  • I note that Panasonic's financial year starts at the beginning of April. Each fiscal year is named for the year it ends in. So they are now in FY 2018, about halfway through. When I look at the ...
  • This rumour has been going on since 2008 when there was one M43 camera and 3 lenses. However the M43 camera and lens selection contunues to grow every year. Today the lens selection is immense, B&H ...

  • Replied in US socialism.
    The USA haven't passed a budget for almost 10 years, can't agree if credible news comes from Breitbart, Fox News or NBC, have an amazing number of crisis ranging from handling the 11 million ...
  • Yes No, I don't think I will change. I might if I was in certain intelligence or military organisations -  but they would have rules and reccomendations for security practices. Article says that ...
  • No idea on the dead man switch. But N. Korea do have many tunnels deep into rock, which they have lots of. I visted the Korean DMZ a few years ago and toured one of the tunnels dug by the N. Korea ...
  • Well, you got some beautiful lenses on your list. Nothing to do now except take some photographs and post them in DPreview :)
  • The mechanism used for digital teleconverter is different than shoot & crop, and should give better results. In normal JPEG processing a block of 8x8 pixels is processed and represented as a unit, ...
  • Read the text carefully. Currently they have this gadget working for a distance of 7 feet. They've got a LOT of work to do to extend this until this could reach a cloud.

  • Both the 100-300 and the 100-400 get a little softer at the long end. But 300mm on the 100-400 is sharper and faster than 300mm on the 100-300. That being said, the 100-400 is quite expensive, and ...
  • You want something in the "G" series. You won't get anuthing new for that price. I see on eBay a few G6 (body only) that fall within your price range. You might even be able to pick up a G7 within ...
  • Created discussion thread Black vs Silver Lens cap
    I really don't care if my lenses are black or silver. So far I have been buying mostly black out of habit I suppose, but recently I got a silver lens. The silver lens cap is much easier to find in ...
  • I think you're at that spot known as the "bleeding edge".  :) The E-M1 is definitely superior to the GX-7 in this regard, but I suspect the there are darn few if any E-M1mii users since its release ...
  • Yeah, the jurie is still out on that. But, whether that number has been stable or changing slightly, that number is uncomfortably big for mankind. Agreed, more people, and we're running out of ...
  • No worries, Lanidrac. Your other posts led to a good discussion.
  • Unethical,a nd could well have no effect Impractical and unworkable The weather patterns that play an important part of hurricane formation arise over Africa. It would be worth considering the ...
