  • Replied in APS-C...
    APS-C would really be a problem and a threat to m43 if nikon, canon and now sony  focused their strategy on it. At the moment they still try to push the enthusiasts towards FF. If Canon, Nikon and ...
  • With the death of compact cameras and the rise of smartphones, it seems harder and harder to sell small cameras. M43 enthusiasts know that the GM series is capable of the same IQ as the GH or EM-1 ...
  • Well, I don't think they have covered the "small" range that well but it is another debate. My question here is : was it possible to make a smaller 12-100 f4 ? I have the feeling that it was, at ...
  • Replied in Too big for me.
    Considering my priorities, the 12-100 is way too big. I would have thought that having only F4 all the way would mean a size roughly similar to the 14-150 f3.5-f5.6. I would even accept the size if ...
  • Well that is a great advantage in my opinion. I thing GAS is a terrible problem 99% of the time as it is a non-productive distraction. I find getting good pictures with the gear that I own much ...
  • Replied in flooded
    Yeah, I guess that would be the right word to describe what I'm feeling as well. I had a friend who was recently asking me about my gear and advices on cameras, and even without the new cameras and ...
  • Created discussion thread More announcements = less GAS ?
    Funny with all those cool announcements, I thought I would be completely overtaken by GAS. In the end not so much. The new cameras and lenses look really cool indeed, but somehow, they look all so ...
  • Remember the photo leaks of the em-1 (MK1) a few years ago. They showed very unflattering views of the em-1 and a lot of people called very ugly which was probably not very appreciated by the ...
  • You are missing the main question: "why are you now only wanting the pro-level lenses?". New and supposedly better gear will continue to try to reach your wallet. Marketing departments do all what ...
  • If I follow what you wrote, if you were stronger and could carry ff gear, your notion of "good enough" would change and you would carry more ? If you were weaker, you would satisfy yourself with a ...
  • Yep, getting up earlier could be the solution. But maybe the birds won't be out. Maybe you have to wait 6 months for the sun to be lower. In the end maybe it is just not the right lake to take ...
  • Yeah, the bird was at the wrong angle and you did not have time/possibility to move around. Well doesn't that just mean that you were not at the right place at the right time ? Why try to make the ...
  • I think this article made me understand a bit more why m43 seems to be the right system for many people despite what the numbers say. So OK, you will always have a disadvantage compared to other ...
  • The 25 f1.7 is a recent cheaper panasonic lens that sold for as low as 99$. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1182677-REG/panasonic_h_h025k_25mm_f_1_7_lens_for.html Yes, my most used lens is ...
  • Replied in Nice !
    Love the "o nom nom nom" and the "derp" ones ! The colors are really nice as well.
  • Hum... difficult decision to buy everything in one shot. I can give you my point of view : get a normal fast lens. The 17f1.8 is not that bad, it just faces strong competition. I take 70% of my ...
  • How could we tell ? We haven't shot that wood with our lenses. Maybe your lens is average at f1.4 but exceptional at f2. The only way to determine whether our copies are better than yours would be ...
  • I started using MF quite a lot to take pictures in dim light when i don't want the light assist to bother the subject. Focus peaking has proven very handy (em-10). Otherwise, I some time also use ...
  • Congrats for the nice opportunity ! Instead of starting to think about gear, I would advise you to think about the pictures you want to take, how they will look in a wall of 120+ pictures. -all the ...
  • In terms of subject and composition, I don't find those picture beautiful. Nothing really interest me in those pictures. The light is harsh and the colors therefore not very nice. In terms of ...
