  • What do you need in the em1 II that is not in the EM1, the em5 II or even the em-10 ? 'Marketing makes you wish for the latest and greatest, but what if the em1 mk II did not exist : you would have ...
  • Replied in GF3
    Is still the camera that I bring with me when I want to minimize size/weight. gf3 + 14mm and 45mm makes a great little kit.
  • Why do you compare the em1 II to the A7 II or the Xt-2 ? Do you need the em1 II ? You used to have an em5, why not switch to the em5-II or the em-10 II or even the GX8, etc ? If there are some ...
  • Replied in 20Mp Vs 16Mp
    There is still a significant pixel increase. If the noise is the same, that means that the signal/noise ratio has improved and this should in theory lead to a significant increase in IQ. This is ...
  • In your place I would first put it on the body which I own and use it : if there is something that does not work the way you want, you can then try to fix that particular problem with another body. ...
  • Replied in Best ad so far !
    Your pictures and writings really make me want this lens ! Fortunately for my wallet, I know that most of that comes from your skills : your pictures would be a little bit less beautiful with ...
  • Hi, thanks for sharing. I know nothing of macro on insects, so take my comments with a grain of salt. Beautiful colors and pictures, I like most 3 and 4 but I can see some improvements for my taste: ...
  • Replied in Nice review !
    I also enjoyed you 12-40 review, seems scientific and unbiased. One comment though : on the bokeh side I think you are getting to a conclusion rather quickly : you use one single test shot to give ...
  • You switched because Nikon did not have anything smaller (it seems): you could not remove the grip. Now consider someone with an Om-D who now wants a bigger grip : should he switch to nikon ? ...
  • Replied in Yes !
    After the first one, I was tempted to follow the general knowledge and say "No", because of the unflattering distortion. But most of the rest is really really good Great work !
  • edit: reply to 007Peter What kind of proof do you want ? You were not able to define precisely yourself what you want. Yeah, you want the "007Peter Wow" effect. There are plenty of pictures taken ...
  • You keep trying to oppose to what I say, but I don't think we really disagree. Again I never said that you needed to be perfect in any departement. I never said that the technical perfection was ...
  • Yes, you are right, technical perfection is not important. All the same with photos. That is why 4K for consumers feels stupid to me. However, you need "good enough" in more departments not to ruin ...
  • I think releasing a video of good quality requires a lot more time, effort and wider skillset than photos. Just for the time I could probably take and post process 50 good shots before I come up ...
  • Pretty cool prize  : I guess in that case my suspicion would not be justified unless they keep a right to the pictures that did not win as well.
  • Congratulations for the shot. However, if there is no compensation, I'm suspicious about entering competitions, because they feel like tricks from companies to get free pictures. It is nice to get ...
  • I completely agree with that. It seems you have a pretty good setup for the price for you most demanding task (shooting runners). If you are used to that, the switch to m43 might cost a lot ...
  • 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 ...
