On article What's missing? Ming Thein on the state of mirrorless (744 comments in total)

I'm looking forward to the New EM-1 ii with global shutter, hand-holdable high res, magic IS, and its trio of new weatherized f 1.0 primes also rumored to come and dominate the world. : )

In reality though I'd be happy with some solid sensor improvements and no viewfinder funkiness during sequential shooting. Longer battery life too.

Clint71: If I was looking for a second backup camera for landscape would you choose this over a Nikon D7200?

Only if my primary camera was a micro four thirds. The backup idea works best if you can share lenses with the primary.

On article Adobe issues Lightroom 6.2 apology and update (230 comments in total)

I've been using Lightroom since version 2 and this is the first time I found it unusable (even the .1 improved version hung on importing). Seems like they need to bring back extended beta periods, at least with major changes.

Much better HDR than my regular 6, but high iso doesn't look any better. I'm guessing some regular (non-hdr) shots are coming?

The wide model (closer to classic size prints) is great. It's hard to beat the shot to fridge speed when friends come over.

Surprised how well this works. He has many more on his website, worth checking out.

Definitely from the dark side of the force.

Now they need to make the small K1000 mirrorless version...

helltormentor: @ Richard Butler

Is this method just used by Sony? As far as I know, Olympus also records 12-bit RAW. Do these artifact also appear in Olympus RAW files when pushed?

Olympus and other manufacturers that have only 12 bit raw don't also have the lossy compression.

Looks wonderfully sharp in some shots. I'll continue to admire it from afar.

I know someone who loves photography and takes tons of photos and occasionally wins awards. She shoots a pawn shop Canon Rebel with a mediocre zoom. Her husband's a doctor, she works full time, and they have one kid, so income is not the issue. What she has is good enough. The world is now saturated with cameras that are good enough, in fact quite good, and it is an increasingly smaller pool of people interested in the latest release. Meanwhile smartphones kill off the $100-200 camera market.

In reply to:

dahod: I could be wrong but as far as I know it still doesn't support phase-detect autofocus and 4/3 lenses.

Maybe it's more difficult than it appears to migrate the technology from the OM-D EM1 but it's disappointing that Olympus continues to ignore their 4/3 users.

PedroMZ try using C-AF with your 50-200. I recently shot some runners with my SWD 50-200 and EM1 using C-AF and the latest firmware and I was surprised how many shots were tack sharp. The most difficult part for me is keeping the focus point on target with a burst. S-AF and fast objects is still not so great.

Zephir 750: Like Canon's, this looks like the umpteenth warmed up soup by Olympus.

Look at the Studio scene and compare it in raw to the EM1 and a Canon Camera like the 6D. The EM1 is super red with skin tones, and Canon less so, and the EM10 ll looks neutral/yellow. It's quite different from what I see.

jkrumm: New format works great on a large computer. Could be a little better on an iPad.

I downloaded a few raws and my general impression is that they look like the lenses used are not so great. Either that or I'm just used to the super sharp shots I get with my EM1. The 25mm shots especially looked soft and a little weird.

If you look in the gallery there are some that have the "raw" label. It's a little odd because they are paired with the out of camera jpeg, which is perhaps a mistake. You can download both the jpeg and raw file, very helpful.

jkrumm: Okay, now go back and test using Nikon and Canon fast lenses, just to make sure it's not the Sigma.

They used the FE 35 1.4 for the Sony, not the Sigma.

What you describe with the aperture is interesting, and I've noticed a similar problem with my EM1. It leads to a problem with flash, giving a dark viewfinder if I'm shooting a dark scene at f8, say, with flash and a low iso. I have to turn on viewfinder boost, which is not a realistic scene exposure wise, but at least works. What kind of preview in the viewfinder does the A7R ll give in the dark when using flash?

Surprisingly good for a small sensor swim cam. I would probably sharpen less.
