OM mani padme hum's recent activity

  • Thanks Stuart. Since the turnaround time is limited and the lens still sorta works I'll try the tape. They really should do things better though!
  • I'd be reluctant to consider using anything slower than f2.8 indoors, and sometimes even f1.8 can be marginal, depending on the venue and lighting on the night. I've tried using the slower zooms, ...
  • My silver lens bought early this year here in Australia failed like all the others a few days back. I could attempt to send it back for warranty repair, but am going overseas in a few weeks - is ...
  • Considering how much use they get relatively, I should sell most of the primes, though they do get out occasionally. Most of the time the Panasonic 12-35 & 35-100 f2.8 zooms do the job, or else ...
  • FWIW I was in Iceland last year and didn't think it was horribly expensive. There are budget dining and accomodation options, and prices in general seemed somewhat cheaper than Norway or Denmark, ...
  • In 2014 I took a Sony RX100 III with a pop-up viewfinder to Europe and hated it. (That wasn't the only thing I hated about the camera.) The GM5 with the 12-32 is about as pocketable as the LX100, ...
  • The only reasons to get the 12 over the zoom are 1 extra stop in low light, and more compact size. Otherwise the 12-40 is at least as well made, manual focusing is IMHO smoother, plus it's ...
  • Ideally, I'd like to see Olympus do a GM5-ish camera with weather-sealing, a bigger EVF, IBIS, and if possible a tilting screen. Sort of like a shrunken Pen-F. FWIW, I took an RX-100/3 overseas ...
  • The 12-50 came with my OM-D but has seen little use, though I can see how it might work for others. While f6.3 might be okay outdoors in relatively bright light it's much less useful indoors. The ...
  • So, I've just come back from a 4 day music festival. Almost all of the pros were using Canikon and f2.8 zooms though there were a few with Leicas or similar, and one person with m43. If one has to ...
  • So, I have a similar problem. Will be travelling in India/Nepal for two months, including trekking and maybe cycling. I do not want to carry a laptop or tablet, but will be taking an Android ...
  • I've ended up with both the 35-100 and the 75; my main use for both has been music festivals and gigs. The 75 is a great lens and IQ is stellar, but I got sick of swapping lenses frequently; ...
  • Can't help with the grip question, but the GM5 feels okay to me with lenses up to the 35-100 f2.8 (IMO). The Olympus 75-300 is overkill though, and feels too big and heavy to be comfortable. With ...
  • Replied in OMD-5 Mark 1
    FWIW, I haven't noticed issues with shutter shock despite many low light photos indoors. Whether you might find the 12-50 kit lens useful or not depends on what you'll be using the camera for. In ...
