  • Good question.  Can anyone else with more experience with the G80/85 reply.  Also, is there some way of selecting a group of pictures to delete.
  • The goods were indeed bought through Ebay, and PayPal was the only mechanism available to pay for them.  And paid for with a platinum credit card.  However since the initial Ebay purchase turned ...
  • Interesting choices which are similar to ones I'll likely be making, in a somewhat similar situation.  I have an EM1 and an OM5ii, and recently added a panasonic G85 for video, because of a very ...
  • Created discussion thread Buy with PayPal ?- read the agreement
    Like  many others buying and selling on DPreview, I've used PayPal in transactions.  Finally having to deal with a situation in which the goods were DOA, I tried to return them to a vendor who is ...
  • Michael, Although I've barely hauled my butt - and my E-5 - out since our many walks with much-missed dog Gina (see link to photo book below), I will likely keep it as carrying the weight is better ...
  • I actually have my E-330 and E-420 up on Ebay, but am really starting to have second thoughts.  For what this still very usable (and barely used - like your E-5!) gear brings, I might as well keep ...
  • My family lives in Kamloops.  about 50 miles or 85 km, as the crow flies, away.  I can staying there for a week one summer when, for five days, the temperature never went below 39 Celsius, (that's ...
  • It's an interesting comparison, but a misleading one.  Put an EM1ii 45mm f1.8 or 12 f2 or 75f18 next to the same Sony with the equivalent lens.  And perhaps also include the price of each combo.
  • I know, Ben.   Handling and turning on the camera again, I could hardly believe how well it seems to be built.  Certainly won't be disappointed if it doesn't sell.  That ver handy automatic ...
  • No - more like 75 to 25.  Black and white definitely works better, especially with your tight framing and excellent processing, to emphasize strong lines and contrasts!
  • Replied in Here's another
    Love this one! Perfectly balanced and composed!

  • Have relisted E-330 and two lens kit and E-420 with 25mm pancake outfit on Ebay and bumped the "For Sale" forum with  the Ebay linkng which has links to both items. Am posting here because of the ...
  • Second that.  It's a very sharp lens with great bokeh and OOF colours.
  • Replied in Not possible
    I think that it is simply a matter of making financially sensible and economically viable R&D decisions in both cases, though Olympus seems - for a change - to be more honest about them.  That is, ...
  • The 12mm Olympus is a good lens, with which I've taken a few very good images.  It is probably not a great lens, but is compact, easily switchable to manual focus and quite fast,  This makes it ...
  • I was impressed by the simple, straightforward honesty of Olympus in stating that EM1ii is designed to be the best possible still camera and that Olympus decided that video would have to be a ...
  • This is somewhat implicit of what the Olympus imaging head honcho said quite explicitly in his interview with DPR some weeks ago: that video is a secondary feature for them.
  • Replied in
    Not at all.  I know something about professional video, mostly through friends and associates who are really good at it, and have a fair bit of experience with professional sound recording. ...
  • Interesting...and good to know that it was one of the later, better zooms.  The earlier ones - from virtually all makers - were mediocre at best.  This general rating very much includes the ...
