  • I have both the 12-100 and 12-40, but not the 40-150, so I won't compare with the latter. I will say that IMO the 12-100 has excellent IQ with no reservations. It's just great at any FL and any ...
  • I have the 30 in my arsenal and I like it. I chose it over the PL25 because it was much cheaper and, more importantly, because I read many testimonies about the notorious rattlesnaking issue of the ...
  • Yes, this shot looks pretty good. However, (1) You're not 100% certain it was with SDP and don't remember the snap distance, so we can't judge it confidently. DOF3 selects f/8 when snap distance is 2m. ...
  • I see no benefit in limiting Auto ISO from below. Keep it at ISO 100 and you'll get better images automatically and avoid overexposure when the light levels go up. (1) First of all, it's important that ...
  • SDP is a great idea which I find very useful. It allows me to instantly set a hyperfocal distance+aperture without thinking (DOF3), or a focus zone that reaches about 8m (DOF2) or 4m (DOF1), ...
  • I was puzzled by this, too, for a long time, with my 1II. Finally, I found out that this is an undocumented firmware limitation: Whenever the Fn Lever is set to mode 2 (switching between two AF ...
  • I'm using this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/124822345344 (it's a two-finger safety grip strap) and a small Lowepro HP120 bag as my EDC. A different approach that you might consider. BR
  • Exactly. I, too, had Snap assigned to Fn before the update. You can still switch to whatever Focus mode, including regular Snap, when disabling SDP. It's the same as with regular Snap, nothing new. ...
  • SDP is the greatest invention since sliced bread :-) Seriously, it makes the whole zone-focusing system on the GRIII even more powerful and versatile than it already was. I have long wished that ...
  • I own the E-M1II and 12-100, but have no experience with the Sony. The E-M1II's sensor has about 2 stops DR advantage over the VI (slightly less at base ISO) in real-life (according to www.photonst ...
  • 50-250/4 IS == Take My Money! Seriously, this is the perfect match for the 12-100. It is the ideal choice for those who favour FL range flexibility to a wider aperture, and also appreciate the ...
