  • Thank you very much for your thoughtful reply. I suppose there are no shortcuts in physics! Camera-specific performance is also important Many of my subjects are in motion. Often quite fast. I've ...
  • The difference between 105 and 400 would make this a rather heinous lie! I don't understand! Thanks.
  • Yes, I just looked. The FZ1000 is 25-400mm. Unless you mean the Stylus 1? Thanks.
  • Thanks and you're right I goofed on the specs for the FZ1000 and OM-D E-M5. The FZ1000 is 24-400 and the Olympus lens is 14-150.  (I also have the Oly 40-150, btw.) Thanks for your replies!
  • Created question thread Equivalence Question!
    I think I have a reasonably good understanding of all the debating regarding sensor and lens equivalency. The crop factor and sensor size dictate the reach, light gathering ability, and possible ...
  • Thanks to all. Think I'll hang onto the 12-50 along with the 14-150 II. is the 75mm f1.8 the portrait lens everyone wants? Looks like the 12-100 f/4 is on everyone's list. How about building this kit:
  • Replied in E-M5 Question
    Just ordered two port covers. I'm glad I took care of this before I blindly took the camera out in the cold rain and snow! Thanks to all. Dave
  • Maybe there should be a formal mathematical formula for the gold, silver, and bronze ratings based on a "Valid Pros" to "Valid Cons" ratio of say, 3:1.

    This example looks to be about 1:1.

    I say...

  • Replied in E-M5 Question
    Thank you for your reply. I have since found numerous threads on this topic. it looks like I must replace the accessory port cover, but not necessarily the hot shoe cover. Many users say the hot ...
  • Thanks for your answers. The lens 14-150 arrived Saturday. I've been testing it out. I must admit I rather like the smaller size of these M43 lenses! Now I'm wondering about the 75-300! Dave
  • Created question thread E-M5 Question
    Is the E-M5 water resistant without the hot shoe and the accessory port covers? I bought it from eBay.  Seems fine but does not have those covers. Thanks,
  • In a few days I will be receiving a M.Zuiko 14-150 II lens. I am wondering if there is now any strong reason why I should hang onto my 14-42 and 40-150 kit lenses, and my 12-50 EZ lens. I'm ...
  • So if I was to dump my D5100 and pick up a D500 to grow into, how would my existing three lens kit (35 1.8, 18-200 VR II, and 55-300 VR) compliment the new body? They aren't good enough to do it...

  • Barney clearly is one of the brightest and appropriately sensible fellows over there at DPR.

  • I'm put off by the f/6.3 on the long end. Does it matter much? And at what stop does diffraction start to become an issue? I have the impression that especially for action shooters in particular ...
  • And it's a darn good sensor!

  • I think the Nikon D500 is cheap. I couldn't build one myself for a million billion dolllars!

  • Created question thread LR6 Only Shows The RAWs
    I am shooting RAW+Jpeg, but Lightroom shows only the RAW copies. Where do I tell it to show both? Thanks! Dave
  • This is an exciting collection of sample photos, and an interesting array of observer opinions.

    But with all the variations in PC monitor screens, PC color calibration, and monitor resolution, how...

  • I want to see a 2016 worst camera round up!
