  • The 300/4.5 + Em5II worked very nicely. Heavy, but the IBIS allowed me to hand hold the rig. The EVF is good enough to focus where there is contrast without peaking/magnifying. JPG exposures were ...
  • That Konica/Minolta body should read 5D, the Maxxum 700si is a film body, my first AF camera.
  • I have an old mint Nikkor 300/ f4.5 and a Nikon adapter which I have not tried out. Stopping down where the EVF gains up and having IBIS might make it usable. A heavy thing with a tripod mount. I ...
  • That is a tempting camera ....:-) A fun shot.
  • When I first went into mFT, It was to get a body to hang my M Leica lenses on that would meter and have focus aids. So, my first mFT lens was the Leica M adapter....:-) Since then I've added ...
  • Ditto here Greg. I never felt bad that my mom or wife would not share their fruit cake...:-) My first pictures of 2018 were of a back yard storage shed needing replacement with mt M8. I can't ...
  • Thanks Greg, I'll keep your Smoking Guns tip in the active file. Our first visit to Collins Street was at their old location and our second was confusion to find them gone (to their present ...
  • You'd probably need and adapter with glass in it. One more compromise...:-\
  • I remember a fix for this by using Dymo label tape on the barrel so the lens would not collapse all the way. My 50 Cron is version 3 made in 1980....love it.
  • Great box, Greg. Ours came from Collins Street in a tin of all things. Didn't catch anything for Christmas, but the Mountain Cedar scourge arrived in San Antonio with the cold north wind and the ...
  • I still have my M5, well used it is, too. One lens quirk to be aware of is that the swing spot meter can interact with deep lens elements and ones that collapse and be damaged. This kept me away ...
  • Not all the mFT comparisons are awkward. V2 and OMD M5II
  • Back to you Peter. Hope all is well with yours.
  • Capture field dimensions are something like: at 6ft = 1.36ft X 1.04ft at 10ft = 2.27ft X 1.73ft at 12ft = 2.72ft X 2.08ft at 15ft = 3.40ft = 2.60f I know a corporate portrait photographer who uses ...
  • Susan, you have documented the disaster very well. Harvey stopped 30 miles short of us in San Antonio, but it did kiss a mimosa tree in our entry way for 90 gallons of debris. Summer vacations ...
  • An EVF is significantly cheaper to manufacture than the flipping mirror & prism box including the man-power needed to install and calibrate. Size may be a major gain to the user and I appreciate ...
  • I have read the answer to this elsewhere several times. It boils down to : Leica is involved and gives approval to use the Leica name after they have reviewed the lens design and samples. I have ...
  • Replied in Mine is fine
    After reading this thread I ran a second test on the 12/1.4 that I received this week. Checks were run on a GX85 (no AA filter) with my favorite brick wall as the target.  No signs of decentering ...
  • Replied in Ross :
    Maybe it is easier to pace the vibrations with the M8. I'll have to give it a test run....:-) She likes the M8 and that might be a useful side effect, too.
  • Don't be sorry.....some teen-agers, like my 17 year old grand daughter, are at that age where they are out of focus 23 out of 24 hours every day.......:-)  Not only that, they seem to vibrate on ...
