    But will your audience care to switch lenses? If not, then maybe the Panasonic ZS100 might be a better option - 24-240mm equivalent lens on a 1" sensor.

    If your audience wants the long lens and is...

    @jl123
    I've played with the EOS M5 and the Panny GM5, but don't have direct experience with the two cameras you're comparing. Whether or not the M100 or the GX850 make a good gift for your audience...

  • Each frame is still 20MP, so you just need a lens that is sharp at 20mp - though you're likely to want that across the frame, or else you won't see a whole lot of benefit around the edges - so stop...

  • 1. People who want to get into sports shooting, and already have m4/3 glass
    2. People who want to get into long-range sports shooting with smaller gear than a D500 or 7D2 with 70-200mm
    3. People...

    The sensor size difference between Canon APS-C and m4/3 is overblown - a 2x crop vs a 1.6x crop isn't that big of a difference. If m4/3 had a lens that was a 1:1 match with the 55-250 STM, then I...

  • I have an E-PM2. In fact, I had 2 E-PM2s at one point, along with a VF2. I went around the world with at least one of them in tow - Sweden, Norway, England, Thailand, Cambodia. Every picture on my ...
  • Buy the E-M10ii refurbished from GetOlympus for $299. Unless you absolutely need 4k video, the 10ii offers better controls and supposedly a better build (metal top plate vs poly). I'll admit that ...
  • Replied in Rent to Test?
    For m4/3 at least, it would be cheaper to buy than to rent - something like a refurbished Olympus E-M10ii goes for $200, with an entry-level prime or a kit lens, that's about $300-400. Compare ...
  • There were rumors in summer that Panasonic was going to refresh a model this fall, likely to be the GX9. I'm going to bet that if the rumor is true, the new camera is likely delayed a bit due to ...
  • I would've been curious to see m4/3 with the 42.5mm f/1.2 Nocticron, which can be stopped down to match the DoF on the 55/1.8 for the APS-C camera - we'd want to make it even, after all ;-)

    1"...

  • I've mounted everything but the 50-200 SWD on my E-PM2, and I've mounted all my pancakes aside from the 14/2.5 on the E-M1, and that's only because that lens isn't used much. It really is just a ...
  • I was two blocks from a Harris Teeter, four blocks from a Giant, and a block from the metro. Still needed a car to get to work in NoVA though. Gave it up when I came to Manhattan - just couldn't ...
  • I ended up folding some of the velcro flaps inward so that they'd stop sticking to things - but I also removed one of the dividers completely as I don't generally need it - I end up with two ...
  • From the image, these look like the same mesh pockets that I have on my DNA8 - the ones on my bag don't quite stretch enough for a 0.5L water bottle, and they're definitely not tall enough, ...
  • @mgrum:

    True enough, but if you're shooting for normal viewing sizes and distances, m4/3 is usually good up to ISO1600. And with primes available at most focal lengths at f/1.8 (and soon f/1.2),...

  • Here's a set of shots I took with my Tenba DNA 8 - pictures definitely help with trying to figure out something's size. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57759744
  • If you want to carry all of that, including the water bottle, the Switch/DNA 8 models will definitely be too small. I have a DNA 8, and can carry a body and 5 lenses (one large, four small), but ...
  • Tenba DNA8 would be perfect for your gear. You can even stack the 9-18 and 17/1.8 on top of each other and have just enough space for a flash or a small water bottle. Plenty of extra pockets, too.
  • Actually, legitimate watches are almost always marked "water resistant." Anything that has multiple pieces has the potential to leak, and any seal that's added in only adds to the resistance and ...
  • Replied in I've Decided
    Honestly, no idea. I've definitely seen a regular hand magnet hold up a second hand though, and while that doesn't count as magnetization, it probably isn't good for the watch. Then again, I ...
