  • Most of the places in the video are tourist hot spots (Times Square, Columbus Circle, Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park), or transportation hubs (Grand Central). New York's busy, but using Times...

  • I was in a wedding last fall where the paid photographer was using two 5D bodies. Ancient, but I think my friend and his wife are happy with the results, so there's definitely still life in these...

  • Replied in VF4 deals?
    Honestly, a PL6 with VF won't be that much more unwieldy than an OM-D; it just so happens that the VF2 on my E-PM2 is about 4mm too tall and too deep to comfortably fit inside my smallest camera ...
  • Darn, I guessed APS-C with 400mm and TC. People who think this is fake haven't ever really considered the possibilities with a long telephoto.
  • Replied in VF4 deals?
    I have the VF-2 for my E-PM2, and what I'll say is that if you are planning to always have the viewfinder attached, you might as well just get an E-M10 (or E-M5) instead. Pens are nice and ...
  • Why not? A 400mm lens on an APS-C body with a 1.5x teleconverter, at night, probably ISO3200 or higher, and cropped to high heaven. Add in 25 miles worth of atmospheric haze, and it's perfectly ...
  • True, but it's a much more deliberate style of shooting than one-handed, using the rear screen!
  • Not sure if you're agreeing with me or arguing with me... my statement comes from using my 12-40 (and 14-54 II) on my E-PM2, which is also a small (but not tiny) body. The lenses work fine, but ...
  • getolympus.com has the E-PL6 refurbished, with kit lens, for $160 right now. The kit lens can be sold off for about $75-90 (I sold two of them for around $85 each), netting you a <$100 camera, ...
  • I really think Panasonic's just rethinking their naming structure (again). GF used to be the enthusiast's rangefinder, which then got shifted to the GX, and GF was then moved to small rangefinder, ...
  • I imagine you're not in the US? The 12-40 is usually slightly more expensive than the 12-35 here. I wouldn't really recommend either one for the GM1, as the camera body's quite small in comparison ...
  • I'd avoid the 12mp sensor at this point, unless you can get one for "play money." They're good at base ISO, but by ISO 1600 you'll be pretty restricted in terms of DR, and noise will be a problem ...
  • The depth is pretty much dictated by the flange distance, so the camera must be at least 19mm deep. The body of the PL6 is about the same width and depth as the M10, which is still noticeably ...
  • If you're looking in the price range of a new E-M10 II, might I suggest waiting for Olympus to do a refurbished sale (maybe Labor Day?) and get a refurbished E-M5 II for about the same price? ...
  • As someone who owns both an E-M1 and an E-PM2, I can say that if you don't need a viewfinder, the Pens are definitely much smaller than an E-M1. The PL5/6 has the same footprint as the PM2, just ...
  • Birding More birding Cityscapes Landscapes (through an airplane window, admittedly) And plenty of portraits, too.
  • Weather sealing is more important to me for a camera like this - good for hiking, just throwing in a bag or pocket. It could be 35mm, so the Panny 20mm would suffice.

    Really, Stylus Epic sized and...

  • Alright, Oly can use Pen electronics with the 25/1.8, which retail for $299 each. Panny can use GM1 innards with an in-body 20mm. I feel like neither one should be priced more than $499, given the...

  • No, my issue isn't with lack of money, it's when there are people who are paid to produce results, but know nothing about the tools they're using, or any of the basics. Friends doing stuff for ...
  • I think $500 is doable. Oly can sell any variety of E-PMs and E-PL models for $299 with kit zoom, and Panasonic can sell a 25/1.7 for $249 regular price, $99 bundled. One of them can figure out how...
