  • No Canon 35mm?

  • I've been slowly coming around to the Olympus 12-100 since it launched. My first reaction was too slow, but then I saw the first decent samples from it. Now off to vote for the prime. There's s...

  • To a degree....  So there should be no shutter shock with the GR.  Obviously not as good as the the 5 axis IBIS on my Pen and OMD, but I've rarely found the lack of IS a problem with my GR.
  • I'll have a play with my GR, later. Might have just specified a single ISO when I last experimented with it. Either way, cool mode for action photography, when combined with snap focus (if the ...
  • The constant aperture zooms, on this system, are all pretty spectacular.  You are right about the rendering qualities of different lenses.  Just pop over to the Leica forum to see how people can ...
  • Bit boring. That said, the old sensor is still closer to cutting (if not bleeding) edge than you might think.

  • For full frame, I'd go for the Sigma on a bang for buck basis, but the Canon looks pretty spectacular.

  • Because it's a better lens. The difference at the edges of the frame, between this and the Sigma, was striking when wide open, when Dpreview first put up some comparisons. Some people, who have...

  • Hmmm... Assuming noise increases in a reasonably linear manner, as you add more pixels, surely the difference isn't going to be visible when looking at prints of the same size. As it stands... If...

  • Ummm... pretty much everything is made in China.

  • If nothing else, this camera perhaps makes a bit of a mockery of Olympus and Panasonic continuing to provide the 16MP sensor in all but their flagship models. The decision to use DNG is...

  • Nice.  Were you able to take them all straight on, or was a certain amount of perspective correction (i.e. Lightroom Upright) required?
  • Phase detect sounds like the only reasonable solution.  They could do what Olympus did, when it was for a short time able to claim fastest single AF with one of the Pens, but that meant ...
  • Depends.... I think you are right there will always be some situations where snap focus works best.  If they include a touch screen (which I forget to add to the *unlikely* list) with touch AF, I ...
  • I think we'll be looking at: (1) Same lens (pretty spectacular already/not broke/don't fix) (2) Identical form factor and size
  • I've produced images I prefer, but this simple architectural photo seems to have been the critics choice, this year. Manchester - Layers of Old and New, (c) 2016 Jason Hindle
  • Some kind of Kodak Advantix camera, bought for my first foreign business trip, to North Sweden, in 1999. I really regret not buying a 35mm film camera instead. First digital was the 1MP Ixus...

  • In my experience, you get quite a lot of leeway to push the exposure in dull weather, with Olympus cameras. They can be overly cautious with the exposure.

  • And the Internet forum troll of the year goes to....

  • Commented on article YI M1 Sample Gallery

    This is potentially a curiosity buy, for me. It would be nice to see how it performs with the Olympus 12-40 or Panaleica 25mm f1.4.
