  • Replied in M43 is the tops
    My post was about M43 being a good format for a particular use, in this case a long hike. Other formats were not derided, I just pointed out that my previous camera set up was heavier. The light as ...
  • Thank you I have noticed too that the 12-35 often gets the best pictures on a hike. 12 (24mmFF) I think is plenty wide enough for most landscapes and the 12-35 range gives natural looking perspective.
  • Thanks for the link. Great stuff to be seen there. How many great unknown photographers are there out there waiting to be discovered like Vivian Maier?
  • " Dequivalence" Good one, I like it, spot on. I can think of several pictures including two of my favourites that I would not have taken had I still been using my heavy Nikon kit. The 100-300 is a ...
  • For business trips the LX100 or an EM5 +12-35 fits nicely into my briefcase and is not a bother to lug around. I use the LX100 for work to document structures I have to work on. The detail I get ...
  • This quote by a famous European statesman comes to mind "If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed" when I read some posts on this subject  by some of those ...
  • Replied in In my case...
    Dont make me laugh. We all know why it was invented.
  • Replied in In my case...
    I think most people think and do like this. But some who we can describe as armchair photographers do not. They like to show how cleaver they are on photo forums. Equivalence was invented just for ...
  • Replied in A conundrum
    A conundrum. The first picture is of Lago Santo ( Saint Lake) near Parma . The Second is of Lago Santo (Lake Saint) near Modena. Both have the same name but are they the same? Are they equivalent? ...
  • In the UK it was in my time 6 of the best for those who were naughty or did not want lo learn.
  • I have read quite a few thank you. I think from reading your posts that you might gain from reading a couple on my list.
  • Replied in Out of Hand
    I see this thread is starting to get out of hand as do all these threads on this subject. There are several posts by persons I shall not indicate who could do with studying in depth one or two ...
  • Replied in The human factor
    I find I am less fatigued carrying a lighter load on a hike. Being less tired means I am more aware to what I am seeing and photographing and I believe I get better pictures.
  • At last a comparison by somebody who has taken the trouble to use both cameras and look at the output from each camera and come to an honest conclusion based on fact. A rare thing here to see ...
  • I fear some of the "Equivalence" crew do not arrive even at 11+ let alone CSE
  • I had 3 lenses from that covered from 7 to 100 or 14 to 200 in FF terms thus a wider choice of focal length than a FF24-120. That I did not use them on the pictures I posted here is another story ...
  • Good detailed post. Take any serious textbook and it will say about lenses what you have written. However our friend Bustard has the pretence to know better than what is written in all academic ...
  • Which gives  crop factors of  2 and1.33 respectivly which is a very modest difference. An article on TOP said that there was very little difference in the output produced by the two systems and ...
  • Replied in Sorry but...
    I had one before the I bought the 7-14 but I foolishly sold this wonderful little lens. I am thinking about rebuying one for hiking.
  • Managed to win a challenge with this shot of the Mediapadana station and bridge in Reggio Emilia both by Calatrava. Challenge results Taken with the Panasonic 100-300 on my EM5. I love this lens ...
