympus are on the way out. Nikon and Pentax because they are small company and stick with DSLR when the market is fast moving away. Panasonic and Olympus because they pick the wrong sensor size. A size that's boxed in by super compact 1" and cheaper APS-C and FF.

Olympus is not going anywhere but up! IMHO

garyknrd: With PS and the new noise or de-noise software, IMO it makes current upgrades a tough sale.

You are lucky to have such good sensors. ISO 8000-12800? Those are ISO's I would never dream of. For me 3200 is max. And the software does a good job for me at that level. I shoot with Old cameras.

I cannot wait until Magic Lantern brings usable 4K to the Mark IV in a few years. Then I will buy a used one. Thanks Canon.

I have a feeling RICO is regretting the purchase of Pentax from Hoya. Hind site, but looks like Hoya got rid of it in just the nick of time.

garyknrd: I headed over to look at the stock! Evidently the market has not reacted to the news or it is BS?
P/E is strong and earning are good.
Love to see a panic in a stock like this for a good buy, ain't happening here.
IMO you will see Canon start sliding before the Micro 4/3 biggies will.
Canon is desperately trying to find a good alternative.

Hope you are right "Ultimax" time will tell.
Never know "not k" sometime the market reacts crazy. Look at the Mexican stocks. Trump was elected and they took a nose dive for no reason other than talk. I agree Panasonic is not hurting at all.

When I read reviews like this I think of this guy.

He has some views on consumer spending, The way the wealthy people and company"s operate and advertise I happen to share his views.
I think consumers need to be informed to make better decisions . So, I like this article.

garyknrd: I have a old Olympus 50mm lens about 30 years old, I will take 1,250 for it...
It screams Olympus retro... truly an amazing lens and a steal at 1,250.
Free shipping. :)

Yes it will! :)
I have that camera also, along with a soligor 300mm prime and the 50mm lens.
Next time back home I am going to buy some film and have some fun... I'll try to post some photos with it.
Cheers

rrccad: that's honestly going to be stupid crazy if they do that ban more wide spread. there's no way I'd fly with my laptop in the checked luggage. I'd honestly have to strip it down, remove the drives, etc before packing it into my luggage.

rrccad, I thought I did not have a problem. Then they told me I had to check my cameras. I had two lenses they let me carry on. The limit for me was two carry on personal items. So my laptop had to be checked! I was sweating bullets. I am scheduled to head back home in a few months and i am not looking forward to the flight in the least.

garyknrd: My last flight about two months ago. I had to take out my cameras and check my baggage. Luckily, they let me carry my lenses on board as carry on. I have never seen this before. And this is before the ban? And, not in the restricted areas listed.
You don't mess with the airlines, they were very rude and told me if I wanted to travel not to bring my big lenses.

That is good to know rrccad. I am planing on a trip that direction in a few months I hope. I love that part of the world.

This was a flight from Dallas international airport to Japan. Never had a problem before. Usually these international flights are very pleasant. Fortunately the air hostess was very nice and let me store my lenses in a small compartment close to the kitchen area. I carry big lenses and it was a major pain. Especially when in the airports on layover. Personally I think it is going to get worse. Am thinking about changing systems so i don't have to carry big Canon lenses. Just not worth it anymore for me.

I shoot a Canon 7d, 1d mark IV, OLD. About 1 in 5-10 at F/4. IMO chasing small up date's is nonsense for amateurs.
